    Let's hope it will be a rainy race day, like it is often at the end of May. It helps the spectacle and the unpredictability.

    Re: 2014 Monaco F1 Grand Prix

    It should probably be a good weekend for Red Bull, since they are generally faster in the corners, and the Mercedes power won't be as big a factor. I'm expecting this to be the best race of the season so far. But, no rain, please, even though Vettel has probably sacrificed a goat for it; tire strategy is one of my favorite parts of F1.


    Re: 2014 Monaco F1 Grand Prix

    Monaco is more about mechanical grip - not aero....


    Re: 2014 Monaco F1 Grand Prix

    Qualifying is the key. It's so narrow passing is a big problem even with a faster car.

    I predict Hamilton again. He is one of the best in doing that.

    This is my favourite race of the season. 

     


    Re: 2014 Monaco F1 Grand Prix

    I tip Nico on this one, he seems really ready for this epic challenge. Hamilton is driving 110% though lately.

    Re: 2014 Monaco F1 Grand Prix

    Before the season start, I had picked Nico to win it all. Didn't expect Hamilton to get back into form so quickly, which is almost unbeatable if he stays there, Hamilton has the most raw speed of any drivers currently on the grid, almost Senna like.

    Re: 2014 Monaco F1 Grand Prix

    Hamilton is the most exciting driver on the grid. In his first year in F1 he gave Alonso a very hard time, and this says a lot for his worth. Before that he strolled through F3 and GP2 to win both titles.

    He must be thankful to Ross Brawn for luring him to Mercedes and OTOH he was very astute to leave the safety of McLaren for a new team.

    I'd like to see Hamilton vs Vettel in an even contest.

    Okay - Nicos dad will outrace Hamiltons dad - in Monaco.  (that must be what they do on Fridays - old timers race.)

    I think it is time for Kimi to take this one out of the blue.  He is very hungry and up to this challenge.  The Ferrari should be in good shape vs the Merc on this track.  It may be the only one they have a chance with.  Pray for RAIN!

    Actually, one of the grotty rags in the UK ran a story that he'd been eyeing up a local gardener! (who himself, then went on to explain that he was hetrosexual and therefore not interested) Smiley

    Nobody driving a Ferrari has a chance, Monaco is all about classifying well and the Ferraris are pitiful on one lap performance, they will be lucky to classify ahead of the Williams and force Indiasbroken heart

    Re: 2014 Monaco F1 Grand Prix

    Hence they need RAIN.  You are correct - Monaco is all about qualifying (classifying if you like) - but if it rains ANYONE can wind that race and usually does.  It may be the best and only chance of the year for Ferrari is what I meant to say - totally not disputing the in general Ferarri does not have a chance in hell on any other track or in dry conditions even in Monaco.  So - GO Kimi!


    Re: 2014 Monaco F1 Grand Prix

    Yes I cannot wait for a solid rain race... those are often the most fun and show the true talent.

    Maybe tracks should be watered in dry weather (like drifting schools)...

    Just some drivers if they go by with too much of a lead - give them random showers and puddles of standing water to dodge.  (Give Ferrari a 'spray to pass' button. - don't they have a 'drinks' button already?)

    Rosberg is a cheat Smiley


    Re: 2014 Monaco F1 Grand Prix

    Its tough to tell, Shummi did that trick intentrionally in Monaco qualifying and paid for it, Its hard to belileve that Rosberg would try it intentionally as well  guess we willl never know, but regardles, Hamilton got robbed of a fair chance at the pole... he should at least get strategy pick tomorrow over Rosberg

     

    By the qualification, it looks like the only battles we will see are the ones between teamates with the same car since car's performances of the top temas are spread to much apart for any racing between teams broken heart

    Re: 2014 Monaco F1 Grand Prix

    At the very end of the Q3, Rosberg having the best lap time of the session so far "lost control" of his car and went into a run off area which caused yellow flags, etc and ruined Hamilton's flying lap who was behind him and he was beating Rosberg's sector timmings attempting to beat Rosberg's lap for the pole at that time. After that lap there was no more time in the session for Hamilton to make another attempt.

    Very unfair for Hamilton who seems like deserved the pole, and did not get it because Rosberg made a mistake right were he could ruin Hamilton's last lap attempt, though I think it was unintentional but you never know. So it will be a heated first lap it seems...

    Re: 2014 Monaco F1 Grand Prix

    Thanks for the info . Rosberg seems more of a fair guy , so hopefully this was unintentional . Maybe he did not like what Hamilton said about him the day before ?

    looking forward to the race .

    Re: 2014 Monaco F1 Grand Prix

    Right, if it were the other way around (Hamilton did it to Rosberg) I would have been a lot more suspicious, but it doesn't fit Rosberg's character IMO.

    Nevertheless I'm curious how they are going to handle the first lap, I'm sure the team has talked to them about not crashing the cars against each other angry
