Formula One 2012: Monaco GP

Six races gone and six different winners, the 2012 Formula One season is turning a real cracker. This weekend the race of races was held. If a Formula One driver could only win one race he’d pick Monaco every time. The glitz, the glamour, the history, the difficulty and the prestige. The Moncao GP has it all in abundance. Mark Webber was the lucky one yesterday. He inherited pole from Michael Schumacher (who was dropped back 5 places due to an incident at the previous race) and led for most of the race and was a deserving winner of the 2012 Monaco GP.
