Monaco GP 'wasn't really racing' - Lewis Hamilton

We got it back.

Hamilton and Ricciardo, along with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, have claimed two victories apiece this season, although it is the Mercedes driver who now leads the world championship by 14 points from Vettel and 38 from Ricciardo.

"You have done an fantastic job today", team boss Christian Horner said after Ricciardo took the chequered flag 7.3 seconds clear of Vettel.

Ricciardo's first Monaco GP victory was one to savour - a triumph against adversity.

"I believe we had the tempo, but it surely was a tough race", admitted Vettel. "I was 10 seconds behind, but I was conflicted because in my heart I wanted to win this race, but the team just asked me to bring the auto home".

Eventually, both would also move onto the Ultrasoft tyre but it was shortly after that the Red Bull driver would report a loss of power and face being some 20kph slower on the straights. "You just need to keep it smooth, keep focused".

"Will it get better?" the Australian asked.

From then on, Ricciardo - with Vettel looming in his rearview mirrors - was a model of consistency on a track where overtaking is a challenge for even the greatest of talents.

Equally if a gap appears in the traffic behind, teams may try the undercut the auto in front by making a stop for fresh tyres and filtering their driver into clear air for a qualifying-style blast between the barriers before their rival reacts with a pit stop the next lap. "I got home just using six gears", Ricciardo told reporters later. I don't know if that was exciting for you guys to watch.

"Two years in the making and I finally feel redemption has arrived", Ricciardo said.

"I think we had the pace but it was a tricky race so I think Daniel had the answers at all times", said Vettel.

Ricciardo's teammate, Max Verstappen, recovered from the back of the grid to finish ninth, having missed qualifying due to a crash in final practice.

A largely processional race - "boring" according to Hamilton, who said he would "have been asleep on the couch" if watching at home - saw a virtual safety vehicle needed in the closing laps.

Ricciardo did simply that, having dominated all of the follow classes earlier than claiming the second pole place of his profession Saturday.

Ferrari's other driver, Kimi Raikkonen of Finland, is to start from the second row, as he finished fourth with a time of one minute, 11.266 seconds, while his countryman Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) came fifth.

French driver Esteban Ocon took his Force India to sixth place, ahead of compatriot Pierre Gasly in a Toro Rosso and Renault's Nico Hulkenberg.

Ricciardo had already smashed the all-time track record repeatedly in practice before qualifying in 1:10.810. "For sure what we take today is the points".
