Red Bull's Monaco pace leaves Alonso "disappointed"

Daniel Ricciardo

Ricciardo's pole was his second in three years in the principality, the second of his career and also Red Bull's second of the V6 turbo hybrid era that started in 2014.

"I think the past couple of weeks we've made a small step forward, and I think there's a big push now in the factory to make even bigger gains over the next few weeks".

"This place bites and he got bitten pretty hard today in a session that doesn't really count for anything, other than setting the vehicle up", Horner told Channel 4. "He got bitten pretty hard today in a session that doesn't really count for anything except setting up the vehicle".

But could a team still protest against the Ferrari following this afternoon's Monaco GP, live on Sky F1 and Sky One with build-up from 12.30pm?

Between the lush streets of Monaco and the itty bitty inches between vehicle and barrier, you'll really gain some newfound appreciation for what these drivers do and are capable of.

"He needs to learn from it and stop making these errors".

"We knew more or less that the Red Bull was quite strong here, and favourites in a way", he said.


"Basically, the auto was sacked up and then we saw an oil leak in the gearbox which had been hidden by a shroud and that was it so then they did their best to try and get the gearbox replaced which would have been a five-place penalty".

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. For Hamilton, half the battle will be keeping Vettel at bay in the overall standings, in which the British Mercedes driver leads his Ferrari rival by 17 points.

"Well, Daniel's been on it all weekend", said Horner.

"Obviously we've been chasing that pace all year long. I don't think Red Bull have tried the other tyres yet so it will be interesting to see how we all go".

Vettel, whose team mate Kimi Raikkonen starts fourth and ahead of Mercedes's Valtteri Bottas, said Ricciardo had "owned" the qualifying session. Just before the incident he had to negotiate his way around the slow-moving Renault of Carlos Sainz, but said that was no excuse for the mistake.

Ricciardo posted two laps quick enough for pole position in Q3 - his fastest, a 1:10:810, marked another new track record, and came during his first run.
