Alpha Tauri driver Pierre Gasly spoke out against the disappearance of the Monaco Grand Prix from the Formula 1 calendar.
“If Monaco disappears from the calendar, it will be a shock. Perhaps this is the most iconic race in the world. Even those who are not into Formula 1 have heard about the Monaco Grand Prix in one way or another, whether it’s about racing, or about some stage-related parties, or something else related to racing. events.
Every rider should experience it for themselves, because the track in Monaco is perhaps one of the most difficult. This is my favorite track. I have a special relationship with stages that are considered cult. Yes, I have a home “Grand Prix of France”, but I also consider the race in Monaco a kind of home. There is also the Belgian Grand Prix in Spa, which is very close to my hometown, they always support me there too. The stages at Spa and Monaco are legendary, two of my favorite tracks. This is the history of Formula 1, they should always be on the calendar, ”Autosport quoted Gasly as saying.
The Formula 1 contract to host the Monaco Grand Prix is valid until the end of 2022. This year the stage will be held from 27 to 29 May.
