Who is on a streak in Monaco – and who should I buy?

When making transfers for the Monaco Grand Prix, it’s important to bear in mind that streaks will give you extra points. If you need a reminder of how streaks work, they’re bonus points given to a driver who achieves five consecutive top 10 race finishes or five consecutive top 10 race qualifications.

FORM GUIDE: Will Monaco give us another Hamilton vs Verstappen classic – and can Leclerc score at home?

Currently set to cash in a double race and qualifying streak ahead of Monaco are Lewis Hamilton ($33.3m), Charles Leclerc ($18.1m), Max Verstappen ($25.4m), and Lando Norris ($13.9m).

Daniel Ricciardo ($16.2m) is on the verge of a race streak (10 extra points), while Valtteri Bottas ($23.2m) can achieve a qualifying streak (five extra points). As for constructors, Red Bull and Mercedes are the teams on streaks ahead of the Monaco GP.
