Damon Hill believes that Red Bull Racing could be the surprise package at this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix. Speaking to Sky Sports News ahead of on track action getting underway tomorrow the 1996 world champion said he believes that Daniel Ricciardo will be strong following the Australian's podium finish at the Spanish Grand Prix two weeks ago.

Hill also believes that world champion Sebastian Vettel can not be discounted this weekend after making his way through the field from 15th place on the grid to finish the race in 4th place just behind his team mate Daniel Ricciardo.

Hill also thinks that Lewis Hamilton, who has won the last four Grand Prix in a row could face an extremely stiff challenge from team mate Nico Rosberg this weekend as the German completely dominated the Grand Prix. He took pole position on the Saturday and went on to win the race by 3.8s from world champion Sebastian Vettel.

Hill never won in Monaco however he claimed two podium finishes during his time with the Williams team.
