Vettel wins Monaco GP ahead of Ferrari teammate Raikkonen

The Italian team's domination that left Lewis Hamilton struggling to take 14th for Mercedes sparked celebration from the tifosi perched on terraces below the Monegasque palace. The collision made for the safety auto on track.

Ferrari has been quick all weekend and championship leader Sebastian Vettel starts on the front row alongside teammate Raikkonen. It was by no means flawless, but it was good enough and I am very happy with the auto.

Ferrari's Finnish driver Kimi Raikkonen took the pole position for the Formula One's Monaco Grand Prix after he led the official practices on Saturday.

Lewis Hamilton scoffed at the level of competition facing Fernando Alonso ahead of Sunday's Indy 500.Not long after this weekend's prestigious F1 race, Monaco Grand Prix absentee Alonso will. Renault's Jolyon Palmer finished 11th at Monaco ahead of the Force India drivers Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez, who could not manage to secure any points finishing 12th and 13th respectively.

Like Raikkonen, Vettel stressed that he and the "iceman" would be free to race and not constrained by team orders, in advance, at the first corner.

Manu Ginobili on retirement: 'It feels like they want me to retire'
Ginobili had 15 points and when Popovich subbed him out with two minutes to go the San Antonio crowd gave him a standing ovation. But Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said to credit talent as the sole reason behind Golden States current run is disrespectful.

"That last lap may have just got me into the top 10, but then I probably would have struggled to be in the top five, with the pace that I had, with whatever issue I was having in the vehicle", said Hamilton.

The safety vehicle intervention ended on lap 67/78, and upon restart, Ricciardo tagged the barriers at Ste Devote while battling with Bottas.

With Raikkonen as his rear gunner, Vettel had no problem retaining the lead when racing resumed and crossed the line 3.1s ahead of his teammate to take Ferrari's first one-two victory since 2010. Raikkonen, obediently, reminded reporters that both men raced for the same team - Ferrari. I haven't seen the big picture, I only know that we came second.

"And then we caught Jenson (Button) as well... so why we put me out in traffic when we knew we needed a hard out lap was a pretty obvious mistake". "There are cars in the past that have been attractive to drive and have been a lot easier to set up".

"Tomorrow's race will clearly be a case of damage limitation for him", Wolff said.

As a redshirt senior, he corralled 10 sacks, including a career-high and school-record four sacks against Iowa. Odenigbo was the first member of his family born in the US after his family emigrated from Nigeria.

Hamilton had a near miss early in Q2 when his auto wobbled at the Massenet turn and he complained of a lack of grip.

He also had two near-misses with the barriers on the circuit as he struggled to control his vehicle.

Despite that he looked on course to make the top 10 shootout until Stoffel Vandoorne's accident forced him to abandon his final flying lap.

"It was a little bit unfortunate with the yellow flag, but it doesn't really matter now if I could have gone faster", Hamilton said. With Bottas and Verstappen struggling to pass Sainz and losing time, Ricciardo was able to make the "overcut" work and pit later, emerging third. For him and for us.
