What to watch for

The Monaco Grand Prix marks the start of the European season following the cancellation of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix last week.

It poses something of a quandry for teams, many of whom have updates ready to deploy.

The question they’ll be asking is, are the unforgiving streets of Monaco the best place to do that?

Mercedes has decided the answer to that question is ‘yes’ as it looks to change direction on the troublesome W14.

Haas’ Simone Resta confirmed to Speedcafe that it has a new front wing and revised floor ready, but will it bolt them on?

McLaren sports a new look as it celebrates its maiden successes in the Monaco Grand Prix (1984), Le Mans (1995), and the Indy 500 (1974).

Oscar Piastri and Lando Norris will done a black, white, and orange design in a nod to the cars which were victorious in those races.

A little further up the pit lane, it will be curious to see how Sergio Perez bounces back after losing out to team-mate Max Verstappen in Miami.

The pair are locked in battle for the drivers’ championship, with Perez victorious in Monaco a year ago.

Beyond that, Monaco will punish the smallest of mistakes as it always does, with the added variable of rain come Saturday and Sunday.

Tyre compounds

Tyre supplier Pirelli has brought the softest three compounds in its range for the weekend in Monaco.

The white-walled Hard compound tyre is the C3, with the Medium the C4 and the Soft rubber the C5.

New for this weekend is the full wet compound, the Cinturato Blue, which was set to make its debut in Imola for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

A key difference is it does not require tyre warmers, with the tyre set to remain in use for the balance of the season.

Monaco Weather forecast

Thunderstorms are predicted for the media day in Monaco on Thursday, though they’re predicted to clear on Friday with sunny skies forecast for the opening day of track action.

However, wet weather is poised to return come Saturday, with the chance of rain increasing into the afternoon.

Qualifying is scheduled to begin at 16:00 local time, when the chance of rain is 24 percent.

It’s a bleak outlook for the start of the raceon Sunday, too, with a 75 percent chance of rain as the lights go out.

Encouragingly, conditions are set to ease thereafter, which could see a dry line emerge in the latter third of the race.
