The Monaco Grand Prix is this weekend, and Formula One racing will be back on the streets of Monte Carlo. Though the defending champion Max Verstappen is heavy favourite, the surprising form of McLaren with Lando Norris suggests that this race may be closer than expected. Local driver Charles Leclerc is determined to race his Ferrari to the front of the pack as both Ferrari and McLaren are thought to be strong challengers. The legendary Monaco street track is well-known for its challenging overtaking conditions, thus a solid qualifying result is important. Whether Norris can keep putting pressure on Verstappen as the season progresses across Europe is going to be decided in Saturday's session.

F1 Monaco Grand Prix 2023: About the Track

The Monaco Grand Prix, often dubbed the "Crown Jewel" of the Formula One season, is renowned for its rich history, glamour, iconic backdrop, and tight bends. However, its status is now being questioned as Formula One's popularity surges. Critics argue that the layout, which discourages overtaking, might diminish Monaco's allure.

Some suggest modifying the circuit to allow more passing opportunities. Monaco is one of the few F1 tracks with only a single DRS zone. Introduced in 2011 to facilitate overtaking, the limited DRS zone in Monaco significantly restricts passing opportunities, prompting calls for change.
