Vettel said he was surprised by Red Bull's decision to start on the pink-marked tyre, a compound they managed to make work successfully relative to their rivals in Monaco, but Verstappen insisted his team had a good reason to do so.
"We had a few problems".
Ricciardo admitted that it was decided early to start the race using the Hypersoft Pirelli tyre opposed to the Ultrasoft that both Scuderia Ferrari and both Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport drivers will start on, and it should enable him and team-mate Max Verstappen to be aggressive in the opening laps and with the strategy. In qualifying he finished at the back of the customary battle between the top three teams, almost 0.2s off Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen, who managed to split the Mercedes drivers and claim third position. "I've always been fast and the pace is there every single weekend".
"Didn't have any problems, " said Hamilton, who leads the championship standings by 14 points over Vettel and 38 over Ricciardo. If I'm on the seventh race with a hard circuit on engines, I want to see it through.
"We have the B-spec engine this weekend, the upgrade, and I think just configurating a few things on that, we're not necessarily aligned, so we just had to go through a little bit of trial and error".
Again, Kimi Raikkonen led the Ferrari charge in second place, but Monaco victor Daniel Ricciardo, who missed a large chunk of FP2 as mechanics rushed to fix a mechanical problem, was able to end the day third.
They were soon out to join the near-frenzied traffic, in which the Dutchman clocked a new record in 1:12.035, to go three-tenths clear of team-mate Ricciardo, who responded in record-breaking style. "Our auto works well, but whether that will be enough in Q3, I don't know". "I'm exhausted of all the comments that I should change", he said. His best lap was the slowest in the field at 1:17.145, but he was there just to get the feel of an F1 vehicle and help the team test it on two types of tires. So qualifying we actually made really good progress.
"If the others are sliding around in dirty air or whatever, we should be able to get a bit more out of them".
"It's probably the first time in a while that we have gained really good team points so it's a good weekend from that perspective and also good for Max".
