Verstappen, like last season, when he was declared world champion, the Dutchman dominates the classification with an iron fist.
However, he was closely followed by Charles Leclerc, of Ferrari. and Sergio “Chico” Perez, fellow defending champion at Red Bull. Monaco has been on the podium four times, just like the Mexican, but has won more than this. They reached with a score of 116 and 110 points respectively.
Spaniard Carlos Sainz Jr., who shares a team with Leclerc, is fifth overall, although somewhat off the podium. Until the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, he climbed on the podium four times, although he was not in the lead. Lewis Hamilton, with Mercedes, is slightly behind him, but is 33 points behind. For his part, Fernando Alonso reached the thirteenth place with ten points in his account in his first season with the Alps.
The last precedent, the historic Circuit de Monaco in which they raced on May 29, was positive for Carlos Sainz, who finished second, only behind Mexican “Chico Perez” and ahead of the leader, Verstappen, and thus managed to cut some points with the most prominent area of the table. For Alonso, it was also a productive weekend. He managed to finish seventh and add six valuable points to his personal treasury.
