Evans tops practice in Monaco

7:15 am on 25 May 2012

The New Zealand racing driver Mitch Evans has topped the practice times for the GP3 race at this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix meeting.

Evans is the GP3 championship points leader.

But it was a different story for Tauranga's Richie Stanaway racing in the Renault 3.5 series.

He crashed on his first flying lap in the only practice session, and says he'll have to work hard in the remaining sessions to get to grips with the demanding street circuit.
