Grand Prix of Monaco

  • Sergio Perez won the Grand Prix in Monaco.
  • The future of racing is in doubt as cars overtaken the narrow track. But thanks to the rain, which delayed the start of the race, we had consistently strong races and even some overtaking maneuvers.
  • Ferrari started 1-2, with Monaco compatriot Charles Leclerc in pole position, but a failed strategy set the stage for Perez to win with championship leader Max Verstappen third. Leclerc slipped to fourth behind teammate Carlos Sainz (P2) and rivals in Red Bull.
  • We’ve collected the best photos from the wild race at the Monaco Grand Prix, where brilliance and magic are always on display.
