    2018 Monaco Free Practice & Qualifying

    It's race week and we didn't have a Monaco thread yet, so I figured I would do the honors. Looking to see Ferrari bounce back this weekend.

    FORZA FERRARI!

    Everybody is talking about Red Bull domination...
    I'll say it once again.
    Monaco and Canada are win or die.
    We need to win both and at least one 1-2 finish.
    Otherwise it's over for 2018.

    Monaco wasn't our happy hunting ground until last year, where we locked out a front row and scored one-two, leaving Sky to whine about team orders. Ferrari needs to win again now to stop the rot and hopefully put as much points between Vettel and Hamilton as possible. Having Red Bull between red and silver would be perfect. With longer wheelbase it will be a big test if we still have an edge on slow circuits. Canada looks good as well with our improved engine performance, as does Austria, it will be good to be in front before Paul Ricard and Silverstone comes along with special tyres and are expected to be Mercedes strongholds as well (they excelled on aero circuits like Silverstone and Austin last year).

    With increased HP Ferrari will own Pole and 2nd spot, either driver will do. All we will need is Max and Lewis fighting for 3rd and 4th place a second or two away from us. I wish Leclerc luck at his home race!

    Stop talking rot the year is only young there are many twists and turns to unravel in this year's f1 calender the only 1/2 pressure is the one that you are applying to your selves the word must is to authorative and implies death if this is not achieved to strict relax .

    RBR will be very strong, expecting some struggle for Mercedes with the HS,US tyres, but I might be wrong of course. Dont know about us, we have a high-rake with better power as RBR. Only time will tell.On paper with a longer-wheel based with it you can better, and faster manouver the car in the corners RBR should be the fastest car in this race, with Ferrari behind and then comes Mercedes.

    I think it’s redirected for clarification on Ferrari which they are using the turbo charge for power boost currently.
    May be mercs too wants to be active on that.

    We need to outscore Merc by as much as possible. So technically a 3-4 with two Merc DNFs would be better than a 1-2 and a Merc 3-4. RBR will be very strong and if one can hope than a 1-2, a RBR 3-4 and a Merc 5-6 would be a dream result.

    The 10 cm longer wheelbase this season will hopefully be negated by the hyper softs. We also have a more extreme rake this season compared to the last one.

    Merc's bringing suspension upgrades to Monaco due to their LWB. I doubt it will help them. Looks to be a fight with RedBull.

    I’m sensing Ferrari win this weekend.
    Main threat would be mad max, not DR. He’s not the best qualifier.

    Our drivers warming up before Monaco with an annual football match at 18:30 in Monaco. Seb, Kimi, Felipe, Giancarlo, Capelli all present. Of course Hamilton does not participate, he would rather be on red carpet.

    No indeed, that's why he took pole here in 2016 and dominated the race untill RBR screwed up for him...

    Vettel: "For Monaco there will be a lot of changes in the car. But even if we are great in Monaco, we can‘t forget that we still have some work to do."

    2016 our car was no where to the best. Mercs with LWB couldn’t do it. RB was the best car on that track.

    That was during the F1 era. Now we are in the F Pirrelli era. I can only hope our drivers get an engine to race with at Monaco to go with the multi colored tires!!

    Typical no brains mercedes when they had 2 years start on ferrari and others in the hybrid era they were clever imagine if ferrari had the 2 years start now that we have caught up to them they will behave like little brats to gain the upper hand ferrari invents the others copy and cry.

    This is good?
    In the past, even I don't like, honestly hate Monaco "track", I was enjoying watching great Schumacher driving the Monaco streets on rain...
