Rosberg and Hamilton Fight For Win in F1 Monaco Grand Prix
All eyes are on the F1 Monaco Grand Prix which will see Rosberg and Hamilton push for the chequered flag.
Last year, Lewis Hamilton, 29, watched Nico Rosberg drive to victory and he is determined to drive to perfection on the streets of Monaco this time round.On Sunday, Hamilton took the chequered flag in the Spanish Grand Prix and this marked his 4th consecutive victory. As a result, Hamilton is now at the top of the Formula One drivers’ standings for the first time in two years.
Despite this victory, Hamilton was disappointed with his 0.6 second win against his Mercedes team-mate Rosberg as he felt he had not performed at his peak at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona.
Hamilton will now focus on analyzing each detail of the race to ensure that Rosberg will not take the win in Monaco on May 25.
While the Briton is determined for a win, his team-mate Rosberg is determined not fall into second place as he has for the fourth successive time. Rosberg might have won the Australian season-opener, but his second place has now left him three points behind Hamilton and this is the first time that this German is not in the overall Formula One lead.
Meanwhile, Fernando Alonso and Ferrari only finished in 6th place at last weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix and it has been over a year since he has won a race. He finished almost a full lap behind Hamilton and Rosberg so it seems clear that Ferrari cannot compete with the Mercedes and Red Bulls.
Bookies are offering 8-13 odds for a Hamilton win and 7-4 odds for a Rosberg win.
