  1. Not that hard to choose top-5 drivers. But what about Bottas.. he could be the joker of this race.

    1. You’re right about Bottas, especially considering the way he’s been qualifying. Since this is Monaco where qualifying is very important, he could do well with that Merc engine.

  2. I’m still sticking to my guns, and Mercedes will win this. But with which driver…

  3. The relative strengths of the front-running teams make the predictions a bit boring. So far, I’ve pretty much gone with Mercedes – Red Bull – Alonso, although of course that still leaves plenty of scope for permutations (and I’m hardly leading the championship, it has to be said). Of course, Monaco is the perfect place to go with a non-Mercedes driver for pole and win, but I’ve stuck with Hamilton. Maybe it’s just me that’s boring :-)

    Still, so far in 2014 it’s more fun to predict P6 to P10, as that’s where one’s knowledge and insights about who is doing well or who is good at a particular track can really pay off. Perez, for example, has always shown promise in Monaco, even if it has not translated into results – the same for Grosjean, who has been quick in the past, but not error-free.

  4. I think one of the RBRs will split the Mercs this weekend. For now I went with Vettel, but will wait for the Saturday practice to make the final prediction – because if it stays bone dry I think Merc will simply walk home with it.

  5. I think Rosberg would kiss the barriers and score a DNF. He looks too desperate to get one-up on Hamilton, and is going to make a mistake, I guess! So, Ham, Vet, Ric, Alo, Rai…

    1. @dileep_nair I predict one of Mercedes kiss the barriers too. So my predictions:

      Position 1 – Nico Rosberg
      Position 2 – Daniel Ricciardo
      Position 3 – Sebastian Vettel
      Position 4 – Fernando Alonso
      Position 5 – Kimi Raikkonen

      1. @ruliemaulana – maybe you are right. so far, Nico seems to have got the measure of Lewis!

  6. I think that the pole (if dry) will be about a second slower than last year due to the cars being less ‘drivable’ and far lower levels of downforce. I think that Lewis will clinch pole from Nico, and this will cause a DNF for Nico in the race because of his desperation to subsequently pass him. Then, Vettel will have to finish second because he needs to prove he is the number one at Red Bull, with Ricciardo third. I reckon Kimi will get fourth as Ferrari will improve and he is starting to be able to tune the F14 to his liking, and Fernando will be unable to pass him around the tight corners and finish next. I would love a Williams to finish in sixth, so maybe Massa, needing to prove his worth and not become a number two driver again.

  7. Its hard not to pick Hamilton, but I think Rosberg has his best chance yet.

  8. Had to be objective with the quali times and top spot on the box. Would like to see it shuffled a bit but when I saw the F1F end of year prizes on offer had to take the emo out of the selection process. I’m so far in the hole in ’14 LDM is going to send me a knife!

    Stoked here in the US for the biggest racing weekend of the year by far. F1, Indy and when a nap is needed, Cup. Enjoy everyone!

  9. I went with the obvious (HAM ROS RIC VET) and then threw in Kimi (more personal want instead of what will actually happen)

    1. I did the same as you, but threw in Alonso rather than Kimi. As much as I want Kimi to be up there, it’s not looking very likely! Hopefully he’ll prove me wrong.

  10. FP3 has made this even more difficult to predict. My mind is telling me Rosberg, but it is frequently wrong and I have a lingering message that Hamilton will steal pole. And I’m pretty certain whoever gets pole will win.

    But Ricciardo – and even Vettel, as he was held up in S3, prior to which he was quicker – could upset the applecart and score the first major victory over Mercedes. However, Mercedes could simply have been holding pace in reserve.

    Tricky one this.

  11. Since I’m already way down in the standings, I’m just gonna go with my gut. Rosberg pole and win, Danny 2nd, Lewis 3rd. Seb 4th and Alonso 5th. Hopefully I’ll feel better about placing a Ferrari in the top 5 at Canada..

  12. I’m just going for the underdog ( ;) ) here as he would have been very close if not faster than HAM if not held up:
    Pole: VET

  13. I pick Hamilton. he is the faster of the 2 Mercedes drivers over 1 lap. Vettel and Ricciardo have a better car, but even at a track where that is evident through the turns, they still only can match and not beat the Mercedes – all because of the engine power disparity – that is sad on a drivers circuit, the Mercedes have several tenths advantage of the redbull in places where driver skill is not required, the straights. interestingly the torro rossos are proving to have a great chassis also, faster then merc powered McLaren and Williams, both which are set for another disaster season – behind similarily powered Force India at this track.

  14. I think Hamilton will be pole by some gap, then complain about the handling of the car. Win the race the next day tell the team what a good job they done. Then Nikki Lauda will have a go at another team for not being as Mercedes.

  15. I have to say, I’ve just become a full engine convert. I’ve always thought they’ve been great on the technology side. A 1.6l V6 that can generate more than 1000bhp (without fuel flow limitations) is quite a marvel, but I’ve always wished they were a little louder.

    But hearing the tyres squeal as drivers lose it around the twisty Monaco streets adds a dimension that’s been missing from F1 for as long as I’ve been watching it and I love it! It adds much more to the drama than constantly loud engines.
