Unusually, the free practice sessions for Monaco are held on Thursday, meaning a day off mid-weekend on the Friday.

There's little suggestion of rain for the two practice sessions on Thursday, with the day expected to be dry and sunny.

The drivers can count on a bright day, but may struggle for tyre temperatures. Air temperatures of around 19 degrees celsius in the afternoon are expected.
