Alex is on his way to the French Riviera for the Monaco Grand Prix, one of the most prestigious events in motorsport.
This race is particularly significant for Albono, as he lives just a stone's throw away from the track in the stunning Monte Carlo district.
With its tight, twisty turns, there is no challenge quite like the 78 Laps of the 3.337km Circuit de Monaco that leaves no margin for error as drivers race millimetres from the barriers.
Set on the streets of Monte Carlo, this track is notoriously known for its difficulty in overtaking, only amping up Saturday’s Qualifying stakes as drivers look to best position themselves on the grid.
The 19-corner track packs a lot of punch despite being the shortest on the calendar. It starts with Saint Devote, an awkwardly tight right-hander that requires expert braking and control.
Beau Rivage and Massenet round out the final turns of Sector 1 before it continues into the second sector to – the slowest corner in F1 – the Grand Hotel Hairpin.
Through the loud, high-speed tunnel at Turn 9 comes the Nouvelle Chicane, one of the few overtaking spots on this track.
The remaining turns along the picturesque coast ends with the La Rascasse corner and Virage Antony Noghes hairpin of Sector 3 before a short blast down the pit straight.
After an unfortunate conclusion last time out in Imola, we can’t wait to see Alex back out racing at this iconic venue this weekend!
