Daniel Ricciardo has sent a clear message in the second free practice session of the Monaco GP: Red Bull works and is ready to give war to the Mercedes. With the Ferrari quite a lot more back than expected, it was the australian who took the best lap of the day, and not only that, but they depicted a race pace very good. Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg were left with the second and the third time, while Max Verstappen was fourth, very close to Rosberg.
This second session was as much or more rugged than the first. Romain Grosjean, first, and then Ryo Haryanto, after, they destroyed their respective cars after colliding with the shields. In both cases, and with few meters difference, it was at the exit of the legendary tunnel of Monaco, without further consequences that the destruction of the Haas and the Manor, and two safety cars virtual.
After, was turn to Sebastian Vettel, which in the descent to Mirabeau gave it a spin and touched, almost no damage, with guards in the rear of his Ferrari. This was the first of the three he had on the day, although all of them without more. In the absence of 25 minutes, turn to Kevin Magnussen: entered Anthony Noghés, when it slammed against the wall. Although the event more surreal was that it left a small hole in the chassis to Lewis Hamilton: the hydraulic jack had lifted the nose of his Mercedes was released and hit the top of this, he made a small gap.
In regards to the spaniards, it was bittersweet. Carlos Sainz ended with the sixth fastest time and very good pace, even behind his team mate Daniil Kvyat, while Fernando Alonso has not passed the twelfth time. For the McLaren it was not a very positive for them, although everything suggests that it will be able to go through to Q3.
