Ricciardo livid after another Red Bull bungle

May 30 - Daniel Ricciardo left Monaco grand prix late on Sunday declaring he could not wait to "get the hell out of here".

The Australian, who started the wet-dry race on the Principality's fabled streets from pole, was absolutely livid at having been beaten by world champion Lewis Hamilton.

"It hurts. I'm not sure where to go from here, what to do," the normally-chirpy and grinning Red Bull driver said.

Ricciardo had already been angry after Barcelona, when his seemingly superior three-stop strategy actually handed victory to teammate Max Verstappen.

This time, it was a bungled pitstop - which saw him waiting stationary for a set of tyres - that cost him the win.

Ricciardo says he was "screwed" by the team both times.

"It's two weekends in a row I've been screwed now," he said. "Two races in a row, two races in a row. That's all I can say.

"I took Barcelona on the chin, but two in a row? And especially here at Monaco grand prix. I told them (the team) after the race that nothing they can say will make me feel better."

Indeed, on the radio after the chequered flag, Ricciardo had growled: "Nothing you can say can make it any better. Just save it."

For the record, team boss Christian Horner said it was a miscommunication based on the fact that the pitwall at Monza is actually upstairs above the garage.

Dr Helmut Marko called it a "human mistake", and apologised.
