Principality principle




What is it about Monaco? Firstly, the Grand Prix is allowed to survive on a circuit which laughs in the face of modern safety criteria. (Using the ‘San Marino principle’, I always wonder why the Monaco GP couldn’t be staged at Paul Ricard?)

Secondly, the round of the World Rally Championship which is based in the Principality is marred by the actions of a minority whose idea of a good laugh is to try and cause accidents in a sport that already carries enough inherent risks.

Tradition notwithstanding, are there any reasons other than financial for the two events to continue in their present format?

Just a thought
