Monaco Grand Prix 2017 live race updates

By Sportskeeda Desk | Last ModifiedMay 28, 2017 19:30 IST

Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari on the front row in p1 and p2!


19:30 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Kimi with his best Kimi-face there. But seriously, he looks quite angry. And we don't entirely blame him...

19:25 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Vettel widens his own championship lead here - he's now at 129 points, ahead of Lewis Hamilton in P2 with 104 - an entire race win's worth.

19:24 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Ferrari take the lead back from Mercedes in the constructors' championships with 196 points -. 17 ahead of Mercedes! 

19:22 (IST)28 MAY 2017

It's a 90th Ferrari 1-2 in F1.

19:20 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Daniel Ricciardo putting in a great ride there for P3 - and Lewis Hamilton finishes in P7 after a 13th place start. Great gutsy driving for him too.

19:20 (IST)28 MAY 2017

It's Vettel's THIRD win of 2017! 

19:19 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Kimi Raikkonen, polesitter, finishes in second - with Ricciardo in third! 

19:19 (IST)28 MAY 2017


19:16 (IST)28 MAY 2017

19:12 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Daniil Kvyat retires after contact with Perez. Perez meanwhile, tells Force India "You guys really want to **** with me? You really want me to crash?"

Williams' Lance Stroll done too.

19:10 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Perez is really, really angry. He takes the turn and there's contact between Perez and Kvyat! 

19:08 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Force India's Sergio Perez into the points in P10 behind Kvyat of Toro Rosso. Toro Rosso doing really well in the points here with Sainz in P6 consistently ahead of Hamilton.

19:08 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Unless there are any shock crashes - but those have just happened, of course - this should be your finishing grid.

19:07 (IST)28 MAY 2017

8 laps to go and it's looking like a Ferrari 1-2 with Ricciardo in P3. But RIC has already kissed the barriers once...

19:05 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Lewis is now 6.779 behind Sainz in P6. 

19:05 (IST)28 MAY 2017

19:05 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Stoffel Vandoorne ends his race as well. So much for McLaren fans hoping for finishes, if not points...

19:03 (IST)28 MAY 2017

And now both McLarens are gone. 

19:02 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Ericsson's had probably the silliest F1 crash in some time. He's crashed into the barriers following the safety car. How?

19:01 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Both Saubers out of the race now. After Wehrlein's crash Marcus Ericsson's done too.

18:59 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Safety car's out now. But lapped cars now allowed to overtake! 

18:58 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Williams' Lance Stroll is absolutely SHOUTING over the radio here. He's losing temperature on the brakes and quickly. 

18:55 (IST)28 MAY 2017

That's also ended Button's race though. 

18:53 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Shocking crash for Pascal Wehrlein. He's up against the barriers sideways - but DRIVER OK! 

18:51 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Cheeky from Pascal Wehrlein there... and a car has utterly FLIPPED there! 

18:50 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Strong rumours have pervaded that Vettel is contracted Number One driver for Ferrari. 

Today's pit strategy will only fan that flame.

18:49 (IST)28 MAY 2017

A small patch of refurbished tarmac on the 'offending' area - nothing glaringly bad. That said, we're looking for some fireworks between Red Bull drivers. 

18:47 (IST)28 MAY 2017

"Track breaking up in the exit of Turn 1" say McLaren to Button. That's a bit odd - and a bunch of punctures in the area. Is there a problem?

18:44 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Ricciardo up in P3 closing up the gap and then some. 

18:44 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Raikkonen 11s behind VET right now on equal stops. 

18:40 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Traffic! If you're in an Indian metro - or NYC, you're used to it! Not here. But there's a holdup there - and it's not helped Bottas very much. Verstappen gaining on Bottas' tail and given he's already angry, we reckon there are going to be some fireworks there.

18:37 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Vettel's lead goes from 1.6s to 5+ 9.768s . We reckon the win is sealed now. 

18:35 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Clean as you like! A 2.7s pit stop and Hamilton comes out in P7 - just ahead of Romain Grosjean of Haas! 

18:33 (IST)28 MAY 2017

47 laps in and Hamilton is to pit from P6! Moment of truth. 

18:33 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Overtaking is nigh impossible at Monte Carlo - meaning that a win hinges on qualifying and pit-stops. Unless you're Daniel Ricciardo in 2016, of course.

18:32 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Tell us - what do you think? Was Kimi's win unfairly taken from him?

18:31 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Meanwhile, McLaren's Stoffel Vandoorne pits from P7 and comes out in P10. Any points are welcome for McLaren here though.

18:28 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Max Verstappen is rather vocal with his displeasure. 

18:28 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Verstappen really ticked off with Ricciardo having pitted already. "Has Daniel pitted?" "Yes."

And Verstappen lets out quite the stream of expletives on radio here...

18:27 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Force India's Esteban Ocon has a puncture, puncture, puncture. Luckily he's at Rascasse near the pits and gets a new set. Out almost immediately.

18:25 (IST)28 MAY 2017

3.1s pit stop for Vettel here. Really, really fast. And he's done enough. He comes out in front of his Ferrari teammate

18:24 (IST)28 MAY 2017


18:23 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Ricciardo pits - and exits! Vettel takes race lead and Ricciardo exits the pits in P3 behind Kimi.

18:21 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Raikkonen's not given up at all. Sets the second fastest lap time of the race but he's still stuck in P3.

18:20 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Vettel's leading and yet to pit. We think he'll add on the pressure here. This move is a good one for Ferrari, but has Kimi Raikkonen just lost his lead for good? 

18:18 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Kimi comes out in P3. Bit of pressure here.

18:17 (IST)28 MAY 2017


18:17 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Bottas is now in the pits! Annnnnd he's out quick but behind Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull ! Max Verstappen just exiting Rascasse now and Bottas comes out JUST ahead of VER here! 

18:16 (IST)28 MAY 2017

Verstappen pits - and exits on a set of supersofts! A quick pit stop but the young Dutchman comes out in P6. Bottas instructed by Mercedes to "push harder, push harder."

18:12 (IST)28 MAY 2017

We're at lap 30 here and Hamilton is now in P10. STILL no pit stops.
