Daniel Ricciardo defies odds to lay Monaco ghost to rest

In a further boost for Ferrari, Kimi Raikkonen was fourth ahead of Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas.

The most eye-catching start came from the back of the grid where Max Verstappen, who had started last, made gains immediately as he went past both Haas drivers Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean. Between the transmission and engine faults, broadcasters reported Ricciardo as being down as much as 30 kilometers per hour (18 miles per hour) on the straights-a crippling weakness even at Monaco, which put him as much as 10 seconds per lap down on his record-setting 1:10.810 pole time.

"I know what I have to do and what not", said Verstappen.

"I spoke to Prince Albert and said that maybe we should make it longer", he said.

Hamilton added: 'What can we do to make this one better? I felt power loss and I thought the race was done.

"We were just cruising around from lap six, maybe", Hamilton told reporters. 'That was the most boring race I've ever participated in'. "It feels good, it feels good".

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton finished third and still remains the overall leader in the drivers' championship. After taking the chequered flag at the end of the race, Ricciardo sounded exasperated on the team radio before uttering the word "redemption" - summing up the importance of the victory to the Australian. "If I would have taken a bit more risk I don't think I would have got past the guys ahead of me".

"Firstly a big congratulations to Daniel and Red Bull", Hamilton said.

Brady spent a lot of time with fellow-TAG spokesman Daniel Ricciardo, who won the pole for the Monaco GP.

The 20-year-old Dutch driver will start from last place.

Red Bull's other driver Max Verstappen also put on an impressive show after failing to qualify due to work being on his vehicle to fix damage following a practice session crash.

Hamilton stopped as early as lap 12 and had to manage a set of ultrasofts for the remaining 66 laps.

Ricciardo's lap could become the stuff of F1 legend, as the cars are expected to be 1.5s per lap slower next year in the hope of improving overtaking.

Despite the loss of power, Ricciardo maintained a one-second lead over the Ferrari for the majority of the race - safe in the knowledge that the vehicle behind requires a significant pace advantage to make an overtaking move stick at Monaco.
