MONTE CARLO - May 19, 2008: For nearly 80 years, the Monaco Grand Prix has challenged drivers to tame the tight and twisty streets of the Principality. The Panasonic Toyota Racing Team can benefit from driver Jarno Trulli’s experience to face the mental and mechanical challenges the race track features, having won his first Grand Prix in Monaco in 2004. Drivers will need to pay particular attention to the tight curves and the close proximity of the walls next to the track to preserve their racecars' gearboxes, brakes and engines. Available video includes an edited video piece on the Panasonic Toyota Racing team preparing for the Monaco Grand Prix, and soundbites from Team Manager Richard Cregan, Chief Engineer Race and Test Dieter Gass, Senior General Manager Chassis Pascal Vasselon, and Head of Aerodynamics Mark Gillan.
