- Are you sure you want me to wave this now?


26w ago


Well, where to start?

Following on from a not too exciting (and that is being kind) Monaco Grand Prix, F1 went to Canada, where races are always great, right?


This was beyond dire.

Sebastian Vettel won from pole and apart from Lance Stroll and Brendon Hartley giving us some much needed entertainment on lap one, that was it.

I have no idea who else finished where, as I fell into a coma around lap 30, and right now, I'm too busy trying to appease my wife, who had to miss Antiques Roadshow and Poldark for me to watch this appalling race.

The coverage started with a supermodel (and activist, though they did not say what for), telling us she was not a fan of F1.

Of course, who better to wave the chequered flag?

Here then, is the race, such as it was, in 15 tweets...

1 - Those sunglasses might be grounds for divorce though...

2 - Is that rock at the back to throw at the engineers?

3 - And he'd do a better job than most!

4 - And then THE F1 MUSIC STARTS!

5 - Lap one and Brendon Hartley's short F1 career is probably now done.

6 - If you can't go past, go over..

7 - Stroll on Claire.

8 - Half distance and if Toto can't stay awake, the rest of us are done for.

9 - And he hopes to keep going for 24 hours at Le Mans?

10 - Come back Monaco, all is forgiven.


12 - It was a THRILLER! For 15 seconds.

13 - Please make it end soon..

14 - I'm a celebrity, get me in there!

Normally, the race results would follow here, but instead, here is a picture of a Mountie with a beaver, which is no doubt FAR more interesting.

  • Comfy day watching Seb smash Lewis' and hearing him whine about it? Sounds like a perfect race to me. Maybe you should switch up to being the Stadium Super Trucks diary or NASCAR diary since you're so excited by crashing and shitty, accident causing overtakes.

    • Wow another “fan” only interested in the crashes and overtakes. Why don’t you take a look at the strategy? You know the thing that wins most drivers the race. Beside tell me what they...

    • I'm guilty as charged. Yes, I like to see action and overtakes rather than a boring old procession. Strategy is for chess players.
