The overall Formula 1 standings look a little different after the Monaco Grand Prix. One of the most historic venues in all of sports offered plenty of twists and turns on Sunday morning, as per usual, with Perez coming out on top.
The overall standings, however, remain in tact for the most part. Perez made up some ground, but he has more work to do if he’s to take home the majority of the prize money come the end of the season.

There were many, many more.
It’s a long F1 season, but Monaco serves as the most historic track in the sport for a reason. Here’s the hoping the race lasts long past 2022.
