Sebastian Vettel happy racing alongside Kimi Raikonnen at Ferrari

Ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix this weekend the four-time Ferrari world champion was asked about teaming up with Hamilton at Ferrari, insisting he would welcome his rival.

FORMER Red Bull driver Mark Webber believes Sebastian Vettel would block Lewis Hamilton from joining him at Ferrari. Much of the race was dictated Daniel Ricciardo's wounded vehicle at the front, which had been down on power due to an MGU-K issue. A late virtual safety auto to clear debris from a collision between Charles Leclerc and Brendon Hartley worked in Ricciardo's favour and gave him a five-second buffer over Vettel for the final four laps.

Hamilton expressed his delight that the race had ended once he crossed the chequered flag before saying he was bored throughout the encounter.

With Hamilton persevering with to stall over a brand new contract at Mercedes, hypothesis is rife about his future, even whether it is anticipated he'll prolong his keep.

Vettel, whose teammate Kimi Raikkonen starts fourth and ahead of Mercedes's Valtteri Bottas, said Ricciardo had "owned" the qualifying session.

The Spaniard's race came to a premature end while running in seventh place due to a gearbox issue.

Renault's Nico Hulkenberg was the fastest driver in Q2 and will be starting 11th, a tenth of second behind Gasly.

Symptoms include fatigue, fever, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay-colored stools and yellowing of the eyes and skin. Eight food establishments in Kanawha, Putnam, and Cabell counties have had a food service worker diagnosed with hepatitis A.

Ricciardo's Dutch team mate Max Verstappen, who started last after crashing in Saturday's final practice, stayed out of trouble and stood out for the right reasons with impressive overtakes to finish ninth.

"It's frustrating with such a fast auto not to have both cars on the front row of the grid".

The result means that Hamilton still tops the drivers' championship but sees his lead over Vettel cut to 14 points. That is a question for him, and whether he wants to continue racing or change teams. You have got to take the attrition out of it by qualifying on pole and controlling the race yourself. The display eventually came back, but the tyre problems persisted and it soon became clear that only a mistake from the auto in front would result in an overtaking opportunity.

It was only the second time in his career the Red Bull driver had taken pole position, his last coming at the same race in 2016.

In the circumstances, Horner said Ricciardo's performance - in Red Bull's 250th race - was "unbelievable". "I don't know how much of the radio was broadcast, but we had a lot to deal with during the race".

Stoffel Vandoorne: "This was a disappointing race for me. Hence why it felt like a very long race but obviously we got it home".

"Basically, the vehicle was sacked up and then we saw an oil leak in the gearbox which had been hidden by a shroud and that was it so then they did their best to try and get the gearbox replaced which would have been a five-place penalty. We won Monaco. It feels good". "A lot of Aussie flags on the in lap".
