Max Verstappen will be looking to continue his scintillating form by winning the Monaco Grand Prix
title for the second time in his career.
What to know about Verstappen
The Dutch-Belgian star is the current king of Formula One having won back-to-back world championships with Red Bull Racing-Honda RBPT.
Verstappen scored the first hat-trick of his career at the 2021 French Grand Prix and his first grand slam at the 2021 Austrian Grand Prix.
The world champion finished third in last year's Monaco Grand Prix having started fourth on the grid.
Most recent race
Verstappen won the 2023 Miami Grand Prix on May 7 and it was his fifth consecutive podium finish in the current campaign.
The 25-year-old beat his teammate Sergio Perez to victory, recovering from ninth on the grid and passing the pole-sitter in the closing stages of an intriguing race.
Why Verstappen could win the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix
Verstappen is still placed at the top of the World Drivers' Championship standings having won three out of five races this season.
The current campaign has seen the Hasselt-born star win the Bahrain Grand Prix, Australian Grand Prix and Miami Grand Prix.
Having won the 2021 Monaco Grand Prix title, Verstappen knows what it takes to win at the Circuit de Monaco.
What did he say?
"Today was a good day, I stayed out of trouble at the beginning and I had a smooth race," Verstappen said after the 2023 Miami Grand Prix.
"I picked the cars off one by one. I had a good stint on the hard tyres which I think was integral to the win today. I had a good battle with Checo [[Perez] towards the end there too.
"I, of course, had the advantage with the new tyres but I think that’s what we like to see, we are free to race," he continued.
"Yesterday was a bit of a setback, today we kept it calm and clean, and winning the race from P9 was very satisfying."
