Pat Long on the podium at Monaco

Patrick Long, the Inside F1 Young Driver of the Year of 2001, has this year been racing for the Porsche factory as a member of the UPS Porsche Junior team alongside German Mike Rockenfeller. At Monaco Long qualified 12th for the Porsche Michelin Supercup event. The race in Monte Carlo witnessed carnage and Long was able to work his way through from 12th on the grid to finish third. The assembled Formula 1 journalists struggled to remember the last time an American flag was seen on the podium at Monaco but the consensus was that the last time was in 1964 when Richie Ginther finished second in a BRM.
