Verstappen Controls Monaco Grand Prix

Not even rain late in the race could slow Oracle Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen’s bid for his first Monaco Grand Prix triumph. Starting from the pole, Verstappen quickly stretched his gap to second-starting Fernando Alonso in the early going, with Verstappen going for the medium compound tire versus Alonso’s hard tire at the start. After making contact with the wall, Verstappen pit immediately to replace his medium tires for intermediates. Racing around the 2.074-mile circuit on Circuit de Monaco, second-place running Alonso pit early with only a portion of the race track wet, forcing the Aston Martin driver to make an extra stop for intermediate tires.
