Lewis Hamilton: Mercedes must solve tyre problem quickly to challenge Vettel

Lewis Hamilton: Mercedes must solve tyre problem quickly to challenge Vettel

Sebastian Vettel won and Kimi Raikkonen finished second, and this was the 90th time in history that Ferrari achieved a "one-two" victory, and the first one after 7 long years. "There was no plan whatsoever to get Sebastian ahead", a Ferrari spokesman was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

The next race is the Canadian GP in two weeks' time, and all eyes will be on Mercedes in practice and qualifying.

Things nearly changed late in the race when on lap 61 of the Grand Prix Jenson Button, in his last race ever, sent 22-year-old Sauber driver Pascal Wehrlein airborne and his auto onto its side against the fence at Portier.

Kimi Raikkonen, the Finnish team mate who had led from pole for almost half the race, stared straight ahead and set about glugging the champagne as soon as he could.

"Of course ultimately I lost a lot of points today but looking at it as one race, and as a whole today, I came here starting 13th".

"I was called in and that's about it", Raikkonen said of the tactics.

"I like the notion of underdog, as because the underdog is people obviously want to see win", Wolff said. It's an interesting thought: "is Raikkonen more likely to be a Ferrari driver in 2018 because of events this weekend in Monaco or less?"

"I haven't spoken to the team and don't plan to", Hamilton added.

Grand Theft Auto V Surpasses a Whopping 80 Million Units Sold
Fans are starting to wonder if the only way to actually see another Grand Theft Auto game is for GTA V to actually stop selling. More than three years on and it seems enthusiasm for the title is still continuing with over 80 million units shipped.

What is apparently clear is that Ferrari has definitely moved ahead of Mercedes in the pecking order.

On a circuit noted for the extreme difficulty it presents for overtaking, Hamilton was lucky simply to scrape into a points-paying result. There might be some things along the way positioning wise which, at some stage, become valuable, but - who knows? - it might go the other way and I might need to give Valtteri the upper hand. "That conflict is positively heating up but the suggestion that Ferrari manipulated the strategy to ensure the result suggests a potential cold war within the team". At some point I was thinking, 'there must be a Safety Car, ' and then it came at the end, when I didn't really need it, but fine.

"They (Ferrari) are finally where we were back in the days that you finished one-two and then you have to explain why the right guy won", he said with a smile.

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany, in front of Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen of Finland sprays champagne on the podium after winning the Formula One Grand Prix at the Monaco racetrack in Monaco, Sunday, May 28, 2017.

"If I had the choice, going in the pits first is maybe what you like to do".

"Our target would be that it's the worst race of the season hopefully, an outlier like we've had in Singapore". I was surprised myself. "There's so many things we have got to look into to try to understand why one auto could make it work and the other couldn't".

"Today it worked in my favour and I take it, but we are a team and I can see Kimi is not happy".
