MONTE-CARLO, MONACO - MAY 25: Max Verstappen of the Netherlands and Oracle Red Bull Racing talks

Monaco is one of Formula 1’s great challenges. The traffic is monstrous – and that’s just when you’ve got 20 cars fighting for position around the tight, twisty and barrier-lined street track.

Drivers need to beware of slower cars when on a hot lap – no easy feat when there are several blind corners and only a narrow path to thread your way past. Misjudge and it’s lap over. There’s a bottleneck in the final segment during qualifying, too, as drivers back up to give themselves some clear air to push for a flying lap.
