After two weeks ago he had already written the virtual Grand Prix of Spain to his name, there was no mate on Russell again today. The Brit started the race from second place, but after the start he quickly managed to get rid of pole-driven Pietro Fittipaldi from the outside.
With his good start, Russell had immediately laid the foundation for the victory. From that moment on, the Williams driver was in control and made no mistakes on 39 laps, so that he could drive to victory without any threats. At the finish, he was a whopping 39 seconds ahead of the rest of the field, once again underlining his dominance.
Gutierrez takes care of Leclerc
With his faultless performance, Russell managed to stay ahead of the chaos in the streets of Monaco. After all, there was fierce fighting for the consolation prizes. Mercedes driver Esteban Gutierrez eventually finished second. The Mexican had managed to deal with Charles Leclerc in the final phase, who had to settle for third place on his own soil.
Alexander Albon sent his Red Bull fourth across the finish line for Arthur Leclerc’s second Ferrari. The youngest of the Leclerc brothers was held up by Lando Norris midway through the race, ultimately leading to a collision with the Briton. Norris eventually finished seventh, behind the Haas by Pietro Fittipaldi.
