In a remarkable turnaround for Red Bull, the latest Adrian Newey-conceived single seater looks genuinely outpaced on the Principality's streets by Lotus, Ferrari, McLaren, Williams, Sauber, Mercedes and possibly others.

"The top ten is possible, I think," German Vettel is quoted by Sport1.

But his teammate Mark Webber warned: "That could be pretty difficult."

It is therefore a remarkable turnaround to consider that back to back constructors' champions Red Bull could be the ones hoping a bad weather forecast turns out right.

Rain in Monaco could shake up the qualifying and race order.

"There is a forecast of rain for Saturday afternoon," agreed Pirelli engineer Max Damiani, according to Brazil's O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper.
