Monaco worries
« on: May 17, 2006, 03:45:39 PM »

Formula One's rookie drivers have been warned to watch out in qualifying for next week's Monaco Grand Prix amid fears the new knockout format could pose more of a risk than ever. Webber is in particular wary of the first knockout session where there will be 22 cars on the track.

"We have literally told a few rookies that if they do back off at all, you really have to look in your mirror after every corner because a car can be on top of you that quickly," said Webber

"As long as people are sensible enough not to have huge speed differences, that's the bit that worries us," he added. "You don't want that.

"We just mentioned the other day with the group of drivers that of all places, Monaco's very important in terms of you actually have nowhere to go if you back off in certain areas and you don't want to be learning about that in qualifying.

"The experienced guys know the score but every so often you get caught out," said Webber.

"Monaco is just so bad, telemetry is bad, you can't see where the cars are really on the track, radio's bad ... but it'll be fine. It makes it interesting."

Apart from Rosberg, who raced in Monaco in GP2, Toro Rosso's American Scott Speed and Super Aguri's French stand-in Franck Montagny will be making their Monaco Grand Prix debuts.

"No Matter how little money and how few possessions, you own, having a dog makes you rich."
