Max Verstappen wins wet Monaco F1 GP to stretch world championship lead

But what had opened with another tiresome procession on the streets of Monte Carlo delivered intense late drama as rain engulfed the principality. On lap 13 there was a scare for Alonso, who believed he had a puncture but was assured by his team that his tyres were fine, while Verstappen extended his lead to six seconds. Alonso may not have had a puncture but he was not happy with something as his pace dropped away and Verstappen opened an 11-second lead by lap 23. Red Bull kept Verstappen out, despite his worn rubber, to maintain track position on Alonso, who was also now into the lapped traffic. As the rain hit with real effect Red Bull had waited long enough and pitted Verstappen for inters a lap later.
