What happened at the Monaco Grand Prix? How did several drivers gain places at a circuit where passing is difficult at the best of times, let alone with the 2017 iteration of wider Formula One machinery? What makes Daniel Ricciardo so special in Monte Carlo? And did Ferrari lose the race with one driver so they could win it with another? (Answer: yes).
Here’s some answers courtesy of a chat with the 2017 Strategy Podcast: by Apex Race Manager, with the very affable Michael Lamonato as host. ‘Old mate’ gets a mention, and I even (sort of) praise Kimi Raikkonen, which happens as often as Monaco Grands Prix feature one breathtaking overtaking move after another.
