After the Monaco Grand Prix, where do things stand in terms of the overall standings? Sergio Perez won the race, but he has more work to do.
The overall Formula 1 standings look a little different after the Monaco Grand Prix. One of the most historic venues in all of sports offered plenty of twists and turns on Sunday morning, as per usual, with Perez coming out on top.
The overall standings, however, remain in tact for the most part. Perez made up some ground, but he has more work to do if he’s to take home the majority of the prize money come the end of the season.
The overall standings after Monaco are as follows, 1-10:
Verstappen has the advantage so far in the F1 standings, while Lewis Halimton is a distant sixth place. With his victory on Sunday in Monaco, Perez closed the gap, as he’s in third with 110 points.
Red Bull dominated the podium in Monaco, and the social media reactions reflected just that.

There were many, many more.
It’s a long F1 season, but Monaco serves as the most historic track in the sport for a reason. Here’s the hoping the race lasts long past 2022.
