Welcome back to race day at the 2005 Monaco Grand Prix.

Sunday’s forecast is favourable. An ambient temperature high of 22 degrees Celsius is predicted, with low chances of rain, which means that conditions this afternoon are likely to be consistent with those in practice and qualifying.

The famed 3.340 km Monaco street track is largely unchanged since 2004, when Jarno Trulli took pole position for Renault in 1m 13.985s before going on to win his first Grand Prix the following day. Michael Schumacher holds the lap record at 1m 14.439s.

The race will run over 78 laps (260.520 km) and will start at 14.00 hrs local time, which is two hours ahead of GMT.
