Monaco GP my favourite: Nico Hulkenberg
Monaco, May 18 (IANS)
Formula 1 driver Nico Hulkenberg said on Monday that the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix is his favourite.
"Monaco is my favourite race weekend of the year, both from a driving point of view and because of everything that goes on during the week. Everything about Monaco is exciting; the place itself feels special, but when Formula 1 turns up it's the start of something amazing," said the Force India driver.
The F1 caravan moves to the city state for the sixth GP of the season this Sunday.
"From a driver's point of view, Monaco is one of the last tracks in the world where you have absolutely zero margin for error - one mistake and you are in the wall," said the German.
"The thrill and kick you get in the car as you drive around the circuit is much bigger than what you get from any other track: your heart rate goes up; your heart is in your mouth - I really like that. The whole lap is a challenge. To master the track and put together three good sectors on a qualifying run is very hard, but when you get it done it is such a great feeling. You are relieved, proud and happy - it's priceless."
