Webber chasing Monaco hat-trick

Webber chasing Monaco hat-trick

Defending Monaco GP Champ Mark Webber is looking to achieve his third victory around the streets of the principality come next Sunday.

The Red Bull racer grew up on Australia's street circuits and carried that knowledge with him as he progressed through the ranks and in F1.

A Monaco winner in 2010 and again last season, the 36-year-old is keen to secure his hat-trick and maybe even beat the Mercedes drivers to pole position.

"It's always been a good circuit for me," Webber told Adam Cooper's F1 blog. "In F3000 I won there, and I've had a couple of wins in F1.

"I think I had good street circuit experience in Adelaide GP Formula Ford, Surfer's Paradise Formula Ford.

"I think I'm comfortable on street circuits. Well, those type of street circuits, I can't translate it to Singapore yet, I don't know why!

"I don't know what makes me feel as comfortable as I do round there.

"It's still a daunting place, don't get me wrong, I'm not sitting here saying you're on holiday round there - it's a very, very challenging venue.

"If Mercedes have their one lap pace it might be interesting, if they bang it up the front there again."
