F1 preparations in Monaco

Sergey Dolya • 4 minutes read • April 9th, 2016
6 weeks before the Monaco Grand Prix, the country begins to build up stands, and the main highways of the country are fenced off with steel protections. After the race, 2 weeks are spent on dismantling all the constructions. I was in Monaco a few weeks before the race and I will show you photos of the streets where it takes place.
The track in Monaco, 2,075 miles long (3,340 km), is the shortest, the narrowest, the slowest, the most dangerous and the most demanding to racer’s high pilotage skills track in the championship. Narrow, fenced off with steel barriers, roads of Monte-Carlo don't forgive a single mistake and demand the extreme concentration from pilots. (c) http://www.formula1-monaco.ru.

The major part of the route passes on the embankment, in close proximity to water and yachts moored there:
Stands for spectators are built up in front of the 

Casino 

too.
Before the turn to the embankment, the route leads into the tunnel (it is marked with a dotted line on the map).
And then it goes to the speed section.
Main stands are situated on the quay. There are also seats sold for the balconies of the neighboring hotels.
You are even allowed to get on one of the stands. There is an open space with a strange marking. I suppose all the press is going to be there.
All the constructions are made of the prepared materials lying nearby:
From 

Monaco

Barcelona
