F1, GP Monaco - Perez wins in Monaco ahead of Sainz and Verstappen

Ferrari debacle at the Monaco Grand Prix: the Reds started from the first two positions and kept the lead for half the race, despite the chaotic start in the rain. But an incorrect strategic call threw everything to the winds, giving victory to the Red Bull rivals. Sergio Perez won the race ahead of Carlos Sainz and Max Verstappen. Only fourth is Charles Leclerc, visibly disappointed at the end of the event.

The Top 10. Mercedes was not even a distant relative of that seen in Barcelona, ​​but George Russell managed to take seventh in a row among the first and today crossed the line in fifth position, ahead of Lando Norris’s McLaren and the Alpine of Fernando Alonso. Only eighth was Lewis Hamilton, who found himself stuck behind the two-time Alpine champion at the end, but was unable to overtake him. Valtteri Bottas with Alfa Romeo and Sebastian Vettel with Aston Martin also leave Monte Carlo with some points in the game bag.

The words of the winner. Third career victory for Sergio Perez, the first on the prestigious Monte Carlo track. “This is a dream come true,” said the Mexican Red Bull driver. “For us it was tough, I had a lot of graining and I had to be careful not to make mistakes. Today is a beautiful day for me and for my country. Today I raced with Pedro Rodriguez’s helmet, he would be really proud of me today “.

Leclerc the great disappointed. “I have no words, we cannot do these things,” Leclerc told his track engineer via radio. The disappointment for having lost the race is really great, in light of a completely wrong strategy that led him from the first to the fourth final position. In the interview ring, Leclerc said: “It hurts me, we can’t afford to finish fourth after leading by 7 seconds. And what’s more, here at home, we lose a lot of points. We need to improve because today this race could have been ours. We clearly made a wrong decision before and added the double pit stop mistake as well. In short, there have been many mistakes. Now there is so much disappointment. I love this team, but today we made a mistake ”.

Bang for Schumacher. Bad accident for Mick Schumacher on lap 27 of the Monaco GP. The German suddenly lost control of the car at the exit of the swimming pool chicanes and crashed violently, with the rear of the car completely detached. The Haas race ended with a double retirement almost simultaneously: Magnussen had just stopped definitively in the pits, while Mick crashed, fortunately without any physical consequences.

The rankings. With today’s third place, Max Verstappen cemented his leadership in the Drivers’ World Championship with 125 points, with Charles Leclerc now chasing at 116. Today’s victory also brings back Sergio Perez, who is now third in the championship with just six. length from the Monegasque Ferrari. Red Bull Racing leads the constructors’ classification with 235 points, followed by Ferrari at 199. Mercedes third with 134 points.
