The 2021 Formula 1 season heads to the French Riviera this weekend for the Monaco Grand Prix as Mercedes and Red Bull take their fight for the championship into the fifth race of the season.
Monaco is one of the most iconic circuits of the F1 calendar, and Sir Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen look set to continue their title battle on the winding street track of the Principality.
Hamilton took home his third victory of the season last time out at the Spanish Grand Prix, and Red Bull will be looking to hit back as the gap between the two drivers at the top of the drivers' championship stands at 14 points.
The battle in the midfield should also be fascinating, with a group of teams including McLaren, Ferrari and Alpine all closely matched and looking to contend for podiums.
