F1 2019: Monaco Grand Prix Preview

Formula One rolls into Monaco this weekend as Mercedes aim to extend their one-two streak as tribute to three-time F1 champion and Non-Executive Chairman – Niki Lauda, who sadly died earlier this week.

Monaco however is a circuit that can throw up plenty of surprises with its tight and twisty circuit so expect plenty of drama throughout the field.

Three Pointers

  • Red Bull have a strong all round car so expect them to be huge threats on a circuit where speed isn’t as important.
  • Toro Rosso have had one of their cars finish in points in five of last six Monaco Grands Prix so expect them to feature amongst midfield frontrunners.
  • Should Ferrari find themselves leading the race, this is the perfect track to safely play team orders given the difficulty of overtaking.
