It’s that time of the year where the conversation turns to Monaco’s place on the racing calendar. FIA Formula 2 driver, Liam Lawson, has eloquently stated, that for him, it’s an, ‘extremely unique circuit.’

The Red Bull junior expressed what the circuit is like from a pure racing viewpoint:

“We all know the risks of these sections, and of a track like this. But at the same time that’s what makes it so exciting. You get such a rush. More of a rush around here, at least I do, than any other place.”

Monaco is notorious for the lack of overtaking opportunities. But this is a different kind of race circuit, which enables drivers to use their mental and reactionary skills to greater affect.

Carlin driver, Lawson, said:

“I think that’s one of the reasons why it’s exciting, because you are so close a lot of the times, rubbing and touching the walls.”

Towards the end of the Group B Qualifying sessions, Jake Hughes, looked to clip the wall at the beginning of the Swimming Pool section, and thereafter was a passenger in the VAR, as he launched off the following kerbs and shunted into the barrier.

“That section, I think it’s a very unique one, and it’s one of the best, most exciting driver sections on the track. But I think it’s also one of the most high risk.

“With Jake, it was extremely unlucky. I think the wing went under the car when he hit the wall, and that sent him straight, and it had sort of a pinball affect.”

Hughes took a few moments to climb out of the car, and thankfully he did so under his own steam.

“Obviously I hope that he’s ok, because it looked like quite a big shunt. But from my side, I wouldn’t change any of the track. Monaco’s, Monaco.“ 

Does motor racing always have to be about overtakes and DRS zones? Surely there’s room for a circuit on the calendar that is challenging for the cars, and drivers. And, as spectators, we get to enjoy a driver’s raw skills and talent.
