I like Monaco how it is- as a place and a circuit. It seems to be one of the great special places and I would hate to see it reclaim land Dhubai style and ruin it!
As for the circuit the cars out grew this thing probably 20-30 years ago- in its own right it shouldnt be a Grands Prix………… but its Monaco and its what we love about it!! I agree in last years race was pretty exciting at the end, but a few alterations for some overtaking spots rather than a “new circuit” a better option.
I hate when old circuits get redesigned – and not for the better- Hockienhiem a great example! For those too young to see the old track through the forrest do a youtube and have a squizz- its brialliant!!
Martin Brundell likes the new layout (well not so new anymore really) saying the fast straights were very dangerous while you held on expecting the car to blow up- he was in the Tyrell at the time so probably spot on LOL
I can see the practicle reasons for this change as Hockenhiem was around 7km if I remember, not so great for spectators and saftey really, but dont change Monaco on us!!!
Next thing we know Abu Dhabi will be the ‘classic circuit in formula one racing’………………….. thats when I tune out. I see why F1 races there, but why THERE? Cant they build a proper race track in the desert that is good , Circuit of the America’s maybe a good starting point for their reference??
