Charles Leclerc ended his Monaco curse by winning with a comfortable margin at his home race. After near-misses in 2021 and 2022, when he started on pole, Leclerc kept McLaren’s Oscar Piastri at bay to claim a first victory on home soil and reduce the championship gap to Max Verstappen.

Leclerc’s Ferrari teammate Carlos Sainz finished third with Lando Norris fourth. Mercedes’ George Russell crossed the line in fifth ahead of Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton took seventh.

The race had started in explosive fashion when Sergio Perez hit the barrier on the hill up from Sainte Devote. The Red Bull driver was clipped by Kevin Magnussen and which resulted in a three car crash.

The Mexican was sent into the wall and lost both front wings and both tyres. The trio all walked away unscathed.

Charles Leclerc finally realises Monaco destiny after massive Sergio Perez crash

Under the blazing Mediterranean sunshine and crisp blue skies on this most prestigious of racing Sundays, this famed principality’s prodigal son finally realised his day of days. Charles Leclerc’s procession started long before the chequered flag; in fact, from lap one’s crash chaos and red flag, this grand prix victory could hardly have been simpler. No pit-stops. No incidents. No Ferrari meltdown.

The curse is well and truly over.

Of course, by the curse, we mean that Leclerc – the Monegasque star who has never claimed a podium at his home race, let alone a win – had been here before. Pole positions in 2021 and 2022 were butchered by a drive shaft issue and strategy blunder but 2024 felt like his year from practice on Friday. Armed with the quickest car, Leclerc has been rapid all weekend and his victory felt somewhat pencilled in after topping qualifying on Saturday.

Johnny Herbert: ‘Monaco Grand Prix gives you the biggest sensation on Earth!’

Johnny Herbert insists the feeling of driving around the Monaco street circuit is the “biggest sensation on Earth” ahead of Sunday’s grand prix.

Former British driver Herbert competed in Formula 1 from 1989-2000, most famously winning his home race at Silverstone in 1995, before going on to become a well-known face to viewers of Sky’s F1 coverage in the UK.

Yet before his rookie year, Herbert explains that his first experience of driving around the famous twists and turns of the principality actually came in Formula 3000, in 1988. It was then that he first realised the “immense challenge” of one of motorsport’s most famous tracks.

F1 legend Nigel Mansell on famous Ayrton Senna battle in Monaco: ‘I should’ve hit him!’

They say it’s the ones that got away which cause the most pain. Linger in the mind, like a pox on your skin. Nigel Mansell, with his swashbuckling driving style, unshakeable British charisma and iconic moustache, conquered many hills in Formula 1. One world championship. Two years racing for Ferrari. And four victories at the British Grand Prix.

Never a win at Monaco, however.

It was 32 years ago when he came closest, in the most despairing of defeats snatched from the jaws of victory. Mansell had claimed five consecutive race victories heading into the iconic principality, in a Williams car which he would steer relentlessly towards his only world title.

Mbappe’s security frustrate Martin Brundle on Monaco Grand Prix grid walk

Kylian Mbappe’s security appeared to frustrate Martin Brundle on his Monaco Grand Prix grid walk on Sunday, 26 May, as they tried to keep him away from the football player.

The motorsports legend turned Sky Sports broadcaster was embarking on one of his famous walks when he spotted the Paris Saint-Germain player, who did not appear to be keen to chat.

Brundle persisted with questions as the French star continued walking with his staff, who tried to stop the correspondent from talking to him.

“It’s alright mate I’m in charge around here,” Brundle said.

Sergio Perez’s Red Bull car in tatters after massive crash at start of Monaco Grand Prix

Sergio Perez crashed out of the Monaco Grand Prix after a huge shunt at the start of the race on Sunday.

The Red Bull driver, starting 16th on the grid, was squeezed by Haas’ Kevin Magnussen going up the famous Monte-Carlo hill following turn one.

But there wasn’t space for both cars and, with Magnussen clipping Perez’s wheel, the Red Bull spun and smashed into the wall.

Monaco Grand Prix - Sergio Perez on his crash

“It’s a little bit shaky overall but it was an immense crash, one that I’m really disappointed about it. It was totally unnecessary at that point of the race and where we were starting, there was no need for that.”

Monaco Grand Prix - Reaction from George Russell

“Max put me under a lot of pressure, but it was under control. For sure when the red flag came out it was frustrating for everyone.

“The spice in Monaco is strategy but that was thrown out with the red flag. I was really surprised with how that [the tyres] lasted. The team has worked hard. I’m excited for the next race.”

Monaco Grand Prix - Reaction from Lewis Hamilton

“The signs of performance this weekend have been encouraging and I think three races in a row now we’ve brought upgrades and the people back in the factory have worked so hard.

“That’s really positive to see bit by bit. I know in the next race I will hopefully have the front wing as well and we will have more bits coming over the next few races so all is not lost.”

Monaco Grand Prix - Gasly still upset with Ocon

A first-lap collision between the two Alpine drivers left Esteban Ocon out of the race when it restarted. He received a 10-second penalty which will be converted into a five-place grid penalty at the next race in Canada.

Teammate Pierre Gasly told Sky Sports: “I’m just disappointed with Esteban - and for the team. It shouldn’t have happened. We’ve got thousands of people working for us and we can’t afford this behaviour.

“We had clear instructions before the race and this hasn’t been respected. And you should never take that much risk to take both cars out with your team-mate.

“I’m sure it will be discussed, but we can’t afford to have a similar situation in the future.”
