Maybe a bit late for a preview. But that are sure not Kimis words! He said he hate Monaco in a interview. Here they write "It´s a magical place."

Kimi Monaco preview
21st May 2014
The results will come!

This is the weekend we all have been looking forward to come. The streets of Monte Carlo bring always a little bit extra for all the exciting challenges of motor racing.

It's a different circuit, we will use different tyres and the environment will be different, so there is nothing to compare to it.

Especially this time it will be even more exciting with these new generation cars. These cars tend to slide easily and in Monte Carlo there is no room for that. Most of all it¹s a question of the best drive of the year ­ the 100% concentration with the 100% working car all the 78 laps of the Grand Prix. That's the only way to be happy after the race in Monaco. Monaco is a unique circuit and the qualifying is more important than any other circuit on the calender. Obviously for us, the qualifying is something we really have to get right. After last race in Barcelona we had a quite good test. It started with some issues, but all in all, I was happy with the work we managed to do there. The car is getting better for me and step by step we come closer to the front runners.

Obviously I feel the results will be coming, but it seems to take even more tougher pushing than ever before. Now the full focus is on Monaco. It will be extremely busy since the very beginning on Thursday morning. Everybody is targetting to have a nice, clean weekend and you cannot afford to loose any practice time to get the feeling right with the car between those barriers.

It's a magical place. The paddock is full of people and the atmosphere is just great. Along the years I have experienced how brilliant it is to get everything right in Monaco.

really sad and careless words from Magnussen

Magnussen: Maybe Kimi had been drinking!
By Editor on Tuesday, May 27, 2014
McLaren-Mercedes


Kevin Magnussen has joked that Kimi Raikkonen was drinking when they collided during the Monaco Grand Prix.

Magnussen had been struggling with power unit issues during the closing stages of the race when he was hit by Raikkonen into the Loews hairpin.

Raikkonen was reprimanded for the incident and went on to finish 12th, two places behind Magnussen.

"You can't close the gap completely in Loews because the cars can't turn sharp enough to get around - but I closed it as much as possible," he told Danish media.

"I'd been having problems with the engine. So Kimi had a go at me and got really close. I didn't expect that and turned in early. I saw his front wing and stopped turning. But at that point it was too late."

"I don't know if he had been drinking or what, but he didn't see me and reversed over my front wing and on to my car.

"I couldn't do anything because he was parked on my front wing and I didn't want to damage my car. So I had to wait on him and lost the position but luckily he had to pit."

Every "important" driver thinks its his respontibility to say these things:
1. I dont know. Maybe he had been had a few drinks too much. He drives with the luck of drunk.
2. Alonso is the best driver on the grid.
3. Vettel istn so good his four championships proved him to be.
4. Its not far until Merc guys will blow up.
5. Massa is better driver than his results are.

Magnussen is

How many times has that idiot driven straight into the back of Kimi? It was a racing accident. He admitted he didn't look in his mirrors before turning. If he would have looked, he would have seen Raikkonen was clearly quicker into the corner.

My biggest issue with this weekend is the stewards. How can you give Chilton and Raikkonen the same "penalty" for two actions which clearly had differing levels of culpability?

Kimi seemed to agree with you Sonny. He was amazed the stewards didnt even notice the Chilton case even if Charlie Whiting had taken the issue to them. Or had he? Or did Ferrari even complain about the accident with Chilton? The stewards looked into it after Kimi talked about it in his hearing.

Kimi has also spoken about the modern F1 in Norway,saying the speed and grip levels of these cars doesnt satisfie him at all. He thinks F1 needs to change, but on the other hand he says they dont make the rules and under these rules its difficult to do nothing to it.

I totally agree with Kimi, can you imagine if the same had happened to Alonso? Ferrari would have made a fuss about it immediately!

It almost felt that nobody saw and nobody cared

Anyway...

I think Alonso is starting to feel the "heat" of Kimi approaching and breathing on his neck...

I hope for a better two thirds of the championship for Kimi

Chilton thinks Raikkonen clash cost him first F1 points in Monaco
By Jonathan Noble Thursday, June 5th 2014, 21:04 GMT

Max Chilton reckons he could have added to the Marussia Formula 1 team's points tally at the Monaco Grand Prix if not for the clash with Kimi Raikkonen.

Chilton broke his front wing after colliding with Raikkonen's rear wheel as he tried to unlap himself during the first safety car phase in Monaco.

Although the incident was not caught on television, Chilton said there was little he could have done to avoid the incident because he felt the Finn had seen him.

Explaining what happened, Chilton said: "You pass the safety car line twice and normally Charlie [Whiting] gives the message that the cars can now overtake the cars in front.

"I came in to Turn 1 and asked my engineer, 'when are we going to be allowed to overtake the cars in front?

"By the time I got to Casino my engineer said 'okay, now overtake'. So I came out of Casino, following Kimi and I stayed to the right, the whole way down into Mirabeau.

"He was on the left. I didn't lunge him - I just showed my nose. And to me he turned in late. I thought he had seen me and let me go."

The race stewards believed the clash was a normal racing incident, but Chilton reckons that there was little he could have done more to stop the collision once Raikkonen turned in.

"I would do it again [like that]," he said. "I thought it was an open move but Kimi didn't see me. It was slightly frustrating.

"It wasn't a lunge. I saw his onboard, he did his belts up, did a dial change, turned in and then looked in his mirror.

"I have never been in a top team and I don't know if they get a message, but I would have thought they would get a message saying, 'watch out there will be cars'. I would look in my mirror and then turn.

"It was annoying as he was on for a good race and I think we could have been in the top ten."
