Better still, the Mono isn't a murderous b*st**d. On my second flying lap, I pile into a right-hander that, mysteriously, is far tighter than it was on the first lap, necessitating a panicked mid-corner prod of the brakes to prevent a costly, crunchy Mono-barrier interaction. I flinch, expecting the rear end to part company with the track, but the Mono stays bolted to the tarmac, shrugging off my blunder and nipping neatly back into shape.
