F1 Monaco race preview

Sunday's race is going to be dominated by track positions after Friday and Saturday. Qualifying on Saturday for the Monaco Grand Prix is probably the most important of the season given the lack of passing on the tight track.

The drivers that start in the top 5 usually finish in the top 5 here and this should be no different. Last year's Grand Prix resulted in just a single overtake outside of the opening lap and overtakes from pit strategy.

This is why this year's Monaco race is so important. Despite all the history and fame of the Monte Carlo circuit, if the race is a snoozefest like last year, the FIA may force layout changes.

There's also the even more extreme outcome, which is Monaco is ditched from a stacked F1 2023 calendar.

While it would have seemed unfathomable to even contemplate Monaco being left off the schedule just a few years ago, F1's ever-growing popularity has resulted in the likes of a record number of Grand Prix plus brand new venues in Miami, Las Vegas, Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) and Sakhir (Qatar). Put simply, someone will have to lose out.

F1 Monaco

Reigning champion Max Verstappen claimed his fourth victory of the year in Spain and his third in a row to take the lead in the Drivers' Championship. There is every chance he won't relinquish it again.

His main rival is Charles Leclerc who is a Monaco native and is looking to be the first locally born product to win this race in nearly 100 years.

Leclerc will at least come to Monaco with a brand new engine after technical failures at Catalunya caused him to retire while leading the race. This is also Leclerc's last legal new engine. Every new engine after this will see Ferrari's leading driver hit with a grid penalty.

We expect Ferrari to hit back hard and Leclerc to salute again finally breaking his Monaco curse.
