‘I think there are two teams that’ll be faster than Red Bull in Monaco’ – it’s a big statement from Tom Clarkson. He’s been studying the data and explains on F1 Nation why the slow, tight corners of Monaco could give Ferrari and Aston Martin an advantage over Red Bull.
Clarkson and Natalie Pinkham are here to look ahead to F1’s most famous race and analyse who might go well in the Principality. Red Bull are on a roll this season but which of their drivers has more momentum – Miami winner Max Verstappen or street circuit specialist Sergio Perez?
Could Fernando Alonso’s experience give him the upper hand as Aston Martin seek to stay with the runaway Bulls? Can Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc end his run of bad luck on his home circuit? The Monegasque driver has two pole positions in Monaco, but has yet to finish on the podium here.
His team mate did finish in the top three last year though, and Carlos Sainz might fancy his chances of a repeat this weekend as he chases a first podium of the season.
Plus, Haas boss Guenther Steiner joins Clarkson and Pinkham to look ahead to the team’s 150th race in F1, and McLaren CEO Zak Brown talks all about the team, including how he is juggling the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indy 500.
