If you told Williams driver George Russell he'd have two Grand Prix wins under his belt before June the young Briton would probably have fainted. 

However, that's just what happened. Albeit from the comfort of his home nestled in a sim-racing rig, the 22-year-old landed a second consecutive virtual grand prix win: this time the Monaco GP. 

The Williams driver cruised to the win, leading every lap and equaling Ferrari's Charles Leclerc with two wins apiece. Russell beat Leclerc in the virtual Spanish GP a fortnight ago, winning in dramatic fashion. 

No such antics were needed this time as he finished a massive 39 seconds ahead of former F1 Mexican driver Esteban Gutierrez and Leclerc who joined Russell on the podium. 

Arsenal forward Arsenal Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, meanwhile, was 16th on his virtual GP debut, while his team mate for the race Lando Norris finished in seventh position. 

Check out top 10 finishers and how Russell finished it off.
