After the Monaco Grand Prix was canceled last season due to the pandemic, Prema returns to the principality for the second round of the Formula 2 season.
Monaco is always challenging, with a tight track, and the proximity of the barriers brings a glamorous atmosphere.
After the potential shown in the opening round, the team will line up, featuring a win for rookie Oscar Piastri.
Robert Shwartzman also showed impressive pace, and the Russian is hoping to put everything together to fight as a frontrunner. Both the Ferrari Driver Academy racer and his Alpine Academy teammate have raced at the venue before, but it will be the first time in F2 machinery.
Rene Rosin, Prema Team Principal, said: “It’s been almost two months since the first round of the season, and we worked hard to prepare for Monte Carlo, although it is such a unique and challenging track that it’s always difficult to be fully prepared for what can happen there.
“We think we showed good potential in Bahrain and that we have what we need to execute a good weekend. It would be great to fight at the front with both drivers, and we are focused in making that happen.”
The weekend has a slightly different schedule compared to usual. Prema will head to the track on Thursday, with the practice session and qualifying taking place a day earlier than normal for a race week.
