Kimi Raikkonen to start from pole at Monaco GP

"This is the new reality".

Vettel led pole-sitter Kimi Raikkonen home in a Ferrari one-two, but his victory was somewhat overshadowed by accusations that the Italian team manipulated the result.

But it was shrouded in controversy.

Coupled with the victory for Sebastian Vettel, Hamilton's result means that the Ferrari man extends his drivers' championship lead to 25 points.

Asked to explain why the two Silver Arrows were performing so inconsistently, Wolff said: 'It remains a mystery.

Lewis Hamilton will sit down with his Mercedes team in the coming days as he attempts to get on top of the auto problems which are threatening to derail his challenge for a fourth title. But when you are controlling the Monaco Grand Prix from the front in the fastest auto, you have to be some dunderhead to pit the leader and turn him into the runner-up.

"I don't now feel that we have to have a No1", Hamilton said.

"I think it's really important now that we collectively work as a team more than ever before, as we have been".

List of every bad thing avoided by rejecting Paris accords
China generates about 20 percent of its electricity from renewable sources, compared to about 13 percent in the U.S. The main driver of the reduction was Obama's Clean Power Plan, which would have closed coal-fired power plants.

"There might be some things along the way that position-wise, at some stage, might become valuable, but who knows what is going to happen".

Despite the setback, Hamilton, who has won only two races this season to Vettel's three, saw the glass as half full. "But the underdog is the one that people want to see winning".

But the Briton insists he has no intentions on seeking the number one status at Mercedes for the remaining 14 races of the season. "We'll be sure to push those red cars hard next time out in Canada".

While Bottas enjoyed an exceptional weekend in Sochi, Hamilton struggled to get performance out of the Pirelli tyres and finished fourth. But as I said we will regroup. He said: "We couldn't plan much, but the plan was to pull away and as soon as the gap opened I took it". "It's clear to me that Ferrari have chosen their No.1 driver, so they'll be pushing everything to make sure Sebastian is maximised on all of his weekends".

"It's hard for the leader here to be passed - unless the team decides to favour one vehicle", Lewis Hamilton, now 25 points behind Vettel after six races, said.

He added: "The Ferrari seems to work everywhere so these next 14 races are going to be very hard". I don't know where they are in terms of points [in the championship] and so on, so I don't think they look into that but I think the rule of thumb is pretty clear that when you qualify ahead and you are ahead in the first stint, you get priority on the first stop and that's what happened.

Ferrari is back, and not only back, they are the main title contenders this year, and today's race in Monte Carlo is the best possible proof for our claim.
