Vettel's Monaco win 'will be part of our history — Ferrari chairman

Vettel's Monaco win 'will be part of our history — Ferrari chairman

But when you are controlling the Monaco Grand Prix from the front in the fastest auto, you have to be some dunderhead to pit the leader and turn him into the runner-up. This is Vettel's third win of the season who is leading the driver's standing table.

"Ferrari seems to work everywhere, so these next 14 races will be very very hard", he said.

Raikkonen, who had started on pole for the first time in almost nine years, bossed the early running, but Ferrari's decision to pit him five laps earlier than Vettel scuppered his hopes of winning.

Hamilton received help from teammate Valtteri Bottas at the Bahrain Grand Prix when the Finn let him pass for second place, but Mercedes justified that by saying it was the team's best chance of winning.

It was a first win for Ferrari in Monaco since 2001 and on a weekend when his main title rival Lewis Hamilton struggled it was a dream result for Vettel. That was during Ferrari's dominant era.

Ferrari invest a chunk of money in the mathematicians responsible for crunching numbers on the pit wall.

Ozil's corner was headed on to a post by Welbeck and Ramsey also hit the woodwork from three yards out. The experienced centre-back had suffered a serious knee injury in a pre-season match at Lens.

"It's very, very special to win here", Vettel said. We know the Ferraris are not bulletproof'. This was such an intense race. Vettel said after the race.

The safety vehicle came out again briefly with a handful of laps to go after Russian Daniil Kvyat became the latest to lose control of his auto in a frantic finish to the race.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo was third, saying afterwards that he felt it was nearly a redemption for missing out on a win previous year having started on pole. "Obviously they had reasons for it, but it is not up to me to answer". "Ferrari were very strong this weekend and for whatever reason, their vehicle seems easier to operate". As the German national anthem played, he stood atop the podium with his eyes closed.

With his new set of super-softs, Hamilton was briefly the fastest man on the track and quickly closed on sixth-placed Carlos Sainz Jr.

Indeed much of the paddock had been in agreement before the race that the Italian team would ensure Vettel, rather than Raikkonen, who is a distant fourth in the championship, would receive the winner's trophy from Prince Albert of Monaco. With track position imperative and overtaking virtually impossible at this most narrow and twisty of circuits, Ferrari's decision to call Raikkonen in before Vettel raised more than a few eyebrows.

"I was surprised myself when I came out ahead".

Rain was expected to continue through the night, though "at a lesser intensity", according to meteorological department chief S.R. The center said 38 deaths were reported from Kalutara while 46 were reported from the central southern district of Ratnapura.

"We are racing, we get along well, I can understand that Kimi's upset", said the German. Remarkably, he has not finished lower than second place so far in 2017. We are under no illusion that we are not flawless and have still got areas to improve on.

Whatever the strategy was, Ferrari will not mind after securing maximum points.

"That inconsistency has been following us through the season, and on the opposite side Ferrari put the vehicle on track in Barcelona and they were quick from the get-go", said Wolff. "Not only a victory, but a one-two finish at a Grand Prix with a tradition as glorious as Monaco, where Ferrari last won with another one-two, delivered on that occasion by Schumacher and (Rubens) Barrichello". He did not allow Raikkonen to pull away in the first stint of the race, put in some great laps when he did have clear air, and then once he had pitted pulled away and controlled the rest of the race.

The safety vehicle was deployed, and when Wehrlein's auto was rolled back on to its four wheels by the marshals, the 22-year-old mercifully emerged without any obvious injury.

"We have been dropping in and out of the "tyre window" and never had two cars within that window over the course of whole weekend". Marcus Ericsson crashed his Sauber and McLaren's Stoffel Vandoorne followed suit moments later. As a result, he lost out big time when it came to strategy.
