Sebastian Vettel delivered Ferrari their first Monaco Grand Prix in 16 years on Sunday with teammate and pole sitter Kimi Raikkonen in second.

Vettel’s third win of 2017 increased his lead over Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton in the drivers’ world championship to 25 points.


Behind the two Ferraris came the Red Bull of Daniel Ricciardo with Hamilton’s teammate Valterri Bottas’s Merecedes in fourth.

DRIVER OF THE DAY

Hamilton started in 13th but the three-time former champion fought his way through the pack to claim seventh place.

Despite being a two-time winner in Monaco, but the 32-year-old mysteriously struggled with the handling of his Mercedes car this weekend.

Following his troubled performance in qualifying, he had it all to do on Sunday at a track where it is virtually impossible to overtake and he exceeded expectations.

FASTEST LAP

 

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT

Jenson Button, replacing Fernando Alonso for this race only in the McLaren, was always towards the rear of the field before colliding with Pascal Wehrlein on lap 68.

Button, in what is likely to be his last race, retired having sustained significant damage to the front left of his McLaren following the crash. What made it all the more disappointing was that he had a few good overtakes in the race before that collision.

ONE TO WATCH

On his Monaco debut with Force India, Esteban Ocon gave himself a mountain to climb after crashing out in the final session of qualifying on Saturday.

However, despite starting in 15t, he put in a fine performance to finish in 10th place.
