After the mixed up day we had yesterday, the anticipation for the Monaco Grand Prix has been building. Yes, Sebastian Vettel secured another pole position, and yes Lewis Hamilton is starting towards the back of the top ten, but even that can't dampen the enthusiasm for the glitzy principality.

The race will be a real test for the new tyres, and overtaking aids, as Monaco isn't known for it's great passing opportunities. The action kicks off at 1pm GMT+1 with the Factbyte Factbox build up starting an hour earlier.

Predictions

So far this season, the racing has been clean enough to keep damage to a minimum, but if there's going to be a Safety Car anywhere, it's going to be Monaco, right?
