Max Verstappen wins Monaco Grand Prix to extend World Championship lead after rain causes chaos and costs Fernando Alonso

Max Verstappen withstood a late downpour to win the Monaco Grand Prix in crushing style. Lewis Hamilton came from fifth on the grid to finish fourth, a place behind Esteban Ocon of Alpine, the Frenchman taking the third podium of his career. The race was a procession for the first hour or so before George Russell complained of rain at Turn 3 on lap 51 of 78. Verstappen was slithering about but held on to the track well enough before filing into the pits. Kevin Magnussen hit the wall as his Haas team stubbornly kept him out on dries when the track was like a bath. Russell was handed a five-second penalty for rejoining the track unsafely – putting himself in the path of Perez, who finished 16th, having stopped five times.
