LAUDA TOOLS CONTAIN FLOODING
Formula 1 paid an impeccable tribute to late legendary driver Niki Lauda on Sunday afternoon.
Prior to the race, all 20 drivers circled around a dedicated Lauda helmet singing a minute of silence with red & # 39; NIKI & # 39; caps to pay tribute to the legendary triple world champion on the grid.
It was an emotional day in all of Monaco after he died at the age of 70.
Earlier in the day, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff confirmed that they will keep the red three-pointed star dedicated to Lauda forever on the hood of his car.

VERSTAPPEN PAYS THE ULTIMATE PRICE
Max Verstappen got an expensive blow when he visited five-time world champion Hamilton for the best place.
The 21-year-old was given a five-second penalty for an unsafe release when he bumped into Bottas after his pit stop.
Although Verstappen crossed the line second and only shot Hamilton for a fraction of a second after lap, his real efforts failed.
The five-second penalty meant that Verstappen finished fourth on the podium behind Vettel and Bottas.

CAR PARK ON THE RAIL

HEART SOURCES FOR LECLERC
Charles Leclerc had a day to forget after being forced to retire at the weekend during his home race in Monaco.
Leclerc, born in Monte Carlo, started in 15th place before driving his Ferrari to 12th with a brilliant pass on Haas & Romain Grosjean, while breaking into his red car in Rascasse.
He tried the same in the next round on Nico Hulkenberg & # 39; s Renault, but this time tagged the hurdle. His band was pierced and whipped all the way back to the pits, and deposited the debris on the track.
The safety car was released and Leclerc had a damaged floor, which resulted in an early withdrawal from the race.
