About the Monaco GP

Monaco has lost none of its shine, and is still the glamour event on the GP calendar. Run amongst the city streets of the Principality, the rich and famous come along to see the race, whether sitting on a balcony with a glass of champagne or on a boat bobbing in the famous harbour. The circuit itself is a nightmare, and the teams never look forward to the ‘lock-up’ pit facilities, which were even labelled ‘third world’ by McLaren’s Ron Dennis last year. However, the place is still special, and drivers still say it is memorable to win there. Last year David Coulthard took victory, after Michael Schumacher fell out of contention with a bizarre exhaust problem.

Set up

Maximum downforce is call needed for this bumpy, undulating and generally slow circuit. Mechanical grip is vital, so suspension settings are soft, with increased ride-height to avoid bottoming out.
