The 2 at the top are no surprise. Monaco doesn't have the high speed turns which takes away some of Red Bulls aero advantage. Nico is really showing his worth.

yes. its only practice and times mean little. however i think that this may be the bulls bogey track. there are few long sweeps which seem to give the bulls their advantage, although the tunnel may be of help, especially as drs is banned there. anyway, heres to an interesting quali and race!

You may be correct. And I don't want to hear anything from the peanut gallery saying oh the KERS didn't work for Vettel and he was crippled. If they can't get the unit working then don't use it as an excuse. They knew at the start of the year that the unit was important.

Red Bull technical chief Adrian Newey has admitted that the team underestimated the resources that would be required to fully get on top of KERS.

The energy boosting device has proved troublesome for Red Bull all year, with drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber often instructed not to use it.
