Submitted by on November 4, 2014

Renault V10 onboardListen to the amazing sounds of that Renault V10 as we go for a pole-winning lap around Monaco with Jarno Trulli in 2004. At the time, this was a new lap record. Jarno Trulli spent three years racing glorious Renault V10s in Formula One before moving on to race with Panasonic / Toyota F1 in 2005. This video was shot during his first ever pole-winning lap at Monaco in 2004, which preceeded his first and only Formula One Grand Prix victory.

This fantastic lap was a full 0.411 seconds faster than the second quickest qualifier, and it set a new record at the time. Trulli ended up sixth in the season.

In the race Schumacher retired following a collision and second placed Trulli inherited the lead. He held off Jenson Button long enough to take the sole Formula One Grand Prix victory of his career. If you’re only going to win one, Monaco is the best place to do it!
