What's great about Monaco?

Sir,

What on earth possessed you to describe the 1982 Monaco Grand Prix as one of the best ever in your January edition?

Speaking as one who paid good money to be there, I can barely describe the disappointment as one clown after another failed to get to the flag. If I'd wanted to see a farce, it would have been rather cheaper not to say more entertaining to have gone to the West End where, if memory serves, No Sex Please, We're British was playing.

I am, yours, etc. Giles Newton, Llanishen, Monmouthshire
