Formula 1: Perez spoils the Leclerc Festival

And again the Monaco curse struck Charles Leclerc. The Monegasse is only fourth at his home Grand Prix. “I have no words,” he said disappointedly over the pit radio.”
Red Bull driver Sergio Perez won ahead of Leclerc’s teammate Carlos Sainz and world champion Max Verstappen. Although his tires deteriorate a lot at the end, he keeps the pushing competition behind him. “I just couldn’t get by,” said Sainz annoyed. The Mexican is happy: “This is a great day for my country and for me.”

Leclerc, meanwhile, loses the race because the weather gods strike. Heavy rain flooded the race track before the start. The F1 stars are then sent off behind the safety car on rain tires. Then Ferrari made two tactical mistakes: First, the command post left Leclerc out for too long, then they ordered him to stop twice with Sainz, so that the World Cup runner-up had to wait.

Perez, on the other hand, wins because Red Bull is the first in the top group to call him on duty to switch to intermediates.

Mick Schumacher flies off spectacularly in the swimming pool chicane on lap 27 of the Monaco GP and causes a violent accident.

When the GP is interrupted after a serious accident by Mick Schumacher, the top four places are taken. The son of record world champion Michael Schumacher remains unharmed after losing the rear of his Haas in the swimming pool chicane, turning and crashing into the same spot that Daniel Ricciardo hit on Friday. As in Saudi Arabia, his car breaks apart.

Even before that, he had to come into the pits to change the front wing after touching Alexander Albon (Williams). “Physically, I’m okay,” he says. “But of course it’s very annoying. It was difficult conditions. Unfortunately I was a bit too far out and ended up in the wet. The cars are wider than last year, too wide – I misjudged that a bit.”
