Settle down now, we haven't spoiled the results of the Monaco Grand Prix. For one thing, the race itself is on Sunday. For another, there hasn't been a Senna driving in F1 since Ayrton died in 1994. We're talking about Bruno Senna, his nephew who has been working his way up the ranks in pursuit of a hard-earned Formula One race seat to follow in the footsteps of his triple-world-champion uncle.

Bruno Senna drives in the second-tier GP2 series, from which the latest crop of F1 drivers have been plucked and in which Senna just scored his first victory of the season. And it wasn't just any track – it was in Monte Carlo, the same track where Ayrton won six times. Bruno practically led from pole, taking the lead from Pastor Maldonado, renowned for his pace at the Monaco track, and leading a flawless race all the way to the checkered flag – ahead of Maldonado and Senna's team mate Karun Chandhok – and setting the fastest lap in the process. Senna's victory puts him in second place for the GP2 title, only two points behind Giorgio Pantano who retired early from the race after an accident.

      Thumbs down for spoilers.

      Come on Autoblog, get your act together with Spoiler Alerts.

      What's really frustrating is that you have used them in the past. Why have you stopped? Are your heads all messed up now with dope, drink and nitromethane?

      Great to see Senna's name on the news again.. He was the best
      • 6 Years Ago
      He thought he had a catchy headline and a hook to start the story... too bad it backfired.

      Funny how I made a suggestion about spoilers in the Stig post... guess I was hoping you guys would, you know... listen to us.
      • 6 Years Ago
      How about adding SPOILER ALERT to the title of the thread. I was planning on watching this one.
      • 6 Years Ago
      little bit blunt of you about ayrton's death, wasn't it? there are more graceful ways to say someone isn't around anymore.

      I'm disapointed too. I was hoping to hear about K-9 carnage.

      Thanks a lot man. Speed doesn't air that until Sunday.

      I'll cancel my recording now.

      How about no spoilers before the jump in the future?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yeah, no kidding. Just because GP2 doesn't have as big an audience doesn't mean you don't need a "Spoiler!" warning.

        That, plus the fact that the only Senna still in racing is in GP2, sorta ruins it. Nice moves guys. Call it "GP2 results" next time, that warns of both spoilers, and, as an added bonus, doesn't inherently ruin the race for those who want to watch it.

      I was going to complain about the lack of a spoiler alert, but everyone beat me to it. I check this site many times a day and I am use to you guys using a spoiler alert. Now this makes me not want to check the site until races are over I guess.

      Wow, never thought the internet would start spoiling GP2 races for me. It's not that big a deal to me or anything... just surprising to see a post on GP2 of all things.

      It's like this for everyone who follows sports that are watched more abroad, or that happen when it's the middle of the night here. We're so used to no one else caring that the recent attention that everything gets online, and the subsequent spoilers, are just something we're not used to.
