Raikkonen takes pole for Monaco GP; Hamilton finishes 14th

Hamilton endured two hairy moments where he nearly collided with the barriers, first at Massenet and then at Mirabeau, before he claimed something was not right with his Mercedes vehicle.

The safety auto was deployed, and when Wehrlein's vehicle was rolled back on to its four wheels by the marshals, the 22-year-old mercifully emerged without any obvious injury.

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany celebrates with his teammate Kimi Raikkonen of Finland, left, after winning the Formula One Grand Prix at the Monaco racetrack in Monaco, Sunday, May 28, 2017. "I was very happy with the auto".

Ferrari will start the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday with Kimi Raikkonen in pole position and championship leader Sebastian Vettel next to him.

Button's crash with Wehrlein was the major talking point of a largely processional affair here at the principality, which ended with Vettel moving 25 points - the equivalent of a race victory - clear of Hamilton in the championship race.

"But it was still a bit tricky in places and quite hard to get a lap together". Very close to second place.

Should Raikkonen maintain his position, he would win his 21st race and his first since driving for Lotus during the season-opening Australian Grand Prix in 2013. It was redemption for the Finland global who had finished behind his teammate Sebastian Vettel in every qualifying session thus far but came on top by the split of a second across the legendary street circuit.

"It's disappointing for me, because obviously it's not so easy for me to back him up, and score those points for the team, and I feel that for the team". We stand together. And tomorrow I will try everything I can to get up as high as possible.

"We know what we are doing, we are racing for the team and we have certain rules and respect against each other", said the Finn. "There are cars in the past that have been handsome to drive and have been a lot easier to set up".

"Tomorrow's race will clearly be a case of damage limitation for him and trying to maximise his points score".

Verstappen was fastest in Q1 and Hamilton an ominous 10th. Hamilton complained that his rear tyres were overheating and was only 10th, six-tenths off the pace.

Hamilton is set to start tomorrow's race from a lowly 13th after a bizarrely off-colour performance in which he struggled for balance with the handling of his vehicle. But Hamilton was arguably too far behind to reach the top 10 shootout.

"Other than that.not much I can say about it". He has placed in the top two in all five races, winning in Australia and Bahrain. Then, not one to let a good thing go unruined, Stoffel Vandoorne sent his McLaren careening into the wall during qualifying, to make sure the session wasn't a complete success. We made some changes for FP2, some mechanical changes, and went in the wrong direction - Lewis as well.
