The Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco started behind the safety car in wet conditions, but was run mainly in glorious sunshine with Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton narrowly defeating Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo after an epic battle around the streets of Monte Carlo on Sunday.
With victory in Monaco, Lewis Hamilton became the 15th driver to win more than once on the tricky street course.
Hamilton had gone eight races without a win, but his victory on Sunday means he maintains his incredible record of having never gone more than 10 races in his F1 career without a win. It also continues his remarkable streak of having won at least one Grand Prix in every season in which he has raced. Monaco was the 87th race that Hamilton has led in his F1 career, taking him past his hero Ayrton Senna for second on the all-time list.
Only Michael Schumacher (142) has led more races than the Briton
