Lewis Hamilton has called for some changes to the Monaco GP weekend format, saying that the lack of racing opportunities mean that the fans know it'll be a processional race.

Hamilton was asked about his opinion on the classic days of racing on the streets of Monte Carlo, in light of it being the 50th anniversary of Jackie Stewart's win at Monaco.

The reigning Champion explained that he might not necessarily agree that it was the Golden Age of racing, but that the cars were considerably easier to race in such a confined enviroment back then.

"Now we have much bigger cars, much faster," Hamilton told select members of the media, including RacingNews365.com.

"Almost zero opportunity to overtake in a race. But it's been the case for some time. And, in my opinion, it needs to change.

"We've had the same format for years. It's the best venue. It is the most beautiful place that we get to race at. But you already know that it's never exciting for the fans."

Hamilton explained that he felt the durable tyres, triggering a one-stop strategy, added to this boredom.

"It's a one stop race with these hard, long stints that we get to do," he said.

"And, as I said, it's on the list of difficult places to overtake, it is off the scale. Highly unlikely you ever get an opportunity to do so.

"And so I don't think fans enjoy that. I don't know what the solution is. But, I'm hoping when we are looking forwards to future generations, it can be a more exciting race for people."
