Hamilton calls for changes in Monaco

Hamilton calls for changes in Monaco

Do we change this great track and make it even better.

But after this year's race in Monte Carlo some drivers were left far from satisfied.

The New England Patriots quarterback was on the French Riviera for Sunday's Formula One Monaco Grand Prix.

Mercedes gambled as Q2 began by switching to "ultra-soft" tyres in order, potentially, to start the race on them. More so because of the nature of Monaco, where overtaking is next to impossible.

"He was stronger there and I couldn't follow". In fact, Ricciardo's "loss of power" radio message made us wonder if his winning in Monaco was jinxed!

An MGU-K failure early in the race meant Ricciardo lost 120kW (roughly 160bhp) of power from the energy recovery component, was forced to manage extreme rear brake temperatures and avoid using seventh or eighth gear.

For Ricciardo, this was his first win from pole position; by the way, he also topped all the official practice sessions before grabbing top honours on Saturday by managing to be the only driver to lap around the circuit in 1:10 seconds.

Immediately after the issue started, a series of frantic radio message were played over the F1 broadcast as the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel closed in on the leading Red Bull. Ricciardo, safe in the knowledge that the auto behind requires a significant pace advantage to make an overtaking move at Monaco, was able to hold on for victory. Was Ricciardo driving too slowly?

Hamilton is a Monaco resident and big fan of its grand prix but he feels F1 could do more to improve the spectacle and elevate its status as one of the calendar's premier weekends.

Chelsea owner Abramovich takes Israeli citizenship
Abramovich has been counted as one of the richest men in Britain since he bought the English Premier League football club in 2003. He is a frequent visitor to Israel and bought a hotel in Tel Aviv in 2015 that reports say he has turned into a residence.

Teams did not want to do multiple pit stops as it would have meant dropping behind other, slower cars, which they would not be able to pass no matter how much faster their auto.

"At the moment, [Ricciardo] is pretty much the lead driver in that team so it's not a bad place to be". Meanwhile, teammate Stoffel Vandoorne finished 14th behind Kevin Magnussen of Haas. Lap after lap, the two played cat-and-mouse, though Vettel endured a dash screen blackout on lap 41.

Hamilton has won the past two races and leads the championship by 17 points ahead of Vettel, who won the opening two races. This turned out to be Alonso's first DNF this season.

The driver removed his shoe on the winner's podium where Lewis Hamilton, who came in third place, was seen to fill Ricciardo's shoe with champagne, Ricciardo then proceeded to drink the bubbly from the shoe. "It was really good fun", said Rosberg after taking the eBike on a spin-a statement that speaks volumes based on who's making it.
