The Monaco Grand Prix faced a growing barrage of criticism Monday after Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton described it as "probably the most boring race ever".It was the first Monaco race without the deployment of a safety car since 2009 .That Ricciardo could win from pole position in a car that had had its power reduced by 25 percent confirmed both his maturing talent and the enforced tedious mediocrity of the racing. Alonso, of McLaren, was only echoing what championship leader and defending champion Hamilton had said after finishing third behind Ricciardo and fellow four-time champion German Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari. The predictability of the Monaco race is normally forgiven if there is some incident to enliven the glamorized choreography of what is a largely corporate festival, but this year's contest plumbed new depths of mediocrity.Hamilton suggested looking over the Atlantic for inspiration to create a closer race.
