F1 2018: 5 early predictions for the 2018 Monaco GP
The 2018 Monaco GP is this Sunday! Monaco isn't always the most exciting, but hopefully we will be in for as exciting a race as we predict!
Lewis Hamilton has extended his lead in the Formula One Driver's Championship, and Mercedes have placed themselves squarely at the lead of the Constructors race.
Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari are still in it with a strong chance, but it's clear that Mercedes are back to fighting form.
While Monaco isn't always the most exciting race, the attitude of the drivers this season and the speed of the cars should be enough to deliver a serviceable race.
Will Vettel and Ferrari bounce back? Will Lewis Hamilton take his driving to the next level? Will Valtteri Bottas or Kimi Raikkonen emerge as a credible contender in the 2018 drivers Championship? We don't know, but like always, that won't stop us from guessing.
#1 Grosjean feels another failure
As of yet, Romain Grosjean has yet to score a point in the 2018 Formula One season. This seems especially surprising given the Frenchman's previous success, and the raw speed that the 2018 Haas car boasts.
Grosjean has not had a great season, with wheel gun failures, a highest finish of P13 in Bahrain and 2 self-caused incidents.
We all know that Grosjean has it in him to grab some great points for Haas, but in his current form, it feels unlikely that his luck will turn around in Monaco.
At a track where position is everything, and the smallest of mistakes can send you into the barriers, Grosjean has his work cut out for him to make it through Monaco with some points. Hopefully, we will be wrong, Romain can avoid the wrath of Marcus Ericsson, and get back to his scoring ways.
