Monaco GP 2012 - Russells Transport Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Race Cars

Russell's Transport were in Monaco this week providing race car transport for the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 race cars ready for the 2012 Monaco Grand Prix this weekend. The race cars were transported down to Monaco overnight, ready for the 1st practice.  The 2012 Monaco GP ( formally the Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco ) was the sixth GP of the 2012 F1 season.

Mark Webber won the Monaco GP for Red Bull for the second time in three years from Nico Rosberg for Mercedes AMG Petronas F1, his second podium of the 2012 season with Fernando Alonso finishing third for Ferrarri.  Webber's win made Formula 1 history as he became the sixth different winner in six Grand Prix.       


Both Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 race cars were transported using two separate covered race car transporters with double drivers in both vehicles to keep the transit time to as short as possible.

Mark Webber started from Pole position and lead into the first corner, followed by Mercedes AMG Petronas' Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso.  Webber led from the start and controlled the race, measuring his pace to ensure he stayed ahead of Nico Rosberg.


Race and Show Car Transport

Russell’s Transport provide covered race car transport services to various different Motorsport teams and organizations. Russells Vehicle Management and Towing cover work from the Formula 1 Paddock, World Touring Car Championship, the Le man Car Grid, and many other different classes of Motorsport.

Being able to provide covered race car transport for Le man Cars gives us the confidence and ability to transport any possible race car. Because Le Mans cars meet the maximum FIA external bodywork dimensions and their ultra low level ground clearance it can make them challenging to handle, but we do this regularly, transporting them all over the world.

We have purpose built light weight covered car transporters, with sliding beds and low approach angles, so moving race cars is second to none, with straight forward loading and unloading.

We also specialize in the logistical transfer of team show cars, race cars and spares parts to many areas of the world. For more information on this please see our Motorsport logistics page.

We regularly transport Formula One race cars and show cars, rally cars, single seaters, Touring vehicles and LMP vehicles so you can rest assured that our experience with some of the worlds greatest motor racing cars guarantees an excellent service.
