Oh, I do realise that, but I was thinking of the smallest possible modifications to the existing layout. If you change it too much then you might as well not race there.Mogster wrote: ↑Mon May 24, 2021 1:17 pmFrom satellite view there are other roads that could be used. Monaco is bigger than just the waterfront area where the current track is.El Scorchio wrote: ↑Mon May 24, 2021 1:05 pmThey just need to manufacture ONE point on the circuit where a car reasonably faster than the one in front of it can have a good go at an overtake. I think that would breathe a whole new heap of life into it as a race. There would still be the great challenge of following closely enough over the rest of the lap to set yourself up for it.RZS10 wrote: ↑Mon May 24, 2021 12:33 pm
There was never anything more than "maybe we could extend the circuit onto Le Portier"
From a 2015 Forbes article:
From 2018 in Forbes quoting Prince Albert II:
Route some of the track "into" the water, make it alternate randomly between being submerged by like 2 cm and just being wet - take F1 aquaplaning to a whole new level.
I'm collecting all the ideas and will shoot the FIA/Liberty and the Prince a mail with some drawings/photoshops :^)
Easier said than done at Monaco, though. There just isn't the opportunity to make a straight long enough or straight enough. Would removing the nouvelle chicane have any positive effect whatsoever? (If it's even possible)
The Portier Cove land reclamation doesn’t seem large enough to provide a decent section for overtaking unfortunately.
