F1 returns to Monaco this week with Max Verstappen having asserted himself at the top of the drivers’ standings after a hat-trick of race wins.

The reigning world champion took full advantage of Charles Leclerc’s engine failure in Barcelona last week and now leads the Ferrari driver by six points.

Leclerc has had wretched luck in the past on his home circuit in Monaco, failing to finish the race on all of his three F1 appearances and endured further embarrassment just a few weeks ago when he crashed a vintage Niki Lauda Ferrari into the barriers.

Mercedes come into the race with higher hopes after a much-improved outing in Spain but both George Russell and Lewis Hamilton are a long way adrift already in the championship.

Here is everything you need to know:
