Read what our two drivers and Sporting Director have shared ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix

It’s almost time for the Monaco Grand Prix weekend, one of the standout events on the Formula 1 calendar.
There’s nowhere else on earth quite like Monaco, and the team are looking forward the the unique challenge it presents.
“As we head to Monaco this week as part of the doubleheader, I’m really looking forward to driving on this iconic track again and it’s always exciting when the race is on your doorstep,” shared Alex Albon.
“Monaco has always been a track that our car has struggled with, so I’m interested to see how the FW46 performs given our change in characteristics to make it more versatile across different tracks.
“Monaco is always interesting with the weather being unpredictable, as well as overtaking being a challenge, so it should make for an interesting weekend.”

Logan Sargeant is also looking forward to threading the needle around this tight circuit.
“It’s always special to race around the streets of Monaco,” Sarge said, adding: “The track is incredibly narrow, leaving no margin for error, so it’s crucial to build up confidence during the Free Practice sessions.
“Securing track position is key with it being difficult to overtake, making Qualifying in Monaco one of the most important of the season.
“We’ll be looking to take advantage of any opportunities as a team.”
Sven Smeets, Sporting Director, concluded our race preview by saying: “After a disappointing weekend in Imola, we are looking forward to racing again in Monaco.
“It’s a unique track where any small mistake is punished immediately, but when all the pieces come together, a lap around Monaco gives you a very rewarding feeling.
“As it’s so hard to overtake on this track, it is very important to get the best out of the car in Qualifying.
“Therefore, the focus for the Free Practice sessions will be getting the right balance between Qualifying and race-pace while building driver confidence.
“The tyre compounds will be the softest in the Pirelli range, similar to the last race in Imola.
“The weather forecast predicts unstable conditions over the three days, which will make it difficult to get everything right across all sessions, but also opens opportunities to be better than our direct opponents in the midfield.
“It looks like we are heading into a challenging but exciting Monaco weekend.”
