Charles Leclerc suffered a retirement when leading the Spanish Grand Prix, leading to Max Verstappen overhauling him in the championship heading into the Monaco Grand Prix.
Leading the race and looking like scoring a victory at Barcelona, it all turned sour for Charles Leclerc and Ferrari when his engine conked out. Carlos Sainz spin and recovery to fourth place didn’t help much as Red Bull scored another 1-2 to lead both the drivers and constructors championship. Ferrari will be looking to bounce back but Red Bull tend to go well in the tight confines of the race track in the principality of Monaco.
Barcelona was also notable for the improved performance of Mercedes, who look as if they’ve managed to tame their bouncing issues and could make this a three-horse race for the win this weekend. Best of the rest is beginning to look like a battle between Valtteri Bottas’ Alpha Romeo and McLaren’s Lando Norris with only a point separating them.
Grid position will be important as always at the Monaco Grand Prix, with most of the thrills likely to happen in qualifying before the strategic battle of the race. Here’s how to watch the Monaco F1 Grand Prix on TV and online.
