The most boring, so called race, on the F1 calendar. Can't wait for the weekend to be over and look forward to Canadian GP!

My money is on Red Bull. Anything else would be a surprise.
Would be awesome to see a McLaren on podium. Yeah, too much to ask for. But what the heck!

Mercedes is dominating "turning" circuits, so it will be Mercedes.

Mercedes have admitted they are "bloody worried" about their anticipated competitiveness against Red Bull and Ferrari in this weekend's Monaco GP.

Damage limitation this weekend, if they could take 4th/5th I think they'd be happy

If they have taken a step forward in their understanding of the tires they could just as well take pole and the win.
So far this season is just like the early part of 2012, the team that best understands the tires and can properly apply that knowledge has an advantage.

I think they will be happy to see Red Bull dominate, but saying that, last year was a similar story and Bottas was only 0.002 behind Vettel in qualifying.

May be he is saying, Mercedes were class of the field in qualifying last year and hence they were closer by 0.002 and because this year, they aren't the fastest in qualifying, they might be quite far behind. Theoretically, it might be correct.

The only glimmer of hope for Mercedes is, they have moved to the opposite spectrum of tyre issues, where they are now having issues with warming up the tyres, Hypersoft could be a saving grace as it is the softest in the range and should heat up faster too. If this is true, then they should feel OK.

It's going to be a crash fest at least one safety car every 15 laps.
