‘Ricciardo was let down for a second race in a row’
His pole position lap was stunning, he led the race with ease in the wet and then reeled in Hamilton after switching to intermediates. But for the second race in the row, it was factors outside of his hands that cost the Australian a victory when his Red Bull team didn’t have a set of tyres ready for the Australian to use. “Two weekends in a row now I’ve been screwed, it sucks,” he said. Hard to disagree.
Lewis Hamilton’s second Monaco Grand Prix victory was his fifth in the Principality. He won twice in European Formula 3 and once in GP2 (above with ART Grand Prix in 2006) prior to stepping up to F1 the following year.
