Sergio Perez is seeking back-to-back wins in Monaco

Following the cancellation of the Emilia Romagna GP, Formula 1 now heads to Monte Carlo for the glitz and glamour of the Monaco GP.

Initially the middle leg of a triple header, the Monaco GP – F1’s ‘crown jewel’ – now kicks off back-to-back race weekends, with the Spanish GP to follow.

Sergio Perez will be seeking to make it back-to-back wins in the Principality and close up to team-mate and championship leader Max Verstappen.

But could the unique characteristics of Monaco’s street circuit perhaps see Red Bull’s domination of F1 2023 come to an end and see Aston Martin, the upgraded Mercedes or Ferrari snatch a first win of the season?
