Postcard from Monaco/2

This was the view as we walked from the GP2 garage (and media car park) to the F1 paddock each morning.  The Med really is this shade of blue…most days…azure sea

Believe it or not, there was a bulldog sitting with the couple on this scooter in front.  He – the bulldog, that is – was cool and calm, wedged in by the rider’s feet  dog on bike

If the F1 pit lane was tight at Monaco, take a look at how the GP2 teams were obliged to operate. Not only did they have to run the cars from equipment temporarily placed on the road but there were also 13 teams…Congested pit lane

 

Good to see Jean Ragnotti – that very fast French ex-F3 and rally driver – again in the pit lane.  We won’t mention his other claim to fame (shunting the Safety Car during the 1995 Monaco GP)…

You may wonder what this is all about but I was taken by the attention to detail in the Monaco paddock: I like the serious fire hose there and the “port-a-loo” toilets that fit perfectly within the arch.  Paddock detail

 

Olivier Panis and family looked a bit tense as they watched young Aurelien Panis qualify mid-field for the Renault 3.5 raceOlivier sad

 

The happy scene after Richie Stanaway’s victory for Status Grand Prix in the GP2 sprint race.  That’s Dave Stubbs – former Williams team manager – on the right

    Hi Peter
    Seem to remember the old pit lane being a lot tighter than the new one.
    Cheers
