The Monaco Grand Prix weekend showed Mercedes at its best, Ferrari continuing to struggle, and the progress made by Red Bull-Honda. It also laid bare the ongoing struggles of Renault, which admitted to the technical problems that have held it back since the start of the season.
Lewis Hamilton's victory was the sixth of the season for Mercedes, and the only real problem was that its run of one-twos came to an end thanks to Valtteri Bottas finishing 'only' third. Even with the tyre troubles, Mercedes is unstoppable at the moment.
When things are going for you, they really are going for you. When the safety car came out, Mercedes took a risk and put Hamilton and Bottas on the medium tyres. After a coming-together with Max Verstappen when leaving the pits, Bottas had to pit again and fit the hards, which the Red Bull driver and Sebastian Vettel were already running.
