Mercedes restore order at top with Hamilton's win

Team mate Valtteri Bottas finished second, while Red Bull's Max Verstappen secured the final podium position.

"Why our vehicle doesn't like to be quick around the corners in Monaco we haven't found yet".

"Lewis was able to control the race and whilst we could have gone longer on that first stint, the front tyre was quite worn and we chose to stop as a precaution as there was no real threat from behind", he said. "This put Lewis behind [Max] Verstappen but we knew he had to stop so there was no urgency to pass".

The defending Formula One world champion was at his imperious best as he won by 20 seconds from Valtteri Bottas in a welcome one-two for Mercedes. However, the Finn is anxious that Mercedes' apparent resurgence at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya may prove short-lived. We have had other priorities in the last few weeks.

Then again, Red Bull can also never be discounted around the twisting streets of the Principality. While it was Ferrari dominating Q1 and Q2, the team bagged pole where it mattered the most which was in Q3.

"Hopefully we see some action and we take benefit from that".

Vettel will kick off proceedings in the Ferrari SF71H just two days after finishing fourth in Spain. But Mercedes officials and drivers are saying one race doesn't make a season. "We have seen there are tracks which suit us well and some that we are not ideal at".

Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes are not done just yet.

"We were expecting a two stop race today and when Vettel stopped on lap 17 we hoped to be able to overcut taking advantage of poor warm-up on the medium". Clearly the Ferrari was eating up its tyres more than the Mercedes, which is why the team felt the need to also do an extra pit stop. They later pitted one after the other giving back the lead to the Briton. At the same time, Fernando Alonso was delighting the home crowd with a bold outside pass on Ocon early in the race and pulled an epic move on rookie Charles Leclerc.

"It was feeling good until the end, when I looked up at the tower and my name did not go to the top". Why on earth he kept his foot hard on the throttle, spun back into the pack and created that smoke cloud I have no idea, but it was an extremely risky thing to do. It's the jewel in F1's crown, and Ferrari versus Mercedes versus Red Bull should be well and truly on.

On to Monaco next, where I've been this weekend driving at the Historic Grand Prix weekend in a Williams that Keke Rosberg won the race in back in 1983. In a way, while it was a shame for Nico Hulkenberg and Pierre Gasly, it was lucky that there weren't more cars wiped out in that or drivers injured.
