Monaco GP Preview
  An F1 race like no other

Monaco is a race like no other. You don't need to be an F1 aficionado to know that much. The tight, twisting circuit that threads its way through the famous streets of Monte Carlo is a one-of-a-kind throwback to the eras of Fangio or Caracciola. And even now, decades later, this remains the crown jewel of the Formula One calendar. It's the race every single driver on the grid wants to win.

Mercedes ace Lewis Hamilton won the Spanish GP at Barcelona ahead of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel who lost the race because Mercedes outsmarted Ferrari with better race strategy. During a virtual pace car period Mercedes called Hamilton in just at the end of it and Ferrari did not, costing Vettel 8-seconds when he pitted later and that was the race as he lost by 3.4 sec. Daniel Riccardo finished third for Red Bull to grab the final podium position.

F1 still trying to Find Five Seconds
  New rules have yet to produce the speeds expected
Wider tires and more downforce have increased speeds but not as much as hoped for

84.681 seconds... This was the reference taken midway through 2015 when it came to formulating a goal for the new generation of Formula One cars. They were to be visually more aggressive, harder to drive and significantly faster thanks to new rules that, for the first time in the sport's history, aimed to increase the cars' performance. In numerical terms, that translated to lap times five seconds a lap faster than the 2015 pole time of 1:24.681 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
