Sergio Perez said after his massive crash in the first lap of the Monaco GP: “We had a lot of damage, we had a very dangerous incident. Also [I’m] very disappointed that it didn’t get investigated, because it was a massive incident, my car is completely destroyed and I have a lot of damage.”

Despite the severity of the crash, race stewards surprisingly chose not to investigate the collision between Magnussen and Perez. The decision left many scratching their heads, especially considering the magnitude of the impact. Fans and experts alike debated whether the incident warranted further scrutiny.

The red flag caused by the Perez-Magnussen collision changed the dynamics of the race. Teams scrambled to adjust their strategies. Leclerc, along with McLaren’s Oscar Piastri and Carlos Sainz, opted not to pit during the interruption. They would have to nurse their tyres for an extended period, far beyond what Pirelli had predicted. But their careful driving and pace management paid off.

As the lights went out and the cars roared off the grid, chaos erupted in the first corner. Kevin Magnussen’s Haas clipped the rear of Perez’s Red Bull, sending both cars spinning. The impact was colossal, resulting in a red flag and a pile-up involving Nico Hulkenberg as well. Sergio Perez’s car was left in ruins, and the Mexican driver expressed his frustration: “We had a lot of damage, we had a very dangerous incident. Also, [I’m] very disappointed that it didn’t get investigated.”

While the chaos unfolded, Charles Leclerc of Ferrari seized the opportunity. Starting from pole position, Leclerc managed to convert his advantage into a controlled victory. It was a story of redemption for the Monegasque driver, who had previously missed out on wins at his home race. This time, neither he nor Ferrari made any mistakes, executing a flawless race strategy.

In the closing laps, Leclerc showcased his dominance. He stretched his lead, crossing the finish line seven seconds ahead of Piastri. The Ferrari driver’s screams of delight over the radio echoed through the streets of Monaco.
