I agree, Checo's moves on JB and Fernando were fair. Adrian Sutil owned Loewes, though. Threaded the needle every time he passed there.
One thing that annoyed me during the race repetitively was Fernando taking a much wider entry at that hairpin. He got jumped twice (and collided with JB if I remember correctly) there because of that. Losing places at Rascasse was unfortunate, since Sutil made him run wide at the exit. Not on form this weekend, for sure.
Yeah, had to be a mechanical failure. Got a little concerned with Felipe being asked to wear a neck brace after the incident. You never want to see a driver get hurt. Good thing Pastor walked away from that shunt as well.
I wonder if either Grosjean missed his braking point, or Ricciardo braked a bit early? Or if Grosjean's brakes were fading.
Safety Car definitely helped the cars up front. Red Bull thriving during Saftey Car periods, just like last year.
Curious to see the forthcoming tyre changes. Hopefully it doesn't favor Red Bull... those whiners.
