For there to be a title race, we probably need a Charles Leclerc win here, to repeat his win in the Austrian GP last time out. Despite that, Max Verstappen still has a 38-point advantage over the Monegasque driver in second place and 57 points on Sergio Pérez, and is sat second on the grid today at Paul Ricard. Leclerc and Verstappen, with due deference to George Russell should Mercedes sort themselves out, looks like the rivalry of the future. The issue all season has been Ferrari may well be quicker over a single lap but do not have the reliability and pit-lane nous of Red Bull, who themselves have not been completely watertight. Still, Leclerc driving like a demon conjures memories of Ferrari at their best. Verstappen has already had it harder than last year here, when he was on pole, won the race and set the fastest lap. Now, can Leclerc make his title defence harder?

The lights go out at 2pm, join me.
