The season of Formula 1 returns after more than 20 days of downtime due to the suspension of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix due to heavy rain in Italy. In view of the Monaco GP, which will take place from 26 to 28 May, Red Bull will try to extend the leadership of both classifications.
The suspension inside Imola caused another stalemate in the current season, which sees two-time world champion Max Verstappen at the top of the drivers’ standings with 119 points. He is closely followed by his teammate Sergio Pérez, with whom he has alternated 1-2 in four of the five races held so far.
Checo stayed with the victory in the Monte Carlo circuit last season, and a hypothetical victory would allow him to reach the top of the standings for the first time in his career. The Mexican has collected 105 units so far and is 14 behind Verstappen.
For its part, Red Bull leads the constructors’ standings with 224 units, a far cry from Aston Martin’s 102 points and Mercedes’ 96 points, which see Fernando Alonso (3rd) and Lewis Hamilton (4th) battling in the most top of the ranking. .
Indeed, the seven-time champion of the Formula 1 made headlines in recent days for an alleged 40 million euro offer from Ferrari to join the team at the end of the year, despite the driver having repeatedly stated that his goal was to continue at Mercedes after terminated the contract at the end of the season.
Toto Wolff, director of the Mercedes team, referred to Hamilton’s possible departure and said: “There is nothing between Hamilton and Ferrari. Those rumors come up every two years when we have to renew his contract. All that has been said is false. ” .
“With Hamilton we talk normally, without time pressure. The sad thing is that two friends, two blood brothers who have been on good terms for ten years, suddenly have to discuss money,” he added.
