Not all smiles at Ferrari as Raikkonen unhappy with team

Not all smiles at Ferrari as Raikkonen unhappy with team”

Lewis Hamilton has said he is determined to solve the problems that have stymied his bid for a fourth Formula One world championship after a hard weekend at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Vettel jumped team-mate Kimi Raikkonen during the pitstops to win the Monaco Grand Prix, after being left out for five more laps than the Finn when they took their only tyre changes in the race. Kimi Raikkonen made an unnecessary pit stop at lap 34 which helped Vettel to build a 10 second lead within 8 laps. Both Vettel that Raikkonen is due and the German, who has repeatedly reiterated that he wanted to be the champion with Ferrari, appears set to extend his marriage with the Italian brand. The race restarted on Lap 67 with Vettel now in the lead and the it was no looking back for the German.

And so it proved. It was clear that, I think they had the same plan to be honest so the lead vehicle normally gets priority so if I had a choice at that point, sitting behind Kimi, if I was going in the pits first, that's maybe what you like to do, because you are sooner on the fresher tires so I think it's probably one of the rare occasions where the over-cut turned out to be positive, so I'm really glad I made that work. "We've just got to make sure we're ahead of them so we don't need to be in the same scenario that they're in today".

Vettel agreed with his boss that Ferrari's pit strategy simply happened to work out in his favour.

"I can stop the auto if I like as I am driving it, but we work as a team and if you don't believe what you have been told, or how it works, it will get very complicated. So, what they have done is very clear".

Vettel, who claimed Ferrari's first victory on the Cote d'Azur in 16 years, now has the buffer of a race victory over Hamilton in this year's see-saw title battle.

Hamilton had a forgettable weekend in Monaco.

Australia's Daniel Ricciardo snagged a spot on the podium after a rough start to the weekend, while Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton climbed to finish seventh after a series of his own qualifying woes.

"Of course I can't afford another weekend like this", Hamilton said. There's no point dwelling on the fact you can not afford it, you just work towards trying to rectify whatever issues you have and hope you do not come across it again.
