This year´s Monaco Grand Prix was overshadowed by the death of Niki Lauda at the beginning of raceweek. Formual 1 said good bye to Niki. On Sunday we saw two drivers using Niki's helmdesign - Sebastian Vettel used one from the early 70th while Lewis Hamilton had the design from Lauda´s win in Austria 1984. The race itself was more a procession but still interesting as the first cars stayed within some seconds. Finally Lewis Hamilton won in front of Sebastian Vettel and teammate Valterie Bottas. Max Verstappen crossed the finish line as second but got a 5 second penalty for unsafe release after his pitstop. The next event will take place in Montreal, Canada in two weeks time.
