Grand Prix 2013

Monaco is with out a doubt the most glitz and glam formula 1 race of the calendar. Racing through the streets of Monaco holds many and varied challenges – racing within the tight confines of the Principality, drivers are very light on areas they can afford to make a mistake, and there’s absolutely nowhere you can make a big error and get away with it. As well as a confined, barrier-lined circuit, the drivers have to contend with a track surface that is far from ideal, which is mainly being used as public roads throughout the year.

This year we will be tipping Mark Webber to come in top throughout the streets of Monaco. Qualifying is going to be the most important part of the weekend with whoever finishes on pole position is likely to finish on the podium.
