Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco 2015 – The Race

Circuit de Monaco
Sunday 24 May 2015

MERHI Chassis 03 P16 1:21.715
STEVENS Chassis 02 P17 1:22.693

Roberto Merhi ended his debut Monaco Grand Prix in 16th position today, achieving the best result of his rookie season so far. His team-mate Will Stevens made it another two-car finish for the Manor Marussia F1 Team, bringing his car home in 17th position having experienced a more frustrating Monaco debut after sustaining front wing damage early in the race.

“I’m really happy with my result today. The pace was good and it was a great feeling to be racing in my first Monaco Grand Prix. I’m pleased for the team to get another two-car finish and we have plenty of data again to understand how we can keep improving the car for the next few races. The past few races have been tough but it feels like everything is coming together now. Canada will be a new and different experience again but it feels like we are making good progress now.”

“It’s nice to take the chequered flag at my first Monaco Grand Prix and it’s another good result for the team, getting both cars to the finish once again. It wasn’t a straightforward race though; quite tough in fact. I picked up some front wing damage on my first lap and the combination of struggling for downforce whilst being on the prime tyre really hurt our race, and of course put me behind Roberto. So quite a bit of frustration along the way but we continue to be encouraged by our reliability and some improvement in pace here this weekend.”

John Booth, Team Principal
“Roberto drove a strong race today and was clearly relishing his debut at this historic circuit. He had good pace and has started to find a better groove after struggling rather more at the last race in Spain. For Will things were a little more frustrating as it seems that damage to his front wing was more severe than was apparent, so it was a long race for him. Nonetheless, we are pleased to get both cars home for the fourth race in succession and to see we have improved the car a little here versus the teams directly ahead. It hasn’t been an easy week for the team as this event carries so much significance for us, but we have achieved our target of a strong race and a two-car finish. Although it is a very different result to the one we left Monaco with 12 months ago, in the context of this year it is a good performance.”

Thinking of our great friend and team-mate Jules Bianchi, today and every day. #JB17 #ForzaJules #MonacoGP

Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco 2015 – Qualifying

Circuit de Monaco
Saturday 23 May 2015

STEVENS Chassis 02 Q1 P19 1:20.655 9 laps
MERHI Chassis 03 Q1 P20 1:20.904 10 laps

The Manor Marussia F1 Team enjoyed a good qualifying today in preparation for Sunday’s 78 lap Monaco Grand Prix. Will Stevens ended the day in 19th position, ahead of his team-mate Roberto Merhi in 20th.

Will Stevens #28
“It’s encouraging to be a little bit closer to the cars ahead, but I think there was a little more to come from the car because our first run was cut short when I had a problem. We managed to get on top of it in between the first and second runs. Overall it was a good session and a very special feeling to take part in my first F1 qualifying here. I’m really looking forward to the race tomorrow and to making the most of any chances to progress through the field.”

Roberto Merhi #98
“It was not a bad qualifying for me. I am a little closer to my team-mate and my runs were good, so I think we can have a good race tomorrow. The chances of being able to keep pace with the cars directly ahead are a little improved by the nature of this track, so that means we can be in a good position to take advantage of any opportunities that may come our way.”

John Booth, Team Principal
“Overall, a good first qualifying for Will and Roberto on their Monaco debut. With Will it was not an entirely seamless session, so perhaps there was more to come there. With Roberto, he has had a slightly better session than the races so far, so a good job by him. We will have to see what tomorrow brings but our long run pace has been quite promising all weekend, so we hope to continue our run of two-car finishes as a fitting finale to what has been an emotional return to Monaco for our team.”

Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco 2015 – Free Practice 1 & 2

Circuit de Monaco
Thursday 21 May 2015

STEVENS Chassis 02 FP1 P19 1:23.234 28 laps FP2 P19 1:22.943 13 laps
MERHI Chassis 03 FP1 P20 1:23.404 31 laps FP2 P18 1:22.017 9 laps

We got our Monaco Grand Prix weekend underway today with the first of the free practice sessions for Sunday’s 78 lap race at the Circuit de Monaco. Roberto Merhi ended the day in 18th position, ahead of his team-mate Will Stevens in 19th, despite an abbreviated afternoon session following an off at the tunnel exit.

Will Stevens #28
“Not a bad start to our weekend here in Monaco. The day began reasonably well this morning but this afternoon’s rain hampered everybody’s progress. There is plenty of room for improvement with the car set-up and then I think the day has reminded everyone that a lot can happen here, which in turn creates opportunities, so we’ll be ready to take advantage of whatever surprises spring our way.”

Roberto Merhi #98
“I had a really good start to the day this morning and was quite happy with the car. I love racing here and I think the combination showed in possibly my best session of the season so far. Early in this afternoon’s session I lost the car under braking out of the tunnel, where it was quite slippery. It’s a shame but as things turned out, the rain meant that we would not have been able to achieve any meaningful running, so I’m looking forward to picking up where we left off on Saturday.”

John Booth, Team Principal
“This was always destined to be a difficult day due to the poor weather forecast. This morning we were making good progress, with both drivers running well. This afternoon, track time was significantly compromised due to the rain and our progress was further hampered when Roberto lost control under braking on the exit of the tunnel, causing quite a bit of damage to the front of the car. Fortunately we have an extra day tomorrow to prepare for FP3 and qualifying.”

For the Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco 2015

All you need to know about Round 6 of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship > Race 21-24 May…Location Circuit de Monaco…Debut race 1950 (65 years of racing in Monaco!)…Number of laps 78…Circuit length 3.34 km…Race distance 260.286 km…Lap record 1:14.439 (Michael Schumacher 2004)…Left hand corners 9…Right hand corners 10…Race start time 14.00hrs local…Driver numbers Will 28 Roberto 98

Round 6 of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco 2015, sees the sport heading to the French Riviera, for arguably the most celebrated event on the F1 calendar. It was certainly the scene of much celebration in 2014, when Jules Bianchi delivered a spectacular performance in his home race and achieved the team’s first world championship points. It was a result that would ultimately secure 9th place in the Constructors’ Championship and a key factor in the team’s return to Formula One competition in 2015.

John Booth │ Team Principal
“It is always a fantastic feeling to be racing in Monaco. It’s a very special occasion for the whole sport, but for our team it carries an even greater significance as the scene of so much jubilation 12 months ago when Jules delivered our first constructors’ championship points. That was an incredible, unforgettable day and it is very important to everyone in the team that we honour what Jules achieved for us. It’s a big part of the reason we are back racing today. Consequently, despite our obvious sadness, this weekend we will remember and celebrate what was a very important milestone in the team’s history and what was, above all, a mighty race performance from Jules.”

Will Stevens │ Driver No. 28
“I’m so excited to be racing in my first Monaco Grand Prix this weekend. It’s such a historic venue and the atmosphere is spectacular. From a racing point of view it’s a real drivers’ circuit, one which really showcases ability versus car performance. Precision is key as the smallest mistake can end up costing a driver dearly, but that’s all part of the unique challenge and I can’t wait to get started on Thursday. It will be an emotional weekend for the team as we remember Jules’ amazing achievement here last year. I was only watching then, but that was some race! We’ll all be pushing to ensure another strong performance and a two-car finish.”

Roberto Merhi │ Driver No. 98
“I can’t wait to be racing in Monaco. For sure, this is one of the highlights of the season for any driver. The track is a real adventure in any category but I’m thrilled to be racing here in F1 for the first time and on the 65th anniversary of such an historic circuit. The streets of Monaco are really exhilarating to drive, like Casino Square and the Swimming Pool section and it’s a really amazing vibe all weekend. This is a special place for the team, so I hope we can have a good performance in the race for everybody.”
