F1 enters its most glamorous and prestigious weekend at the 69th Monaco Grand Prix.

Everyone is chasing Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez as the Red Bull duo took back-to-back victories to open the season and lead the Drivers’ Championship by a wide margin. With overtaking other cars even more challenging in Monaco’s tight conditions, qualifying and pit lane performance are both crucial, which could open the door for Ferrari’s Monaco-born Charles Leclerc.

The weather of the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix

Conditions can change quickly on the French Riviera, but rain is currently forecast for Saturday and possibly Sunday. Rain played a role in last year’s race as approaching precipitation delayed the start of the race and the teams opted to start on the intermediate tyre. About 17 laps later, the teams began to pit for slicks and confusion on the Ferrari pit wall saw pole sitter Charles Leclerc pit from the lead to emerge fourth.
