The Monaco Grand Prix: Quintessentially Formula 1.

Here are the complete results from the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix, including updated championship standings after the sixth round of the championship.

Max Verstappen has won a dramatic race on the streets of Monte Carlo, with the Red Bull driver picking his way through an exciting 78-lap stand-off with Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso.

Having started from pole position on the Medium compound, Alonso attempted a different strategy by opting for the Hard Pirellis. Holding position through the first lap, Verstappen slowly but surely established an ever-growing lead over Alonso as the pair pulled away with ease from third-placed Esteban Ocon.

With a quarter of the race to go, with neither of the pair having pitted, rain began spitting down on the circuit at the end of the first sector, resulting in chaos as the drivers enjoyed a dry surface for two-thirds of the lap, before having to slow dramatically through the hairpin section.

Alonso attempted a strategy coup by pitting for fresh Mediums, but the call turned out to be the wrong one as the rain intensified to cover the circuit. Verstappen pitted for Intermediates, resulting in a comfortable lead over Alonso – Verstappen having been fortunate to avoid a hefty hit with the barriers after getting it wrong into Portier and gently tapping the Armco.

With everyone pitting for the Intermediates, the race settled back down with Verstappen coming home with a comfortable lead over Alonso, with Ocon holding firm in third place.

Mercedes got the better of Ferrari through the pit-stop sequence, with Lewis Hamilton finishing fourth ahead of George Russell.

Charles Leclerc was the highest-placed Ferrari by coming home in sixth, ahead of Alpine’s Pierre Gasly and Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz.

The points places were rounded out by McLaren with Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri in ninth and 10th place, respectively.
