2013 Monaco Grand Prix

Rush director Ron Howard was a guest of Ferrari at the Monaco Grand Prix. Here’s a look at the weekend through the eyes of the teams and drivers.


Nico Rosberg came out the box firing on all cylinders and posted the fastest times in both practice sessions.


Monaco’s traditional Friday ‘day off’ saw the drivers and teams enjoying the atmosphere and fulfilling their many media obligations.

SATURDAY – It was Mercedes all the way in qualifying, despite rain adding a touch of spice to Q1 and Q2. Felipe Massa started last after a crash in FP3 left him stranded in the pits, while Giedo Van Der Garde bagged his highest grid slot for Caterham and Jenson Button broke down in Q3.


It may have been straightforward for Rosberg, but behind him carnage reigned. The Monaco Grand Prix was red-flagged after Pastor Maldonado’s heavy crash at Tabac.

He wasn’t the only one in trouble: Felipe Massa repeated his practice crash and Grosjean raised his weekend shunt total to four.

    Oh boy, that Gary Hartstein tweet sure is hilarious.

  2. Wonder what James Moy’s tweet was referring to?

  3. Good to see that someone at Lotus could see the funny side of Grosjean’s fourth accident of the weekend!

    1. @tdog: Exactly, they’re always very funny. I just don’t read the other tweets, I only read the Lotus ones.

  4. Couldn’t agree more with Alan Permane. Monaco may not be the best track on the calendar and it may not produce the best racing, but it feels special somehow. A lot of good tracks have graced the F1 calendar recently, but few have that certain something that make them truly special. Monaco has it, so do Spa, Silverstone, Suzuka, Monza and Montreal. Places like Sepang and Istanbul Park, while they are great layouts, don’t feel special at all.

  5. Best tweet goes to Gary Hartstien. Hilarious!

  6. Lol on Hartstein’s comment. Cecotto will be the winner.

  7. @RumblyLizard (Sam White above) clearly had the best view of the lot of us, his pics during the weekend were quite insightful.

    1. They sure were!
