Red Bull set the pace during the opening practice session for the Monaco Grand Prix with Daniel Ricciardo beating teammate Max Verstappen to the fastest time.

Models for Swiss watchmaker Tag Heuer will feature on the grid at Monaco - though not in "grid girl" roles.

"I can't particularly comment, I don't particularly feel any way about it. when we pull up at the grid and there's a handsome woman on the grid, that's the Monaco Grand Prix, it's a lovely thing".

The Monaco Grand Prix's flashiness and glamour just wouldn't be the same without a striking female presence on the grid.

"The speed, sometimes I'm running round or driving round this city in the offseason, and it's hard to believe the speeds that we do up the hill and to turn 1, out of the tunnel", said Hamilton.

Earlier, Mercedes team chairman Niki Lauda had said that the FIA needed to urgently clarify "grey areas", including a rumour Ferrari illegally consumes oil via the turbo.

The Mercedes driver, 17 points clear of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel after five races, said on Wednesday that records were likely to fall and others echoed that view. But for me at the moment, it doesn't really matter, I am very happy to be where I am for the time that everyone knows.

"I think we'll be pretty decent".

"I agree with Lewis", he continued, "I think they look attractive".

Last year, however, Mercedes fell to Ferrari and Sebastian Vettel. The bottom line is that there is too much of a fuss nowadays.

"I don't think any of the grid girls in the past were forced to do it, I think they enjoyed what they were doing".

"I don't think there's anybody who forces them to".

"To win in Monaco would be huge, for the 250th, for the team", said Ricciardo, the victor in Baku in April.

Rookie Sauber driver Charles Leclerc had a mixed response, seeing benefits to both sides of the argument.

"I think the whole thing has been blown up, unnecessarily".

"Even though I have a girlfriend so I should not say that, maybe I will get in trouble". FOM said they could not be construed as "grid girls" and that they would not be holding board numbers nor standing in front of cars.

Although the midfield was so closely matched, it was surprising to see both Haas drivers struggling near the foot of the timing screens, with Kevin Magnussen 16th and Romain Grosjean 18th, though the Dane missed out on a lot of running in FP1. "And it's a great idea to have kids on the grid also".
