Montecarlo, 25th May 2014

Marco Mattiacci: “Historically, Monaco is an unpredictable Grand Prix and we are well aware there can be
thousands of variables here. If we had managed to keep that third place, it would have been a boost for the
entire team, but events beyond our control meant it was not to be. All of us are working flat out and I’m sure
that thanks to the great professionalism of the people around me, we will be able to improve day by day and get Read more of this post

Romain Grosjean took the chequered flag for his first time in the Monaco Grand Prix with a gritty drive to eighth in the final classification. Romain was hit from behind on the first lap, damaging a wheel rim which necessitated an early pit stop, but gradually worked his way up the order and into the points. Pastor Maldonado experienced a fuel supply issue with his E22 on the grid and was unable to make the race start.
• Romain started from fourteenth position on new super soft tyres, changing to new softs on lap 1 then Read more of this post

Position: DNF
“The race was going well, the pace was really encouraging, I was saving the tyres and the strategy looked like being the right one. Then, my engineer informed me about the drive-through penalty for “unsafe release” and finally we had the exhaust problem which definitely put an end to my race. It’s such a shame! We had done a great job over the whole weekend, the team was able to give me a good car and I also performed well so I think a fifth place was possible today. Let’s turn the page now and focus on the next race in Montreal, where I will again do everything I can to Read more of this post

The Monaco Grand Prix ended early for both Sauber F1 Team drivers. On lap 24 Adrian Sutil lost control of the car when braking coming out of the tunnel and hit the guard rail. Esteban Gutiérrez was in the top ten when he touched the guard rail on lap 60 in the Rascasse corner and spun. Before these two incidents the Sauber C33 had proved to be competitive, which opened the possibility of scoring points today. However, this opportunity was missed. Read more of this post

Circuit de Monaco, Sunday May 25

Despite starting 12th, a brilliantly mature drive by Jenson netted him sixth position at the chequered flag.

Jenson was immediately on the move; he tangled with Sergio Perez at Mirabeau on the opening lap, but was able to continue, then moved into the top 10 following Sebastian Vettel’s retirement. He went ninth when Daniil Kvyat also retired, and timed his pitstop to perfection, switching from Primes to Options just as the Safety Car boards went out at the pit entry. Read more of this post

DANIEL RICCIARDO, Finish Position: 3rd, Start Position: 3rd
“The race really came to life towards the end. It started off not so well and it’s a really short run to Turn 1, so that was frustrating. Then we got Seb due to his reliability and Kimi had a puncture and we sort of got back to where we were hoping to be. After the re-start we were just saving the tyres to the point that we could get to the end and then, with 20 laps to go, I thought they would be okay so I pushed. It was the first time in the whole race that I felt like I was really driving the car and we caught Lewis. It was fun but I couldn’t get him, so I have to say the race finished better than it started.” Read more of this post

Race Notes:
Felipe Massa finished seventh whilst Valtteri Bottas race ended on lap 50 of 78 in the Monaco Grand Prix. Both drivers made strong starts and, despite two safety cars interrupting proceedings, looked in a strong position to collect a good points haul for the team following their pitstops. Felipe pushed hard to catch Button and capitalised on accidents between Magnussen and Raikkonen. Valtteri stopped on track following an issue related to the Power Unit. The cause is being investigated. Read more of this post
