Go! Go! Go! in Monaco!

May 24, 2009

The glitz and glamour of Formula One comes together in one weekend, with this afternoon’s Monaco Grand Prix . Jenson Button put his Brawn on pole in qualifying yesterday, but following late-braking into Mirabeau and and a clip of the barrier, last year’s race winner Lewis Hamilton starts the race from the back of the grid.

As with any race, anything can happen, but Monaco is renowned for being a hard circuit to pass on, making Jenson’s pole all the more worthwhile. For Hamilton, his work is cut out to make up for the error in qualifying.

Watch out for Kimi Raikkonen into the first corner. The Finn, who put his Ferrari alongside Button in qualifying comes to the grid equipped with KERS, meaning as the lights go green, Jenson will have his mirrors full of red Ferrari. And perhaps Lewis will be seeing a different kind of red.
