Nico Rosberg retains the title leadership and his team-mate Lewis Hamilton keep second position just four points behind in drivers’ championship. Daniel Ricciardo is fourth on 54 points and third in the Monaco Grand Prix.
Nico Rosberg, who won the race: “It’s another special day for me, for sure. Lewis drove well and pushed me massively hard. The pressure was on but I kept it cool and pulled a bit of a gap at the end because of the refreshed tyres. Thanks to the team for all their great work.”
Lewis Hamilton, who finished second: “It was just something that came through the visor. – it was nothing important. It was a good day for us – it’s very important for the team to get another 1-2. I had great pace and I felt I was strong but it’s incredibly difficult to overtake.”
Daniel Ricciardo, who finished third: “It’s really nice to be on the podium. The start was not great, it was frustrating. Sebastian had a problem and I got fourth, then Raikkonen had a puncture so we inherited third. At the end, we closed in on Lewis. We tried to put pressure on but third was best we could do.”
