    If cars are like they are today, then, i would say 95% in Monaco
    We have:
    Better breaking
    Better traction
    Better car rotation in corner
    Better acceleration
    Better driver (for a first home victory after so many unlucky years)

    The only reason I am pessimist bout Monaco is because I don't want to zinx (sp?) it, because of the history Charles has there.
    I want to see us win this there badly.
    And yes, I do in fact agree with you but I am trying not push my lack , so, yes, I 've put some low ratings there just for ... "fun". But quite honestly I am quite optimistic, as long as we keep on doing what we're doing , which quite honestly I believe we will.

    Barring a very unlikely resurgence from Mercedes, the track layout at Monaco heavily favors Ferrari. Slow corners requiring high traction. Red Bull will be in a lot of trouble at that track.

    Although Monaco can be a crapshoot given the barriers.

    Among the obvious setup at Monaco (high downforce) a short wheelbase car is also ideal at this "track."
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    Tracks where the F1-75 is incapable of winning don't exist. If not for the VSC in Saudi which allowed Verstappen to close the gap from 1.8 to 0.8 and cool off his tyres, Charles would've won all 3 races.

    So that's the only thing that can stop us from winning: bad luck.

    As of now, there appears to be a chance on any circuit. When the upgrades start appearing, though, you never know whether it may be a backward step or undermines what performance level we currently have. Don't want to sound pessimistic but we all know how quickly things can change and I don't like predictions either, but it's looking positive!

    Considering I put Melbourne on the low end... I don't want to jinx it but I'm looking forward to the next couple months

    I just hope Newey doesn't come out with a spaceship 0.5 s/lap upgrade that would really put the pressure on us to do the same.

    I am really starting to think so.
    Charles was flying, at a supposed RB track.
    I like our chances.

    Ok but we should remember RB missed to set their car

    RB said that they “expect improvement, but obviously not to Ferrari’s pace”.
