Verstappen's incredible run ends but equals Red Bull record - Monaco GP stats and facts
GPFans Staff & Sundaram Ramaswami

Sergio Perez took victory in an enthralling Monaco Grand Prix to move to within 15 points of the championship lead.

The Mexican made the most of a Ferrari tactical error to leapfrog both Carlos Sainz and polesitter Charles Leclerc in what was a chaotic race in changeable conditions.

As ever, GPFans brings you the best stats and facts from the grand prix weekend!

Perez makes Mexican history

Perez's third F1 win promotes him above Pedro Rodriguez as the most successful Mexican driver in the sport, breaking a record that had stood for 52 years.

The winning margin between Perez and Sainz was just 1.154secs, the smallest gap between first and second at Monaco since 2012.

Verstappen's incredible run broken

Max Verstappen's third place secured Red Bull’s third double-podium in four races, but incredibly it was the first time in 25 podium finishes that the reigning champion didn't finish first or second, a run stretching back to Portugal 2020.

The Dutchman also equalled Sebastian Vettel’s tally of 65 podiums for the team.

Only Lewis Hamilton [134] and Michael Schumacher [116] have made more podium appearances with one team.

Red Bull engine roulette

Red Bull's last four wins at Monaco have all come using differently-badged engines: Renault, Tag Heuer, Honda and Red Bull Powertrains.

It was the team’s fourth win on the trot, the second time the mark has been reached by the Milton Keynes-based team in the hybrid era.

Sainz moves up unwanted record list

Sainz finished second at Monaco for the second successive season.

The Spaniard has moved to joint-fourth on the list of most podiums without an F1 win, alongside Romain Grosjean on 10 top-three finishes.

Only Nick Heidfeld [13], Stefan Johansson [12] and Chris Amon [11] had more podiums without winning a grand prix.

Ferrari always the Monaco bridesmaid, once the bride

A Ferrari driver has stood on the second step of the podium in each of the past five Monaco Grands Prix, dating back to 2017.

The first of these races ended in success for the Scuderia, however, with Vettel taking the honours ahead of Kimi Raikkonen.

Leclerc breaks home race duck

Leclerc was left disappointed by a strategic error that took away a home race victory, but he can take comfort in making it to the end of a race in Monaco for the first time, having failed to do so in both F1 and F2 up until Sunday's race.

The Monégasque has only converted four of his 14 pole positions into victories.

Russell streak continues as Mercedes Monaco struggles continue

George Russell’s streak of finishing in the top-five at every race this season remains intact after finishing fifth, behind the Red Bull and Ferrari battle.

Mercedes has, however, failed to finish in the top four at Monaco two years in a row.

McLaren break Red Bull-Ferrari stronghold

Lando Norris claimed the fastest lap of the race after a late pit stop, meaning McLaren is the first team apart from Red Bull and Ferrari to earn the bonus point this season.

Alonso returns to magnificent seven

Fernando Alonso secured his first top-seven finish since Qatar last year and scored points in Monaco for the first time since the 2016 season.

Gasly bleak run continues

Pierre Gasly failed to score in Monaco for the first time in his F1 career, extending his run of scoreless races to four.

This is his worst streak since 2018.

Tsunoda throws EVERYTHING at it

Yuki Tsunoda was the only driver on Sunday to use all the available tyre compounds for the grand prix.

These were the extreme wets, intermediates, hard, medium and soft tyres. You can't say he didn't try!

Monaco has shortest race in 25 years

With the event time-limited after two red flag periods, this year's Monaco Grand Prix was the shortest since 1997 at just 64 laps of 78 or 213km of 260km.

It was also the first race in 2022 to have a red flag interruption.

Is Monaco qualifying that important if it rains?

The last three F1 races in the Principality to be affected by rain were all won by the driver starting third [Hamilton - 2008, Hamilton - 2016, Perez - 2022].

The pole-winner had been a regular to the podium ceremony since 2004, however that hasn’t been the case in the last two races.

Charles Leclerc failed to start in 2021 while he finished P4 this year.

Three different drivers led the race [Leclerc, Sainz and Perez], a first since 2012.
