Ricciardo takes pole position for Monaco GP ahead of Vettel

Ricciardo, 28, is yet to open his winning account at his adopted home, but should have taken to the top step of the podium here two years ago. "You go there (to the casino) to lose money.it doesn't make sense", the three-time race victor said.

Such a gap seemed unimaginable in the past, but improved cars, track surfacing and tyres have made it possible and the Red Bull raced around Monte Carlo as if it was on rails. Naturally, the usually laid-back Ricciardo was seething.

"I've done everything I can so far so let's finish this job". "It's the one that got away and I am still looking for some payback on that". "It is not going to happen because it should have already". It [Vettel and Ricciardo together] worked at Red Bull, didn't it, for one year. "It was expected here, they have a stronger downforce than anybody else". Since the wider cars were introduced previous year, overtaking that was already difficult has become even harder around the tight streets of Monte Carlo, and that means the order in which the cars exit Ste Devote on the opening lap will likely set the tone for the entire race.

Red Bull have been the class of the field in the Principality all weekend and if Ricciardo can get away well at the start and retain the lead then he will have every chance of securing a seventh grand prix victory.

"I think this weekend here in Monaco is a very elegant Grand Prix and I don't know how women feel about it, I've not really ever spoken to them about how they feel about the situation so".

"But I have to complement all the guys in the garage, with both vehicle crews doing their best to get him out in that session, but unfortunately that wasn't to be".

By contrast, his teammate Daniel Ricciardo starts in pole position.

First practice, running on Thursday as per tradition, was not 20 minutes old when the Russian found a wall.

It came after Ricciardo taught Toro Rosso driver Pierre Gasly a thing or two about Australian culture, with the Frenchman getting a lesson in how to handball an Aussie Rules footy.

"RCS Sport [race organisers] believe that in this specific moment it is more of a temporary trend to remove them from sport events", he said. "I don't like gambling". I think they look handsome.

"You go there to lose money".

Sebastian Vettel and joked about the rival pair potentially teaming up at Ferrari ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix.

With race strategy in mind, it was a risk worth taking, but it almost blew up in their face―both Hamilton and Bottas were so far off the pace they had to return to the garage and shift strategies at the last minute.
