Alright, apart from the race in which only 1 overtake stuck...
Thoughts on the longer stint being the winning strategy for both Seb and Dan?

Was great to hear Vestappen complain, but on the other hand I feel for Kimi.

I think that even if Vettel had pitted first, he had the pace to undercut Kimi (provided traffic worked out for him). It was Kimi's lack of pace in that phase of the race compared to Seb, not the strategy that lost him the race IMO. Kimi didn't really get stuck behind anyone like Bottas and Max did behind Sainz.

Either way it's three years in a row with a very unhappy driver on the podium.

Glad that Wehrlein was able to get out of the car okay. Sure was a weird one when the coverage cut to that shot!

And how was JB with Fernando on the radio? "I'm going to pee in your seat!"

I'd much rather Kimi win than Seb, but no matter what they did with the strategy, Seb was gonna have him. The Ferrari was clearly the best car at Monaco and Kimi was holding Seb up. The Red Bulls and Bottas were close. Hell by the end of it, Kimi was under serious threat from Dan. Luckily for him it's super tough to pass at Monaco otherwise it would've been pretty clear cut.

Great to see Dan's strategy work out. He seemed quicker than Max but likely wouldn't have gotten ahead of him without that strategy.
