An uncertain week of weather should clear in time for Sunday’s Monaco grand prix.
Forecasts on Monday predict that rain showers could fall for Saturday qualifying in the Principality, following a sunny first day of practice on Thursday and possible rain on market-day Friday, when the roads are reopened to the public.
“The whole town turns a bit nuts for the whole week of the GP,” said resident and Williams driver Alex Wurz, “but usually it’s so quiet in Monaco.”
The Austrian went on: “It’s a strange week, so many people come down. Rich, poor, stunning, nice, arrogant … and some normal ones!”
