Monaco GP - The challenges of Monaco


“There’s a unique atmosphere at Monaco, which feels really special as the historic circuit which threads its way through the narrow streets comes to life.” That’s the view of Scuderia Ferrari’s third driver, Esteban Gutierrez. He spoke to about the aspects of this round of the Formula 1 World Championship which he finds most appealing. “It’s definitely a very technical circuit, where precision driving and a reliable braking system are vital elements. However, there are some high speed sections, like the exit to the tunnel. As it’s a street circuit, the road surface is quite bumpy and that is one of the tricky elements to tackle when it comes to managing the many demanding braking points. The race is not just difficult for the drivers, because the mechanics and engineers have to deal with working in a confined space, where it’s not always easy to perform at one’s best, especially during the pit stops.”
