Monaco is the highlight of the season and a massively challenging weekend. It’s an awesome track with an awesome vibe with the port and the city. It’s a very special Grand Prix and I look forward to it.”
Carlos: “I’m very excited. Monaco is the special one of the year and running in the first laps of FP1 always feels special. And when it comes to qualifying, it’s probably one of the best qualifying sessions of the year. You need to be very committed and very determined!”
