In the winding streets of the legendary Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix, Daniel Ricciardo defeated his competition. Or rather, with his maneuvers and perfect driving, he proved to be worthy of victory. With a little exaggeration, we could say that he zoomed past the casino fastest. On the narrow and twisted circuit the engine power of a Mercedes or Ferrari is no advantage, but the strength of the Austrian team is its cornering.
Daniel Ricciardo reached the finish at 1:42:42.807, second was Sebastian Vettel with a loss of 7.336 seconds, and Lewis Hamilton came third with a loss of 17.013 seconds.
For Daniel Ricciardo, the luxurious race meant redemption. Deserved fruit after two years of effort, drudgery and hard work.

Vettel's response to Ricciardo's victory: "Daniel had answers during the entire race."
First a big congratulations to Daniel and the Red Bull team. "It would have been nice to have finished second, but I did everything I could. It was an interesting race," added Lewis Hamilton.
Great disappointment was experienced by Red Bull's Max Verstappen, a Dutch rider who started in the main race after the qualification from last place because he crashed during practice and damaged the gearbox. Another unfortunate situation was Leclerc's collision with Hartley in the main Sunday Grand Prix race, when Leclerc complained of poor braking performance. What's important is that they all came out without injuries.
Congratulations to Daniel Ricciardo on the success! Keep it up...
