I watched the F1 race from Monaco live but abandoned my note-taking efforts after drifting off to sleep twice. I never enjoy Monaco (or Valencia) and usually don't watch for that reason, but gave it a try for the first time in three years. Mistake. This doesn't bode well for my viewership for Valencia either.
Rather than just rag on about how boring I found it (as I did, regrettably, on Twitter), I'm going with the "if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all" deal.
I think the upshot is this: since changing the track appreciably in Monaco is out of the question, the continuing evolution of today's cars have made overtaking on the track at speed virtually impossible. So the race broadcast becomes a discussion of the history, sights and beauty of Monoco.
