    Scuderia Ferrari is bringing new front suspension specific to the track (smaller turning radius?)

    I always thought all the teams did this to be able to get around the Grand Hotel hairpin?

    As long as I can remember the Monocco F1 race it has always been a smash up cars event, anticipate collisions from the very start and with those collisions and the damage that follows, the cost cap of teams vanishing before there very eyes.Definately expect the unexpected with one.

    What is interesting, is the thermal insulation Merc and RB introduced to their cars, probably to keep fuel cooler.

    His breaks failed. So ya, he crashed. Anyone would crash if their breaks failed.

    yep, saw pics of the Mercedes with their "white" cooling over the fuel tank to keep the fuel cool. In Spain, Lewis and Russell had to lift-and-coast at the end of the race due to overheating because of the ambient temperature in Spain.

    RedBull has done the same.

    Mclaren has gold wrapped around the fuel cell.

    Aston Martin has what looks like aluminium foil wrapped around the fuel cell.

    I have'nt seen the other teams follow suit.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    Aroutis.....it's "brakes" as in "brakes on a car."

    "Breaks" is when something is broken.

    You could say Leclerc's brakes broke....

    I got conflicting tweets. The tweets said the caliper broke into pieces while other tweets his pads broke into pieces.....so in general I guess it's safe to say his brakes broke.

    So a close battle is expected between Mercs,RB and us.
    I would love a Ferrari 1-2...but i dont see it happening.
    If i had to bet 5€ i would bet on Max again...all luck is with him recently.
    I dont believe that Mercs are so close but in Monaco anything can happen.Remember that last year we were quite behind generally,and we were the fastest team in Monaco.
    And one last thing...if Carlos can not win this race,i would like to just finish the race or defend Charles if he is infront.

    I'm expecting Monaco to be another "leveller" much like Barcelona was with the gaps between teams probably being a little bit closer again.

    I missed most of last week's race I saw Charles leading when I left the pub I was in and when I got into The Emirates Stadium he was out. Didn't see much else apart from Carlos finishing ahead of hamilton which was nice.

    I got conflicting tweets. The tweets said the caliper broke into pieces while other tweets his pads broke into pieces.....so in general I guess it's safe to say his brakes broke.
    Leclerc said that a screw (in the caliper) broke

    Normally Ferrari should have the best car for this race

    Qualifying will be important. Get P1 here and you're likely to win the RACE....75% of the time.

    The cars have become massive, the streets are just as narrow... this is ridiculous...

    Even in the rain I expect a parade with zero passing on track. I understand the history and glamour, but it's easily the most boring race on the calendar

    Normally we should had the best car for Singapore and Hungary in 2018...but we didnt...
    Normally we had no chance in Singapore in 2019...but we won there.
    So i understand what you mean...and i agree,but we need some luck also and Carlos to perform like Charles.
    Hopefully it will be a good weekend with no crashes.
