🏁 Round 31: the two Red Bulls left with medium tyres, while the Ferraris are on hard tyres.
🏁 Round 31: here we go again in this Grand Prix, the cars are behind the safety car.
This should allow drivers finishing in the top ten to have all of their points, since it is necessary to do three quarters of the Grand Prix to have all the points.
30 rounds were completed. We shouldn’t reach 77 laps, but rather around 60 laps, since the stopwatch will stop around 6 p.m.
🔴 The race will resume at 5:15 p.m., with a flying start!

Kevin Magnussen (Haas), who gave up, at the microphone of Canal + :
I had a power unit problem, failure. I had to stop. It’s a shame, because we had a lot of rhythm. I think we could have taken points today. It’s hard to be out of this race.
It is not yet known when the new start will take place, or in what way. What we do know, however, is that the chono of the race started at 4:05 p.m., and that it lasts two hours. So, whatever happens, this Grand Prix will not be able to continue beyond 6:05 p.m.

🏁 Round 30: the cars are still behind the safety car, as the track sweep seems to be at an end.

🏁 Round 22: double stop by the Ferraris, who each took hard tyres. The two Red Bulls took the opportunity to pass in front. Carlos Sainz is 3rd, Charles Leclerc 5th. The Monegasque is furious with this new pit stop, he makes it known on the radio.

🏁 Round 20: we saw a contact between Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) and Esteban Ocon (Alpine). The Briton tried to pass the Frenchman, but the latter closed the door, and Hamilton’s front wing was now damaged.
🏁 Round 19: Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) in turn pitted to put on intermediate tyres, but he left in 3rd position, behind Carlos Sainz (Ferrari) and Sergio Perez (Red Bull). The Scuderia strategy did not work!
🏁 Round 18: the big question for the drivers at the moment is whether they should pit for new tires or not. And, if so, which tyres, between slicks and intermediates. Lando Norris (McLaren) puts on intermediates. For the moment, no one has taken slicks.
🏁 Round 17: Sergio Perez (Red Bull) also pits and puts on intermediate tyres. He was 3rd, he is now 5th, ahead of George Russell (Mercedes) and behind Lando Norris (McLaren).

🏁 Round 12: Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) sets the race record, in 1’35 »323.

🌧️ The rain comes to Monaco
Often singled out for its lack of spectacle, the Monaco Grand Prix, which takes place this weekend (May 27-29), is in its last year of contract with Formula 1. If it still enjoys the prestige that associated with it, it must evolve to meet the new requirements of F1.
The Dutch driver, reigning world champion, Max Verstappen believes that his rival, the Monegasque Charles Leclerc was out of reach this Saturday in qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix.
The end of Q3 of the Monaco Grand Prix was disrupted by an accident on Saturday May 28. Sergio Perez (Red Bull) spun on the circuit, before being hit by Carlos Sainz (Ferrari).
The 2022 Monaco Grand Prix is on Sunday May 29. Formula 1 racing holds many surprises every year. In 2004, an extra-sporting reason caused a lot of talk: a 56.9-carat diamond, worth €200,000, was placed in front of Jaguar Racing. One of the two drivers in the team had an accident and in the crash the jewel disappeared. What did he become ? Was it destroyed or stolen? The mystery still persists to this day.
Like last year, Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) took pole position at home, this Saturday, May 28, during the Monaco Grand Prix.
