Welcome to the Monaco GP! Welcome to Monte Carlo! Today starts one of the most special weekends of the year… and also one of the most complex. Saturday will be more crucial than Sunday on the Monegasque track, and the drivers know each other. All free practice is focused on finding the best setting for qualifying because overtaking in the race becomes impossible except for rain or accidents and the Safety Car. And beware, all this is possible: rain is forecast for Sunday and there is an 80% chance (looking at the history) for the safety car to come out.

Meanwhile, however, we arrive at the Monaco Grand Prix just a week after the last race. Verstappen was crowned in Barcelona and Red Bull gave a new blow on the table. Those from Milton Keynes now lead the Constructors’ World Championship… and also the drivers’ championship, with the return of Mad Max, who has won the last three races of the 2022 World Championship.

Meanwhile, Ferrari must react. Reliability problems in Barcelona for Leclerc after the high temperatures, and Carlos Sainz He is still looking for his best feedback with the Scuderia single-seater. The illusions and smiles of the first races have dissipated in Maranello… at least for now.
