Hakkinen explains why Mercedes run will end in Monaco
Mika Hakkinen has raised hopes that Mercedes' march to seemingly unchecked title dominance in 2019 will not continue at the Monaco Grand Prix. The Silver Arrows have started 2019 with five straight one-two results, but Hakkinen says Monte Carlo will be a time for change.
Mercedes are 96 points clear of Ferrari in the constructors' standings after their stunning start to the campaign.
However, the Silver Arrows have not won in Monte Carlo since 2016 and the street circuit has not typically favoured their car design – although their performance in sector three in Spain last time out suggested that could be set to change.
