Toro Rosso preview the Monaco GP

Jean-Eric Vergne is pleased to return to what is a home race for him, while Daniil Kvyat gets his first taste of racing on a street circuit.



Jean-Eric Vergne: "It's something of a home race for me, given there is no French Grand Prix on the calendar for the moment. Actually, I can really tell myself that I'm at home, because I stay in Menton for this race, which is really across the "border" in France! I have raced there twice in Formula One and both times I performed well. I think it is one of the hardest races and you should always arrive there in a humble state of mind and never expect anything just because things went well the previous year. I am not going there being overconfident. You have to work hard all weekend and not make any mistakes and it requires far higher levels of concentration from the beginning to the end of the weekend. We will certainly be busy in the cockpit this year, but by now we are used to all the new jobs we have to do in the car. I enjoy the weekend a lot, with everything that goes on, even if, as a driver, I live in a bubble over the weekend, not going to the Casino or eating out in restaurants. But it's great fun to be racing in a place like this."

Daniil Kvyat: "Monaco for me will be an absolutely new experience. Not only have I never raced there, I have never even been there on a visit. Of course, I have watched a lot of races from Monaco on TV and a lot of on-board footage. But it will really be a step into the unknown for me, even if I have now driven it on the simulator. In fact, I have never raced on any street circuit. I am really looking forward to the weekend, mainly from a driving point of view, but I also want to find out what it is that makes this race such a special event for all fans of motor sport."

Here's a man with a lot of reasons to be happy
