Should Verstappen convert pole position into victory on the streets of Monaco, which hasn't been done since 2019, the Dutchman will have won more races than anybody else in Red Bull colours, surpassing four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel.
As long as he leads one lap of the 78, Verstappen will also go past 2000 laps led throughout his F1 career.
Perhaps even more in his favour is how good he is on clockwise circuits. Verstappen has won the last nine races on such a configuration, dating back to the French Grand Prix in 2022.
And to his delight, the next nine races after Monaco are all in that configuration.
