Sergio Perez claims impressive victory in drama-filled Monaco Grand Prix
Sergio Perez registered the third win of his Formula 1 career after winning an eventful Monaco Grand Prix. The Red Bull driver started the race in third place behind the Ferraris of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz, but benefitted from a series of events to lead the race after the second red flag.
The race was initially delayed for an hour due to heavy rain, but got under way behind the safety car when it was safe to do so. Leclerc led from Sainz until the first round of pit stops, with the two Ferrari drivers looking in prime position to register another 1-2 finish in the 2022 season.
But with 30 of 77 laps completed, Mick Schumacher lost control of his Haas, making hard contact with the barriers at the swimming pool section. Though he was okay, the accident brought out the safety car and the red flags. While Red Bull got their strategy calls right before and after Schumacher's accident, it was confusion at Ferrari, with Leclerc the big loser when the race resumed.
The home hero went from first to fourth in seconds, and the team deprived him of a first victory in front of his adoring fans.
As has become customary around Monaco, overtaking opportunities are not easily accessible. As long as you keep your (car's) nose clean and stay out of trouble, it's more than likely that you'll finish ahead of your nearest opponent. This is exactly what Perez managed to do once he took control of the race.
The Mexican managed the gap to Sainz behind him and never looked threatened - even after Sainz picked up the pace.
Traffic further aided the Red Bull man's bid for a maiden Monaco victory. Fernando Alonso (Alpine, seventh) led a train of cars, which halted Sainz's charge and saw the gap increase again between the top-two finishers.
Regarding the championship battle, Verstappen extended his points advantage over Leclerc to eleven: 125 points vs 116. Perez solidified his third place in the championship and is now on 110 points.
