- From the section Formula 1
Lewis Hamilton is visibly distraught after a strategic error by his Mercedes team denies him victory at the Monaco Grand Prix.
Hamilton controlled the race until Mercedes pitted him after a late safety car came out following Max Verstappen's crash. When he rejoined he was unable to regain the positions he lost to team-mate Nico Rosberg and Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who both did not pit.
After crossing the finish line, Hamilton slowed to a stop at the Portier corner - which faces out to the Mediterranean Sea - seemingly to gather his thoughts, before knocking over his 'third place' parking board with the front of his Mercedes.
