Post-Race Statistics of the 2014 Monaco GP

What an absolutely insane Monaco GP that was, controversy, Mercedes domination, dirt in the eye and points for Marussia.

Marussia scored points. Jules Bianchi finished eighth. But due to a 5 second penalty for not starting in the correct grid slot he ended up ninth, scoring two points. Bianchi’s points are the first for Marussia and the first points for a Bianchi since his great-uncle Lucien at the 1968 Belgian GP for Cooper. Oh and some other things in the race happened too, including some Mercedes controversy and moody drivers.

The controversy started in Q3 when Rosberg make a mistake, locking up and entering an escape road and causing a yellow flag, meaning that Hamilton couldn’t improve his qualifying time and started second. This meant that Nico Rosberg started on pole, his sixth in F1 and Daniel Ricciardo outqualified Sebastian Vettel for the fifth time in six races, something no other teammate of Vettel’s has done.

Rosberg won the Monaco GP for the second time, his fifth F1 win, with Hamilton in second and Ricciardo third. The fifth consecutive Mercedes 1-2 finish and six consecutive race wins, though as Hamilton had some dirt in his eye he lost a lot of time late into the race and was nearly overtaken by Ricciardo in the dying laps.

Kimi Raikkonen scored the fastest lap of the race after a late pit stop after an incident with Kevin Magnussen, his 40th fastest lap in his 200th GP, but only his 199th start. Seven cars retired from the race, four from mechanical failures, three in accidents and Maldonado didn’t even start the race.


Hamilton’s championship lead has gone already, but Jules Bianchi has gone from last in the championship to 16th place and Marcus Ericsson from 21st to 17th, great races from both of them. Some more bad luck for Sebastian Vettel has dropped him to sixth, below Ricciardo and Hulkenberg. Sauber still haven’t scored any points in 2014, coming close until Gutierrez made a mistake and retired, meaning that Marussia are now up to ninth in the Constructors’ Championship.


Just four points between the two Mercedes drivers, and Rosberg has exactly twice the points of Fernando Alonso in third, meaning that the gap from first to third is the same as the gap from third to last.
