Here are some thoughts from the boys at Ferrari on Monaco…

Kimi and James Allison talk about Monaco

From its inception, way back in 1929 (it has featured on the F1 calendar since 1950) for fans of this discipline, the Monaco Grand Prix has always been the most glamorous event of the World Championship. This year, it’s the sixth round of the season. The track is truly unique and that results in a “different” kind of weekend to usual, as Kimi Raikkonen and Scuderia Ferrari’s Technical Director James Allison explain.
“The circuit in Monaco is different from all the others, it is a good challenge, but during the race, it depends: if you start at the front it is nice, but if you are down at the back it is very difficult to overtake” says Kimi, who on the other hand is quite unimpressed by the glamour of the night life: “Like during all the races, we have a lot of meetings and after that we go to sleep, although all the people obviously enjoy it”. Yet, Monaco gives drivers a unique opportunity to feel the closeness of the public on the grandstands: “When the race is finished, we go slowly back and obviously we can see people and flags, but there are so many people that it is hard to notice”.
