Monaco Grand Prix Preview – Red Bull Racing
It’s one of the most famous Grand Prix Circuits and this year, we’re starting things early and getting ready for the Monaco Grand Prix week with this Monaco Grand Prix Preview thanks to the Red Bull Racing team!
Loved by most (if not all) the drivers, the Monaco Grand Prix is a standout circuit with a wonderful history. It’s one of the most challenging circuits as drivers are forced to push themselves (and their cars) to the limits and we all know that qualifying is key!
Let’s take a look at the Monaco Grand Prix Preview with the Red Bull Racing boys!
Max Verstappen – Monaco Grand Prix Preview – Red Bull Racing
“I have been living in Monaco for just over a year now and I really enjoy every minute of it – I have a good crew of friends which means that we always have plenty of fun.”
“It’s nice being able to train in the mediterranean sun and experience the nightlight on the off season.”
“There is no such thing as a low risk lap in Monaco, it doesn’t affect my confidence heading back there and it just makes me want to do better this year and to learn from my mistakes.”
“We have a lot to learn from the car in terms of setup as it’s always developing and we haven’t driven it on a tight street-circuit – yet.”
“Preparation for Monaco is a little bit different, you definitely build up a little bit slower throughout the weekend and you pace yourself.”
“It’s important to find the limit carefully – with the new cars, I think the chicane around the swimming pool will be the most challenging corner this year.”

“In theory, I could walk to work while we are in Monaco! It’s still a little bit of a way but it can be done!”
“Luckily for me though, we get boats to the Energy Station which is quite a nice change and being able to sleep in your own bed and complain about the noise is also a treat.”
“Monaco is definitely my favourite track to drive – it’s so tight and intimidation and from the outside, some of the sequences look impossible to go through at the speeds that we do.”
“Once you’re in the car, it’s an amazing feeling. If you kiss the wall, it actually makes you want to do it again as opposed to just scaring you.”
“The whole spectacle of the weekend just makes it something unique and special.”
“Last year was disappointing for me as I felt we definitely had the win on the cards – I am old enough and mature enough now to put that behind me and be able to look forward to racing there.”
“Hopefully I can take back what I lost last year – I don’t think I could have gone any quicker on my pole lap.”
“Personally, I felt like it went really well and one of the best laps I have ever done – if I do win a trophy it’s staying with me – NO REPLICAS!”
