Sebastian Vettel admits that Daniel Ricciardo 'had all the answers'

Daniel Ricciardo victorious in Monaco F1 Grand Prix

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton finished third and still remains the overall leader in the drivers' championship.

Unsurprisingly there are a lot of perks for championship-winning Formula One drivers, even after they stop racing.

Vettel said: "I think we had the pace but it was a tricky race".

"It was two years in the making and I really feel that redemption has arrived", Ricciardo said after taking the checkered flag.

"We were just cruising around from lap six, literally cruising", the Englishman, who finished third, told reporters. Couple this with the difficulty required to make a pass in Monaco and you get exactly the kind of race we had on Sunday. A series of switch changes on Ricciardo's steering wheel helped manage the issue, while Vettel also suffered his own problems when his steering wheel display went blank on Lap 39.

US freedom of navigation operations are created to protest maritime claims that are excessive under worldwide law. American warships will continue to be deployed in the region "on an everyday basis", Pentagon spokesman Lt.

"We knew we wouldn't be the quickest here, just did the best we could", Hamilton said. It's the first race this season where the McLaren driver has failed to pick up points.

"I think today, because it's a tight circuit, you're able to take the p*ss a little bit with going slow", he claimed. I think he had a problem with his MGU-K, then it picked up towards the end again.

"I was going through the tyres fairly quickly. Otherwise it would have been nice to keep the pressure on".

However, they may be waiting to see how Vettel handles his title fight with Hamilton this season, after making crucial mistakes on the way to defeat past year. "I don't know how you did that", engineer Simon Rennie said to Ricciardo in congratulating him over the radio on the slowing-down lap, as quoted saying by BBC. He immediately fell into the clutches of Vettel, who went into full-on attack mode.

Sebastian Vettel is under contract at Ferrari until the end of 2020 but team-mate Kimi Raikkonen's deal expires this season. He tried without success through the rest of the race. Stroll would soon develop a puncture as a result of contact with Ericsson, and the Ricciardo-Vettel parade would have to dodge him on lap 10. It was yet another mistake from the Kiwi in what is becoming a run of missed opportunities for the Le Mans victor.

Trump still sees Jun 12 Singapore summit with Kim
He said he expects the talks to go smoothly because Pyongyang and Washington both know what they want from each other. Global journalists were present, but the US government can't verify the site's destruction.

"A tough old race out there", Hartley said.

"After the loss of power I thought the race was done, but I got home using just six gears".

"It wasn't where I wanted to finish, looking back on the whole weekend with the performance of the auto".

Despite running nose-to-tail though, the inability to follow closely meant none of the drivers had an opportunity to overtake and Hamilton was unhappy at how little he and the others were able to push. By the time Verstappen caught the Renaults, Carlos Sainz Jr. and Nico H├╝lkenberg had switched places to allow the latter to chase Pierre Gasly, whose performance was reminiscent of Toro Rosso-Honda's unprecedented pace in Bahrain.

Congress threatens to block deal between White House and China on ZTE
President Trump said Chinese leader Xi Jinping has personally asked him to intervene to help ZTE, and he has said that he would. The U.S. will instead require the company to pay a fine, install U.S. compliance officers and change board members.
