F1 -- Monaco Grand Prix

Wed May 25, 2016 6:28 pm

Well, the spectacle of the year of the Formula One season is this weekend and while not all agree that Monaco is still suited to F1, the glamour and mystique of Monaco remains.

A wet Monaco Grand Prix is in prospect with forecasters reporting a better than average chance of rain on Sunday afternoon in Monte-Carlo.
A band of moderate rainfall is expected to arrive from the west around the time of Sunday’s race.
However the build-up to the race is expected to be dry, with bright and sunny conditions forecast for qualifying. A largely cloudless day will see temperatures peak at around 24C while the grid for the race is being set.
Thursday’s practice sessions will be run in cooler, cloudier conditions with temperatures only just reaching the twenties.

A wet race could really even out the horsepower advantages and put the premium back on driver control making for an exciting race.

Pirelli for the first time this year is bringing the purple-walled ultra-soft tyres along with the soft and supersoft compounds.

For this reason alone I don't want to see a wet race.

I wan't to see what they can manage on the purple tyre. Looking at HAM and ROS tyre choices it's looks like they are planning to run the whole weekend on the ultra softs. They together with the Red Bull drivers and Kevin Magnussen chosen 1 set of soft, 2 sets of super soft and 10 sets of ultra soft tyres.

Will have to see if I find the time to follow this, given that the Nürburgring 24 hours will also be on. Yet another parade in the streets of Monaco, or watching a vintage Opel Manta with fox tail on the Nordschleife? Decisions, decisions...

Well if you're a fan of all types of racing, then North America is the place to be this Sunday. Up first at 8 am (EST) is the Monaco F1, followed at 11 am by the pre-race for the Indy 500 from Indianapolis, and then if that isn't enough, at 6 pm is the NASCAR Coca Cola 600 from Charlotte NC.

As to Monaco, we'll get to see the uber-soft tyres during qualifying in the dry which should be great. As to a rainy race, well some of the most exciting drives have been in the rain and if anything, a wet race would end the prospect of a straight parade thru the streets.

I don't believe we will ever have a proper wet race again. Not after Suzuka 2014. For one thing you would have to develop monsoon tyres and IM you'll need to relax parc ferme regulations to allow setup changes.
I want to see some wet weather action again, but I don't believe we will see any heavy rain racing.

Say what you will about Hamilton and Rosberg, that was a killer lap laid down by Daniel Ricciardo in the Red Bull. Absolute total commitment by Ricciardo and his line and speed thru the swimming pool turns was stunning.
I say well deserved. Going to be an interesting race, especially when you also consider that Ricciardo will start on the Super-soft while everyone else at the front will start on the Ultra-soft. So Ricciardo will be able to run a much longer first stint than anyone else. I'm looking forward to a great tactical battle between the teams on their strategy.

Yes, but might be irrelevant if the forecast rain arrives before the start of the race.

They felt that internal team dynamics were getting a bit intense between Lewis and Nico's side of the garage, so Toto and Niki decided that the drivers would swap mechanics. I think it was implied that they will swap again each year, or something to that effect. It's actually quite a good idea, hopefully ensuring that the whole team stays united.

As long as it doesn't get anywhere near the freakish weather Nürburgring suffered a little over an hour ago, they'll be fine. They literally had cars stranded on the track, due to the combination of an inch thick layer of hail and slick tires.

Great lap by Ricciardo, and I must say I'm glad he beat Rosberg as Hamilton had his run hampered by another problem.

I'm not sure the tyre strategy will matter though, I've heard the commentators say that either tyre could do a full race.

I believe they trust that the car will have some understeer, so they point the car somewhat towards the barrier.

Whiting needed to retire yesterday. No point in keeping the cars behind safety car until the best tyre is the intermediate. Why have the wet tyre if they are not allowed to race with it?

We were robbed of at least 7 laps on the full wets.

Dan R, said he was screwed.
A team is a team and badmouthing you team mates is not good thing but...
If he decided to pit and they were not ready, that is one thing but the team made the call and called him in.. then were not ready.
This is the foolish mistake made by a beginner in F4 or FF not a championship winning F1 team.

HM and CH are quick to fire drivers but they need to look at team & pit management!!
They won't though as they are the weak link!!

I have had for some time a weird take on the "body politic" at Red Bull, I think HM & CH consider themselves the stars and if anyone dares to aspire to eclipsing their lustre they will drive them out... we saw that with Mark, to some extent with Seb Vettel and if Max V becomes a superstar(which is almost certain) I can almost guarantee that they will find a way to drive him out as well.

Dan R, said he was screwed.
A team is a team and badmouthing you team mates is not good thing but...
If he decided to pit and they were not ready, that is one thing but the team made the call and called him in.. then were not ready.

I'd have to agree with him. The team cost him a Monaco win, just like Mercedes cost Hamilton last year. His sour demeanour is totally understandable - to win at Monaco win is hard enough, but to have one ripped from your grasp by your own team must be very hard to take. If he already had three Monaco wins under his belt, maybe he'd have been able to laugh it off.

Despite my dislike of Monaco as a venue for F1, as processions go, this was one of the more interesting ones.

Have to say credit to Rosberg for letting Hamilton through, he played the team game. When he let Hamilton through I doubt he imagined he'd end up seventh after being overtaken by Hulkenberg on the line. That's reduced his lead to less than a race win. He didn't look very happy in his post-race interview and his body language wasn't positive.

Could have sworn that Red Bull won the previous race.

Yes, Crashstappen lucked into a win, but it would have been Ricciardo's win, and probably a 1-2 if Red Bull hadn't screwed up strategy.

What's the point of ultra-softs if they last forever and aren't much quicker than Super Softs?

To be fair luck alone doesnt win you races, but I get your point. A horrible weekend for Max which he will want to forget as soon as possible.

Great race by Sergio 'Checo' Pérez. Changing to soft tires just at the right time and holding off Vetel for the rest of the race in the most technical circuit of them all.

Look how close to the wall Kyvat was by the swimming pool! I don't think its possible to get any closer without doing a Verstappen!

Now imagine next year with those tyres:

How many will tag the wall?

They look like PROPER F1 tyres! It might take two men per tyre to lift those off and on the car!  Wow!

Won't be an issue. The new tires will be 405mm wide at the rear, instead of the current 325mm, and 305mm wide at the front, up from 245mm in 2016.

The new tyres are roughly 1kg heavier than the current 8.5kg.

Even if Ricciardo hadn't made one too many pit stops in Barcelona, there was no guarantee that it would've been Ricciardo's win.
