F1 Monaco GP: If it’s not one thing it’s another…

by on May 28, 2013

Here is the quickest summary of the Monaco GP you’ll read all week!

Never disappointing, the Monaco Grand Prix
If it’s not one thing it’s another, I think you’ll agree

A few spots of rain during qualifying
Makes pole position seem quite death defying

But the drivers are pros, they know what they’re doing
Meanwhile in the media, a story was brewing

A secret test, which was conducted in Spain
Brought Mercedes and Pirelli much pain and no gain

Rivals waved fingers and disapproved
While Mercedes stood firm and relatively unmoved

There was a sense of betrayal and lack of trust
And perhaps sour grapes, under unsettled dust?

With the media frantic and Monaco a buzz
Let’s take a look back at the Grand Prix that was

There were crashes and cautions and safety car stints
And then clean ups and pit stops in-between sprints

A red flag was waived before the action subdued
Then a mad dash to the finish quickly ensued

There isn’t much passing in Monte Carlo
But don’t tell Adrian or Kimi or Sergio

They found clever ways, to make a quick pass
Though some moves were rude and a wee bit crass

To a young Nico Rosberg, this day belonged
His winless streak, would not be prolonged

Second was Vettel, who got satisfaction
By snagging fastest lap with little distraction

Webber was third, to round out the top three
Spraying chilled champagne quite happily

Fourth was Lewis unable to give chase
Then Sutil in fifth, who drove a great race

Jenson Button was sixth, with Alonso behind
who did not seem to be, in the right frame of mind

Then Jean-Eric Vergne in his STR
Was eighth crossed the line and first at the bar

Di Resta was ninth, just four tenths back
And Kimi was last in the points paying pack

Next stop is Canada, the land of good cheer
Where the winters are cold….but so is the beer
