Back on track after canceled race a Imola. 3,337 m long, the street circuit of Monk has in the Piscine (two “S” left-right and right-left) one of the most interesting traits. But from Santa Devota to Rascasse there are many legendary corners on a track where more than anywhere else qualifying can be decisive. Braking for turn 10, the best point to try to overtake. Also through “historical shots”, the characteristics and pitfalls of the Principality: Sunday LIVE on Sky and streaming on NOW
- Turn 1 – Sainte Devote (Sainte Devote) – Brake shortly after the 100m sign, drive in 3rd gear at about 130 km/h, braking is very difficult as the braking area is very bumpy; easy to miss the exact braking point, 4.3 G of deceleration.
- Turn 2 – Beau Rivage – This variant – after the salitone that bears the same name – takes about 270 hours. Change of direction at a speed of about 150 km/h.
- Turn 4 – Casino – You don’t see the apex point. Slope change when turning in, travel in 4th gear at approximately 160 km/h.
- Turn 5 – Mirabeau “high” – One of the most demanding stretches, where heavy braking alternates with considerable acceleration. It is a tight curve which requires a reduction in speed from 220 to around 80 km/h.
- Turn 6 – Loews – One of the tightest corners in the entire World Championship. Speeds are very low, the main pitfall is finding yourself in front of a slower single-seater up to the tunnel.
- Turn 7 – Mirabeau “low” – Certainly not high speed in this first right-hand bend which, however, must be approached carefully, in a “complementary” way to the next one to avoid entering the tunnel too slowly. In summary you need precision in the trajectory.
- Turn 8 – Portier – Precision in the trajectory is the imperative also in this corner. Which isn’t particularly demanding, but hides a pitfall: the change of light at the entrance to the tunnel.
- Turn 10-11 – New Chicane – From the more than 290 times that can be reached under the tunnel, we arrive at the 70 of the new chicane.
- Turn 12 – Tobacconist – 90° left turn, it’s a sort of “trampoline” for jumping towards the swimming pools.
- Curves 15-16 – Pools – The variant is a fast right-left. Great braking coming out of the tunnel, the braking area is very bumpy and you brake downhill, brake at 110 meters by exerting 160 kg on the brake pedal, 4.7 G of deceleration, you ride in 3rd gear.
- Turn 17 – Rascasse – Like the Loewe, this right-hander is among the slowest in the championship.
- Turns 18 and 19 – Anthony Noghes – The last two corners of the circuit, which lead into the straight, are named after Anthony Noghes, the tobacco merchant who organized the historic first editions of the Monte Carlo Rally and the Monaco GP. Turn 18 is taken in 2nd gear at 85 km/h, while turn 19 is always taken in 2nd gear at about 115 km/h.
