Safety Revisions at Monaco

Monaco have announced they will be making revisions to the barriers that Sergio Perez hit, and that Nico Rosberg so narrowly avoided last weekend. The Tecpro barriers did their job, but with a bit more run off, and therefore longer for speed to dissipate, they would be even more effective. The crane at that site will be removed and the camera position moved back. (Probably wise as the cameraman was probably straight off to the laundry with his undercrackers).

Thankfully Sergio is fit and well by all accounts, but will have to undergo further medical tests in Montreal before being cleared to take part in the weekends activities.

Monaco will never be a ‘safe’ racetrack in the way that the Tilke tracks are safe, and nor should it be, and I am sure the drivers would agree, it’s part of the challenge, however no-one wants to see ambulances on track at any race weekend, let’s hope they get the revisions right.

Long live the Monaco GP, I will make it there one year, even if I have to marry one of the Rainiers!
