After an exciting weekend in Imola, Formula 1 is ready to hit the track for the eighth event of the season: the 2024 Monaco Grand Prix, the most glamorous of the year. This race, unique in its kind, stands out from the others on the calendar for its charm and iconic history. In Monte Carlo, the true talent of the drivers emerges, with walls incredibly close and where the courage to take risks is crucial.

This element becomes particularly decisive during Saturday’s qualifying, when drivers strive for the perfect lap through the narrow streets of the circuit. With the current ground-effect cars, every corner can hide an unexpected event, making the battle for pole position uncertain until the last moment. Just remember last year, when Max Verstappen, in the final sector and skimming the barriers, snatched the pole from Fernando Alonso, demonstrating how unpredictable and thrilling this race can be.

Home Race for Charles Leclerc

This will also be the home race for Charles Leclerc, who has a love-hate relationship with the Principality’s circuit. He used to traverse these streets every day to go to school or play with friends, dreaming of winning in front of his Monegasque audience. However, fate has often been adverse. We could call it a “curse” as he has never managed to reach the podium, even from the junior categories. In Monte Carlo, Leclerc has secured two pole positions, in 2021 and 2022, but in the first case, he didn’t even start due to a problem with his car, while in the second, he finished off the podium due to a strategy error.

Last year, a penalty for impeding prevented him from fighting for the win, given that overtaking in Monaco is nearly impossible. Could this be the right time? Who knows. To finish the Principality race successfully, a good start is needed, at least from the front row, but this season qualifying, once the pride of the Maranello team, has become a real Achilles’ heel. The updates brought to Imola have expanded the SF-24’s window, much stronger on race pace than its predecessor, but less so in time attack. There’s still a lot of work to be done to fine-tune this package.

20 Drivers Battling

The twenty Formula 1 drivers will battle not only among themselves but also with the countless challenges that this iconic track presents. We are talking about 19 turns (11 right and 8 left), a DRS zone on the short start/finish straight, with the Detection Point located before the entrance to Turn 18, the famous Rascasse. For the Monaco GP, Pirelli has made available to teams and drivers the Hard C3, Medium C4, and Soft C5, the softest compounds in their range. Monaco circuit won’t expose the tires to high lateral forces given the relatively low cornering speeds compared to other tracks, but it will still require a perfect setup, to be identified in the three free practice sessions available to them, to achieve excellent traction on an asphalt set to evolve over the race weekend, where Formula 3 and Formula 2 will also have their space.

The challenge in Monte Carlo will be played out over 78 laps on the Circuit de Monaco, which is 3.337 km long. The track record, 1’12″909, was set in 2021 by Lewis Hamilton, driving a Mercedes W12.
