2018 Monaco Grand Prix
Hello F1 Fans, With the first race of the 2018 European season behind us, up next is the Monaco Grand Prix; the most glamorous, thrilling and unlike any other race on the calendar. Tucked away on the picturesque Cote d’Azur, the Principality’s tortuous, barrier-lined streets provide some of the greatest challenges on the F1 calendar; it’s the race that every driver wants to win. Championship Standing: With his dominant win in Spain, Lewis Hamilton now leads with 95 points. He is followed by Sebastian Vettel and Valtteri Bottas with 78 and 58 points respectively. On the constructor front, Mercedes is in front with 153 points, followed by Ferrari and Red Bull with 126 and 80 points respectively. The Track: The 3.34 km Monaco street circuit, shortest on the calendar, is unique in many aspects: (almost) non-existent run-off areas, slowest average speed of the year (with a race distance of about 260.3 km), extremely bumpy and narrow. While the teams bring the highest possible level of downforce, mechanical grip and drivability are what make the difference for a quick lap. Given that overtaking is almost impossible, it goes without saying that the qualifying session is the most important of the year. Rain or a safety car would have a large impact on the race result. Tire allocation: Pirelli will allocate the pink hypersoft (first time), purple ultrasoft and red supersoft compounds. Talking points: Can Lewis Hamilton make it three in a row? Or will Sebastian Vettel bounce back with a win? Can Red Bull get their second victory of the year? Race will start at 9:10 AM with the pre-race starting at 8:30 AM. It's going to be another exciting race. We hope to see you all!
