Ten of the best pictures which tell the story of the 2019 Monaco Grand Prix weekend.
Sebastian Vettel produced a replica Niki Lauda helmet for the race weekend; Lewis Hamilton had one in time for the race.
Seventh was a result to be proud of for Daniil Kvyat in the Toro Rosso, though he was frustrated at being beaten to sixth by former team mate Carlos Sainz Jnr.
Vettel’s Saturday started badly. It was worse for his team mate Charles Leclerc, who was eliminated in q1 following an error by the team.
There are few races where fans can snap shots like this.
Hamilton ‘did a Helio’ after beating Valtteri Bottas to pole position.
While Hamilton kept his lead at the start, Leclerc took to the run-off to avoid hitting Romain Grosjean.
Leclerc got past Lando Norris and Grosjean’s Haas, but his race went awry when he spun trying to pass Nico Hulkenberg.
Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen
Max Verstappen was on course for second when Red Bull released him from the pits fractionally ahead of Bottas. Unfortunately he squeezed Bottas too much and got a penalty. Vettel, behind, was the beneficiary, taking second.
An exclusive line up of motoring machinery even by the standards of Monaco.
Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas
Bumped to third through no fault of his own, Bottas’s expression said it all.
