Have to be absolutely spewing wouldn't you?
I was watching it last night and as far as I knew he was in 2nd or 3rd with contention with xxx laps still to go.
Then I hear this morning that he's retired with engine problems on lap 49?
Does this guy have no luck at all, or does he just drive in such a way he puts some serious stress on the engine.
I seem to think he drives strangely, he always seems to have similar problems, i dont know.
I cant beleive that schumacher got penalised like he did, for me, it didnt look intentional. If anyone has actually seen this corner irl you will know how tight it is and how easily one small lock up can basically stop you taking that corner.
Anyways, monaco is a dead race, its boring watching follow the leader.

williams now run the Cosworth engine (ford), while this marque of engine has a proud tradition and many victories under its belt, it has not seen a racetrack for more than a few years so there is a steep development curve for williams this year. I watched this race and it wasn't a bad race IMO. Webers' engine failed after a safety car period because these cars do not have fans for their cooling system and are reliant on the spped of the car to put cold air through the radiator.
Weber can do well with the right car under his bum, Flavio Brivattore is webers manager and for those who don't know who he is, he is the Boss of the Renault F1 team. Alonso's contract is up at the end of this season and if weber can impress enough he might land the best car in the field.
Really? I reckon he's an awesome driver.
What a magnificently intellegant (sp?) post. He is one of the most highly regarded drivers in the paddock.

I bet you think your a top shit driver and could go out in a f1 and get 2nd on the grid.
Webbers an excellant driver but just needs a bit of luck his way. I don't like the 2 races per engine rule. especially when you bring in a totally new engine for the season

Webber seems to be a better than average driver but I don't think he's quite good enough to be world champion unless he scores a very exceptional car one of these years
Bit late on this thread, but I watched the Monaco race and both Webber and Rosberg had exhaust failures that melted a wiring loom and hence the car stopped. Very rare to see Webber angry, but he hurled the $100k+ steering wheel back into the car in frustration when he got out. Anyway, the engine was fine, he used it for its second GP in Britain. It probably wouldn't have lasted the distance for the race, but we'll never know seeing as he was an innocent bystander to a careering Toyota.
He's driven the balls off every car he's been in. Give him the reliability that Alonso or Michael Schumacher enjoy and he'd be a contender. His only hope is a transfer to Renault at the end of this year when Alonso departs, or he will never get to be in a top team.
