Max Verstappen with Red Bull triumphs in the fifth race of the season in Monte Carlo and takes the top of the drivers’ standings. In second place Carlos Sainz with Ferrari, first for this year for the Mexican.
Lando Norris with McLaren third, climbing to third place in the overall standings. Fantastic race for Sergio Perez with another Red Bull, thus returning the team to the top. Only seventh place for Lewis Hamilton
After the absence of Leclerc in the first place as a result of problems with the shift package, the race started without problems, with Verstappen holding the head and starting the detachment, even recording fast laps.

In the first boxing match, one of Botta’s tires could not be released and the Finn retreated. Perez also benefits from boxing, which in addition to setting a fast lap, climbs to fourth place, dropping Hamilton to seventh place.
The world champion, seeing that there was no chance of getting one more position, gets into the pits and records the fastest lap with the new tires. Anyway, the reversal comes: Leads Verstappen with 105 points, follows Hamilton with 101 and in third place climbs Norris with 56.
