Monaco Grand Prix 2017 live race updates

Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari on the front row in p1 and p2!
Updated: 28 May 2017 19:30 IST - Published: 28 May 2017 17:23 IST
...
Kimi with his best Kimi-face there. But seriously, he looks quite angry. And we don't entirely blame him...
...
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.
...
Ferrari take the lead back from Mercedes in the constructors' championships with 196 points -. 17 ahead of Mercedes! 
...
It's a 90th Ferrari 1-2 in F1.
...
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.
...
It's Vettel's THIRD win of 2017! 
...
Kimi Raikkonen, polesitter, finishes in second - with Ricciardo in third! 
...
And it's all over! SEBASTIAN VETTEL WINS THE MONACO GRAND PRIX! 
...
...
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.
...
Perez is really, really angry. He takes the turn and there's contact between Perez and Kvyat! 
...
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.
...
Unless there are any shock crashes - but those have just happened, of course - this should be your finishing grid.
...
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...
...
Lewis is now 6.779 behind Sainz in P6. 
...
...
Stoffel Vandoorne ends his race as well. So much for McLaren fans hoping for finishes, if not points...
...
And now both McLarens are gone. 
...
Ericsson's had probably the silliest F1 crash in some time. He's crashed into the barriers following the safety car. How?
...
Both Saubers out of the race now. After Wehrlein's crash Marcus Ericsson's done too.
...
Safety car's out now. But lapped cars now allowed to overtake! 
...
Williams' Lance Stroll is absolutely SHOUTING over the radio here. He's losing temperature on the brakes and quickly. 
...
That's also ended Button's race though. 
...
Shocking crash for Pascal Wehrlein. He's up against the barriers sideways - but DRIVER OK! 
...
Cheeky from Pascal Wehrlein there... and a car has utterly FLIPPED there! 
...
Strong rumours have pervaded that Vettel is contracted Number One driver for Ferrari. 

Today's pit strategy will only fan that flame.
...
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. 
...
"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?
...
Ricciardo up in P3 closing up the gap and then some. 
...
Raikkonen 11s behind VET right now on equal stops. 
...
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.
...
Vettel's lead goes from 1.6s to 5+ seconds...to 9.768s . We reckon the win is sealed now. 
...
Clean as you like! A 2.7s pit stop and Hamilton comes out in P7 - just ahead of Romain Grosjean of Haas! 
...
47 laps in and Hamilton is to pit from P6! Moment of truth. 
...
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.
...
Tell us - what do you think? Was Kimi's win unfairly taken from him?
...
Meanwhile, McLaren's Stoffel Vandoorne pits from P7 and comes out in P10. Any points are welcome for McLaren here though.
...
Max Verstappen is rather vocal with his displeasure. 
...
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...
...
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.
...
3.1s pit stop for Vettel here. Really, really fast. And he's done enough. He comes out in front of his Ferrari teammate
...
VETTEL PITS! 
...
Ricciardo pits - and exits! Vettel takes race lead and Ricciardo exits the pits in P3 behind Kimi.
...
Raikkonen's not given up at all. Sets the second fastest lap time of the race but he's still stuck in P3.
...
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? 
...
Kimi comes out in P3. Bit of pressure here.
...
RACE LEADER KIMI IN THE PITS! 
...
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! 
...
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."
...
We're at lap 30 here and Hamilton is now in P10. STILL no pit stops.
