Was Raikkonen sacrificed for Vettel?

Was Raikkonen sacrificed for Vettel?”

The German also received some support from Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff.

Ferrari have denied all claims with regards to team orders and made it clear that their drivers are free to race each other.

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany celebrates with his second placed teammate Kimi Raikkonen of Finland, left, after winning the Formula One Grand Prix at the Monaco racetrack in Monaco, Sunday, May 28, 2017.

"Something we've been waiting for a long time has finally come to pass, a race which will be part of our history", Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne said. "And this is the new reality at the moment".

Vettel's success was Ferrari's first in the principality since seven-time champion Michael Schumacher triumphed in 2001.

But it was shrouded in controversy.

New smart speaker expected as Apple kicks off conference
So we thought we'd make ourselves useful and tell you what you should pay attention to and what you could skip over to save time. While Siri was previously available on the Apple Watch, the assistant's ability to automatically show information was limited.

Asked to explain why the two Silver Arrows were performing so inconsistently, Wolff said: 'It remains a mystery.

In Monaco, triple world champion Hamilton qualified 13th and ended up seventh, with his Finnish team mate fourth.

'It turned out to be OK on Valtteri's vehicle but not great on mine. "Valtteri has been doing a great job and I don't now feel we have to favour one or the other".

"There are so many different things we need to look into, to try and understand why one vehicle can make the tyres work and the other cannot".

"I know how it feels", Rosberg said to Raikkonen. "We've just got to make sure we're ahead of them so we don't need to be in the same scenario that they're in today".

"I think I managed it nicely and as professionally as I could".

IMac Pro Is Apple's New Super-Powered Workhorse

Jenson Button's poor weekend in the vehicle continued early as he and Pascal Wehrlein pitted early and almost collided very early to put the pair well behind the rest of the pack.

Even more so for Hamilton, whose chances of a third win at Monaco and 56th overall now look extremely remote.

"But the more races we do, the more we learn and the stronger we get".

It's very clear Ferrari have chosen their number one driver and are pushing everything to make sure Sebastian will maximise his points.

"It's very hard for the leading vehicle (here) to get jumped by the second auto unless the team decide to favour the other auto... so that's very clear".

Indeed much of the paddock had been in agreement before the race that the Italian team would ensure Vettel, rather than Raikkonen, who is a distant fourth in the championship, would receive the winner's trophy from Prince Albert of Monaco.

Jeff Sessions offered to resign after rising tension with Trump
Never before have we had a direct line into how a president thinks like we do for Trump. It's not policy, it's not an executive order.

Wolff warned: "Inconsistency has been following us through the season, and on the opposite side Ferrari put the vehicle on track in Barcelona (testing) and they were quick from the get-go".
