F1: Horner insists Monaco track must be improved

–by Mark Cipolloni–

In Friday’s Monaco GP Team Principle’s Press Conference, Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said the F1 Monaco track must be adapted for “long-term viability.”

“If anybody came up with this track now and presented it, there’s no way we’d race here. We race here because it’s Monaco, because of the history, the legacy, the backdrop, everything, the glamour.”

“Now, of course, facilities have changed dramatically. When you look at the pits now compared to where they were 10 years ago, or certainly 20 years ago, everything has improved.”

“The only thing that hasn’t changed too much, obviously, is the circuit and the cars are so big now that the prospect of an overtake is virtually impossible under normal running conditions.”

“So, not for the immediacy, but for the long-term viability of this venue… nothing stands still forever. “It’d be great to look at what is possible to introduce some genuine overtaking opportunities around the circuit or to adapt the circuit over a period of time.”
