Vettel: Ricciardo had the answer at all times

Daniel Ricciardo after winning the 2018 Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix

"I don't know, we need to have a look at why I lost so much time".

Ricciardo spoke to his team on the radio complaining of a lack of power. Do we change this great track and make it even better. And on the racing drivers' point of view, we just weren't ever pushing.

Indeed the top six crossed the line in the order they qualified. While both Hulkenberg and Sainz put up a good team effort to keep Verstappen off limits on Lap 54, the Belgian passed Sainz on Lap 58 to take P9, and retained the position as Sainz couldn't catch up in the 78 lap race. More so because of the nature of Monaco, where overtaking is next to impossible. Then he was a bit stronger there and I couldn't follow.

Harvey Norman and JB Hi Fi buyers scored a front row seat at the Monaco Grand Prix after Lenovo and Hewlett Packard invested in thanking their partners and to top it off Australian F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo bought home a crippled auto to take victory. I think it was before halfway I felt a loss of power and I thought the race was done.

That Ricciardo could win from pole position in a auto that had had its power reduced by 25 percent confirmed both his maturing talent and the enforced tedious mediocrity of the racing.

It was the first time the Australian had won from pole position, his first triumph in the Mediterranean principality he also calls home and a fitting celebration for the former champions' 250th start.

The loud cheer that Daniel Ricciardo received as he walked on to the Red Bull Energy Station in Monaco's harbour was nearly enough to make you think he had won the whole championship. The hypersoft tyres offered a major pace boost in qualifying, but didn't last long during the race, forcing the frontrunners to pit relatively early.

Ricciardo dominated the whole weekend in Monaco, topping the three practice sessions and claiming pole position.

"The problems threw a lot of doubt in my mind for a few laps", said Ricciardo after his second win of 2018. Kevin Magnussen (DEN/Haas) 1:14.823, 14. The hypersofts were expected to last 22 laps, but Hamilton made a decision to do away with his after only 12 laps.

Ricciardo will be optimistic of grabbing his second win of the season, after victory in China last month, and seventh overall.

Two-time world champion Alonso, twice a victor on the narrow street circuit in the Mediterranean principality, was not the first or only driver to complain after a contest lacking incident and excitement. Were Ferrari attempting to use Raikkonen as a pawn to aid Vettel's race yet again? Would Max Verstappen do something rash?

Much attention focused on the Red Bull garage where a pack of mechanics worked to fix Verstappen's auto following his heavy crash in the closing minutes of final practice.

Ricciardo's advantage was slightly narrower than practice lap times had suggested, though, with Sebastian Vettel less than a quarter of a second adrift in second.

"It's got the biggest build-up", said Hamilton.

Could Daniel Ricciardo be leaving Red Bull?Could Ferrari take Ricciardo? He is driving really well this year and he doesn't seem to be ageing.

"Two years in the making this, so I finally feel like the redemption has arrived", said Ricciardo. Esteban Ocon (FRA/Force India) 23.667, 7.
