We shall be watching the qualifying from the best viewing position to see the skill and courage of the drivers as they charge their historic Formula 1 cars through Casino Square. There are a number of different grids, starting with the 1924 Grand Prix cars, through to the 1970s F1 cars. The beauty of these priceless cars is a feast for the eye and ear.
