Lewis needs to stay focussed now and not be affected by having another cheat in the camp. He is the best driver in F1 and needs to go out and prove it.

Why do they bother racing round this stupid rich man's playground of a street. Monaco is the most boring Grand Prix around, no overtaking happens at all.

True, it's not a great race for the spectator but the drivers love it and it's an institution now so no chance it will ever be dropped.

A great win for Lewis today at the British GP, with Rosberg dropping out it's a close championship again.

Hamilton deserves a bit of luck because he had two DNFs before todays race so it's evened out a little bit.

Closing the gap down to 4 should sort out Hamiltons head now, if he can cut out mistakes he'll take the title before the final race and it's daft double points.

Nice win for Hamilton.

Is Ricciardo a better driver than Vettel?  Or in the past the German had the better car and package than Webber.

Great win for Lewis and for once the cheat got justice.

The battle between Vettel and Alonso is the best bit of racing I've seen in the F1 for years.

Say what you like about the effect on the racing the safety changes have had, even 10 years ago Raikonnen wouldn't be simply nursing a bruised ankle after that crash.

Good to see Hamilton get a bit of luck when he needed it, makes the title race a lot more interesting.

I assume you mean Rosberg and the cheat reference being the off in Q3 from a few weeks ago denying Hamilton pole?

Well the title battle is being ruined by continual reliability problems.

I reckon in pre-season he must've swerved to avoid a black cat that crossed his path, went under a ladder and crashed into a mirror shop, he's had a really rough season, he deserves a lot of credit for making a fight of the title given the luck he's had with the car.

All Roseburg needs to do is keep his car on the road and he will win this years championship. Hamilton is plagued with luck, all of it bad.
