Just a couple of years ago that would have seemed unthinkable, but with F1 keen to embrace exciting new destinations, long-standing venues like Monaco can no longer be considered safe from the chop.The tight and twisty street circuit, which has barely changed in decades and sees virtually no overtaking, has come in mounting criticism from fans.

F1 driver told team he 'needs new pants' after daredevil move during Monaco Grand Prix
Formula One driver 'needing new pants'.An overtake attempt on Yuki Tsunoda saw the F1 rookie forced to use a wet part of the track and it almost ended in disaster with his daring move at the Nouvelle Chicane.The idea was to move up the inside and get his car in front before the first part of the chicane but he lost traction and it appeared that he was set to hit the barrier, which would have seen him fail to finish a Grand Prix for the third race in a row.Remarkably, Zhou showed incredible reaction speed to prevent that from happening as he wrestled back control to stop a crash or even a spin - but his close call certainly led to nerves.The Chinese driver clearly saw the amusing side to the incident and told his engineer over team radio: "I need new pants after that one."Zhou's failed move meant he was unable to get ahead of Tsunoda for the remainder of the race and finished 16th, having previously fought his way from the back of the grid to 13th before losing numerous places and finding it difficult to complete further overtakes in the tight streets of Monaco.Speaking about his close call after the race, he said: "It was very damp on the inside, and there's not much slipstream you can gain. That was probably one of the closest laps behind Yuki, so I really had to dive up the inside at the last minute.HAVE YOUR SAY! Should Formula One ensure Monaco is kept on the calendar? Comment below."Unfortunately he tried to cover a little bit, and at that moment, I tried to avoid that and hit the wet patch.
