We won Monaco so.it feels good.

Vettel insisted in the build up to tomorrow's Monaco Grand Prix that he has no power to veto a Ferrari move for Hamilton.

The Australian reported a loss of power early on but managed to bring his vehicle home in first place ahead of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who finished second, with McLaren's Lewis Hamilton in third.

"Ferrari is an option, and an interesting one for Lewis, but he needs to capitalise on the momentum he has at Mercedes".

"You have done an unbelievable job today", team boss Christian Horner said after Ricciardo took the chequered flag 7.3 seconds clear of Vettel for his second win of the season and seventh of his career.

"I think they are usually able to push but if the direction for the future races is to go softer, they will push less".

As a result of his performance throughout practice and qualifying before driving around problems in the race, Ricciardo rates his victory as one of his finest drives. Between this and the Renault engine's power surfeit, at least 50 horsepower according to preseason reports, the engine output gap was likely in the neighborhood of 210 horsepower.


"OK mate, we can see what's going on", his race engineer replied after a pause.

And some people just can't keep away. Daniel Ricciardo may never get a better chance to atone for his 2016 misfortune on this circuit than the one he has carved out for himself this weekend. "Negative", came the reply. Verstappen will start from the back on Sunday, and could struggle to work his way through the field even in the quickest vehicle: Overtaking at Monaco is notoriously hard. For lap after lap, he kept the gap. Before the half way, I felt a loss of power and I thought the race was done. We got home just using six gears. "Thanks to the team".

"I was thinking back to when he joined us, where he's blessed to have three children now and he's built a number of businesses and has certain responsibilities", Kraft said, per The Boston Globe. "I don't know how much of the radio was broadcast, but we had a lot to deal with during the race".

Vettel, whose teammate Kimi Raikkonen starts fourth and ahead of Mercedes's Valtteri Bottas, said Ricciardo had "owned" the qualifying session.

Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo will be starting the F1 Monaco Grand Prix on pole tomorrow, beating Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel and Mercedes'Lewis Hamilton. They brought him in, changed up his boots, and he went on his merry way, spending the rest of the afternoon pootling around in last place, clocking some very fast laps due to the sizeable gap between him and the rest of the field leaving him with clean air to enjoy.

Ricciardo had already smashed the all-time track record repeatedly in practice before qualifying in 1:10.810. Carlos Sainz took the final point on offer in the second Renault.
