Statistics After the Monaco Grand Prix

28/05/2024

Charles Leclerc’s historic win in Monaco has set new records, marking a monumental achievement for both the driver and his country.

As with every Grand Prix, it’s time to uncover the most notable statistics, the records broken, and the remarkable series that either continued or came to a sudden halt over the past weekend…

Qualifying

Ferrari secured its 250th pole position in history and its 13th in Monaco.

Charles Leclerc achieved his third pole in Monaco, matching Michael Schumacher, Niki Lauda, and Sir Stirling Moss.

Oscar Piastri secured his second career front-row start.

This marks McLaren’s first front-row start in Monaco since Jenson Button in 2011.

George Russell, 5th, extended his qualifying dominance over Lewis Hamilton this year (7-1). It’s the best Mercedes qualifying result since Bahrain.

Max Verstappen finished sixth in Q3, falling short of beating the record he shares with Ayrton Senna (8 consecutive poles, he remains at 9).

The margins were tight – Verstappen was only 0.049 seconds slower than Sainz, who was third.

Lewis Hamilton equaled his best qualifying of the year with sixth place.

Yuki Tsunoda secured eighth place, his sixth top-10 start in the last seven races.

Alex Albon reached Q3 for the first time this year, also marking Williams F1’s best result in Monaco since 2016.

Pierre Gasly became the first Alpine driver to make it to Q3 this year.

Lance Stroll finished 14th and is now tied with Fernando Alonso in qualifying, 4-4. Who would have thought?

Fernando Alonso faced his second consecutive Q1 elimination.

Logan Sargeant achieved his best qualifying of the year (17th fastest). Notably, he didn’t have the upgrades Albon had.

Sergio Perez was eliminated in Q1 for the second consecutive year in Monaco.

Zhou Guanyu finished last in qualifying for the fifth time in eight race weekends in 2024.

Race

He’s done it! Charles Leclerc is the first Monegasque driver to win the Monaco Grand Prix in the history of the F1 championship (since 1950).

Monegasque driver Louis Chiron also won the Monaco Grand Prix in 1931, during the race’s third edition, but the F1 championship was not officially created then.

At his home race in Monaco, Charles Leclerc had never previously stood on the podium – in F1 or F2.

This is Leclerc’s first victory since the 2022 Austrian Grand Prix, ending a 39-race winless streak.

Leclerc had not won any of his last 12 pole positions, the second-longest streak in history after René Arnoux (13).

Leclerc achieved his fifth podium in the first eight races, after only four podiums in the first 20 races of 2023.

This marks the 17th consecutive race weekend where Leclerc has scored points.

He now has six F1 victories, matching Ferrari’s other “little prince,” Gilles Villeneuve.

This is Ferrari’s 10th victory in Monaco.

Piastri finished second, equalling his best F1 Grand Prix result – after the 2023 Qatar Grand Prix. It’s his first podium of the year.

This is McLaren’s best result in Monaco since Lewis Hamilton’s victory in 2008.

Four different drivers (Max Verstappen, Carlos Sainz, Lando Norris, Charles Leclerc) have won this year in eight races.

Sainz finished third and has never finished outside the top five this season when he has participated in a race.

Lando Norris, 4th, ended a streak of three consecutive podiums.

In one Grand Prix, Sergio Pérez lost three places in the drivers’ standings (dropping from 2nd to 5th place).

George Russell finished fifth, equalling Mercedes F1’s best result of the year.

Apart from retirements, this is the first time Max Verstappen finished outside the top five since the 2022 Brazilian Grand Prix (6th place). His worst finish in 2023 was 5th in Singapore.

This is the first time since 2007 that a Red Bull did not finish in the top five in Monaco.

Red Bull also scored only eight points, its lowest total since Bahrain 2022.

In the last 11 Grands Prix, Max Verstappen led the first lap of a race. This streak has ended.

Lewis Hamilton has finished in the top eight in Monaco 16 times out of 17 Grands Prix. He also finished in his starting position for the fifth time in the last six races.

Yuki Tsunoda scored his first points in Monaco.

Alex Albon scored Williams’ first points of the year. Sauber is now the only team yet to score points in 2024.

Pierre Gasly scored his first point of the year, the second for Alpine.

Fernando Alonso has now missed out on points in two consecutive races after scoring in the first six Grands Prix of the year.

Nico Hulkenberg retired on the first lap for the 12th time in his career, more than any other driver on the grid.

For the first time in F1 history, the top 10 on the grid was the top 10 at the finish line. Processional…

The previous record concerned the top 6, at Monaco 2018 and Singapore 2018. And let’s not forget Belgium 2021, the famous 3-minute race.

For the first time in history, a father (Charles Leclerc) and his adopted son (Oscar Piastri-Leclerc) shared the top two positions in both qualifying and the race.
