2018 Monaco Grand PrixView

Juxtaposed with the glitz and glamour of Monaco is the gritty and grizzled layout of Circuit de Monaco, which has remained relatively unchanged since 1929 when Anthony Noghes, son of a wealthy cigarette baron, proposed a grand prix through the streets of Monte Carlo. That inaugural race on April 14 was won by William Grover-Williams in a Bugatti and it came on the same basic layout that challenge today’s Formula One drivers.

Key: Toro Rosso missed podium chance

Toro Rosso technical director James Key reckons the STR11 had the pace to finish on the podium in Monaco and rued traffic in the pit lane which cost Carlos Sainz Jr. valuable time. Sainz Jr. was running in sixth place behind the Safety Car in wet conditions but lost time during the switch to Intermediate tyres and then the change to dry tyres a handful of laps later. Sainz Jr. eventually came home in eighth position but Key feels that it should have been possible […]
