The first half of the Monaco Grand Prix was, let’s face it, a bit dull, but things picked up as the race started to unravel. One-stop strategies were the norm, and the pit stop action allowed Vettel to get ahead of Räikkönen, and Ricciardo to get ahead of both Bottas and Verstappen. Thus it was Ferrari and Ricciardo that took to the podium once the chequered flag was waved.

The second half of the race brought a touch of chaos though, as Button collided with Wehrlein, pushing the Sauber on to its side against the barrier. Thankfully he was unharmed. Ericsson managed to crash under the safety car. Kvyat and Pérez collided, whilst Stroll retired before the end of the race. Hamilton survived it all to finish seventh, whilst both Haas drivers finished in the top ten for the first time.
