   Lewis Hamilton's hopes of a move to Ferrari could be scuppered by Vettel

Eric Boullier: "It's bitterly disappointing to be walking away from the most prestigious grand prix of the year with no points - but, sometimes, that's motor racing". "Two years in the making - I finally feel like the redemption has arrived".

After finding himself back on the Red Bull naughty step on Saturday, Max Verstappen admitted he opted for a cautious approach at the Monaco Grand Prix. We got home just using six gears.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, last year's race victor, finished second - easing off towards the finish to save the tyres - to cut Lewis Hamilton's overall lead to 14 points after six of 21 rounds.

"I think I can show more emotion today than yesterday", Ricciardo (pictured diving into the swimming pool to celebrate at the Red Bull Energy Station) said of his first win in Monaco.

A largely processional race - "boring" according to Hamilton, who said he would "have been asleep on the couch" if watching at home - saw a virtual safety auto needed in the closing laps.

Poor Ricciardo's loss of power a third of the way through the race was simply brutal for him.

China disinvited from U.S. military exercise
Logan added that Xi had broken a promise he made to the global community that China would not militarise the Spratly Islands. China had attended the exercises previously but has been kept out of the drill this year.

That VSC was caused by Charles Leclerc enduring a brake failure and steaming into the back of Brendon Hartley as they exited the tunnel, in a race that scarcely created drama and produced 19 finishers. Stroll would soon develop a puncture as a result of contact with Ericsson, and the Ricciardo-Vettel parade would have to dodge him on lap 10. We had to survive with that problem all race.

Vettel said it had been a tricky race and "Daniel had the answer at all times".

"We sent a statement on Thursday and have been quickest every session".

After the meeting, she told the Times that Weinstein put his hands on her and suggested they head to the bedroom for massages. Paltrow is among over eighty women who have accused the fallen producer of sexual assault, rape, or sexual harassment.

Lewis Hamilton kicked off the pit war with a stop after lap 12, emerging behind Esteban Ocon who allowed the Brit back past on lap 15 as Vettel dropped in for tires. He tried without success through the rest of the race. When we pitted early, I thought it was a two-stop but we were able to manage it. It was yet another mistake from the Kiwi in what is becoming a run of missed opportunities for the Le Mans victor.

The Brit knows he is in a much better place than he was at this time last season, as he has the lead in the title race. "I've done everything I can so far, let's finish this job tomorrow. There's a lot more work still to be done, but we head to Canada feeling confident that we're headed in the right direction".

Hartley's Toro Rosso teammate Pierre Gasly made the most of the pace his Honda-powered vehicle on a slower track, finishing an impressive seventh in his second point-scoring finish of the year.
