Monaco’s drivers have won their second Grand Prix of the season in Melbourne, ahead of Sergio Perez (Red Bull) and George Russell (Mercedes).
2 wins in 3 races. Even in his wildest dreams, Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) couldn’t imagine a better start to the season. After two nightmare seasons, Monaco was humbly hoping to be there with the leaders by the end of the year and win some Grand Prix.
It took him only three races to win two, bringing his career to a total of four races. A breathtaking start of the season means he is at the top of the World Championship leaderboards with a comfortable margin (71 points against Russell’s 37, Hamilton and Verstappen’s only 28 and 25).
Max Verstappen retires again
Starting from pole position at the Australian Grand Prix and after a two-year absence from the Covid-19 pandemic, Charles Leclerc backed up his excellent qualifying session by leading the race from start to finish. Max Verstappen always stood at Monaco’s tail, but Red Bull’s driver retired towards the end of the race due to mechanical problems, making it his second time this season.

“This was my first victory and everything was in control from start to finish,” Monaco said after the race. “This performance wouldn’t have been possible without a reliable car. The race management was solid and the tires were holding up to the end. I’m happy.” The next date in the driving diary is April 24th, this is Imola.
