Man it must be nice to be Ferrari. How many times did they narrowly get 4 tires off the skirts on the chicanes? And of course they just get warnings from the stewards. Had that been McLaren, they woulda had some type of penalty issued.

Yea, what were the penalties on Ferrari for missing the chicanes?
Shouldn't they have lost their finishing positions for that?

In fairness, FIA never stated what and if there'd be any penalties but rather, there be warnings and they did warn Ferrari about Massa and Kimi having all 4tires "off".

Congrats to Button :clap: what an amazing season but next season will be different no doubt as team would have enough time to prepare with or without Ferrari/Toyota/Red Bull/Renault and whomever decides to pull out next season.

And why were they saying tickets were expensive? Did they mean about $635 per race day only, b/c thats about what awesome seats cost for all 3 days at other tracks.
That was the price for race day only in a grandstand. It cost me multiple thousands of dollars to watch from the balcony of one of the apartments last year, but it was worth every penny. You have never heard F1 cars sound so awesome as in those narrow streets and echoing off the buildings.

I have a dumb question....So Button for most of his carreer was average. And suddenly he is hailed as a great driver coming to his own etc...

So how about the actual F1 cars? Aren't the cars the x factor?

Seems to me that most F1 drivers are pretty much on par with each other but the cars are what makes them look good or bad. For Button of even Hamilton to win Monaco says a lot about the cars they drive.

Just think the F1 drivers are just lucky test drivers who got a shot in a great team or a poor team. What do you think?
