Perez, Ricciardo and Alonso. Hamilton did well, but was lucky enough not to need DoD.

I voted for 3 guys in the podium. Hulk was also good but Perez had good strategy to be ahead of Vettel. Hamilton and Ricciardo were great in the race. Hamilton helped by the team to swap places with Rosberg. I thought it would have been too late as Ricciardo was running away. But good driving and strategy in the end. Ricciardo was equally good but his team messed it up in the pits.

I vote for Ricciardo. On pace alone he should have had it in the bag.

Lots of credit to Hamilton though. He did superbly well keeping the wets in decent shape on a drying track and then making the ultra softs last. He definitely had a slice of luck with Red Bull's pit stop calamity but I feel some people are being a little harsh.

Ham did 47 laps on those ultra softs.
I think Pirelli have a bit to answer for. They didn't think they would last.
Just like last race when they said the Mediums would only last 20, and Max easily did 32 laps.

Rosberg looked like Rosberg of old.

I am gutted for Ric. He drove flawlessly all weekend. His 2nd pit was 13 seconds long. 10 seconds longer than it needed to be...
Had he come out in front of Ham, he would have easily cruised to victory.

Ricciardo,Alonso and Perez/Hamilton. Hard to separate the last two but I voted for Perez because it was more unexpected.

Daft reason I know but I had to vote for someone.

People are voting for Raikkonen.. This forum is unbelievable. On another thread a poster is telling me how Raikkonen destroyed Alonso in 2005, like they were in the same cars. Can we even take this forum seriously?!

Voted for Lewis, Ricciardo and Perez.

All three of these guys did stuff today that was way above ordinary. But if there was a single vote I would have picked Lewis. The work he did on his first stint combined with dealing with those fragile ultra softs with Ricciardo all over himfor what was an eternity was to me top class stuff. Yes I know he got helped by the Redbull mistake and he did overshoot the chicane, but it is just an occasion where the great stuff was too good to not overshadow the bad stuff.

Even if Ricciardo had won the race, Hamilton would have been driver of the day to me.

You look at both of their races and who had to put in the most skill to get the job done and that was Hamilton.

The Redbull was the faster car today in dry conditions. I hope people realize that.

How was the Red Bull car faster today in dry conditions?
Merc has been the car to beat for 3 years now.
I think Ric's driving made the difference in qualifying. Hamilton had the faster tyres in the race when they were in the dry.

That's reasonable, it is close between the two of them. It's also worth pointing out that Hamilton was faster in the wet once he was clear of Rosberg.

But was the Red Bull really the fastest in the dry? Or was that only in Ricciardo's hands? Max didn't seem capable of achieving the same level of performance without stuffing it in the wall.

Yeah Hamilton had the faster tires so he should have been able to pull away easily but Ricciardo stayed right with him and was arguably faster still.
If Ricciardo had been on Ultra softs don't you think he would have been even faster?
The guy did get pole position in the dry.
And the fact Mercedes has been the car to beat 3 years in a row mean nothing in this discussion. Singapore 2015 is proof of that when both Redbull and Ferrari were quicker than Mercedes that weekend.

I know, its so odd that the majority of posters rate Dan over Lewis in this race - it makes no sense :-P

This forum is one of the most serious that I am member of. Sometimes its even too serious. But in general people tend to be knowledgeable and you dont see much rubbish posts.

Hamilton was managing his tyres and just had to get them to the end on a track which is near impossible to overtake. He put in faster laps when needed. To say Hamilton should of pulled away easily is abit silly when you look at the circuit involved and how many laps Hamilton had to manage his tyres for. Why go off for a 20 second gap for no reason? Sure he has learnt from last year.

To be fair Daniel also had an engine advantage this weekend, as well of the spacial awareness advantage he seems to enjoy over Max.

People saying ham was lucky are deluded. Because of the nature of Monaco and his team mates pace he had to catch a 13 second gap and then overtake where overtaking is nearly impossible so his only option was strategy. He chose to ignore the inters as this gave him track position and as everyone always says track position is king at Monaco. He then kept Riccardo with 2 seconds back for the majority of laps left and put in a flier when he got closer. Red bull had the same opportunity to keep Daniel out and skip the inters, they blinked and lost the race. the second pit was not unlucky, it's a team sport and the human component of the team made a mistake, it happens. I'm not taking anything away from Daniels amazing ability and pace meerly pointing out those that diminsh Hamiltons victory are playing it down way too much.
