Carlin team driver Jolyon Palmer heads to Monaco to repeat his last year's success
Southwater racer Jolyon Palmer heads to the iconic streets of Monaco this weekend (23-25 May) intending to repeat his performance from last year’s staging of the F1 feeder series.
The 22-year-old, who drives for the Carlin team, claimed his first GP2 victory on the legendary Monaco street circuit last year. Jolyon made a superb start in the sprint race from third on the grid and went on to dominate the race, claiming a dream victory ahead of Max Chilton and Giedo van der Garde, both of whom have now graduated to F1.
Speaking before the weekend Jolyon commented: “Monaco is a really special place to drive and my favourite weekend on the calendar. Having good pace in qualifying will be crucial as overtaking is difficult, but I’m confident in my own pace round there so it is shaping up to be a good weekend. Hopefully I can repeat my 2012 performance and take another victory!”
