Is The Monaco Grand Prix ‘Too Unsafe’ for Formula 1?

28 May 2006

With the introduction of new rules and regulations in the Formula 1 Championship it goes without saying that there will be conflicts of interest

or disgruntled moans from teams or drivers as they conform to yet more stricter rulebook. This time we look again towards Monaco, the Grand Prix that sticks out from the crowd as being one of the most iconic in racing history. Rubens Barrichelllo has re-iterated his statement fortifying bahis belief that the use of DRS on the Monaco circuit would be highly unwise.

I just think it is wrong. I would love the people at the top to sit in the car and try to do the tunnel with the DRS open.

To introduce the technology and not use it would defeat its purpose, but is Monaco exciting enough without the overtaking? This then brings us onto our next point; if Monaco would become unsafe with DRS then shouldn’t the track be considered unsafe regardless? It’s only the teams experienced engineering and exceptional skill that we haven’t seen a hugely serious accident at Monaco for years. If a driver has an accident at Monaco and they have to have a scape-goat such as DRS to blame it on then why introduce it in the first place?
