PIC OF THE WEEK: JENSON AT MONACO
Rejoice - F1 returns to its spiritual heartland
And yet...after a series of races on sparkly new but all too clinical racetracks in far flung corners of the globe, the return of the F1 circus to the little principality on the Med feels like F1 coming home (of course it is home to a large portion of the F1 field).
The unique challenge of negotiating those tricky city streets is also what makes victory in the Monaco GP one of the most coveted prizes in world motorsport, right up there with Le Mans or the Indy 500.
So to celebrate F1 coming back to Monte Carlo, here's Jenson Button negotiating the distinctive Loew's Hairpin - pretty much the slowest corner in F1. Here's hoping he and Lewis can start to reel in that pesky German Vettel this weekend...
This still evokes the atmosphere and spirit of the Monaco GP (we hope) but this time does so with a greater degree of focus.
Now don't say we never do anything for you...
