The glitz and glamour event of the Formula One season the Monaco Grand Prix is back!.

Monaco Grand Prix takes place over 78 laps of the 3.337-kilometre Circuit de Monaco in Monte Carlo on Sunday, May 29.

Looking to come back strong this weekend is the Mclaren pairing of Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo.

After a tough Spanish Grand Prix that saw only Lando finish in the points, McLaren will be hoping the tight cornered circuit will favour them taking away the speed advantage of the Mercedes and Red Bull.

Let’s find out what the drivers have to say on the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix.

What Lando Has To Say

“I always look forward to the Monaco weekend.

It will be nice to be racing so close to home, particularly as I can wake up in my own bed! Last year it was a fantastic race for me and whilst we’re not back at that level just yet, I’m hoping we can pick up some good points here.

Qualifying on Saturday is going to be key but it will be interesting to see how the race plays out on Sunday with these new cars.

“I’m taking these few days to rest up and to focus on getting better before diving into Monaco.

Spain was incredibly tough, but I was very pleased to get some points for the team. Let’s keep moving forward and ensure we’re ready for the busy weekend ahead!”

What Daniel Has To Say

“I’m bouncing back from a difficult race and looking forward to getting stuck into the Monaco weekend.

I have a lot of history with this race so I’m hoping to make a mark in the MCL36 this year and score some points for the team.

The atmosphere around Monaco is always exciting so it will be great to soak it all up.

I’m also really looking forward to the short commute to track from my home!

“Off the back of Spain, I’ve got my head in the data with the engineers to make sure we’re in the best position possible to fight for a top 10 finish.

We learnt a lot about the car, particularly with the good upgrades, and I have great trust in the team for us to keep improving. Hopefully we can put together a solid weekend and fight for a top 10 finish.

Let’s keep pushing!”
