We take a look at the highlights from last year's Grand Prix and what to expect from this year's race.
Last year's race was certainly a tense one for Daniel Ricciardo, the former Red Bull driver was down on power early on in the race, and, despite getting off to a great start Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel started to close quickly. After some brilliant driving, Ricciardo held off Vettel and managed to cross the line 7.3 seconds clear to take the race win. Vettel then took second with 2018 Champion Lewis Hamilton coming in third. It certainly was redemption for Daniel Ricciardo who was close to clinching that infamous Monaco win back in 2016 after a slow pit stop cost him the lead and eventually the race.
The question is who will take the victory here in 2019? Currently, Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas is at the top of the driver's championship, just one point clear of team mate and rival Lewis Hamilton. Will we see a Ferrari take the top spot on the podium? Or will it go to Red Bull's Max Verstappen? Historically Red Bull are notoriously good at this narrow street circuit.
The track itself winds around the iconic streets of Monaco, where drivers will weave around the hairpin at turn 6, the slowest part of the track before they head through the tunnel which takes them out along the harbour of Monaco. Fans watch on from on-board the yachts that line the track as the drives tackle the famous swimming pool complex, before heading round Rascasse and back up to the start/finish straight.
Qualifying is crucial here in Monaco. The nature of the track makes it pretty difficult to overtake, so a good qualifying session and a good start to the race are key to get a place on the podium. Precise driving, an excellent team strategy and an element of sheer bravery are what's required to be successful at the Monaco Grand Prix, so this year fans can expect to see some dramatic on-track battles that street circuits are famous for.
