In Pictures: Monaco 2017

First win at Monaco since 2001 for Ferrari!

Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel won the Monaco Grand Prix after running a longer first stint than his team mate Kimi Raikkonen at a quicker pace, who qualified on pole and finished second.

The same ‘overcut’ strategy was also used by Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo to make up two places from his grid position and claim a podium finish.. Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen rounded up the top five.

The race had a high level of attrition, and a freak accident between McLaren’s Jenson Button and Pascal Wehrlein, who’s Sauber C36 ended up on its side with Wehrlein trapped between the car and the barrier for a few minutes. As a precaution, the German was taken to the medical centre, but was luckily uninjured.

I am feeling okay after the accident. I could get out of the car by myself and went for the usual medical examination. As my head touched the barriers, it will be decided within the coming days if I need another medical investigation, also because of the previous thoracic vertebra injury. I am very upset as this is a result of an unneccesary overtaking manoeuvre, bearing in mind that Jenson and I were both on a similar strategy with the pit stop in the first lap, far off from points; an annoying incident which should not have happened.
