    So what do you think? We will see more cars crashed or taken out because of the new areo package? Hopefully dumb ass Max Mosley will realize to change to rules back.

    I think he means less downforce at a maximum downforce track. I'm not sure, I think the drivers will know not to push as hard cause the downforce levels are not there.

    Actually what I mean is I am referring to Nick Heidfeld concern earlier in the year that with new Front wings there would be more accidents caused because they are so huge. Now with Monaco having so many barriers and being tight and I am sure there will more contact.

    You just have more wing contact, no different than before. No big deal, I don't see any problems here. Any time you stick wings on a car their vulnerable small or large especially on the front.

    Well those slicks are there and the cars are actually quicker than last year.Yet with 30-50% of last year's downforce cut(initially was 50% but teams are good with clawing back),Monacomight not be an ideal place to show the 2009-spec cars full potential.I just dont wanna see any carbon shards in the swimming pool(none of the Scuderia's atleast).

    I'm looking forward to Monaco. With the different trye options and some cars with KERS there should be some good overtaking for a change.
