When Autosport asked “What the hell happened there?” in regards to Lewis Hamilton’s pit stop snafu at Monaco, Mercedes Formula One team boss Toto Wolff shed some light on what makes timing at Monaco more difficult to calculate than it is at other tracks.

Just kidding! Ferrari’s Kimi Räikkönen asked where the blue flags were as he picked his way through backmarkers in his best Kimi-ese, earning him a nice bleep from the television censors.

This ride along on Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes for his pole position-winning lap will show you just how absurdly close all the Formula One cars this weekend have to get to the walls to put down a fast lap of the impossibly narrow, windy street circuit.

What do you do when you have a Formula One World Championship in your name and currently race for Mercedes? You get your AMG V12-powered Zonda 760LH and you rip through the Monaco tunnel to hear it scream.

There's probably only one place in the world where a valet could end up parking ten Bugatti Veyrons in a single night. Monaco, of course.
