The Armco barrier-lined circuit leaves no margin for error, demanding more concentration that many other tracks. Cars run with maximum downforce and brakes are worked hard. Overtaking is next to impossible so qualifying in Monaco beomes more critical.
The Portier corner is key to achieving a good lap time around Monaco. It is preceded by the Loews hairpin, one of the slowest corners in motorsport, and followed by the tunnel, one of the few flat-out sections of the track.
To win in Monaco places a driver's name on a list that includes many of history's all-time greats.
