People dis Monaco but I think it's a must have on the calendar.
Yes the cars have outgrown it, yes it's bloody well near impossible to pass, yes it can be processional and no it wouldn't get a start if it wasn't already on the calendar but it presents a challenge to the driver and the teams they won't find anywhere else.
It requires more strategic thinking, places greater emphasis on car set up to maximise qualifying performance, asks of the driver a level of concentration and focus they don't need to apply anywhere else and punishes driver errors like a sadistic school headmaster.
Yes it's full of phoney people who don't know or really care about the race and who's main concern is being seen with equally phoney people who don't know or care about the race but it's a race like no other and part of this sport should be about exposing the teams, that car and the drivers to a variety of challenges otherwise we just might as well have 20 races in Barcelona.
