McLaren boss Zak Brown calls for Monaco GP changes with iconic F1 track under threat


“I think Monaco needs to come up to the same commercial terms as other Grands Prix and also maybe needs to work with ways they can adapt their track because as our cars have become bigger, the racing has become more difficult. You do need to take into consideration history but then I think you need to take into consideration how the show that it puts on.

“There is also an element, which shouldn’t drive our decisions but should be part of our decisions, of what’s the economic contribution to the sport. I’d much rather have Monaco than not, but just like the sport is bigger than any one driver or team, I think it’s bigger than any one Grand Prix.”

Brown will be hoping his team are higher up in the rankings ahead of the race in May, with the side currently sitting in eighth place on just six points. Lando Norris’ seventh-placed finish in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix saw the British outfit pick up their first points of the season, whilst Daniel Ricciardo is second-bottom of the rankings after a poor start to the season.
