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.

Overtaking? Where?

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.

29 May 18:09

Sergio Perez claimed an impressive victory at the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix. The Red Bull driver won after starting the race in third place and made use of the opportunities presented to him to secure a first win at Formula 1's grandest race.

29 May 16:25

Alex Albon went off track at Turn 1. He rejoins the race.

29 May 16:24

Lap 10/77: Gasly is probably the quickest driver out on track at the moment, but Monaco's layout is not kind to overtaking.

29 May 16:18

Carlos Sainz sets the fastest lap - a 1:37.998 - but those on the Intermediate tyre could spring a surprise.

29 May 16:17

Lap 7/77: Leclec leads Sainz by 3.2 seconds. He also set the fastest lap at the moment.

29 May

But, Perez is on the board for victories in 2022, a result which feels right after the events of Spain. Next up the venue where Perez claimed his first Red Bull victory last season, that being Baku for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Make sure to join us then,

29 May

Well then, what a crazy race, a bit more rain near the end would have done nicely, but the rain dance worked. Not the best of looks for Race Control mind with that mess at the start.

29 May

P11 for Gasly, Ocon drops to P12, Ricciardo P13, Stroll P14, Latifi P15, Zhou P16 and Tsunoda P17. Albon, Schumacher and Magnussen fail to finish.

29 May

A fuming Leclerc is P4, Russell P5, Norris P6, Alonso P7, Hamilton P8, Bottas P9 and Vettel P10.

29 May

It is P2 in Monaco for Sainz for consecutive seasons. Verstappen completes the podium.

29 May

Sergio Perez wins the Monaco Grand Prix!

29 May

The clock runs out, this is the last lap.

29 May

Zhou and Latifi successfully lapped by the front four, one minute left for Perez.

29 May

Perez just needs to hold on for another five minutes and a lap.

29 May

Sainz almost went into the back of Perez there at the hairpin.

29 May

Sainz had a proper look there at Nouvelle chicane, but Perez places his Red Bull perfectly.

29 May

Perez is backing up the pack, Sainz, Verstappen and Leclerc are now right on the scene.

29 May

Under 10 minutes remain.

29 May

Alpine ask Ocon to "push up" now and try to wipe out that five-second penalty which he is carrying.

29 May

Zhou loses the rear of his Alfa big time trying to pass Tsunoda into Nouvelle chicane, he fortunately gets the C42 back under control and goes straight on. Tsunoda and Latifi ahead of him now. Norris has pitted for fresh mediums, he may as well with no th

29 May

Sainz misses the Nouvelle chicane, Verstappen suggests the Spaniard gained an advantage, but that did not look to be the case.

29 May

20 minutes to go.

29 May

Norris wants to push and close up on Russell, since there is a 25-second gap behind him to Alonso. McLaren say they wanted to save some tread in case it rains again, but give him permission to use up some of that tyre life.

29 May

Verstappen now is within DRS range of Sainz.

29 May

Alonso may need to pick up the pace a bit, otherwise, Ocon in P9 will be dropping out of the points with that five-second penalty.

29 May

So we now have 30 minutes remaining in this race.

29 May

Hamilton is losing a lot of time behind Alonso. With Alonso holding P7, Alpine are telling the Spaniard to manage his pace and keep his former team-mate behind.

29 May

Ferrari have switched those hard tyres on, Sainz has closed right in on leader Perez.

29 May

Ocon has a five-second penalty for causing a collision with Hamilton.

29 May

29 more laps are expected from here before the clock times out, Red Bull believe.

29 May

Racing resumes! Perez leads the way, but has a rather extreme lock-up at Mirabeau. That won't help those medium tyres.

29 May

Safety Car in this lap.

29 May

Onto Lap 32, the Safety Car leads them around again.

29 May

Russell is on the mediums too, Leclerc will have to be careful. No idea why this will not be a standing restart.

29 May

So the race has resumed, the lapped cars pass the Safety Car.

29 May

Brand new medium tyres for Verstappen. He will fancy attacking Sainz ahead with those.

29 May

Lapped cars will be able to overtake the Safety Car once the race has resumed.

29 May

The race resumes at 1715 with a rolling start.

29 May

So 58 minutes remain on the clock for this race, that will have been stopped while we are under red flag conditions.

29 May

Haas report that a water pressure loss was behind Magnussen's retirement.

29 May

"No more rain expected until the end of the race," Ferrari tell Leclerc. "Perfect," is the response. The race has now been red flagged to allow for the barrier to be repaired.

29 May

He lost control and slammed into the Techpro after a clip of the barrier, ripping off the rear of the Haas. Safety Car is out.

29 May

Magnussen causes some confusion for a moment shown out of the car, he has retired already, Schumacher is in the wall at the Swimming Pool section, but thankfully says over the radio that he is fine. His car is ripped in half!

29 May

That is a huge crash for Schumacher!

29 May

The last of the intermediate runners Stroll pits for slicks. Albon has a five-second penalty for leaving the track and gaining an advantage.

29 May

Russell cleared Norris through the pit stops and is now P5.

29 May

So Verstappen and Perez have been noted for potentially crossing the pit exit line.

29 May

Drama, Zhou and Schumacher nearly collide, that allows Sainz to close right up on Perez down the straight, but Sainz gets on the wet and somehow saves that Ferrari from slamming into the barriers.

29 May

Disaster, Leclerc is now down to P4.

29 May

Red Bull are double stacking, Perez goes on to the slicks and then Verstappen. Perez leads in Monaco from Sainz, Verstappen is ahead of Leclerc in P3.

29 May

It is an absolute shouting match on the Ferrari team radio, Leclerc is now behind Sainz.

29 May

The inter-runners have closed right in on Sainz, he pits now for hard dry tyres, Ferrari tell Leclerc to stay out but he pits anyway for slicks.

29 May

Ricciardo is on to the hard slick tyre now.

29 May

Schumacher had a brush with the barriers and has boxed for hard slick tyres. Hamilton is not happy on the radio, he thinks Ocon turned in on him. Mercedes tell him that other than maybe some endplate damage on the front wing, all else is fine.

29 May

Both come out behind Perez, he de facto leads the Monaco Grand Prix. Russell has been shown the black and white flag for track limits.

29 May

Leclerc and Verstappen pit for inters.

29 May

Hamilton and Ocon collide down at Sainte Devote, fortunately, no damage for either.

29 May

Ferrari had come out with the inters, but tell Sainz to abort that stop. Norris has pitted though for inters.

29 May

Albon and Schumacher have been noted, allegedly leaving the track and gaining an advantage.

29 May

And now in comes Perez from P3, he too has the inters fitted.

29 May

Mercedes are calling Hamilton in to the pits, it is the intermediate tyres.

29 May

There is now a clear dry line out there.

29 May

Sainz is planning on going straight from full wets to slicks.

29 May

Gasly alone now has doubled the overtaking tally from Monaco last year, he passes Ricciardo at the entry to the Swimming Pool section.

29 May

"It's definitely inters now," says Perez.

29 May

Now Gasly makes the pass, down the inside at Mirabeau.

29 May

Zhou goes straight on at the Nouvelle chicane, which means he stays ahead of Gasly, there must surely be some Race Control intervention after that.

29 May

Gasly is all over the back of Zhou's Alfa Romeo, but can't get the traction to attempt a pass. Albon though just went straight on at Sainte Devote, so that clears one of the cars.

29 May

"Plan B" McLaren tell Norris now that Russell has closed up to him, but Norris says he is at "100% pace" already.

29 May

Russell went straight on at the Nouvelle chicane, no positions lost.

29 May

Vettel and Tsunoda come in for inters, Gasly had just set the new fastest lap before Sainz snatched that back.

29 May

We have an overtake, seems Vettel had a moment down at Sainte Devote, that lets Ocon through into P9.

29 May

Schumacher has pitted too for inters.

29 May

Gasly and Latifi are on the inters, taking that gamble.

29 May

Leclerc is already loving these conditions, he has a two-second lead over Sainz.

29 May

A very near miss! Stroll nearly collides with Latifi in the pit box.

29 May

Away we go, Leclerc leads out of Turn 1.

29 May

Safety Car in this lap, we will have a rolling start, Latifi is in the pits for a front wing change and Stroll is getting a tyre change.

29 May

And we have Nicholas Latifi off! He has slid into the barriers at the hairpin. He says the car just didn't turn. He reversed out though and is back running. Lance Stroll has had a brush with the barriers too and has a puncture.

29 May

The green light is on and the cars follow the Safety Car out of the pit lane, we are back in action. All drivers on full wets.

29 May

The engines are starting up.

29 May

At 1605 the race will resume behind the Safety Car.

29 May

Right then, the 10-minute signal to get this race underway is here.

29 May

Still waiting for any kind of activity, Safety Cars and Formula 1 cars are great at clearing water you know!

29 May

So the weather is definitely looking more promising now, conditions are brightening up and the radar does indeed show that rain moving away from the Principality.

29 May

Bernd Maylander is ready and waiting in the Safety Car for the call to go out and check the track, but it is raining heavily again.

29 May

Still waiting for a further update, the rain has stopped.

29 May

So the rain is stopped for now once more.

29 May

"It's raining like crazy," Leclerc reports. We can confirm, it is, there is a river flowing out of the final turn.

29 May

Red flag.

29 May

The rain is coming down very heavy again.

29 May

So, the FIA say their decision to delay the start was because they were monitoring that approaching heavy downpour, and had safety concerns as no wet running had taken place this weekend. Seem to remember there have been past F1 races in the wet? May be g

29 May

So the formation lap is underway, the Safety Car leads them off the grid.

29 May

Full wet tyres are mandatory for the Safety Car start.

29 May

Okay...now it is definitely full wets, the heavy rain is here and bouncing down.

29 May

At 1516 we will have the formation lap behind the Safety Car.

29 May

This really is not full wet weather, it is intermediates all the way, it would not be long until the switch to slicks came if no more rain falls.

29 May

The full wets are being wheeled out, all cars need to be fitted with them now that it will be a Safety Car start, Hamilton is shaking his head inside the cockpit.

29 May

The track is damp, but to start this race behind the Safety Car is really quite a baffling call.

29 May

Several teams are reporting that some heavy rain is on its way.

29 May

There seems to be a fair bit of confusion down on the grid as to why the start has been delayed. The race will start behind the Safety Car.

29 May

So, the formation lap will start at 1509 local time, the teams have the opportunity to adjust their set-ups and move over to the intermediate tyres.

29 May

They have delayed the race start!

29 May

So, the rain seems to be easing again minutes before the start, but we now have a very wet track.

29 May

The tarmac is definitely wet, the drivers would be brave to start on slicks.

29 May

Umbrellas are going up, jackets on, it is raining in Monte Carlo folks!

29 May

The wet tyres are being brought out to the grid while the national anthem plays, nervy times! Also, make sure to join Racing Statistics for their Monaco Grand Prix live watchalong - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FV8gOdgD4xs.

29 May

Great to see Alain Prost on the grid, a bit lost for words when asked to give some advice for the current drivers ahead of the race, what a legend!

29 May

Looking further down the grid at drivers out of position, we have Daniel Ricciardo down in P14, while Pierre Gasly suffered Q1 elimination after running out of time to start a final flying lap, he launches from P17. Even Valtteri Bottas from P12 will feel

29 May

Reports of spits of rain down on the grid, but certainly nothing heavy has moved in yet.

29 May

Sebastian Vettel also pumped in a fantastic qualifying display to claim P9 on the grid in the Aston Martin. He is a two-time winner of this race, could he somehow make it three today?

29 May

McLaren and Mercedes though look set for a cracking battle, Mercedes' George Russell starting P6, with Fernando Alonso splitting the Silver Arrows, Lewis Hamilton starts P8.

29 May

McLaren's Lando Norris is in the best spot on the grid to take advantage of any dramas, he launches from P5, feeling much better now than he was back at the Spanish Grand Prix as he recovers from tonsillitis.

29 May

It looks like some exceptional circumstances are needed for a non-Ferrari or Red Bull winner here this afternoon, which could come courtesy of some rain. Forecasts suggest a chance of this becoming a wet race, but this is Monaco after all, all eyes to the

29 May

With Leclerc's Ferrari team-mate Carlos Sainz starting P2, the second row is occupied by Red Bull, Max Verstappen looking to make it four wins in succession from P4 on the grid.

29 May

So, can Leclerc end his Monaco curse this afternoon? Neither in Formula 2 nor Formula 1 has he seen the chequered flag at his home race.

29 May

Ferrari will be looking to convert their front-row lockout into a victory here this afternoon, Charles Leclerc set to lead the pack away from pole.

29 May

Hello all, welcome back to Monaco, it's race day! All times are local.

28 May

Zhou is furious with that red flag, Stroll was just screaming over the radio.

28 May

Disaster for Gasly, he is out in Q1! Williams' Albon and Latifi are eliminated too, alongside Stroll and Zhou.

28 May

Hamilton, Bottas and Gasly are among a group of drivers who did not make it to the line in time.

28 May

Albon heads the queue and sets off on his final attempt. Chequered flag is out now.

28 May

Leclerc wants none of this chaos as all the cars queue up in the pit lane, he is safe so will watch from the garage.

28 May

Right then, with just over two minutes to go, the track is green again. This is going to be busy!

28 May

Session will restart in three minutes, what a strange one that was! Tsunoda picked up a puncture so will need a tyre change.

28 May

Tsunoda is back in the pit lane, with limited damage, so we wait to see why the red flags were needed.

28 May

And just in time, session red flagged. Yuki Tsunoda says he is in the wall.

28 May

A cracking effort there from Russell who goes P3.

28 May

The times are tumbling here with everyone seemingly improving, four minutes remain.

28 May

Hamilton needed a much better lap to escape danger there and has done, he goes P6. Leclerc just found another three-tenths!

28 May

Verstappen takes over from Perez as the lead Red Bull so far in this session, he is P2, 0.054s down on Leclerc's benchmark.

28 May

But that 1:12.9 should ease any fears for Leclerc!

28 May

Now the times are getting serious, a 1:13.292 for Perez. Leclerc is not happy with his track position: "We are so out of sequence with the others, it is so dangerous like this."

28 May

Fernando Alonso in the Alpine pops up to P1. The track is evolving in these cooler conditions under the cloud cover.

28 May

Only P3 for Leclerc there, but that becomes P4 as Magnussen improves.

28 May

Verstappen takes P1 early with a 1:14.295, now it is over to Ferrari. Russell is complaining of "no grip whatsoever". He is P9 after his first attempt.

28 May

All 20 cars are out on the track.

28 May

Here we go, Q1 is underway. The slowest five drivers in this session will be eliminated from qualifying.

28 May

Q1 is now only a few minutes away. Also, make sure to join Racing Statistics for their Monaco Grand Prix qualifying watchalong - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_S4PVwJpO0.

28 May

The battle to escape Q1 will be fierce, some shock exits are very much possible. The likes of Williams, Aston Martin and Alfa Romeo look like being in that conversation, while Alpine's Esteban Ocon and McLaren's Daniel Ricciardo need to unlock more pace t

28 May

Mercedes have work to do if they are to be at the front of midfield come the end of qualifying. The bouncing this weekend is coming from the track itself and suspension, not porpoising, so neither George Russell nor Lewis Hamilton yet look fully comfortab

28 May

All signs point towards a Red Bull-Ferrari battle for pole, but the midfield behind is incredibly tight. AlphaTauri's Pierre Gasly headed it with a P5 finish in FP3, McLaren's Lando Norris having claimed that position in both Friday sessions. Can anyone e

28 May

Their respective team-mates have some work to do, Carlos Sainz with a few tenths to find, while Max Verstappen is yet to look truly comfortable in that Red Bull RB18 this weekend.

28 May

Friday practice belonged to Charles Leclerc and Ferrari, but earlier today Red Bull's Sergio Perez put himself right in the mix for pole after topping FP3.

28 May

Welcome back to Monaco everyone! We are 30 minutes away from arguably the most important qualifying session of the season! All times are local.

28 May

A superb effort from Vettel to make Q3 in that Aston Martin. Schumacher, Ricciardo, Magnussen, Bottas and Tsunoda are out. Leclerc tops FP2.

28 May

Schumacher will be out in Q2, he only manages P13 and does not have time for another lap.

28 May

And Tsunoda has now pushed Ricciardo out of the top 10, so he needs to find some extra pace.

28 May

Ricciardo did improve on the new softs, but only to P10, he is right on the brink of elimination.

28 May

Hamilton gets the Nouvelle chicane wrong and abandons that lap.

28 May

Leclerc missed the weighbridge, so Ferrari wheel him back into position.

28 May

Sainz has switched to new soft tyres now, Ricciardo will need to do the same if he is to make Q3.

28 May

Hamilton wanted a second cool-down lap, he is though P7 and just under a tenth ahead of Russell.

28 May

After those first runs, Schumacher, Ricciardo, Tsunoda, Bottas and Magnussen are the drivers in danger.

28 May

Hamilton is complaining of overheating rear tyres.

28 May

Flirting with the 1:11s in those first runs. Perez is on top early on a 1:12.059. The top three are covered by 0.033s.

28 May

Judging by that super-fast stride from Gasly back to the paddock, he is not a happy bunny. Qualifying rolls on now though with Q2.

28 May

So, we know overtaking is very, very difficult in Monaco, but make sure to tune in, there is a good chance of rain affecting the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix. Join us tomorrow for that.

28 May

Tsunoda is set to line-up P11, Bottas P12, Magnussen P13, Ricciardo P14, Schumacher P15, Albon P16, Gasly P17, Stroll P18, Latifi P19 and Zhou P20.

28 May

So, completing the top 10, Verstappen starts P4, Norris P5, Russell P6, Alonso P7, Hamilton P8, Vettel P9 and Ocon P10.

28 May

Sainz picked up a reprimand earlier in FP3 for impeding, another driving one means a 10-place grid drop, it will be interesting to see what the stewards think of him failing to lift off at the time he reached the crash scene.

28 May

So, it is a Ferrari one-two, Leclerc on pole, Sainz P2. P3 for Perez but he may need a gearbox change after that.

28 May

Perez went into the wall at Portier, Sainz did not see the yellow flags in time and hit the stricken Red Bull.

28 May

Another Q3-ending crash, and another Monaco Grand Prix pole position for Charles Leclerc.

28 May

Perez and Sainz have crashed! Qualifying is over!

28 May

Russell is up to P6, he should have another shot at catching Norris, but he needs three-tenths.

28 May

Verstappen can not improve on his latest attempt, Norris can though, an 1:11.8 takes him back up to P5, that even with a huge snap of understeer at Rascasse.

28 May

Make that P5 for Alonso now.

28 May

It is P5 for Norris as it stands, Hamilton needs a few hundredths to pip the McLaren driver.

28 May

Sainz, Perez and Verstappen all fail to get within two-tenths of that, provisional pole for Leclerc.

28 May

A 1:11.3 from Leclerc! Well.

28 May

Ferrari tell Sainz that there is no need for tyre prep, just push. He is wary of catching the pair of Mercs ahead though if he does that.

28 May

Q3 is underway! Who will claim that all-important pole position for the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix? Let's find out.

27 May

But it looks like Ferrari and Red Bull remain the quickest in the field, and McLaren look to have a bit more pace on the evidence of FP1. Join us again at 1700 local time [1600 UK time] as we guide you through FP2.

27 May

A disappointing session for Alpine as Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon go P13 and P16 respectively, while Valtteri Bottas was unable to get out of the garage for a meaningful lap.

27 May

Gasly, Ricciardo, Russell, Vettel and Hamilton round out the top 10 here in FP1.

27 May

The chequered flag is out and the final lap times are starting to come in. Leclerc leads Perez and Sainz, all within a tenth of each other, with Max Verstappen P4 and Lando Norris a big chunk behind in P5.

27 May

"I'm ******* losing my mind" is the latest message from Lewis Hamilton as the bouncing on his Mercedes is still showing itself. Might be a long night ahead for the Mercedes crew.

27 May

Into the final five minutes now, with Carlos Sainz having to back off after cutting the Nouvelle Chicane, after setting the fastest first sector of anyone.

27 May

Perez also goes skidding onto the escape road at Sainte Devote now. That braking zone is proving problematic for the uphill right-hander.

27 May

Sergio Perez now splits the Ferrari pair on a 1:14.570. Ferrari-Red Bull-Ferrari-Red Bull is your order in the top four.

27 May

A 1:14.531 puts Leclerc back to the top of the timesheets, before Carlos Sainz goes into P2, seven hundredths down on his Ferrari team-mate.

27 May

Kevin Magnussen also takes to the escape road at the first corner. The drivers are beginning to test the limits heading into the final 10 minutes of the session.

27 May

A hairy moment for Max Verstappen there, who had a massive lockup heading into Sainte Devote, but he avoids the wall and gets into the escape road, bringing out the yellow flags.

27 May

Elsewhere, both Red Bulls have dropped into the 1:14s, with Verstappen going P1 on a 1:14.712.

27 May

A nervy moment for Alex Albon there, whose Williams got a bit unsettled under braking for the Nouvelle Chicane, meaning he had to cut it.

27 May

A solid effort from Pierre Gasly there, who goes P2 on a 1:15.162.

27 May

Alfa Romeo confirmed to PlanetF1 that "We are investigating an issue which means we have to remove the PU and Box", so we won't be seeing Bottas in FP1.

27 May

It looks like that'll be that for Mick Schumacher in this session, with Valtteri Bottas unlikely to join him on track either.

27 May

Lance Stroll has complained of having no front grip and Sebastian Vettel's Aston Martin looks pretty bouncy and unstable on his onboard.

27 May

But Lando Norris now puts in a 1:15.301 to go top. He battled through illness in Spain and has barely slept all week, so he's in the wars but that's not hampering his speed.

27 May

Saying that, Hamilton then sets a purple final sector put himself P2, 0.172s behind Verstappen.

27 May

After a bit of a tweak, Hamilton is back on the radio to say "the bouncing's crazy" on his W13. More work to be done for sure.

27 May

We're back underway. Only a brief intermission there.

27 May

The session will restart imminently, with Max Verstappen at the top of the times with a 1:15.327.

27 May

Red flag. Mick Schumacher is getting wheeled into the pit lane by the marshals, but this shouldn't be a long delay.

27 May

Mick Schumacher reports a gearbox issue over the radio, and stops right on the edge of the pit lane out of Rascasse. Feel like we've seen that before...

27 May

Our first off of the weekend is for Charles Leclerc, who had to take the exit road at St. Devote to avoid clouting the wall. He spins himself around and rejoins the track, though.

27 May

That Mercedes does not look comfortable yet. Hamilton bounced his way into the second part of the Swimming Pool section, but had to cut the corner to wrestle the W13 back under control.

27 May

Most of the drivers have been steadily pounding round so far in the session, but we're yet to see Nicholas Latifi emerge and Valtteri Bottas is yet to set a representative time.

27 May

"There's an incredible amount of bouncing" is the message from Lewis Hamilton. Mercedes' porpoising issues may have reared their ugly head again for the moment. One to watch for throughout the weekend, methinks.

27 May

Leclerc hops back to the top with a 1:16.157, with the drivers gradually beginning to crank up the notch a bit. These wider cars make the circuit look even narrower than ever. Next to no margin for error here.

27 May

It's worth noting that a 1:10.346 was the pole time from Leclerc last year, so we can expect the times to slowly tumble over the course of the session as drivers gain confidence.

27 May

The initial flying laps see most drivers lap in the 1:20s, before Leclerc gets down into the 1:17s and Carlos Sainz puts in a 1:17.252 to go top.

27 May

George Russell isn't happy with how his Mercedes is. "Ride feels awful, very stiff vertically" is his verdict. Porpoising is thought to be a big worry throughout the grid this weekend.

27 May

Quite unsurprising to see the drivers tiptoe around to begin with, it's the ultimate example of having to build yourself up to full pelt over the weekend.

27 May

Green light! FP1 is underway in Monaco, and a few cars have already taken to the track for their installation laps.

27 May

Whatever you think about the race itself, the surroundings and history of Monaco is unlike anything else.

27 May

Charles Leclerc in particular will be looking for a slice of luck at his home race - or, at least, to finish it. He's yet to do so in Formula 1, and didn't even start last year after taking pole.

27 May

Good afternoon! Welcome to our live updates from FP1 at the Monaco Grand Prix. Seeing the new cars head around the Monte Carlo for the first time will be an interesting one, and we have an hour's running ahead of us shortly.

27 May

Welcome to Monaco, the venue for round seven of the 2022 F1 Championship. First up we have FP1 coming your way from 1400 local time.

27 May

So, Red Bull have it all to do tomorrow. The weather is set to remain fair, so Verstappen has four-tenths to find if he is to deny title rival Leclerc pole position, arguably the most important pole of the season. FP3 is a crucial session then for Red Bul

27 May

Magnussen is P11, Hamilton P12, Bottas P13, Albon P14, Zhou P15, Stroll P16, Schumacher P17, Ocon P18, Latifi P19 and Ricciardo P20.

27 May

Perez is the lead Red Bull once more, Verstappen finishing P4 and four-tenths down on Leclerc. It is P5 for Norris, Russell P6, Gasly P7, Alonso P8, Vettel P9 and Tsunoda P10.

27 May

And that is session over, Leclerc is on top once more, with Sainz making it a Ferrari one-two. Friday in Monaco certainly belongs to Ferrari, the gap is 0.379s back to Red Bull!

27 May

Ferrari has sent Leclerc out again so he can do a practice start when the session ends, but he is on the hard tyre, interesting.

27 May

"Power unit feels poor at the moment," says Russell. Mercedes will not be happy to hear that. Stroll has now taken to the escape route at Sainte Devote.

27 May

Norris went straight on at Sainte Devote, he spins the McLaren around and rejoins once the coast is clear.

27 May

Leclerc is not finished for the day just yet, he is back out there on the soft tyre.

27 May

Only Sainz is out there for Ferrari, Leclerc is now getting out of his F1-75.

27 May

Tsunoda and Magnussen will be investigated after the session over alleged impeding, the stewards state. The incident happened down at the Nouvelle chicane.

27 May

It is time for some high-fuel running now.

27 May

Leclerc looked on to go even faster there, but Latifi's saunter back into the pit lane means Leclerc has to abort.

27 May

Sainz reduces the deficit to his team-mate, now he trails Leclerc by just over two-tenths. Russell has clipped the wall and has been called back to the pits.

27 May

Hamilton goes too deep down at Mirabeau, he waits for a gap to reverse out. Norris reports that he has given the barrier a hit at Turn 1.

27 May

A 1:12.7 for Leclerc, taking him three-tenths clear of Verstappen. Even Sainz can't get within three-tenths of that time, impressive.

27 May

Verstappen moves into P1, but Leclerc is on a good lap.

27 May

A purple Sector 3 helps Leclerc up to P1 on the soft rubber.

27 May

Hamilton manages only P6 on that first push lap after switching to the soft tyre, it is P3 for Russell. Perez meanwhile has lost the left mirror on his Red Bull.

27 May

"There is still debris on the braking line," Nicholas Latifi complains, Race Control must have been confident that all the main pieces were gone since they restarted the session.

27 May

The track is green again, 37 minutes to go in FP2.

27 May

Ricciardo is back at the McLaren garage now, explaining what happened out there.

27 May

McLaren: "Daniel, is the car okay?" "Erm, I'm okay," Ricciardo responds. Priorities and all that. The rear of the MCL36 stepped away through the chicane, leading to a hefty whack of the barrier and trip into the Tecpro.

27 May

Red flag! Ricciardo is in the barriers at the swimming pool section.

27 May

Somehow, no idea how, Sebastian Vettel has missed the wall by a fraction after losing the back end of his Aston Martin, he rescues it and continues.

27 May

"I have a big flat spot left front," Hamilton reports. There were plenty of lock-ups going on in FP1.

27 May

Yuki Tsunoda says he "can't drive" such is the severity of the vibrations in his AlphaTauri. Alfa Romeo have completed their work on Bottas' C42, so he should be out there soon for vital track time.

27 May

Leclerc and Carlos Sainz are running the hard tyre, so a slightly different approach from Ferrari here early in FP2.

27 May

Leclerc completed his lap on the mediums though, a 1:15.7.

27 May

Verstappen was on a push lap with the medium C4 tyre, but coming across a gaggle of slow-moving cars at La Rascasse, he gives up on that one.

27 May

There's the green light, FP2 begins.

27 May

Just a few minutes to go now until FP2 begins. Also, make sure to join Racing Statistics for their live Monaco Grand Prix FP2 watchalong - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIModajEi4U.

27 May

And down at the bottom of the timings, FP1 suggested that Haas, Williams and Alpine are in need of improvement here in Monaco. Mick Schumacher stopped early in FP1 due to a gearbox problem, the gearbox and MGU-K having now been replaced on that Haas VF-22

27 May

Mercedes have work to do if they are to follow up on their upturn in form in Spain. The W13 was not offering the smoothest of rides to Lewis Hamilton and George Russell, the latter seven-tenths off the pace as the highest-finishing Mercedes driver in FP1.

27 May

Behind that battle it was McLaren at the head of the midfield, Lando Norris albeit half a second off the pace. McLaren were pole contenders here in Monaco last season, so do they have the pace to unlock in that MCL36 to challenge again?

27 May

Red Bull though look to once again be very much in the mix, Sergio Perez trailing Leclerc by only 0.039s come the end of FP1. The all Ferrari-Red Bull top four was covered by less than two-tenths.

27 May

After the heartbreak of Spain, Ferrari's Charles Leclerc was right back on it for FP1 in Monaco, starting the race weekend at his home event on top.

27 May

Welcome back to Monaco everyone! FP2 is only 30 minutes away. All times are local.
