Race results - Monaco Grand Prix 2017 - Strategy calls favour Vettel and Ricciardo in Monaco

Strategy calls favour Vettel in Monaco
Credit: Ferrari Media

Sebastian Vettel had to be patient and put the hammer down at exactly the right time to move into the lead of the Monaco Grand Prix, and that's exactly what he did, taking over from Ferrari teammate Kimi Räikkönen to secure a Ferrari 1-2. Daniel Ricciardo had a similarly favourable strategy that saw him on the podium, with Bottas missing out in fourth. Hamilton reclaimed some positions to move into 7th but was unable to climb any further.

Retirements included Nico Hülkenberg, who had a Renault gearbox failure, as well as Wehrlein and Button who collided in terrifying fashion, but both were okay. Marcus Ericsson and Stoffel Vandoorne both had innocuous battles with the barriers, whilst Stroll retired in the garage rather than out on track.
