Major change planned for next Grand Prix

IMG_7485Monaco is planning build a new pit lane and paddock in time for the Grand Prix in 2018, according to an article in Germany’s Bild newspaper.

The cost of the project, which would relieve chronic overcrowding at the vent, would be in the region of €30 million.

“Monaco wanted to prepare the new pit lane for 2017, but engineers were unable to guarantee they would finish it in time. So the project was postponed to 2018,” reported Bild.

The report has been confirmed by Richard Micoud of the Automobile Club de Monaco: “Yes, it’s true. The new pit building will be two storeys. Teams will finally have more space and will not be tripping over their feet,” he said.
