Lewis Hamilton and Prince Albert might well have the wellbeing of the celebrated grand prix at heart but there is a danger that the sport is losing its romance. Such is the competitive nature of the business, and of the individuals involved, that saying anything remotely critical about an activity in general or a performance more specifically is about as likely as watching a free-to-air Test match. So the aftermath of the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday was quite something to behold. Wow, it was intensely boring. Oh my God, yes. Reading those remarks back, they look a little odd. Either way it looks a bit weird.
The faster that cars drove on them the quicker they would need changing and that might run the risk of taking more than one pit stop, a potentially catastrophic tactical error.
So everyone drove slowly. Hamilton diagnosed another problem with the race, however, and that was Monaco itself. The picturesque principality, so beloved of leathery old men and their unbuttoned lilac shirts, does not have quite the right topography for modern Formula One. But Hamilton has a plan to fix that.
Or maybe the format should change. A civil engineering subcommittee of Hamilton and Prince Albert is a prospect that naturally excites.
Lewis lives in the principality, of course, and surely knows the streets well, flaneuring around the more obscure routes as he contemplates how little tax he pays. These two men getting together over a Pschitt! Since Bernie Ecclestone relinquished the steering wheel to Liberty Media last year, the sport has changed its race times to encourage European TV audiences.
It has realised women are people too and replaced grid girls with grid .
It has got a new logo and will even unveil an international theme tune, composed by the bloke who did the score for Iron Man 3. All this could be seen as a certain amount of tinkering around the edges.
More systemic problems in the sport are still visible from space. Then there are the regulations around aerodynamics, which go way over my head but have contrived to create a situation where only three teams have won a race since All these problems are for the owner to work out and new aerodynamic rules come into effect next year.
Perhaps Liberty could also ship Hamilton off to Baku with his planometer and see how he can shake things up. Whatever is planned, it might be best to do it quickly, however. Despite a slight uptick in the UK this year, the long-term trajectory for F1 viewing figures across the world is downwards. But with Nascar also experiencing a sharp decline, perhaps motorsport is experiencing something more existential.
Most journeys are characterised by snarl-ups and that platonic ideal of an empty, winding road is increasingly a myth I sat in traffic in the Cairngorms last year, go figure. Perhaps the car is losing the romantic association it held in the public imagination for a century.
After all, the last thing driving was supposed to be was boring.
