25-28 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.
