Ten of the best pictures which tell the story of the 2015 Monaco Grand Prix weekend.
Max and Jos Verstappen
Max Verstappen and father Jos aboard an appropriately-named boat. The younger Verstappen grabbed attention twice during the Monaco Grand Prix weekend: by going second fastest in his first ever session on Monte-Carlo’s streets, and by crashing out of the race after colliding with Romain Grosjean.
Rain fell during second practice, confining the drivers to the pits for much of the session. By the time they ventured out even Monaco’s iconic tunnel was well doused.
Grosjean kicks up sparks on his approach to Sainte Devote.
Roberto Merhi exits the tunnel. Monaco was the first time this year he’d finished in front of his team mate.
The Red Bull of Daniil Kvyat glistens in the Monaco sunshine.
Over 600 marshals were appointed to ensure the safe running of the Monaco Grand Prix.
A strong performance by Sergio Perez saw him qualify and finish seventh, with only the faster cars of Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull ahead of him.
For the first time this year Pastor Maldonado out-qualified his team mate, but a brake problem put him out early on. Verstappen, behind him, made contact with Maldonado’s Lotus before his even more spectacular collision with the team’s other car.
Ferrari hasn’t won at Monaco in 14 years, but Sebastian Vettel’s second place was warmly received.
Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton
The circumstances in which Lewis Hamilton lost the win made for a slightly awkward podium ceremony but the two Mercedes drivers managed a courteous handshake.
