Sergio Perez crashed during the qualifying around the Principality of Monaco. While this may seem like news from last year where his crash put him ahead of his teammate in qualifying, the opposite happened this year. Perez crashed in the Q1 session and tumbled down the order to start from P20. As his crash meant a Red Bull out of the way, putting the Red Bull out of the way was a visual everyone wanted to remember, including Lewis Hamilton.

Red Bull’s alchemist Adrian Newey has built a car with impeccable groundwork effect and the F1 grid, along with all those who comprise the F1 world, have always wondered what is beneath that rocket ship that Max Verstappen drives. And the Monaco evacuation procedure has now put all the mystery at ease.

A gigantic crane almost airlifted the cars that crashed. And this gave everyone a view of the hidden secret of Red Bull. As quoted by F1 Maximaal, host of the Checkered Flag podcast, Rosanna Tennant, stated that Hamilton also admitted to taking pictures of the spectacle to share it with his team. She said, “Hamilton was joking with me that he has saved the photos of the floor of the Red Bull on his phone and he will look at them very closely, zooming in.”

“It felt very twitchy, and the tires weren’t working, so it was like I was on ice,” said Lewis Hamilton on his radio when the rain gods began looking down upon the streets of Monaco. He later explained his message, stating he was close to a shunt.

 He said, “After some time, the tires started to work, and it was absolutely fine. But I was so close to going off and crashing, having a big shunt. It was very, very bad. There’s really no word to describe how difficult it was. I think that from my side, I couldn’t get the temperature into the intermediate tires, so I was just tiptoeing. I think our crossover was good, it’s just that I lost ground to everyone when I had to stop, so we were at a bit of a disadvantage there and it just made it a little bit trickier, but no mistakes kept it on track.”
