Who's going to rule around the harbour?

With the most prestigious race of the F1 year coming up around the streets of Monaco, there is normally a favourite for one of the most prized trophies in motorsport.  In F1 2012 though, you'd be a fool to predict a winner.

It's been an impossibly unpredictable year so far.  McLaren, Ferrari, Mercedes, Red Bull and most recently Williams have been on the top step of the podium in the five races so far.  Both Sauber and Lotus have also come close to fact, had it not been for a slight mistake, Sergio Perez would have won for Sauber in Malaysia.  If Sauber and Lotus do win a race in 2012, that would make seven teams winning a race, which must be a record.
The team that has been underperforming this year in my view has been Force India, who were a big tip for me this year after a fantastic season in 2011.  But I'd never rule them out with a strong driver line-up.  Torro Rosso have shown pace this year too with two exciting drivers.
Monaco can be unpredictable anyway and is unlike any race on the calendar, so it's very much anyone’s guess.  I won't be putting a bet on, especially this year! 
A Senna victory at Monaco sounds right though, doesn't it?!
