2015 Monaco GP Post-Race Stats

What started off as a rather boring Monaco GP didn’t end too badly, unless your name is Lewis Hamilton.

Hamilton led the race from the grid right up to his pit stop under safety car on lap 65, coming out just half a car length behind Sebastian Vettel for third. Hamilton was unable to pass after the safety car, even with fresh super soft tyres, so finished third behind Vettel in second and Rosberg in first. This means that Nico Rosberg has won three consecutive Monaco GPs and is the only man to do so without having won a championship.

The fastest lap of the race went to Daniel Ricciardo with a time of 1:18.063, a full half second quicker than the Mercedes of Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton. Pastor Maldonado only completed five laps after suffering from more mechanic issues, but his fastest lap was still four tenths faster than Will Stevens, who finished the race.

Carlos Sainz started from the pit lane after not stopping for the weighbridge in qualifying but had an excellent recovery drive to finish tenth. His teammate Max Verstappen was also impressive, including some very cheeky overtakes by following a Ferrari when other cars were blue flagged. If it wasn’t for the crash with Grosjean he could well have finished in the points. McLaren and Jenson Button however DID finish in the points for the first time this season, I wouldn’t put money on them to do it again in Canada though. It’s also the first time since the 2013 Brazilian GP where Williams have failed to score points

All the same at the top of the graph, but a big mix up in the midfield. The young Russian Daniil Kvyat has gained an incredible seven positions after his fourth place in Monaco. Both Toro Rosso drivers have lost positions and for the first time Felipe Nasr has kept the same position. You have probably noticed that I have now added names to the right side of the line to make it easier to see who is where, unfortunately it doesn’t work well with the points graph as drivers are clustered together, but I will eventually do something to help.

Gap to Hamilton is now just ten points, Kimi Raikkonen is still on his own in fourth, too far behind Vettel and too far ahead of everyone else to really worry about dropping below fourth.
