The track

First used for Grand Prix racing in 1929, the Monaco Grand Prix has been a fixture on the F1 calendar since 1955.

The circuit is unchanged in several places from the version first used eight decades ago – but the track is now bordered by tall safety barriers instead of lamp posts and straw bales.

Of course what most people associate with Monaco is the glamorous side of the event. But 78 laps around its tight confines also provides one of the toughest tests for a Formula 1 driver.

The weather

A wet weather front is moving out of the area but it could affect practice on Thursday (Monaco does not adhere to the convention of holding practice on Friday) and possibly even qualifying on Saturday.

    Is it just me, or does Webber always say the most ridiculous things when he is naming off interesting things about a circuit before his lap?

      ‘…and there’s lots of big boats there!’ haha! He’s probably told what to say, but either way that guy makes me laugh.

  3. Interesting stat I just found on autosport forums: Trulli has never been out-qualified by his team mate in Monaco. Impressive record.

    1. Especially to say he’s been paired with Alonso too.

    I wish I had that simulator…

  5. That was the hardest Mark has had to work on that simulator lap so far this year… you can see the whole thing wobbling about a few times as he tried to “drive” and speak at the same time!

    Some years ago, I was on a trip to Nice, and I drove my rental car to Monaco.

    I’d hoped to be able to somehow follow the F1 circuit, but failed. It seemed that some parts were either inaccessible by car, or that the track ran against the flow of some one-way streets. For instance, I seemed to only be able to go through the tunnel in the opposite direction to that taken by the race.

    Since then I’ve looked in vain for a description of the circuit in terms of the road/street names.

    Does such a description exist somewhere. Is it actually possible to drive a car over the course on a normal day when Monaco isn’t set up for the Grand Prix. If not is it possible to walk the circuit?

  7. woow…ts great circuit…i hope ferrarri can win n this race…
