2014 Monaco Grand Prix

Kimi Raikkonen, Ferrari, Monte-Carlo, 2014As is traditional the first two practice sessions in Monaco were held on Thursday instead of Friday.

Heavy rain and hail fell before the afternoon running, meaning the session got off to a very quiet start.

However Kimi Raikkonen’s running ended soon after it began. And he then had a near-miss with Sebastian Vettel’s car in the pits – a Red Bull mechanic had to drag him out of the way before Vettel blasted out of his pit box.

Here are today’s Twitter highlights.

First practice

Max Chilton was in the wars early on, ending the session after just seven laps.

Second practice

The afternoon session began on a wet track. Most drivers opted to stay in the pits as the rest of the weekend is expected to be dry.

It was dry enough for slick tyres in the final minutes of the session and 21 drivers were on track for an exciting conclusion of the day’s running.

After the action

Comments on Fernando Alonso’s efforts after Luca di Montezemolo said his driver “gives 200%”.

His team mate Kimi Raikkonen, meanwhile, was steered of Sebastian Vettel’s path in the pit lane.

The Formula Renault 3.5 drivers were also in action today:
