‘I have been having bad luck all year’: Lewis Hamilton admits he needs rain to fuel his hopes of moving up the grid at the Monaco Grand Prix… but fears he will be ‘driving around in eighth’ if the weather stays dry on race day

Lewis Hamilton said only a wet race could spare him from more misery at Sunday’s Monaco Grand Prix. As home favourite Charles Leclerc romped to his third pole in as many races, Hamilton slumped to eighth, two places behind Mercedes team-mate George Russell. ‘I am not doing any dancing but I do want it to rain so I am not just driving around in the dry in eighth,’ said Hamilton. Hamilton was on a speedier lap at the time, but it is unlikely he would have had enough in the tank to gazump Russell, who qualified four tenths faster than his more illustrious team-mate.
