Fernando Alonso echoes Lewis Hamilton’s scathing criticism of Monaco Grand Prix

Fernando Alonso echoes Lewis Hamilton’s scathing criticism of Monaco Grand Prix

In the third and final practice session for the Monaco Grand Prix, Verstappen hit the barrier entering the rapid "La Piscine" complex, breaking his front right suspension, his uncontrollable Red Bull RB14 subsequently jumping the curb and ending up in the opposite wall.

Second placed Sebastian Vettel was the sole competitor for the win and yet the Ferrari didn't seem to have the pace on the fast degrading ultra soft tyre, keeping him at least half a second behind Ricciardo for the bulk of the race. "We changed a lot of things that didn't fix the problem".

Reflecting on the moment he had lost power, Ricciardo, who lost a Monte Carlo victory because of a botched pit-stop in 2016, said he was sure another one was slipping from his grasp.

"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.

After battling with his vehicle for most of the race, that allowed Ricciardo to drive to the chequered flag with little pressure and claim his second win of the season.

Starting fourth tomorrow will be Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari, just 0.034s off Hamilton, while Valtteri Bottas was a second behind Raikkonen and will start fifth.

Fernando Alonso was another driver who also reported problems before a gearbox issue finally forced him out of the race. The second Red Bull of Max Verstappen used a similar strategy to go from last on the grid to ninth at the finish, but he will still be ruing his accident in final practice, which damaged his auto beyond fix ahead of qualifying and forced him to start from the back of the grid.

Hamilton stopped as early as lap 12 and had to manage a set of ultrasofts for the remaining 66 laps. Vettel followed suit with a pit stop on Lap 16 and retained a good margin over the Mercedes before Ricciardo made his single stop on Lap 17. The display eventually came back, but the tyre problems persisted and it soon became clear that only a mistake from the vehicle in front would result in an overtaking opportunity. "This is probably the most boring race ever".

Stoffel Vandoorne: "This was a disappointing race for me. Hence why it felt like a very long race but obviously we got it home".

Lance Stroll notified his team that he had something wrong with his auto, apparently completely failing to notice that he had a puncture and was driving round on a flat tyre.

"I only used six gears for the rest of the race". You don't get that many opportunities to win a Monaco GP. "A lot of Aussie flags on the in lap".

That VSC was caused by Charles Leclerc enduring a brake failure and steaming into the back of Brendon Hartley as they exited the tunnel, in a race that scarcely created drama and produced 19 finishers. The incident left debris scattered across the braking zone, but the marshals were able to clear the pieces of carbon fibre under a virtual safety auto, meaning a full safety vehicle - which would have allowed Vettel to close on the back of Ricciardo - was not required.

"I just didn't want to go to risky and have a crash".

Then the German had a problem with his dash going blank, which gave Lewis Hamilton a chance to put some pressure on.
