Lewis Hamilton can extend his lead over main rival Sebastian Vettel by winning the 2018 Formula One Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday.
Hamilton’s main focus may not be Vettel—it may be making up for a dismal showing on the Circuit de Monaco last year. He didn’t make it on to the podium in 2017, but Hamilton has won the past two races, setting the pace in both Azerbaijan and Spain.
By contrast, Vettel hasn’t won since the season’s second race in Bahrain. Meanwhile, Valtteri Bottas has driven well lately, only increasing Mercedes’ chances of adding another win.
While Hamilton has powered Mercedes through the past two races, the team hasn’t been without its issues. Among them has been matching the Ferrari vehicles for speed.
The Daily Telegraph‘s Luke Slater noted how Mercedes “have been off the raw pace of Ferrari in three of the first five races but the Scuderia have not converted this advantage into a lead in either of the championships.”
Mercedes’ commanding leads in both the drivers’ and constructor’s standings shows Hamilton and Bottas have been doing what it takes when it matters most during recent races.

Mercedes will try to hunt down their first win of the 2018 Formula 1 season on Sunday on the technical street circuit of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
The race in Baku will be held for only the third time and the second time as the official Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton, the defending world champion, has never finished on the podium.

The Baku city circuit is one of the most challenging on the F1 calendar due to the wide variety of sections the drivers face in a single lap. Technical, slow-speed corners are blended with long straights, which often provide the only good overtaking points on the narrow track.
The close proximity of the walls and lack of run-off area make for a punishing track, and any mistake can result in disaster. Max Verstappen found that out the hard way in practice:
Daniel Ricciardo was the winner in Baku last year after an incident-filled race. Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel had their infamous brake-check incident that resulted in issues for both and opened the door for the Australian.
Ricciardo showed Red Bull’s improved pace in practice on Friday, continuing the team’s solid progression early this season. While Ferrari impressed in Australia and Bahrain, the Italians did not have a great showing on Friday, with Vettel struggling in the second session.
Perhaps most surprising was Mercedes’ pace, which was significantly slower than that of Red Bull. The Silver Arrows―who have dominated the sport for years―are still without a win in 2018, and the early signs from Baku suggest their poor start could continue.

Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari will chase their third win of the 2018 Formula One season on Sunday, as the Chinese Grand Prix is the next stop on the calendar.
The Italian team faces a daunting challenge, however, as Mercedes have won the last four races held at the Shanghai International Circuit. Vettel himself hasn’t won in China since 2009.
Mercedes have stuttered in the start to their season, however, while Ferrari have soared. A win in China would be a massive statement from the Scuderia, even if the Silver Arrows remain favourites for now.
Vettel has enjoyed the perfect start to the 2018 season. In Australia, Hamilton had taken a stunning pole position and got away cleanly to lead in the early stages.
However, a glitch in the Mercedes software saw Vettel steal ahead of the Brit under the virtual safety car.
And the German added his second win of the year two weeks later in Bahrain when his main rival was hit by a five-place grid penalty from which he could only finish third.
But he has already hit back with two table-topping laps in the first practice sessions in Shanghai – can he do so again on Saturday morning? Here’s how to make sure you don’t miss a minute.
Mercedes have been the dominant force in Formula 1 for years, impressing with both their reliability and power. While other teams may have an edge in terms of aerodynamics―most notably Red Bull―there has been no beating the Silver Arrows’ pace and lack of errors, especially on fast tracks like China’s.
