Raikkonen to finish in the money

This will be Raikkonen's 17th Monaco Grand Prix of a career so varied that he has finished in every points-paying position apart from fifth and seventh around these famous streets. He won't be repeating his 2005 win or the pair of runner-up spots he took as a fresh-faced championship challenger for McLaren in 2003 and a trusted Ferrari veteran in 2017. But having scored points in each of the first four races of 2019, he can at least guide his Alfa Romeo to a 12th career top-10 finish in the Principality at triple-your-money odds.

Podium beckons for Perez

Perez might not yet be rivalling Raikkonen in the F1 stalwart stakes but the Mexican has eight events at Monte Carlo under his belt and has long been considered one of the street circuit's most potent aces. He took a podium finish here for Force India in 2016 and will be aiming to excel as the undisputed leader for that team's reincarnation, Racing Point, in this year's race. Perez has scored points already this year in Bahrain, China and Azerbaijan, the latter with a stunning drive to sixth place, and looks good value at 5/2 to deliver a decent haul of points once again at this iconic venue.
