2017 Monaco GP

Post by The_Wall_91 on Tue May 16, 2017 7:33 pm

The second quarter of the season is kicked off with the biggest race on the calendar, the Monaco GP. A race won by champions, legends, heroes, and underdogs, this race is the crown jewel for any driver in F1. Lets get to some headlines entering Monaco.

Lewis vs. Sebastian

It has been a while but ladies and gentlemen, we have a title fight on our hands. Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel have been going toe to toe for the drivers title ever since race 1. With still 15 races left to go, this title fight is far from being over. We will find out whether Lewis will get #4 or if Sebastian will get #5.

The Iceman turns into the Caring Man

Kimi Raikkonnen had a rough Spanish GP, however, this is not the reason he earned more fans. During the broadcast, the cameras caught a young boy wearing Ferrari gear crying after his hero crashed out of the race. Ferrari noticed this young boy and gave him a lifetime of memories. He was given VIP access to meet members of the team including the Iceman himself.

Hello Sauber

Sauber has made some massive improvements since 2016. 2016 was a massive let down from 2015. This didn't deter to the Swiss team as they battled back for a well deserved weekend. An 11th place finish for Marcus Ericcson was overshadowed by the heroic 8th place effort by his teammate Pascal Wehrlein. Lets hope this is a sign of things to come for Sauber.

Can Force India Catch Red Bull?

Force India have obviously done something right with their car. A pink livery masks the speed that their car has. Force India is without a doubt the best midfield car in the field, but could they become a front runner? Red Bull has struggled from their 2016 success and they might get caught by the midfield if they don't get moving soon.

"I'll be Missing You"

One driver will be noticeably gone for this race. For those of you who might be living under a rock, McLaren's Fernando Alonso will be competing in the Indianapolis 500 for the first time in his career. With this void needing to be filled, McLaren replacement driver Jenson Button will return behind the wheel for the Monaco GP. I wish Jenson the best of luck in Monaco and I wish luck for Fernando in the Indianapolis 500.

Winners of the Monaco GP:

Ferrari: A 16 year drought was ended with a 1-2
Daniel Riccardo: A podium performance one year after the fail of 2016
Haas: Double points for the first time in their brief history
Sergio Perez: Broke the race lap record by running a 1:14.120
Fernando Alonso: At least you have a chance to finish a race today

Losers of the Monaco GP:

Sergio Perez: What the hell got in to you today?
Jenson Button: You should have stayed in retirement if you are going to make moves like that
Sauber and McLaren: Finish, finish, finish

Eh race for the first 60 and then got silly in the last 15 or so.

Ferrari's first win at Monaco since 2001 is a stat on paper that just sounds incorrect but i guess it happened. Congrats to Vettel.

Double Haas points is also pretty cool.

Ferrari was the team to beat all week. It would have been great to see Räikkönen bring home the victory after such a fantastic weekend for him, but at least he was still part of the first 1-2 for the prancing horses at Monte Carlo since 2001. It was also great to see Ricciardo on the podium and to see Haas achieve its first double points day, as well!
