This is going to be one tough weekend - maybe the toughest of the year. Monaco is hard, hard, hard - hard on the drivers, hard on the cars and hard to win.
It starts with qualifying. Everyone knows that a good grid position is vital at Monaco, but it's not the sort of place you can go and really hang it out to get a good lap time. You can take the car to the limit - and you have to, of course - but no further.
You can't get away with what a lot of guys do at 'normal' tracks - risk a moment in the gravel, or hang a couple of wheels over the edge of the track. If you play that game at Monaco, you're straight into the barriers and it's all over.
I raced here last year and I'm hoping the experience of driving a GP2 car at Monaco will be super-useful this year. I've won on street circuits before in F3 - I was the youngest ever winner at Macau and I've won at Pau, too - but street circuits in a GP2 car are more complicated.
