Wounded Daniel Ricciardo wins Monaco Grand Prix as Brendon Hartley crashes out

Ricciardo will have Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton in his mirrors though, poised to capitalise on any mis-steps on a street circuit where overtaking is always tricky.

"We just start in our qualy position and we run until the chequered flag in that position", said Alonso, who retired with a gearbox problem while running in seventh position.

Ricciardo was told by his race engineer the problem would not improve, with the Australian left to try to cope with his auto with still over half of the race left to go. Before the half way, I felt a loss of power and I thought the race was done.

Vettel had no response for Ricciardo's time despite improving on his second attempt in Q3 to move ahead of championship leader Hamilton, who did not improve on his second flying lap. Kimi Raikkonen, who took pole position previous year, had to settle for fourth place, just 0.034s off Hamilton and 0.175s clear of the second Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas.

Ricciardo is confident with how Red Bull fared in the race simulations during second practice and is sure the majority of the teams will look to do a single stop in Sunday's race despite some of the issues faced on the hyper-softs on heavy fuel. Vettel managed to stay on Ricciardo's tail for most the race.

Race victor Daniel Ricciardo said that because of the tight nature of the circuit he was able to dictate a slower pace, but added: "I don't think we'll be able to maintain that kind of rhythm on a track like Montreal [the next race]".

Esteban Ocon took sixth place on the grid for Force India ahead of McLaren's Fernando Alonso and the Renault of Carlos Sainz.

It is shaping up to be an intriguing season, with Ricciardo, Vettel and Hamilton winning two races each. It was yet another mistake from the Kiwi in what is becoming a run of missed opportunities for the Le Mans victor. Daniel Ricciardo may never get a better chance to atone for his 2016 misfortune on this circuit than the one he has carved out for himself this weekend.

"We got home just using six gears. I'm pumped, it's been a good few days".

One last twist came five laps from the end, when Leclerc, in 12th, suffered a front-left brake failure and piled into the back of Hartley's Toro Rosso at the Nouvelle Chicane.

Ricciardo's issues meant that Vettel was able to close to within a second of the leader but was finding it hard to pass on a track where overtaking opportunities are notoriously rare.

As he usually does after a victory, Ricciardo took off his shoe, filled it with champagne and drank out of it.
