Formula 1 teams will enjoy a better working environment in Monte-Carlo next year as the Principality upgrades its pitlane and paddock complex for 2018.
According to Germany’s Bild, Monaco has earmarked EUR 30 million to be invested in its new infrastructure project.
“Monaco wanted to prepare the new pitlane for 2017, but engineers were unable to guarantee they would finish it in time. So the project was postponed to 2018,” said Bild.
The Automobile Club de Monaco’s Richard Micoud confirmed the news. “Yes, it’s true,” said Micoud. “The new pit building will be two-storey. Teams will finally have more space and will not be tripping over their feet.”
Monaco’s current pit complex was used for the first time in 2004.
