The sixth round of the 2018 Formula One season returns to Monaco, the second race of the European leg of the season and inarguably the most glamorous. The lap times are expected to tumble this weekend with Pirelli bringing the hypersoft tyre – the softest compound – for the first time this year.
Ricciardo and teammate Max Verstappen, who was nearly two tenths behind his teammate on the time sheet, were by far the quickest drivers over a single lap in Practice Two with the first non-Red Bull, Sebastian Vettel’s Ferrari, a distant 0.572 seconds adrift.
It would be hard to find a bigger contrast in moods than that between the two Red Bull drivers after qualifying at the Monaco Grand Prix.
Daniel Ricciardo’s neon grin was even bigger than usual after taking a pole position that, all things being equal, he ought to convert into an overdue first win around the streets of the Principality.
On the other side of the garage, Max Verstappen, who had been nip and tuck with Ricciardo throughout a weekend the team have dominated, looked like a child who had been told the dog had chewed his favourite toy.
Verstappen had not been able to take part in qualifying after a crash late in final practice. The team had got the car ready just in time, but then discovered a crack in the gearbox – presumably a result of the accident.
And now he starts from the back at a track on which, as Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel put it, “it’s nearly impossible to overtake”.
The concern for Verstappen is not so much that the crash happened at all – as he said himself, it’s “very easily done” in Monaco – it’s more that he keeps doing it so often.
