    Monaco Grand Prix.jpg
    Despite the hype surrounding Fernando Alonso at Indianapolis, Formula One does have a Grand Prix next weekend in Monaco, so who do you think will cross the line in first place?

    Anything can happen at Monaco and it usually does, added in to the mix the new regulations with faster cars, higher cornering speed and a closely packed grid means this years Monaco Grand Prix could well prove to be one of the most unpredictable yet.

    Mercedes and Ferrari both appear to be taking it in turns to head the F1 pack, and with the tight and twisty nature of the circuit negating engine advantages held by both Mercedes and Ferrari over the Red Bull team, it could well be time for Daniel Riccardo and Max Verstappen to get themselves in with a shout of top honours.

    So, who do you think will win the 2017 Monaco Grand Prix?

    The last years my tip always has been Rosberg... Harder this year.

    Maybe Vettel, but i see the Mercedes faster in Qualifying and therefore i think Hamilton is gonna make it. I have high expectations to Bottas but i dont think he can shine in Moncaco

    I think Vettel will win it, but my heart wants Jenson Button to be holding aloft the winners trophy. :D

    Not a fan, but I'll be shocked if it's anyone but Hamilton.

    Lewis Hamilton. I'm a SF fan, but I fear Ferrari will f*ck up the pitstrategy once more.

    Just the once! Once is all it will take for a DNF. (My guess is he'll do it at Sainte Devote)

    I'm really hoping for another different winner this season, so VET, HAM, BOT are out for me. That leaves RAI or RIC, and last years' performance guides my judgment. Heck, we might even see a spoiler out of PER if enough happens up front.

    I think we all know that likely Vettel or Hamilton will end up winning. But let's not forget that Bottas, Raikonnen, and Verstappen also have a pretty good chance.

    Hamilton worked his tyres to perfection during last year's race, so its hard to choose anyone other than him...as much as I don't want to.

    It'll be tough to call, it's that close between Ferrari and Mercedes that the race will be down to skill, not the car.. But I'm going to say that Seb will edge this one!

    Vettel, Raikkonen or Ricciardo.

    Mercedes' long wheelbase car, coupled with the very low tyre pressures, should just about put them out of contention unless Vettel's car blows up. Red Bull, however, are a much bigger threat on a track with no need for engine power and had the best car both at Monaco and at Singapore last year, so the gap should go down to the point where Mercedes might just fail to put either car on the podium.
