McLaren looks to be the strongest, but if it's going to be raining, Ferrari doesn't have much to worry about their super softs then. It will be more about the drivers' skills then and that is only good. :wink: Many of the top drivers are in top teams though, but I wouldn't be surprised if Alonso for example could bring some good results with his Renault under wet conditions.

I don't know who is going to win, but so far the mclarens look in good shape. massa said that they are quite quick - regardless of the unknown fuel in their cars - so that must mean something. last year hamilton drove very good and now he has to win if the mclaren is indeed the best car here.

Hamilton does look very strong, but I expect the Ferrari's will be much more closer to Hamilton than last year. But we'll have to wait, who scores pole, cause that's very important. :thumbsup:

From BBC Motorsport

McLaren star Lewis Hamilton says the Monaco Grand Prix could turn into a "disaster" if rain falls in the Principality this weekend.

"It will be especially difficult here in the wet, especially this year without traction control," he said.

"Pedro de la Rosa (McLaren's test driver) made a comment at the last test that it is incredibly difficult to get to full throttle here in the wet.

"With this circuit being so tight, I think it's going to be a disaster."

Countryman Jenson Button has also voiced his fears about track safety should the weather turn nasty.

"Looking at the forecast, it appears it's going to be pretty awful," said the Honda driver.

"With the white lines going up to Casino Square, if you touch one you've a big chance of putting your car into the wall.

"So it's going to be pretty intense, and you just hope we get some practice in before the race.

"The last thing we all want is to be barrelling into Casino with no practice in the wet."

LATEST WEATHER FOR WEEKEND: Saturday will be drizzly and Sunday will be showery
