What a sore loser Rosberg is ... even after winning 7 in a row, he can't concede a pass from Lewis after making a mistake and drives him off the road instead !!

What happened to the "No double move" rule and the "One car width from the edge of the track" rule?? How the hell is this not 100% Rosberg's fault and how the hell did he get away without getting a 10 grid penalty for Monaco??

This is real BS. The sport does not want a 3 time repeat champion, that's all there is to it.

Things are really looking up for RB; The chassis is already the best on the grid and now another ~30hp in Canada? This could be really really good. Things will begin to get mighty interesting, especially if we have a Merc DNF in Monaco, which is very possible. Also remember; Riccardo was absolutely flying last year in MC, he posted the fastest lap. This engine change could make for some good races going fwd. Imagine if RB let him cover Kimi in Spain, then a win in Monaco before heading into Canada with an upgraded power plant? I guess I just wrote a movie script ha so many what ifs - one can only hope.

Yes RBR is very interesting now, I just hope the engine remain a notch below the Benz to make it an even fight with different advantages. We don't want to swap one unbeatable car for another, at least I don't.

Monaco! Let's see what Verstappen will be up to this time.

Grosjean was just in the way. Leave Max alone, he knows what he's doing.

On a serious note: GO MAX!!!!!!1111!!!!!

Engine data confirms upgrade progress.

Quote:
Now Renault technical director Bob Bell has confirmed that the improvements have verified with data – which has left him encouraged about what will be delivered when it races for the first time.

“The engines are all instrumented so we know what we are looking for and we can confirm all that through data,” he told Motorsport.com.

“The engine appears to be delivering what it said on the tin – and we would have been surprised if it didn't. All the signs are that the engine upgrade is doing what we thought it would do.”

Riccairdo is the only one not fist pumping, poor guy must have been gutted. Hope to see consistent podiums from Ric going forward.

This time he barely said anything before he flew home
