Handicapped Daniel Ricciardo Holds on to Monaco Grand Prix Win

Monaco Grand Prix Red Bull

He is out of contract for 2019 and if he leaves Red Bull he can only sensibly move to Mercedes or Ferrari. "Of course not on every track we can show that potential because of the deficit on the straight but it's good to know we have a good auto".

A combination of the soft tyres, the ultra-tight nature of the Monaco street circuit and a lack of safety cars or incidents ensured that the race, while tense thanks to Ricciardo's problem, wasn't exactly a thriller to watch. "Let me know if you want me to do it!'" "I am pumped for this one".

The Dutch driver made the most of his auto advantage in the Principality, running a long first stint on the ultrasoft tyres before switching to the faster hypersofts for the closing stages. The popular Australian swan-dived into the swimming pool located on the roof of Red Bull's motorhome in Monaco's glitzy harbour.

It's clear that if Max Verstappen hadn't have started last, and if Ricciardo's race had been trouble free, such was the Red Bull's advantage in keeping the tyre surface largely intact in a very fast auto, they would have absolutely dominated the race.

It was his first Monaco victory, his second this season and the seventh of his career, but a landmark feat heralded by his team boss Christian Horner.

"This place bites", Horner told Channel 4.

"He is up to third and we have a very strong vehicle". He in a auto that is capable of winning this grand prix and that will hurt him even more.

Fernando Alonso termed the 2018 Monaco Grand Prix as the most boring race ever. He added: "He needs to learn from it, and stop making these errors. He knows that more than anybody". Could Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel survive without pitting for a second time?

In another case, involving a woman who has not been named, Weinstein faces charges that include first-degree rape . Evans told The New Yorker magazine he forced her to perform oral sex during a daytime meeting in his office.

Ricciardo came home 7.3 seconds clear of Vettel after 78 largely processional laps with championship leader Lewis Hamilton finishing third for Mercedes.

Daniel Ricciardo is out of contract with Red Bull at the end of the season and is yet to sign a new deal, leading to suggestions he could switch teams. "I've given it everything I could".

"I just didn't want to go too risky [on Sunday] and have a crash because I can not be in that position now".

Hamilton said Red Bull looked the best bet for Ricciardo but "it's important in a team that you are valued at what you are worth".

However, Hamilton doesn't see Ricciardo leaving Red Bull anytime soon.

Kimi Raikkonen finished fourth in the second Ferrari ahead of fellow Finn Valtteri Bottas in the second Mercedes and Frenchman Esteban Ocon, who was sixth for Force India.

The Australian topped every practice and qualifying session in Monte Carlo before nursing his wounded Red Bull over the line for his second victory of the campaign.
