I don't think the drivers are actually impressed about winning the "Quad". I think they probably do want to win at Monaco - because that is so difficult to do. Elsewhere - I think they probably want to win their home race(if they have one). They probably think that Monaco, Spa and Suzuka are the most challenging to try and race and actually win at.

Is Monaco really that challenging? Sure, it's prestigious and glamorous, but if you qualify on pole you're pretty much set. Not much actual racing. Once manual gear changes were dropped, it lost a lot of the challenge.

Of course it's still a challenge, going through places like Massanet, the Tunnel and Tabac, with the wall right by the track and you can't fail to be impressed. Would ove to see it in the flesh one day

Yeah, it is a real challenge. Even if you get pole - you still have to race around there. Make a mistake at Monaco and you're more than likely to crash out and lose the race - other circuits don't punish the mistakes as harshly. Little things can really hurt you, just take a look at Mansell : sliding off in the wet in 1984 in the Lotus, his engine going bang on him because Honda changed the size of the intercooler or something and didn't tell Williams and 1992 losing the lead because one of the strings on the wheelcovers used in parc fermé had loosened a wheelnut the night beforehand, and he was forced to pit. Monaco in the wet is a completely different thing as well.

Fangio completed this with the '1957 Monaco win.

Farina completed this with the 1953 Spa win

Coulthard completed this with the 2002 Monaco win

Hamilton completed this with his 2012 Monza win...needs another Monaco win to complete his 2nd QUAD

Prost completed 2 QUADS
Won Silverstone in 1993 to win his first Quad
Won Monza in 1995 to win his second Quad

Schumacher completed the Quad 3 times...coming up 2 Silverstone wins short of a 5 Quads

Senna completed his Quad with a 1993 Monaco win...a Silverstone win short of his 2nd Quad.

Vettel completed his Quad with wins at Monza and Spa in 2013

Other notables:
Alonso needs a Spa win to complete the Quad
Raikkonen needs a Monza win

Ascari needed a Monaco win
Jack Brabham needed a Monza win
Tony Brooks needed a Monaco win
Jim Clark needed Monaco
Mika Hakkenen needed Monza
Damon Hill needed Monaco
Juan Montoya needed Spa
Jackie Stewart needed 2 Spa wins to get 2 Quads


Really wasn't expecting to see Coulthard and Montoya on this list of greats.
Nigel Mansell just missed out with Monaco - and nearly won that in 1992.

As Vettel won Monaco this year, he only needs Silverstone and then he has another "Quad". It's conceivable that he'll do it this year.

Well - so much for that one! Maybe next year?
