Fernando Alonso - Indy 500 - How it panned out
For me this is a special race, an important part of the F1 season and the glitz and glam of F1. The Monaco Grand Prix is full of charm, history and as well as being a technically challenging circuit.

Aditya Bhat - Asked if the wheelbase difference is a disadvantage, Bottas said : “No, I think in Spain we have shown strong performance in the last sector. That is all about slow speed corners and corner sequences, which is all about Monaco, so I think we have all the chances to be very strong there.”
