Monaco Grand Prix 2018 weather forecast

Monaco Grand Prix

Thu 24 MaySun 27 May 2018

The ever popular Monaco Grand Prix will take place once again this year on 24-27 May 2018.

No race or circuit of the Formula 1 Calendar can truly match the excellence, the glamour and the challenge of the Monaco Grand Prix. From Casino Square to the World's most famous Hairpin, through the tunnel and past the luxurious yachts, Monte Carlo is a circuit of legendary corners full of history.

Extremely challenging for both teams and drivers, the narrow circuit through the glamorous streets of the Principality has fuelled dreams in Motorsports for decades. The tight circuit with almost no overtaking opportunities is extremely hard to master, and for some drivers winning the Monaco Grand Prix is even more prestigious than winning the World Championship.

24-27 May - How will the weather affect this year's Monaco Grand Prix?

Known as the race that every driver dreams of winning, the Monaco Grand Prix includes a demanding mix of hairpin bends, flat-out sections and harsh barriers that make the race a must-watch for any Formula 1 fan. With overtaking almost impossible, qualifying is critical for the Monaco Grand Prix.

How does weather affect racing?

Different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds.
