Webber: In three words Monaco is ‘dramatic, glitz and busy’

Mark Webber celebrates 2012 Monaco GP victory

Two times Monaco Grand Prix winner Mark Webber is very confident and pleased with his best victory memories from tricky street circuit 2010 and 2012. F1 veteran Mark Webber two times safely took Monaco GP top podium from Pole.

Last year seven time world champion Michael Schumacher took Pole position since his return to Formula 1 racing, but he started from sixth on the grid following five-place grid penalty. Schumacher’s grid penalty advantaged Mark Webber top start from second.

“[In three words, Monaco is] dramatic, glitz and busy. [If I were a fan] I’d watch [from] the left-right combination at the entry to the swimming pool, after Tabac. [My best memory of Monaco is] my first win in 2010 – it’s right up there with my best memories of all time.” Webber said.

Defending world champion Sebastian Vettel is claims that overtaking is possible in Monaco but swifts need to take risk and also he cautions that smallest mistake will make biggest lost in tricky street circuit.

“Monaco is one of my favourite tracks and driving it is an absolute challenge. You can’t even make the smallest mistake; if you do, you’re lucky if it’s just that your lap time is bad. If you’re not paying attention, you’ll end up in the barrier. Overtaking is possible, but only with risk – the best place for that is before the chicane.” Vettel said.

“We come out of the narrow tunnel at more than 300km/h and race to the first gear-chicane – whoever brakes later wins. Ideally you have a good qualifying session and start from far forward.” The German added.
