The columnist called Curry's intent obvious before trashing his character, referring to him as "arrogant, whiny, utterly classless". "Of course Curry thought about what he was doing; he took his binky out of his mouth before pretending to relieve himself, then put it back in his mouth".

Raikkonen responded to controversially missing out on victory in Monaco by going fastest in practice, as the Ferraris and Mercedes looked evenly matched. Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo may have avoided any spins, but that was only because he was in the garage for FP2 with an engine problem.
