How Ricciardo eclipsed a Schumacher classic - F1

Monaco GP

As he usually does after a victory, Ricciardo took off his shoe and drank champagne out of it. Adrian Newey, the team's chief technical officer, also gulped some down albeit while cautiously pinching his nose.

But trouble suddenly struck for the 28-year-old with 50 of this 78-lap marathon race remaining when he reported a loss of engine power. "If that was exciting for you to watch, no problem".

"Two years in the making - I finally feel like the redemption has arrived".

"We had problems, we had a lot to deal with during the race". I think I did everything [in the race] with a certain margin. Try to get a few more podiums but yeah, we've got to probably prove on at least one other circuit before the summer break that we can win again. "And it feels good".

Hamilton, a four-time world champion and the current leader in the drivers' standings, was equally scathing, saying "it wasn't really racing".

Hartley's Toro Rosso team opted to pit him earlier than most - on lap 14 - but he was handed a five-second time penalty for speeding in the lane.

Actually, Red Bull boss Christian Horner says the team will wait much longer than just Canada next weekend. "We knew that would be the case". So where did the Monaco Grand Prix lose its suspense?

The Australian celebrated with a dip in Red Bull's pool

Esteban Ocon took sixth place on the grid for Force India ahead of McLaren's Fernando Alonso and the Renault of Carlos Sainz. Verstappen will start from the back on Sunday, and could struggle to work his way through the field even in the quickest auto: Overtaking at Monaco is notoriously hard. The Red Bull Racing prodigy, who has committed 6 errors out of 6 races this season, started last after a crash in Free Practice 3 that made his vehicle irreparable for qualifying.

"The tyre's awful", said Hamilton, who led Bottas in to pit for new hyper-softs.

Hamilton made an audacious move by pitting for new tires several laps before his rivals, but was anxious they would wear out by the end.

"I've got loss of power, " the 28-year-old suddenly announced on the team radio, and immediately began limping the auto around the track about 30km/h slower than his previous speed. That surely made victory even sweeter on Sunday and his post-race celebration on the Red Bull floating Energy Station, dubbed the "floaterhome", was proof of that. "You just need to keep it smooth. I discussed it with Adrian and he was in total agreement that we go until it smokes".

Hamilton came third in Monaco with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel finishing second.

Ricciardo, who was nursing an MGU-K issue for most of the race, admitted the circuit layout allowed him to get away with maintaining a slow pace out front. Lewis Hamilton will line up third on the grid after setting a time 0.422s off Ricciardo.
