  1. I doubt Perez could provide a WDC challenge until the end, but still surprising how close he’s managed to stay.

    1. Last week the team shouldn’t have asked him lto let Verstappen get past (and if he could’ve kept him behind in an open fight) then it would’ve been a RBR 1-2 in the WDC within a point.

      So that’s my ‘could have, would have, should have’ ;)

    2. Without retirements, the championship picture would be the following:

      Verstappen – 154 points
      Leclerc – 141 points
      Perez – 116 points

      So he has probably been fairly fortunate, as Verstappen retired from second twice, and Leclerc retired from the lead in Spain while he has one retirement from what should have been 4th in Bahrain. He did get unlucky with the safety car in Saudi, and although I don’t believe he would have won, that’s probably a 2nd that became 4th for Perez.

    3. Max DNF’s thats how, but he has been incredible this season.

    “Max Verstappen has increased his drivers’ championship lead over Charles Leclerc to nine points after his Monaco Grand Prix victory.” Eh, Perez won the race.

    1. I don’t see what’s wrong with the statement at all.

    2. Yeah and Max finished ahead of Leclerc dummy

      1. That’s what “victory” means in this case?

          @Emma, yeah I don’t know what those two are on about. Madening when people try to argue with “alternative facts.” I guess their going for the alternative defintion angle?

          Anyway the take away from this is that Checo would be a couple points from the championship lead had RB not intervened in Spain. He would be riding a huge momentum right now. And we know in sports momentum and rhythmn are key. Shame his team has no faith in him after all he’s done for them.

          1. @threepurplesectors
            Good chance Max would have got past Checo in Spain anyway without team orders. If they had run into each other like Vettel and Webber did a few years back then it would create a worse atmosphere within the team along with lots of points lost. Sainz will eventually get ahead of Leclerc at some point too and then Ferrari will have the same headache.
            I’m glad Perez won today, he got the better of Max in Quali & race so fully deserved it.

          2. Ah, also, G, the amount of points you lose from throwing away a red bull 1-2 like that can easily mean you lose the championship because of that, I don’t see why risking if they couldn’t trust the drivers to not crash.

        2. To be honest I think it’s a matter of misreading, at least I did, and didn’t notice it said victory till you pointed it out; now that I got the point, it’s kinda fun if verstappen’s 3rd place gets called a victory just cause he ended up in front of leclerc!

    3. Luckily this article is about the championship standings and not the race results.

    We have to wait and see further races but Red Bull is dominating now.

    1. I think this is a clear case of ferrari being ferrari, as in not getting the result their car was capable of, in this case due to strategy, can’t really fault the drivers this time, leclerc was dominating early on and made no mistakes and sainz finally had a proper race.

    Yes. Other teams have done massive upgrades this year. As per my inputs I dont know what exactly is going to happen this year. We have to see more tracks with this Ferrari car to know where we are going.
