It's Thursday and it's Free Practice day, which has thrown us all off a little bit, but it's how things roll in Monaco. First up, 90 minutes of practice, in which the teams will likely be testing out how the tyres work around the twisty slow corners of the principality.

Last year, Ferrari looked strong in practice here, so they may be on for some good performances today. Practice will begin at 9am GMT+1, which is 10am local time.

One to Watch

Rather than keeping an eye on a driver this time round, I reckon it'll be far more important to watch what goes on at Ste. Devote where they had to hurriedly resurface the track after a truck caught fire and caused some serious damage. Hurried repairs will mean an unusual surface, and with new tyres, that might be a key corner.
