Was Hamilton's Monaco win ever in real jeopardy?
By:

Lewis Hamilton was adamant over the radio that he needed a "miracle" to win the Monaco Grand Prix given his tyre situation and Max Verstappen's hounding. Does this rate as one of his greatest victories?

Lewis Hamilton's Monaco Grand Prix record is patchy for a driver of his virtuosity. He's always been fast on the tortuously twisty streets, all the way back to Formula 3 days when he won here, but his under-pressure victory in the 2019 race was only the third of his 77 F1 wins to come in Monte Carlo.

If there was any doubt about how desperately Hamilton wants to build a legacy here that could stand with that of his hero Ayrton Senna, you only had to witness his joyous fence-climbing reaction to bagging what was somehow only his second pole position here in 13 attempts.
