Just take it easy and hope for some standard Monaco chaos.... "And Blackhander crosses the line and collects McLaren-Honda's first points of the year..." :]
Haha that or I'll teach even maldonado a thing or two about crashing
Maybe you'll be the reason for the chaos and win by virtue of your own ineptitude. ;)

Hasn't Button already been confirmed now though?

Any other GP and I would consider Button a shoe in, but as ha is the Mclaren Honda Ambassador, he has a lot of commitments on behalf of Mclaren and Honda that week end so maybe more beneficial to them not to let him race.
He is a nice well respected guy, ex world champ that speaks well in English and Japanese so will be a huge asset to the team if he does not have to commit to the race. At best, he will get a point or two if in the car, so where is the "value" to McHonda?

I dont know about this one

One name tweeted was Alex Rossi :nod:
But that does not look on now. :-((
Considering why McLaren have an open seat at Monaco, whoever tweeted Alex Rossi's name as a replacement is an idiot.

It was Jo :uhoh:

If / when Jenson Button races in Monaco, it should rain as well. Hopefully, he creates magic with that lawnmower of a car!

As much as I'm looking forward to seeing JB out there, it'll probably break down on the formation lap.
I remember when this website was all fields.

If it does I hope he pulls a Kimi and just strolls straight onto a yacht and has a beer.

I hope the car can get to the end. It's kinda cool he's got a chance to have a do over for his last race.

I'm kind of hoping there is a freak race and he nabs a podium then for the rest of the season the McLaren can only score small points and he ends up winning the three-way team mate battle.
