A driver's line-up you should consider for the Monaco Grand Prix.

This weekend is round six of the 2018 Formula 1 World Championship and that is the Monaco Grand Prix.

One of the most iconic race tracks in the entire history of F1, a circuit that has been part of the F1 world since the very beginning of the race series.

It is still to this day a track that leaves many speechless and amazed by the challenges each and every driver must face.

True racers have come out on top in Circuit de Monaco such as Ayrton Senna, Lewis Hamilton, Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso.

Monte Carlo is known for the high difficulties of overtaking due to the very small gaps between the cars and the barriers.

This is what makes this weekend so hard to predict for all Fantasy F1 players when picking their team.

Still unsure on who to include in your Fantasy F1 team?

Then take a look at our SIX suggestions...

#6 Charles Leclerc - $6.1m

A home race for Leclerc this weekend

To some it may look to be a big risk to include Sauber's Charles Leclerc for the Monaco Grand Prix.

But his previous form has already started the rumours of the Monacan moving to Scuderia Ferrari in 2019.

It maybe early days for the 19 year old, but he is already making a big impact this season especially for his team, Sauber.

Leclerc wowed us in Azerbaijan when he secured a sixth place finish and would at the next Grand Prix snatch a point in Barcelona by finishing in tenth.

The form is strong with this one.

But Leclerc's home race on the weekend could be difficult as a big qualifying performance is vital to achieve another points finish on Sunday.

Leclerc picked up 43 points in the last two races in Fantasy F1.

He is a risky option but might provide you with the goods.

#5 Nico Hulkenberg - $10.5m

As well as Leclerc, Renault's Nico Hulkenberg is another unsure decision for you to have the German in your fantasy team.

But Hulkenberg's many years in F1 and racing around the streets of Monte Carlo might just be the advantage this weekend.

The last couple of races has seen Hulkenberg given the dreaded did not finish (DNF) on the classifications leaderboard in Spain and Azerbaijan.

But in Australia, Bahrain and China, Hulkenberg was scoring points consistently by always finishing in the top 10.

Renault have looked good in the first two practise sessions as both Hulkenberg and his team mate Carlos Sainz have made the top ten in terms of fastest laps.

Hulkenberg was seventh fastest after FP2 while Sainz was tenth.

#4 Fernando Alonso - $11.9m

Alonso l
A Monaco GP winner in 2006 & 2007

This time last year, Fernando Alonso represented McLaren but on a different track across the pond.

The Spaniard sacrificed his seat for the 2017 Monaco Grand Prix so he could pursue his dream to win the Indy 500 in Indianapolis, USA.

However, Alonso's Honda engine blew up during the Indy 500 and failed to even finish the race.

Jenson Button raced alongside Stoffel Vandoorne last year in Monaco.

Alonso maybe racing in Monte Carlo this year but he has hinted he will race at the Indy 500 again in 2019.

Despite McLaren not having another winning car this year, Alonso has brought home good results for the team so far in 2018.

The 36 year old has scored points in every race so far this season and as he is a two time winner in the streets of Monte Carlo, the experience will surely help him achieve another points finish come Sunday.

Alonso is currently a cheap buy for your team, this is surely a no brainer?

#3 Kimi Raikkonen (Turbo Driver) - $18.9m

Raikkonen sure likes an ice cream in Monaco

One thing you are going to get with Kimi Raikkonen if 2018 tells us anything and that is consistency.

It is fairly obvious Raikkonen is Ferrari's second driver to Sebastian Vettel while the German hopes to get to a fifth driver's championship before Lewis Hamilton does.

The Finnish may have had a recent DNF in Barcelona, but when Raikkonen has crossed the finish line he has finished third place or higher every time this year.

Another podium for Raikkonen on Sunday could get you at least 16 points if he is to at least get third place.

Raikkonen could also be a good turbo driver if Vettel was not to finish higher.

#2 Daniel Ricciardo - $20.2m

Ric
Ricciardo & Red Bull could be the favourites to win in Monaco

If you don't include at least one of the Red Bulls for Monaco then you may just miss that chance of doubling your points tally.

Red Bull look to be the team to beat this weekend.

The free practise sessions on Thursday was a good day for both Daniel Ricciardo and his team mate Max Verstappen as they topped the leaderboard with lap times of 1:11.841 and 1:12.035.

Of course on race day, anything can happen.

Verstappen may get in Ricciardo's way during the race but it is the Australian who has been in better shape this year including a victory in China.

#1 Red Bull - $20m

Red Bull look to be the team to beat

And finally, the team you should at least consider is Red Bull.

Now if they are to be the favourites to pick up the race win come Sunday then it is a must to have Red Bull as your team.

It could be a 1-2 finish as well for Red Bull, Ricciardo and Verstappen which would bag you a lot of points.

Don't forget to make your final selection before qualifying begins on Saturday.
