Max Verstappen strolls to Monaco GP win to continue F1 dominance as rain causes chaos and helps Hamilton finish fourth

Verstappen now has won four of the opening six races and has amassed a whopping 39-point lead over his Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez. The rain was coming and we didn’t know what was going on with the tyres. “It started to rain lap by lap a bit more and it was incredibly slippery. Verstappen made a clean start and managed to remain ahead of Alonso, who came close to hitting the barriers at turn one. Verstappen was noticeably agitated over the team’s radio. Meanwhile, Verstappen was still on slicks and was forced to reduce his lap time after coming so close to striking the wall at Portier. The rain continued to make things tricky while Verstappen eventually made it back to the pits for intermediate tyres. But Verstappen held his nerve and while Aston’s tyre mistake made it easier, he was able to come home in first place 27 seconds clear of Alonso.
