The Monaco GP is always a special event for the Formula 1 paddock. Therefore, the ASN team decided to introduce a new feature: ASN F1 Power Rankings.

Notice that the ASN team started to do the power rankings from the Monaco GP and not from the start of the season. Therefore, some drivers that might have let the fans down during the first races are now in a higher position since we, the ASN team, evaluated each driver’s performance from the Monaco GP.

1) Sergio Perez. The Mexican driver for Red Bull is the leader of the Power Rankings after the race at Monte Carlo. Started in P9, he managed to recover up to P4 thanks to a great strategy.

2) Carlos Sainz. The Ferrari driver had a great pace throughout the whole weekend, and he managed to achieve the first podium for Ferrari.

3) Max Verstappen. The Dutchman leads the championship standings for the first time in his career, and he did everything perfectly in Monaco, winning his first race in the Principality.

6) Charles Leclerc. The home hero grabbed pole position on Saturday but eventually crashed. That damaged his car, which broke right before the race, and his unlucky streak in Monaco continues.

7) Pierre Gasly. After a difficult start to the season, Pierre showed what he is capable of, keeping Lewis Hamilton at bay, and taking a great P6 for the team.

8) Valtteri Bottas. The Finnish driver could challenge Verstappen for the win, but an unlucky pit stop forced him to retire; the misfortune is not leaving him alone.

9) Antonio Giovinazzi. The Italian scored the first point for Alfa Romeo, and he could have also gained one position more, but he could not overtake Ocon after the pit stop.

10) Esteban Ocon. The French driver scored points for Alpine on a very difficult weekend, and he outscored Fernando Alonso once again, proving that he is a very talented driver.

11) Lance Stroll. The Canadian driver managed to enter the top ten once again, proving that he deserves to be in Formula 1; he did a great job in bringing extra points to the team.

12) Kimi Raikkonen. He finished just outside the top ten. He managed to recover three positions from where he started, but still, it was an anonymous race for him.

13) George Russell. Another difficult weekend for the Williams driver, who finished outside of the points once again.

14) Lewis Hamilton. It was one of the toughest race weekends for the seven-time world champion. He struggled since Thursday, and he did not manage to gain a single position on Sunday. Plus, he said that he was disappointed with the strategy. A weekend no one would expect from him.

15) Daniel Ricciardo. If the one in Spain was a decent weekend for him, the one in Monaco must be forgotten. He struggled to find the right confidence, and he was also lapped by his teammate.

16) Fernando Alonso. He struggled in qualifying finishing only P17, admitting that the team made a step backward. However, even though he did not score points, he was happy about Sunday since he gained some positions.

17) Nicholas Latifi. Another poor weekend for the Canadian, only in P15 during the race and once again behind his teammate.

18) Nikita Mazepin. He exceeded the expectations in Monaco, and it was a very solid weekend for him. The Russian driver was faster than his teammate on Sunday, and he did a great job on a difficult track.

19) Yuki Tsunoda. It was a difficult weekend for the Japanese driver as well. He was out in Q1 and struggled throughout the whole race. He never raced around Monaco, so it was not an easy race for him.

20) Mick Schumacher. The German driver crashed twice in the free practice. He could not take part to qualify since his car was damaged and he finished behind his teammate. It was not an ideal weekend for him, but he learned a lot for sure.

I am an Italian guy. I love Motorsport because of the emotions that it gives me and I grew up watching races. That's what I love!
