Mercedes to use old 2010 car in Monaco

(GMM) Mercedes will revert to its original 2010 car for the Monaco grand prix this weekend.

The Brackley based team unveiled a car with a longer wheelbase in Spain last weekend, which is tipped to have helped Michael Schumacher get the upper hand over his teammate Nico Rosberg for the first time in 2010.

But according to German media sources, the pre-Barcelona package - which in Rosberg's hands was driven to the podium twice in four races - will be up and running again in Monaco because it better suits the slow and twisty curves of the unique street layout.

The shorter-wheelbase car will however be fitted with the latest aerodynamic innovations in Monaco, including the knife-like rollover structure and engine cover air inlets.

"I am very optimistic that we will be more competitive than in Barcelona," team CEO Nick Fry is quoted as saying by Germany's RTL.

Makes sense to me, but are the new aero tricks going to help on a street circuit like Monaco? I've got my fingers crossed too.
