  2. Ricciardo fends off Vettel for Monaco win - read the report

    Daniel Ricciardo

    Daniel Ricciardo drove a masterful race to fend off Sebastian Vettel's Ferrari and win the Monaco Grand Prix in a stricken Red Bull.

    The Australian dominated the weekend and led from pole but shortly after his only pit stop suffered a power loss at one-third distance.

    Ricciardo managed to hold off Vettel for the remaining 50 laps, as Lewis Hamilton took third in his Mercedes.

    The result means Hamilton leads Vettel by 14 points in the championship.

    Ricciardo moves into third place, 38 points adrift.

  3. 'For a few seconds I wanted to close my eyes and start crying'

    Race winner Daniel Ricciardo: "I thought my race was over when I went down on power. I had half the power it seemed and I felt like it was going to come to a stop.

    "For a few seconds I just wanted to close my eyes and start crying. I was only using six gears, our car has eight. I had just enough power to get into sixth. We did it, but it sucked.

    "This was redemption, it's been two years in the making. I still don't know how we did it but we did. Now get me a drink."

  4. 'I was never a threat to him'

    Sebastian Vettel, who finished second: "I could see the light flashing on Ricciardo's car, which meant he was clipping. I tried to get close but getting too close doesn't help the tyres.

    "He was quicker than us, he was able to open a gap and I was never really a threat to him."

  5. 'I'd have been asleep on the couch for that race'

    Third-placed Lewis Hamilton, speaking to Channel 4: "A big congratulations to Daniel, I'm really happy for him because winning your first race in Monaco is really special.

    "The tyres were not great but we were all driving so slow. I was thinking while I was driving it was not an attacking race, we were just cruising. I will be shocked if anyone was awake at home while it was on, because I would have been asleep on the couch."

  6. Aussie success in Monaco

    Ricciardo's victory makes him just the third Australian to win the Monaco Grand Prix, after Mark Webber (2010, 2012) and Jack Brabham (1959, pictured)

  7. 'We keep working on our strengths'

    Fernando Alonso, who retired: "We'd secured seventh place already after the pit stops, we lost a little bit of points today but nothing we can do now. We keep working on our strengths."

  8. 'A shame at my home race'

    Charles Leclerc, who retired from the race after losing his brakes: "I had no brakes, it is just a shame because it happens at (my) home (race) but there were a lot of positives to take from this weekend and forget the negatives."

  9. 'I don't know how you did that, mate!' - Red Bull praise Ricciardo

  10. 'I was struggling too much'

    Carlos Sainz, who finished 10th after starting eighth: "A difficult race right from the beginning. We had a lot of graining on the front tyres, we had to stop very early. I was struggling too much out there."

  11. Mercedes 18 points clear

    This is how it stands in the constructors championship. Force India move up from seventh to sixth.

  12. Bottas' boring day

    Valtteri Bottas, who started and finished fifth: "In Monaco many things can happen, if nothing happens it can be really boring, like today.

    "Supersofts felt like the right tyre, but nothing I could do really."

  13. 'Great pace'

    Force India's Esteban Ocon, who finished sixth, speaking to Channel 4 says: "It was a fantastic result I have to say, great weekend overall.

    "Great pace with the car. When your engineer is telling you you are quickest on the track, it is probably the first time it happened this season! Fantastic, I look forward to many more weekends like that."

  14. How they stand - bottom 10

    The big jumper in the bottom 10 is Esteban Ocon. He started the day 17th in the championship but the eight points he gets for his sixth-placed finish takes him up to 13th.

    Sergey Sirotkin and Romain Grosjean remain the two without any points on the board. Both may well be getting very nervous on their F1 futures.

  15. 'I tried to make the best of it'

    Max Verstappen, speaking to Channel 4: "I enjoyed myself out there today. It was always going to be damage limitation. I tried to make the best of it, passing a lot of cars and really pushing the whole race. Carlos Sainz and I had a good fight and I managed to squeeze past him in the end.

    "I'm very happy for Daniel to win the race, it's always a special moment."

  16. How they stand

    This is how it stands in the drivers' championship after six of 21 races in the 2018 season.

  17. 'Super happy'

    Toro Rosso's Pierre Gasly, who finished seventh: "It was an amazing race, starting 10th I knew it was difficult but the car was just so fast. I could go flat out when I was alone on the track. We managed to finish P7 and I am super happy about it."

  18. 'That's Monaco'

    Brendon Hartley failed to finish after being hit by Charles Leclerc. Speaking to Channel 4, he said: "It was a tough old race starting from 15th. Damaged my front wing at the start which was annoying but we were holding on, pretty happy with the race.

    "I spoke to Charles and he said he lost the brakes. Pretty annoying but that's Monaco."

  19. 'I enjoyed myself'

    Max Verstappen, speaking to Sky Sports: "I was enjoying myself out there. I got two places at the start which was good and then managed to squeeze past a few more drivers.

    "We maximised the result. In the end it was a bit of a train from fourth to ninth."
