F1 Report: Monaco GP Review

Natalie Pinkham is joined by former Ferrari driver Derek Bell and sportscar racer Jonny Adam to look back at Daniel Ricciardo’s against-the-odds win at the Monaco GP and ask whether it’s time for F1’s most-famous race to be altered.

Just how good was Daniel Ricciardo’s first Monaco GP win and what does it mean for his season – and the Australian’s F1 future?

Watch another bumper F1 Report in the video above as Natalie Pinkham is joined in the studio by former Ferrari driver Derek Bell and sportscar racer Jonny Adam to review all the biggest talking points from Monte Carlo.

Ricciardo was victorious after battling engine problems on his Red Bull for over 50 laps to fend off Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton and claim “redemption” for his 2016 heartbreak.

The panel analyse how impressive the Australian’s performance was, given the MGU-K issue left him down 25 per cent on power, and what the victory means for his title ambitions as well as his stock in negotiations over a 2019 drive.

Ricciardo’s team-mate Max Verstappen’s weekend was ruined by a Practice Three crash which forced him to miss qualifying, the 20-year-old ultimately coming through the field from last to ninth.

Ex-F1 driver Bell discusses whether the crash cost him victory on Sunday, while both panellists look at whether the Dutchman needs to change his style of driving.

Also up for analysis on the F1 Report: Monaco Review:

*The impressive performances from Esteban Ocon, who was sixth in the Force India in both the race and qualifying, and Pierre Gasly who was just a place behind his compatriot on Sunday.

*The crash between Charles Leclerc and Brendon Hartley, and what the future may hold for both drivers.

*The announcement following Monaco that Ferrari’s head of vehicle project co-ordination, Simone Resta, is moving to become Sauber’s technical director.

*And with just over two weeks until Fernando Alonso takes part in the Le Mans 24 Hours, five-time winner Bell and 2017 champion Adam offer advice on how the Spaniard can be victorious on his first attempt at the historic event.
