It remains to be seen who blinks first in the high stakes negotiations but Wolff is understandably fearful of forcing the pace given both Ferrari and Red Bull could be in the market for a new driver. What was supposed to have been a routine agreement, tying a four-time world champion to Formula One's supreme team for another three years, has instead turned into an elaborate diplomatic game as he wrestles with his future in the sport.

Such margins are significant on such a short circuit, with the gap between Vettel in third and Nico Hulkenberg in seventh less than 0.1s bigger than the margin between Ricciardo and the lead Ferrari.

After the Ferrari's got off to what would have been an alarming start from a Mercedes point of view, Hamilton has managed to reign them back in, and now lies 17 points clear of bitter German rival, Sebastian Vettel.

"I think women are the most lovely thing in the world", said Hamilton when asked on his opinion on the controversial subject.

"I don't! I wouldn't mind, but to be completely honest I'm happy with the relationship I have with Kimi", insisted a smiling Vettel.

Ferrari swept the front row a year ago and finished one-two, with Vettel leading polesitter Kimi Raikkonen, while Hamilton could manage only seventh.

Ivanka Trump Defends Serena Williams After French Open Snub
Serena Williams' return to Grand Slam tennis will see her play Kristyna Pliskova in the first round of the French Open 2018. Williams, then ranked 81st, won that tournament, thrashing the top-seeded Sharapova, 6-1, 6-2, in the final.

First practice at Monaco is rarely a reliable indication of who will be quick over the weekend, but it does give an impression of who has the most confidence in their auto from the get go. We topped the sessions, so for now we have done all we can. "I know, then we will see what happens".

"If I really believe I will be world champion, how can I put myself in the best situation?"

"I'm down to race with whoever".

"History shows it can often be hard when there's two incredibly strong alphas within a team, but it seems to kind of work with him and Kimi - but if you really look you can honestly say that Kimi can't be too happy because there's certain scenarios that don't work out for him". I was sliding a little bit too much, but as long as you know where it is going to end up and how it is going to slide, then it's fine. It brings the good and bad out of you, it pushes you to the limit.

"I feel one got away from me a few years ago".

"But I don't anticipate that we would be driving together in our time unless we do Le Mans together, which we'd probably just murder, but yeah".
