Get the latest insights ahead of Round 6 of Pit Wall Predictions, presented by Gulf

With the last two races in Baku and Miami being uncharacteristically quiet, many players in Pit Wall Predictions, presented by Gulf - including ‘The Strategist’ - have struggled to score highly.
With a European double header on the horizon though, that could be set to change. Our secretive predictions guru, who currently sits in P76 with 85 points, is eyeing this up as a chance to make up ground in the rankings.

Q1: On which lap will Alex make his first stop?

Lap 11-20. Alex made his first stop in wet conditions on lap 18 in the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix, however in drier conditions during 2021 the first pit stop was made much later on lap 29, so there’s a huge contrast.
The weather forecast suggests we have a chance of rain on Sunday, so I’m backing Alex to follow the same trend as last year.

Q2: On which lap will Logan make his first stop?

Lap 11-20. Likewise, with Logan, I think it’s fair to suggest both drivers will pit around the same window if the conditions are tricky.

Q3: How many full Safety Car periods will there be?

Two. The chance of rain + Monaco = mayhem. There were two Safety Car periods in 2022 and I feel that could be similar this year.

Q4: Which Williams Racing driver will pit first?

Logan. This one really is a 50/50.
Alex has pitted first three times out of five, but I feel that Logan will be the first into the box in Monaco, with changing conditions and a high safety car chance meaning there will be plenty of opportunities to trial different strategies with our young American.

Q5: What will Alex’s longest stint on the same set of tyres be?

31+ laps. As Monaco is typically a one-stop race over 71 laps, there’s a high chance we’ll see both drivers go long on a set of tyres.

Q6: What will Logan’s longest stint on the same set of tyres be?

31+ laps. Similar to the above, unless Safety Car windows present a better opportunity for our duo, it’s likely we’ll see long stints on the tyres.

Q7: Which tyre will Alex end his race on?

Hard tyres. This one will ultimately come down to the weather. The forecast suggests showers will come at the start of the race, meaning the track could dry out enough to bolt on some slick tyres.
With that in mind, I’ve predicted Alex will finish on the hard tyres.

Q8: Which tyre will Logan end his race on?

Intermediate or wet tyres. Just in case the rain does fall in Monaco, I’m splitting my strategy to cover the possibility that we may run wet weather tyres throughout the Grand Prix.
You’ve heard from The Strategist, now it’s time to make your decisions below. You have until the lights go out on Sunday to make any changes, good luck!
