Lewis Hamilton 'can't afford another weekend' like Monaco

Sebastian Vettel

"I know how it feels, it's not a good feeling", reigning champion Nico Rosberg, who retired at the end of previous year, consoled him at the post-race interview.

Brazilian Felipe Massa was ninth for Williams and Denmark's Kevin Magnussen took the final point for Haas. "Bit by bit we will try and chip away".

Hamilton finished seventh and behind his Mercedes teammate, Valtteri Bottas, who was fourth.

His race came to an end following a crash with Sauber's Pascal Wehrlein, which led to a late safety vehicle, though it did not prevent Vettel from cruising to maximum points.

"This auto is not working everywhere we go but the more races we do the more learn and the stronger we get". Monaco a year ago was a hard track for us again.

Indeed his victory in Spain earlier this month has been sandwiched by a distant fourth-place finish in Russian Federation and now seventh in Monte Carlo, too.

"I haven't spoken to the team [about that] and I don't really plan to", he said.

Wolff is, at least, enjoying the fact Mercedes might be going up in the popularity stakes due to their struggles, adding: "I like the notion of underdog because the underdog is the one that people want to see win. I will definitely look into it".

The caravan heads overseas now, and the next race is in Canada, at Gilles Villeneuve Circuit, on 11th of June. Montreal is also a low-abrasion, low-grip surface with short duration corners and is also utilising the same tyre selection - including the ultrasofts that are the most problematic for Hamilton. "We'll be sure to push those red cars hard next time out in Canada".

However, echoing the post-race views of his Red Bull counterpart Christian Horner, Mercedes team chief Toto Wolff believes Ferrari's pitwall could not have known before pitting Raikkonen that the "overcut" would prove so powerful for Vettel.

"We have been dropping in and out of the tyre window", he insisted, referring to a factor that has always been a weak point for the team, now only more so, "never had two drivers or two cars over the whole course of a weekend within that window".

'Hopefully that was our worst race of the season, just an outlier'.

With the drivers trundling behind the safety vehicle, tire temperatures dropped dramatically and some could not cope.

Victory for Vettel marks the Ferrari driver's third win in the six races held so far. He did not rule it out later in the season, though.

"There are so many different things we need to look into, to try and understand why one vehicle can make the tyres work and the other cannot".

"I think we need to give them credit... they needed to pit one of the two drivers and put him on the super-soft (tyre)". "We now need to go back to the factory and make sure we do everything in our power to ensure it remains our weakest result of the year".
