The Monte-Carlo circuit is the most instantly recognisable setting for a Grand Prix.

Today’s practice sessions gave us a chance to see the cars in their high-downforce configurations, with several of them running new parts and displaying new logos.

Among the new graphics on the cars are Deustche Post logos on the Mercedes, Trina Solar on the Renaults, Telecoms Sans Frontiers on the Williamses and Swiss automotive group Emil Frey on the Saubers.

On the technical side, Ferrari and Sauber aren’t running their F-ducts this weekend – you can see Ferrari are running their flat-sided shark fin wing.

Williams also tested some new front and rear wings. If you spot any other changes to the cars in the pictures below please describe them in the comments.

More pictures of these cars and others will be added to the selection below later – check back soon.
