Monaco GP Pre race analysis

Can Robert Kubica clinch the title in Monaco for Renault today? Based on this analysis, it is going to be hard but not impossible. Nevertheless, if this happen, then F1 could be exciting given that Monaco is not an easy overtaking street circuit. The exceptional qualifying performance of Kubica has certainly given the team a high dosage of adrenalin and it's about time Kubica take full advantage to get a podium finish. Would love to see this happening.

However, my bet will be for a Red Bull 1 and 2 finish, given that Vettel on P3 is behind Webber on pole and both the Red Bull cars are on the cleaner racing line.

While at the back end of the grid, Alonso will be starting from the pit lane due to Q1 qualifying accident yesterday. The prancing horse definitely showed lots of pace during practice and qualifying but the circuit is not forgiving either. So, Alonso has to dig deep and drive like there is no tomorrow in order to secure any points. Unless...there is the safety car intervention or pit stop mechanical glitches of the other top teams. Let's see later how it all pan out then.

For the second Sunday in a row Mark Webber finds himself on pole position at circuit where overtaking is notoriously difficult.

But the challenges of strategy and traffic – not to mention 78 laps avoiding Monaco’s unforgiving walls – means a win for him tomorrow cannot be taken for granted.

The start

Pole position is the place to be at Monte-Carlo. Start from there and you’re unlikely to be beaten into turn one.

It hasn’t happened since 2002, when David Coulthard, starting second, beat pole sitter Juan Pablo Montoya into the first corner. So Mark Webber is looking pretty secure.
