Weather Monaco Race Day
Let's talk about the weather. Monaco in May can range from blisteringly hot to monsoonal in the space of a day. I've experienced both and everything in between. All I can say is, whatever the weather, Monaco is the place to be for a Grand Prix.
In fact, of all the times I've been, I'd say the 1996 Monaco Grand Prix was the most fun, due entirely to the fact it rained heavily and I was watching the race from the side of The Rock. It turned into a mudbath, and sliding down the hillside on my butt at the end of the race was the quickest I've ever made it down from The Rock. Fortunately it continued to rain, so by the time I made it across to the other side of the track I was soaked through but clean enough of the mud to get into Rosie's Bar.
Despite the inclement weather, Monaco produced one of the most amazing races that year. It was Olivier Panis's one and only Grand Prix win and one of the smallest finishing fields in history. It was also Rosie's last Grand Prix before closing the doors on Rosie's Bar for the last time that September.
Anyway, that's enough reminiscing. We're here to discus the weather.
While I can't predict what the weather will be in Monte Carlo for the 2013 Monaco Formula One Grand Prix, I can provide the following weather summary of the last several Monaco F1 Grand Prix.
