Sergio Perez secured a glorious third race win at the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix, which turned out to be arguably the most bizarre race weekend of the 2022 F1 season so far. Despite struggling with his tires, the Mexican denied the Ferraris another win this season, extending Red Bull's lead over the Prancing Horse significantly. Championship leader Max Verstappen finished the race in third, making the Monaco Grand Prix the first race this season where the Dutchman has seen the checkered flag but failed to win the race.

The chaotic 3-hour-long Grand Prix offered tons of drama and two red flags, the second of which was caused by Mick Schumacher's crash, which significantly changed the course of the race. Home hero Charles Leclerc comfortably led the race from pole despite the tricky wet conditions from the heavy rains that caused the race start to be delayed. Red Bull, however, pulled off a phenomenal strategy to overcut Ferrari and gain a significant advantage with the tires through the pit stops. This pushed the Monegasque back in fourth, and the 24-year-old could never recover from it. While Leclerc finally made it to the checkered flag for the first time in Monaco, he missed out on a podium finish, let alone a win. His teammate Carlos Sainz, on the other hand, who has been visibly struggling this season, managed to drive a strong race and got very close to securing the first race win of his career in Monte Carlo, but disappointingly lost it to the Mexican.

Fernando Alonso's drive in the second half of the race was another big story from a crazy Sunday at the "crown jewel" of F1. His defense against seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton kept several cars over thirty seconds behind the front of the pack. The Spaniard led the car train from the seventh position down to the end of the grid with over half a minute's distance to Lando Norris' McLaren. In the end, Alonso managed to remain ahead of the Briton, securing his best result of the 2022 F1 season so far.
