Dark clouds are hanging above the Monte Carlo streets with not long to go until qualifying gets underway.

Some weather reports have predicted the possibility of showers, and the drivers did have to contend with a brief shower in the second practice session on Thursday.

This uncertainty over the weather is an extra headache the teams simply don’t need, as the parc ferme rules stipulated under the current regulations mean that setup changes cannot be performed between qualifying and the race if the conditions drastically change.

"You have got to have a bit of a crystal ball," added Red Bull’s Christian Horner, "because the only variable you’ve got for the race is your front wing. I’m sure that basically the weather conditions on Saturday will principally dictate what setups people are going to end up on Sunday with.”

This might make things even more interesting!
