Very Wet Monaco Grand Prix May Be Won By The Safety Car

GIF via YouTube

A silver Mercedes may win the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix, and it’s not the car of Nico Rosberg or Lewis Hamilton. Go, Safety Car, go! The race was so wet, it took seven laps before Race Control went to green, and shortly afterwards, Jolyon Palmer’s Renault slid right into a barrier.

Under the subsequent return to yellow, Kimi Räikkönen ate a barrier, too, dragging his wing along with him.

This is going to be one long Monaco race.

The fun thing is, if you watch the replay carefully, you could see that he loses control of the car right when he goes over the zebra crossing..
