Ricciardo tops FP2 in Monaco

While Ferrari seemed to struggle with the rear end of their car on the Ultra-Soft tires and Sebastian Vettel cozied up to a couple of Armco barriers at Mirabeau and Ste Devote.

This is the first race that features the Ultra-soft tire and Ricciardo set a blistering pace followed by Lewis Hamilton who seemed to be on top of his game in both practice session today.

Perhaps it is worth noting that the self-professed 3rd best chassis on the grid didn’t manage better than 10th place for McLaren.
