Magic Max, awesome Alonso + outstanding Ocon - Monaco GP Review with Pedro de la Rosa + Alex Wurz
Rain or shine, Monaco put F1's best to the test. Verstappen and Alonso's spectacular last-sector shootout in qualifying and Esteban Ocon's sensational lap made it a Saturday to remember. Sunday was even more dramatic. Tom Clarkson welcomes two Monaco GP veterans - Pedro de la Rosa and Alex Wurz - to review an incredible weekend of Formula 1. They discuss the secret to Verstappen's pole position lap, why Ocon's effort was extra-special, and whether Charles Leclerc's penalty should have been avoided. Moving on to the Grand Prix, the team talk tyres, strategy, and the skill required to race in wet conditions. We hear from Max Verstappen, Fernando Alonso, Esteban Ocon, Carlos Sainz, Lando Norris and Sergio Perez, who is now 39 points behind his teammate in the World Championship. Mercedes' Head of Trackside Engineering, Andrew Shovlin, explains what the Silver Arrows hope to gain from its new upgrades. Plus, TC, 'The Barcelona Bullet' and Alex explain why the Spanish Grand Prix will be a challenge for the drivers' necks and the teams' upgrade packages.
