A third victory for Hamilton here would see him overtake Sebastian Vettel at the top of the championship standings.

However, struggles set in after lunch as the Brit complained over the radion of being unable to get heat into the tyres while F1 World Drivers' Championship leader Sebastian Vettel was the first man into the 1min12s, leading the field by almost half a second.

After finishing well off the pace in the afternoon, Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas said: "Practice two was hard and we struggled with the pace over one lap".

78 - Monaco is the shortest circuit now being used (3,337 kilometres), subsequently it is also the race with the most laps (78).

Jenson Button felt his return to a Formula 1 auto in practice for the Monaco Grand Prix was "natural", but admitted he hasn't missed driving since stepping away from the sport.

F1 chiefs are discussing the idea of holding the memorial before Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix.

Force India's Mexican driver Sergio Perez added: "I think the one we had before was big enough and if you hit it, it would send you to the wall. It's always a challenge - a huge challenge, for any driver - but a really exciting challenge, and has always been up there in my favourite races of the year".

Hamilton has shown he is a master of the psychological, playing on any vulnerability to gain an advantage on the racetrack, but Vettel has also shown he is a tough nut to crack.

Hamilton, Britain's triple world champion, last night issued a series of Instagram videos expressing his sadness at the terror attacks.

"I've been doing this for a long time now".

"This afternoon, for whatever reason, the tyres weren't working".

"Obviously this morning they looked strong, particularly Lewis, and then this afternoon it kinda looked like they put more fuel in the vehicle or something".

Another key factor to focus on is the tyres.

Valtteri Bottas is hoping that Mercedes' gap to Ferrari in Monaco is "not real" after the Brackley squad went in the wrong direction with changes between practices. As a result Pirelli have brought their three softest tyres, the yellow-marked soft, the red-marked supersoft and the purple-marked ultrasoft.

Making the best of the new 2017-spec cars, Vettel put in the fastest ever lap of the street circuit at one minute 12.720 seconds and was over four tenths clear of the second placed vehicle, Daniel Ricciardo's Red Bull.
