[blockqoute] Turn 8 at Albert Park is very similar to the tunnel – a long, high-speed bend – and drivers were getting through it jsut fine with the DRS deployed.[/blockqoute]
How can you compare Albert Park with Monaco? Albert Park is much wider, safer, and there’s no tunnel.
No sorry, the tunnel section at Monaco is blind. As soon when the driver exits the tunnel, a flash of light appears and you cannot see a thing.
With more closing speed than ever before, can you imagine someone doing a Webber on Kovelainen-esque move at Monaco? That would be destructive.
The Pitstraigth is the safest, most realistic option. Another choice would be the Beau Rivage straight from Saint Devote -> Massenet.
