The prestigious Monte Carlo street circuit held the fourth round of the GP2 Championship this weekend. The track, known for its constriction and lack of overtaking opportunities, still gave the Arden team some credit to its performance.
"Heading into Monaco I honestly didn't know what to expect, we had two difficult weekends since my podium in Malaysia so the plan was to turn it around and get back to the points end of the field. In Practice we instantly had pace, everything was coming to me and we were strong straight out of the box. We were 3rd in practice and managed to continue our pace into Qualifying by topping my group but 0.02 off pole. It was a great result for the team, having a 1-2 with Johnny on pole."

“We worked very well in preparation for Monaco and after a lot work I think we had a very good setup on the car. In free practice I touched the wall in the third lap and bent the suspension slightly which changed the balance of the car a bit, making it a little harder to drive but I could feel that the car was very good. We made only a very slight change for Qualifying. We had prepared a decent plan for the laps in Qualifying and we held to that perfectly without any problems of traffic, which gave us a perfect session. We had two very good laps, both of which would have given us pole of the session but only the best one gave us the pole of both sessions!"
