Monaco Grand Prix Preview
The jewel in the crown, Monaco. The Monaco Grand Prix sits outside the standard setups of the modern Formula One cars, special adjustments and reconfigured steering apply to make a completely unique setup for Monaco. Whilst only singapore truly resembles the tight and twisting nature of the Monaco street circuit it’s a Grand Prix every team wants to win. Traditionally the majority of the time, the winner of Monaco is the winner of the Drivers Championship.
Given the short and tight nature of the circuit, top speed isn’t required, instead, maximum downforce is required for the driver to succeed in Monaco. With the Mercedes engine quick off the line they should be able to continue their dominant streak, but with Red Bull’s Adrian Newey a Monaco maestro they should face stiff opposition.
Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen and Jenson Button all having won in Monaco it’s a tough call to rule anyone out.
