F1 2017 - Monaco GP


At the Monaco Grand Prix leg of this season's Formula One Championship, it seems that the one-two finish for Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen made this season even more interesting, perhaps pit strategy plays a crucial role at this race. Or maybe this one-two finish was just orchestrated by Ferrari themselves?

Whether the case that Ferrari orchestrated this driver-swapping tactic during pit stops that gained Vettel the edge to widen the gap against Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton, who finished in seventh place considerably, remains a case that needs to be answered, but behind Ferrari's controversial Monaco victory, there are some who couldn't made the cut at this year's Monaco GP such as Sauber's Pascal Wehrlein, who car was crashed through the barrier at Portier alongside Jenson Button, as well as McLaren's Stoffel Vandoorne, and Daniil Kvyat from Toro Rosso (who was crashed by Force India's Sergio Perez during an overtake at La Rascasse), among many others.

After the race, the gap between Vettel and Hamilton are now up to 25 points.

The next race is on Canada on the 11th of June.
