It’s another race week and once again to take a closer look at potential fantasy game changes this week in Monaco
We had a roller coaster start to the season but it finally looks like we have some stability at the Monaco GP. Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc appear to be the reliable duo at the top and the further this season progresses, it is becoming more of a two-horse race.
Lewis Hamilton’s performances really affected the fantasy teams. Hamilton has been a part of most of our fantasy teams and after underwhelming performances in Jeddah and Bahrain, he showed some promise by finishing fourth in Melbourne. However, he dropped out of the top 10 to finish 13th at Imola. 6th place in Miami and a P5 in Barcelona finally show positive signs of consistency?
Max Verstappen or Charles Leclerc – who should be the number 1 choice? Which manufacturer looks like the safest bet going forward – Ferrari, Mercedes or Red Bull? We’ve got the answers you’re looking for and we’re back after a break with your weekly dose of F1 Fantasy!
Both Verstappen and Leclerc are mandatory in his team. Kevin Magnussen started off as a great budget pick with the Haas driver following up his P5 with a P9 in Saudi Arabia. However, there seems to be a drop in form and you may have to look for alternative options like Esteban Ocon. George Russell has been consistent and is a reliable choice going forward. Red Bull has emerged as the safest bet when it comes to the single-builder seat and appears to be the option ahead of Ferrari and Mercedes.
What should be the strategy going forward?
You will receive three free replacements before the Grand Prize. Use them to bring in drivers you think will do well in Monaco. If you don’t have Leclerc yet, just put it on!
Verstappen or Leclerc are mandatory in your team and you can build your team around them. If this requires you to remove Lewis Hamilton, we suggest that you go ahead and do so.
Carlos Sainz, Sergio Perez or George Russell are potentially good choices as a cover for your marquee driver. For the Monaco GP specifically, Charles Leclerc could be a very popular choice, regardless of Verstappen’s form. The house favorite is our ‘driver to watch out for’ this weekend.
The most important part is – Remember to save and submit your teams before the deadline, which is Saturday night qualifying.
