2022 Monaco Grand Prix

In the Monaco Grand Prix the crucial question for drivers on a soaked but drying track was not just when to get rid of the wet weather tyres they all had to start on, but what to change to.

In the end the field was split roughly in half between those who gambled on intermediate tyres and those who hung on until the track was dry enough to jump directly to slicks.

Charles Leclerc said fitting intermediates was the first of two mistakes which cost him victory. But Sergio Perez used that very strategy to win the race.

What particularly hurt Leclerc was the time he lost after his first pit stop, behind a lapped Alexander Albon who was reluctant to get out of the way, and the further delay when he pitted again on the same lap as his team mate, and had to queue behind him.

For Carlos Sainz Jnr, that was the only tyre change he made all race. Valtteri Bottas and Daniel Ricciardo used the same strategy. Yuki Tsunoda, conversely, was the only driver to use all five types of tyre available in the race.

Eight drivers changed tyres during the mid-race stoppage due to Mick Schumacher’s crash. Among them were the two Red Bull drivers, who opted for mediums, but found their tyres faded towards the end of the race and came under pressure from the Ferrari drivers who stuck with their hard rubber.

Fernando Alonso also switched to mediums and went to extremes to protect them, lapping in the order of three seconds off the pace. He did this while ensuring Lewis Hamilton behind had no opportunity to overtake him, which he described as “extremely easy” due to the narrowness of the circuit.

That was also why the race saw next to no passes as usual. There were a few exceptions in the wet potion of the race, however, notably from Pierre Gasly.

The great Alonso go-slow also left Lando Norris ample time to pit and resume ahead of the Alpine, set the fastest lap and close onto George Russell’s tail by the time the shortened race ended after 64 of a scheduled 78 laps.

  1. Great stats*. (Did we always get this many stat categories – or Statagories – or was I just not paying attention)….. probably the latter.

    P.S. *obviously such stats are even ‘greater’ when it’s not Monaco.

  2. Just a quick observation without checking the how and the why.
    From lap 30 to lap 45, Daniel was slower than Latifi !! Weird.

    1. @webtel Zhou was slower than him for a large portion post-red.
      Latifi was surprisingly fast in this race, considering his general pace this season.

    2. I have an opinion

      The how and why is drivers at the very back of the field were in clear air after unlapping for the safety car restart after the red flag, while those on the lead lap behind Alonso were in a train.

  3. Where the hell do I find the final race results on this page? I slept through the last 20 laps and would like to know the final classification, but can’t find it for the life of me. Do I really have to resort to other rival outlets for this? Ridiculous. This page has really gone to crap over the years.

    1. Ok, now I feel silly. Found it. I must’ve been blind lol

      1. Facepalm…

  4. Based on the lap times of Max and Charles on the intermediates who both stopped on the same lap I think max made the differance on the inters and that extra lap on inters helped him to pass lec. But I guess that Albon also played a role as backmarker like Latiffi did on Sainz.

  5. McLaren’s decision to pit Norris onto inters not only cost him 5th place to Russell but also gave Perez a chance of victory. Perez’ strategy would not have worked if Norris had not pitted as he would have been stuck behind him just like Hamilton was behind Ocon. However the presence of Norris probably stopped Ferrari covering Perez immediately until it was too late. It was a gamble but a very clever bet with no downside for the team – at worst Perez risked coming 4th, a position Red Bull already occupied.

    It was definitely a very long one.
