2019 Monaco Grand Prix

The lap chart tells the story of the Monaco Grand Prix as far as changes of position were concerned: There were hardly any.

Those which did take place were almost entirely due to pit stops. The big loser in this respect was Kevin Magnussen, who went from sixth at the start of the race to 12th at the flag (and then 14th once the stewards were done with him).

Sergio Perez and George Russell gained the most places. The latter can be particularly pleased with his day’s work as he finished the race with both Alfa Romeos and Lance Stroll behind him.

Most remarkably of all, Russell’s Williams FW42 was the fastest car on track for three consecutive laps following the Safety Car restart, when race leader Lewis Hamilton was keeping the pace low to protect his front tyres. Russell ended the race with the 18th fastest lap.

Pierre Gasly was quickest of all over a single lap in the race thanks to another pit stop for fresh rubber. Even so he wasn’t able to beat the lap record which was set by his team mate last year.

Earlier in the race weekend McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown drew attention to pit stops being one of the team’s current strengths. That was clear in the race, where Carlos Sainz Jnr enjoyed the fastest complete stop of the race, which helped him to a ‘best of the rest’ sixth place.

  1. First ten laps were amazing with regard to one specific aspect– the gap between fourth placed Vettel and fifth placed Daniel.
    Its amazing how much Vettel pulled away in just ten laps –1.5 pit-stops !!!
    Was Renault so slow or was Daniel trying to conserve his tyres in anticipation of rain later in the race ?
    Unfortunately, the pit-stop during the SC didn’t help.

    1. @webtel Infortunately tyre saving plays a big part. Early in the race Hamilton had a high pace on the soft tyres and the drivers in the top teams behind him could drive a similar pace. Ricciardo had no need to try to follow since he lead the pack in Formula 1.5. So he was in tyre conservation mode.

      After the unexpected early pitstops Hamilton was put on the wrong tyres, therefore he tried to save the tyres as much as possible. He drove 1 to 2 seconds slower than he could, that’s why Formula 1.5 was able to stay close to the top teams.

    2. “Was Renault so slow or was Daniel trying to conserve his tyres in anticipation of rain later in the race ?”
      [The “Quote” button didn’t work]

      This. Seeing as he only had Formula 1.0 drivers ahead of him, he was basically the leader of his own Formula 1.5 race, in which he could set the pace he considered appropriate to finish ahead of everyone else (except the unbeatables ahead of him). With the threat of rain looming, he had a good reason to try and make the tyres last as long as possible, in order to be able to make a single pit stop when the rain arrives.
      The baffling part for me, however, is why they went for a complete change of strategy as soon as the SC was deployed. It’s not like that was an unreasonable strategy in and of itself. But still, it was a thorough change of mind, and it must’ve occurred to them that sacrificing track position in Monaco always constitutes a risk.

      1. @matthijs:
        “Ricciardo had no need to try to follow since he lead the pack in Formula 1.5”

        My first thoughts too. But wouldnt it be more wise to stay relatively close and try to take advantage of an error upfront rather than backing up too much ? After-all, overtaking is tough here.

        @nase:
        “It’s not like that was an unreasonable strategy in and of itself.”
        Didnt seem so at first. On another track , this would have worked very well. But this was a blunder nevertheless, at least in hindsight and quite rightly Daniel has been open about his frustration with the strategy. Can Renault really afford such mishaps ??!! They are way off from fourth with less than half the points that McLaren have at the moment.

        1. @webtel I think that Ricciardo realised quite soon that it would take too much life out of his delicate tyres to try to follow Vettel. Better to let the top teams go and focus on keeping the lead in Formula 1.5. Unfortunately the SC ruined it for Ricciardo.

  2. Hi @keithcollantine, the tyre strategies are missing. The relevant chapter contains the fastest laps instead. Thanks.

  3. Wow, Gasly closes in by 24 seconds over 10 laps to the Hamilton-train.
