The Monaco Grand Prix is the one race of the year that every driver dreams of winning. Like the Indy 500 or Le Mans. it stands alone. almost distinct from the sport from which it was born.
A combination of precision driving. technical excellence and sheer bravery is required to win in Monte Carlo. facets which highlight the differences between the great and the good in Formula One.
To win in Monaco places a drivers name on a list that includes many of histor’s all-time greats. The Armco barrier-tined circuit leaves no margin for error, demanding more concentration that any other Formula One track. Cars run with maximum downforce and brakes are worked hard.
Overtaking is next to impossible so qualifying in Monaco is more critical than at any other Grand Prix. Some great names have ended their races in the barriers here, most notably Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher.
Be sure to tune and catch all the action as the 2012 Formula One Championship heats up on the
