Rewatch the most bizarre Grand Prix of Monaco this weekend

At the Monaco Grand Prix it often only goes two ways. Either it's a boring parade, or it's a chaotic race full of excitement. The latter is certainly the case when there is some rain. The 2008 race is a good example of this, but it can hardly be any crazier than the 1996 Monaco GP.

Beforehand the race seemed to become a prey for Michael Schumacher. Two weeks earlier he had already achieved his first pole position for Ferrari at the circuit of Imola and did so thinly on Saturday in Monaco. The difference with the Williams of Damon Hill was more than half a second. So on the tight street circuit of Monaco he had a good chance of his first victory for the Scuderia.

On Sunday, however, it was already soaking wet before the start of the race and that would have major consequences in the first lap. In the run-up to the start of the race it seemed to dry up a bit so many drivers opted for intermediates. Schumacher was one of them.

How long that went well, you can see this Saturday on the Youtube channel of Formula 1. Due to the corona crisis, Formula 1 broadcasts a classic race every weekend and this time it is the turn of the tombola in Monaco. The broadcast starts at 14:00 GMT.
