    Daniel Ricciardo all the way. Superb drive and composure keeping me on the edge of the seat all the way. Well, well, well deserved result.

    Would love to see that man in a Ferrari next season....

    Ricciardo, Leclerc - Ferrari
    Hamilton, Vettel - Mercedes
    Verstappen, Alonso - Red Bull

    Now that would be an epic 2019 grid... :D

    Voted Gasly (cause everybody will say Ricciardo), solid pace and great defense.
    [Off course, honestly the man of the day is Ricciardo...and Charles Milesi ;) ]

    Danny won,the tension was unbelievable with Danny’s car issues.

    To call this race boring is nonsensical.

    what an absolutely boring race. F1 and FIA have destroyed Formula One. This was Formula E with noise today.
    Today was a shame for this great race in Monaco.

    A boring race like this deserves no 'driver of the day', so a non-vote for me.

    Stroll shouldn't be in the poll as we can't call him a "driver".

    For me Pierre Gasly. Droven a very solid race. LeClerc was quite disappointing for torpedoing Hartley. But further... with these cars Monaco ain’t no fun.

    Monaco ,not a fast track is about the driver,not the speed of the car and Danny proved himself over the weekend with a flawless performance.

    Unless someone's heard otherwise, I am almost certain that was brake failure.

    Thank you for the info. Was watching the race without sound on (was at a party). So I wasn't aware of that. Than it's lucky for him he drove into Hartley to lose speed. But still very disappointing for Hartley. I already found it curious since LeClerc is doing quite a nice job generally.

    Do you happen to know what cause the brake failure? Or is it still unknown?

    Surprised to hear so many calling it a boring race - I thought it was quite good by Monaco standards (if you come in expecting much passing, you're almost sure to be let down). The Ricciardo story line made the race for me - getting screwed in '16 and then having to nurse a wounded car the majority of the race. That's good TV in my book, but everyone has their preferences, I suppose!

    Even Hamilton and Alonso called it boring, I saw. As far as Alonso goes, I suspect he is understandably frustrated by his cars always letting him down. With Hamilton, I tend to think he gets a little grouchy when he isn't at the center of attention - everyone fawning over Ricciardo probably makes him a bit grumpy.
