Hamilton triumphs at Monaco as Ricciardo suffers slow pit stop

Lewis Hamilton has finally won a race this season in a thrilling Monaco Grand Prix, while a pit stop heartbreak for Daniel Ricciardo cost him the top result.

The defending champion finished the 78-lap rain-hit race seven seconds clear from Red Bull’s Ricciardo with Sergio Perez taking the final podium spot for Force India.

Overnight rain continued throughout the morning in Monaco with conditions sufficiently treacherous that the race was started under the safety car for the first time in its history.

After seven laps, the safety car was called in and Ricciardo pulled away in the lead, ahead of Nico Rosberg and Hamilton.

It became clear Hamilton was the faster of the two Mercedes, with Rosberg struggling with brake temperatures, so the team instructed the German to let Hamilton past.

Hamilton set off in chase of Ricciardo and although the track was drying out, he chose to stay out on full wets when Ricciardo pitted for intermediates and therefore the lead.

Ricciardo caught Hamilton quickly and retook the lead when the Mercedes pitted for the ultra-soft at the end of lap 31 of 78.

The honey badger pitted next time around, but a miscommunication meant the tyres were not ready when he reached the pitbox.

Eventually, the team fitted super-softs and got him out, but as he exited the pits Hamilton swept around the outside to retake the lead.

That slow pit stop ultimately cost Red Bull Racing and Daniel Ricciardo the Monaco Grand Prix victory. As overtaking around the tight, twisty circuit is nearly impossible.

Ricciardo closed on Hamilton as they went through the tunnel with the Mercedes cutting the chicane and then blocking his rival as he came under attack on the outside on the run to Tabac.

Ricciardo waved his hand in frustration but the race stewards decided to take no further action after investigating the incident.

Hamilton then absorbed the huge pressure from Ricciardo to keep the lead and secure his 44th career victory and first since he clinched his third world title in last year’s United States Grand Prix.

Perez jumped to third with well-timed tyre changes and then resisted heavy pressure from Sebastian Vettel’s Ferrari to give Force India its first podium of the season.

Vettel’s team-mate Kimi Raikkonen retired early on when he crashed at the Loews hairpin, blocking Romain Grosjean as he tried to rejoin and then pulling off at the exit of the tunnel with his front wing lodged underneath the car.

Fernando Alonso finished a brilliant fifth place with Nico Hulkenberg stealing sixth off a low-key Rosberg on the final lap.

That means Hamilton has cut the gap to title rival Rosberg in the championship to 24 points.

Carlos Sainz Jr, Jenson Button and Felipe Massa completed the top ten.

Sauber asked Felipe Nasr to let his team-mate Marcus Ericsson by but Nasy questioned the decision.

Ericsson then tried a move at Rascasse and the two cars collided, resulting in both retiring soon afterwards.

As for Max Verstappen. This was a hero to zero moment for the Red Bull driver.

He fought his way up into the points after starting from the pit lane but crashed at Massenet – his third crash of the weekend.

It was a tough race for Renault with Jolyon Palmer crashing when he lost grip on the pits straight kink as the race began and Kevin Magnussen hitting the barrier at Mirabeau.

Magnussen had previously collided with Daniil Kvyat at Rascasse, with Kvyat later retiring, having been a lap down after suffering a problem with his steering wheel at the start.

So a great result for Lewis Hamilton. His 44th career victory in such a thrilling race. Red Bull let Daniel Ricciardo down with a slow pit-stop but kudos to Sergio Perez in scoring a podium for Force India.

Ricciardo achieves maiden pole in Monaco

Daniel Ricciardo recorded his maiden pole position in Formula 1 with an impressive lap around the tight, twisty street circuit in Monaco.

The Honey Badger’s lap of one minute, 13. 622 seconds was just spectacular and highlight the speed plus grip of the RB12 chassis.

This was Red Bull Racing’s first pole since the last V8-engined season of Formula 1 in 2013.

Championship leader Nico Rosberg will start second on the grid, just 0.169 seconds slower than Ricciardo. While Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton suffered a fuel pressure issue that hampered his Q3.

The reigning title winner recovered from this delay to come through into third. Ahead of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel – who was quickest in Q1 – Nico Hulkenberg’s Force India and Kimi Raikkonen.

The Iceman qualified in sixth place but will drop a further five places on the grid following a gearbox change in the Ferrari.

Toro Rosso’s Carlos Sainz recorded the seventh fastest time, a solid effort and only 0.017 seconds slower than Raikkonen.

Sergio Perez, Daniil Kvyat and Fernando Alonso in the McLaren-Honda completes the top ten at Monaco.

Valtteri Bottas missed out on a place in Q3 by 0.166 seconds as Williams elected to send its drivers out for a single run each in Q2.

Team-mate Felipe Massa was only 0.112 seconds slower but that was enough to leave him P14, behind Esteban Gutierrez and Jenson Button.

Gutierrez’s Haas team-mate Romain Grosjean was a strong eighth fastest in Q1, but failed to find any time in Q2, ending up over a tenth slower than his earlier best and down in P15.

Kevin Magnussen’s Renault completed the top 16, nearly half a second further back, but he is under investigation for jumping a red light at the end of the pitlane in Q1, so may get a penalty.

Marcus Ericsson missed out on a place in Q2 by just 0.046 seconds after losing a late battle with Magnussen’s Renault in Q1.

Team Banana’s Jolyon Palmer, which suffered rear wing damage from an off in final practice, was nearly three tenths further back in P18.

Rio Haryanto got the better of Manor team-mate Pascal Wehrlein by 0.147 seconds to qualify P19.

Wehrlein failed to improve by 0.030 seconds on his second Q1 run so wound up P20.

As for the Spanish Grand Prix winner Max Verstappen. This was a hero to zero moment. The Red Bull driver will start from the penultimate row after breaking his right-front suspension by clipping the inside barrier at the Swimming Pool chicane, then crashing heavily into the barriers.

He at least set a time before doing so. Felipe Nasr’s Sauber failed to even complete a flying lap after its Ferrari engine blew up on his out-lap.

Verstappen becomes youngest F1 winner on Red Bull Racing debut

Max Verstappen made Formula 1 history by taking victory at the Circuit de Catalunya on his first appearance as a Red Bull Racing driver.

On his debut drive for Milton Keynes-based team after recently swapping seats with Daniil Kvyat, Toro Rosso graduate Verstappen became the youngest driver to win a race at the age of 18 years and 227 days, beating Sebastian Vettel’s record by more than two years.

Verstappen led for the final 32 of the 66 laps as he completed a two-stop strategy to perfection, finishing just 0.6 seconds ahead of Kimi Raikkonen in his Ferrari, with Vettel third, a further 4.9 seconds down.

While such an achievement was unforgettable, the Spanish Grand Prix will be go down in motor sport history as to what unfolded between Hamilton and Rosberg.

From second on the grid Rosberg enjoyed a slightly better start than Hamilton on pole and passed his team-mate around the outside at Turn 1.

Out of Turn 3 Hamilton managed to gain a superb launch, moving into Rosberg’s slipstream and across to the right as he aimed for an overtake.

Rosberg aggressively covered off what was an ambitious move by Hamilton, who had managed to get his front wing aligned with his team-mate’s right-rear tyre.

Trying to avoid a collision Hamilton took to the grass, but immediately went into a slide and careered into Rosberg, sending both into the gravel at Turn 4.

Hamilton immediately covered his visor with both hands, and after a period of reflection sat in his car, later flung his steering wheel out in a fit of anger.

The incident immediately brought out the safety car, with Daniel Ricciardo leading new team-mate Verstappen, followed by the Toro Rosso of Carlos Sainz Jr, who had started eighth, and the Ferraris of Vettel and Raikkonen.

After Vettel and Raikkonen eventually passed Sainz, a tense Red Bull versus Ferrari battle began.

They matched tactics at their first pit-stops for mediums, before both teams then split strategies.

Leader Ricciardo returned to soft rubber after his second stop – immediately indicating a three-stop plan – and was covered off by third-placed Vettel a lap later.

Verstappen, who had closed to within seven tenths of Ricciardo, and Raikkonen remained out, not pitting until laps 34 and 35 respectively and taking on medium tyres to commit to a two-stop strategy with a long stint to the finish.

After just eight laps on the softs, Ferrari made a tactical move by bringing in Vettel again for his third pit-stop, and moving back to the mediums.

Leader Ricciardo, following a poor few laps, took on his set of mediums after 43 laps, emerging some distance behind third-placed Vettel, with Verstappen holding on to a one-second cushion to Raikkonen at the front.

Despite constant pressure from Raikkonen, Verstappen stayed ahead to the chequered flag for a remarkable win.

As the lead quartet bunched up, Ricciardo attempted a pass on Vettel for third into Turn 1 with seven laps left, only to slightly overcook it and allow the four-time champion back through.

Vettel was forced to take evasive action to avoid hitting Ricciardo, and yet again an expletive-laden radio rant from the Ferrari driver.

Ricciardo kept pushing, but on the penultimate lap his right-rear tyre gave way, forcing him into the pits for a late change, and with such a significant gap to fifth-placed Valtteri Bottas in his Williams, he still claimed fourth.

Behind Bottas came Sainz, followed by the Force India of Sergio Perez, Felipe Massa’s Williams – charging from P18 on the grid – Jenson Button for McLaren, with Kvyat taking the final point with tenth.

Nico Hulkenberg was forced to retire after 21 laps following a small fire and with smoke coming from the back of his Force India, with McLaren’s Fernando Alonso following suit 25 laps later, bemoaning “no power”.

So a dramatic Spanish Grand Prix. The Mercedes self-destruct will be the major talking point as both Rosberg and Hamilton not given an inch. Yet, the feel good story from Barcelona is Verstappen winning his first race.

The youngest winner in the sport. On his debut with Red Bull Racing. Fantastic achievement. Here’s to many more for the Mad Max in Formula 1.

Hamilton strikes back with Spanish Grand Prix pole

Reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton responding to his critics with pole position at the Circuit de Catalunya.

The Mercedes driver beat his team-mate and title rival Nico Rosberg to P1. While Ferrari slipped behind in competitive form compared to Red Bull during qualifying.

Both Silver Arrows drivers made errors on their first flying lap in Q3, with Hamilton locking his brakes heavily at Turn 10.

But the defending champion recovered to grab pole position on his second run by 0.280 seconds from Rosberg.

Daniel Ricciardo qualified third quickest for Red Bull Racing, six tenths behind Rosberg’s Mercedes and just over two tenths clear of new team-mate Max Verstappen, who had split the Mercedes after the first runs in Q3.

Ferrari suffered a disappointing session, after a promising form in practice.

Kimi Raikkonen was only fifth quickest, just 0.026 seconds slower than Verstappen, while team-mate Sebastian Vettel qualified 0.221 seconds further back in sixth.

The Williams of Valtteri Bottas beat Carlos Sainz Jr’s Toro Rosso to seventh place by just over a tenth, with the Force India of Sergio Perez and Fernando Alonso’s McLaren-Honda rounding out the top ten.

This was McLaren’s first top ten appearance and to have both Spanish drivers at the mid-range of the pack will give the home supporters a cheer.

Nico Hulkenberg’s Force India split the McLaren-Hondas, failing to make the pole shootout by just 0.011 seconds.

Jenson Button was P12, just under a tenth clear of Toro Rosso returnee Daniil Kvyat.

Romain Grosjean sat inside the top ten after the first runs in Q2, but fell back to P14 after disappointingly failing to improve on his second run.

He was split from Haas team-mate Esteban Gutierrez by another impressive performance from Renault’s Kevin Magnussen, who qualified P15 in his under-developed car.

The Williams of Felipe Massa fell unexpectedly in Q1, after he aborted his second run. A timing issue was the cause of the early elimination which affected his qualifying.

He ended up P19, just behind the Renault of Jolyon Palmer, who briefly looked set to make it through to Q2 before a late improvement by Button’s McLaren.

Sauber and Manor brought up the rear of the grid. As Marcus Ericsson trailed Felipe Nasr after their first runs, but improved substantially on his second to finish 0.377 seconds clear of his Sauber team-mate.

Pascal Wehrlein also turned tables on Manor team-mate Rio Haryanto during their second runs, with a lap that put him 0.194 seconds clear and less than two tenths shy of Nasr’s Sauber.

Rosberg victorious for the seventh time

Championship leader Nico Rosberg dominated the Russian Grand Prix was ease to record his seventh straight victory in Formula 1.

His Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton was able to recovery from tenth to finish second. Despite a brief mid-race water-pressure scare.

Kimi Raikkonen took third for the Scuderia, which was the team’s 700th podium result in the sport.

As for his Ferrari team-mate Sebastian Vettel, he was out on the first lap no thanks to a double bash from ‘Russian torpedo’ Daniil Kvyat.

Vettel was attempting to pass Daniel Ricciardo for fifth up the inside into the Turn 2 on the opening lap, with Sergio Perez making it three wide on the outside line.

Vettel appeared to have made the move, only for Kvyat to tap the rear of the Ferrari and pitch it sideways and into Ricciardo, who in turn hit Perez and gave the Force India a right-rear puncture.

The Ferrari was then hit in the rear again by Kvyat in the fast Turn 3, pitching Vettel into the wall and out of the race and prompting a few F-bombs over the team radio.

Kvyat, who like team-mate Ricciardo had to pit for a new front wing, was given a ten-second stop and go penalty for causing the two collisions.


The safety car was deployed to clear up the wreckage of the Ferrari and the consequences of a separate incident in which Esteban Gutierrez hit Nico Hulkenberg’s Force India.

While Rosberg had the lead, Hamilton was running fifth, which became fourth position when he passed Felipe Massa’s Williams at Turn 2 at the restart.

Hamilton then dived up the inside of third-placed Kimi Raikkonen into Turn 4 on lap seven after The Iceman had a poor run out of the previous corner while chasing Valtteri Bottas.

Bottas was able to keep Hamilton behind when he pitted at the end of lap 16 of 53, with Hamilton emerging just behind after stopping a lap later.

But two laps later, the reigning champion was able to take second up the inside into Turn 2 even though Bottas also had the use of the DRS on the run to the corner thanks to the yet-to-stop Fernando Alonso being ahead.

Once in clear air, Hamilton did close on Rosberg, reducing the gap to 7.5 seconds by two-thirds distance prior to being warned of the water pressure issue that led to him easing off while it was checked.

The gap quickly extended to just over 13 seconds, with Rosberg eventually crossing the line 25 seconds clear after setting the fastest lap of the race on his penultimate time round the Sochi circuit.

Bottas lost out on the final podium position to Raikkonen, who ran four laps later in his first stint and emerged from his sole pitstop just in front of the Williams driver.

Massa had a lonely race to fifth, with the Williams team bringing him in for a late and risk-free stop at the end of lap 46 to switch to super-softs, presumably in case a safety car closed up the field again and he was able to attack.

He had a comfortable advantage over Fernando Alonso, who took his first points finish since last year’s Hungarian Grand Prix.

The double world champion capitalised on Toro Rosso driver Max Verstappen retiring from sixth place with an engine problem.

Kevin Magnussen delivered a strong race to take his and Renault’s first points of the season in seventh, prevailing in a tight five-car battle for the minor points positions.

He led home Romain Grosjean, who took the new Haas team’s third points finish in four races.

Perez recovered to ninth, with Jenson Button passing Carlos Sainz Jr for the final point late on. Scoring a double points finish for McLaren.

Ricciardo could only recover to P12 ahead of Jolyon Palmer after initially switching onto medium rubber following the first-lap problems and then making a second stop to bolt on softs.

Team-mate Kvyat was P15, behind Sauber’s Marcus Ericsson, after serving his penalty.

So four wins out of four for Nico Rosberg. The Mercedes driver is looking the clear favourite for the championship. Can Hamilton fight back? We shall see.
