Verstappen denies delight at Perez’s Monaco woes

Max Verstappen, the current Formula 1 World Champion, has dismissed claims that he is reveling in his teammate Sergio Perez’s misfortune during the Monaco Grand Prix. Verstappen’s dominant victory in Monaco allowed him to extend his lead over Perez in the championship standings, capitalizing on Perez’s difficult weekend.

Heading into the race, Verstappen held a 14-point advantage over Perez. However, after a crash in qualifying, Perez was forced to start from the back of the grid, while Verstappen secured pole position. Verstappen went on to deliver a near-flawless performance in the race, with the exception of a minor incident with the Turn 16 barrier. In contrast, Perez faced multiple challenges, including contact with barriers and rivals, ultimately finishing in a disappointing 15th position.
