Monaco GP: race preview

It was with a heavy heart that the FIA cancelled Ferrari's home race at Imola last week, but some things are quite simply bigger than F1. However, we're back in the cockpit this weekend, at none other than the iconic Monaco Grand Prix.

As arguably the most contentious race on the calendar, Monaco is still the most hotly anticipated circuit in F1. Known for rewarding flawless qualifying, the difficulty of overtaking, and plenty of spills, the old street circuit draws huge crowds and can, occasionally, throw up some upsets.

Monegasque Charles Leclerc has a love/hate relationship with his home track. A history of DNFs and poor team strategy have meant he's never taken pole in Monte Carlo. Rivals Red Bull's machine won't see as much benefit from its incredible straight-line speed, so if Ferrari play their cards right, this might be the perfect opportunity to claw back a few points.

Mercedes intended to debut a new – or rather, old – sidepod design at Imola, but this weekend will be the first time the W14 hits the track with a more traditional design. Zero sidepods are a thing of the past. Hamilton Stans will be waiting with baited breath to see if the 7-time champion can prove he's still the best on the grid.
