Daniel Ricciardo grabs pole in F1 Monaco qualifying
29 May, 2018, 07:30 | Author: Brenda Erickson
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner has heaped praise on Ricciardo's performance in Monaco and compared it to Michael Schumacher's famous 1994 Spanish Grand Prix drive to second, where the German's vehicle was stuck in fifth gear.
Indeed, the Briton, who has criticised the proposed layout for the Miami Grand Prix, offering his services as a consultant in terms of an alternative, suggests that Monaco too needs changes.
Indeed the top six crossed the line in the order they qualified. When the VSC ended, Vettel suddenly found himself left behind.
Red Bull's other driver Max Verstappen also put on an impressive show after failing to qualify due to work being on his auto to fix damage following a practice session crash. "It was the longest 78 laps of my life!"

Behind him was Kimi Raikkonen in the second Ferrari, followed by Valtteri Bottas in fifth place, but neither drivers could pass Hamilton in the latter stages of the race to take on the race leader. This was Vettel's first podium appearance after winning the opening two rounds of the season.
"We were just cruising around from lap six, literally cruising", the Englishman, who finished third, told reporters.
Pole-sitter Ricciardo got off to a clean start and managed to maintain his lead ahead of Vettel and Hamilton.
Back to Verstappen - does the Dutchman need to introspect about his driving? Refreshing! Red Bull know how to celebrate in style. If Verstappen is a definite long-term investment that will yield World Championships, Ricciardo's short-medium term potential is definitely something the team can't ignore. "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. However, calls to demote Verstappen a la Kvyat style seems a bit over the top! Pierre Gasly (FRA/Toro Rosso) 24.331, 8. Esteban Ocon (FRA/Force India) 23.667, 7.
Fernando Alonso was another driver who also reported problems before a gearbox issue finally forced him out of the race. "It was the least interesting race". A late virtual safety auto to clear debris from a collision between Charles Leclerc and Brendon Hartley worked in Ricciardo's favour and gave him a five-second buffer over Vettel for the final four laps. The other was also in Monaco, two years ago. Daniel Ricciardo embraces his mother Grace following his maiden Monaco victory.
