Daniel Ricciardo took pole position for Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix with another sensational record-breaking performance for Red Bull in a dramatic qualifying on Saturday. Ricciardo pointed out the issue to the pit garage, but Red Bull indicated that it wasn't something that could be fixed.
On team radio earlier, the Briton said: "Thank God that's over".
It is perhaps understandable why Horner compared Ricciardo's drive to that of Schumacher at the 1994 Spanish Grand Prix, considering it is probably the best example of a driver overcoming mechanical issues to pull off an impressive result.

Warriors force Game 7 against Rockets
Golden State made big moves in the second half, making it obvious they were ready to stretch the series out to Game 7. If he can not come up big and get Golden State back to the NBA Finals, the critics will only grow louder for Durant.
Vettel said: "We had the pace, it was a tricky race". Esteban Ocon (FRA/Force India) 23.667, 7. But why was Ricciardo driving slowly? "Despite this, after changing tyres and front wing, Alonso returned to the race and lapped faster than team-mate Stoffel Vandoorne on all but a handful of laps". Lewis Hamilton (GBR/Mercedes) 17.013, 4. Hamilton finished third in Monaco, one spot behind Vettel, and now leads the German by 14 points, with Ricciardo 24 further back. This turned out to be Alonso's first DNF this season. "It wasn't really racing", he said.
Elsewhere, Max Verstappen was having a fun race.
Red Bull's other driver Max Verstappen also put on an impressive show after failing to qualify due to work being on his vehicle to fix damage following a practice session crash. The Dutchman drove an aggressive race to finish 9th - after a series of overtakes, that made us wonder why Vettel couldn't challenge Ricciardo for the lead, especially if the latter had vehicle issues and was driving at a really slow pace.
"We were just cruising around from lap six", Hamilton said. After all, the Renault engine is one of the reasons why Daniel Ricciardo isn't considered as a genuine contender.

Love did not score and finished with four rebounds - forced out after a blow to the head that caused a possible concussion. LeBron James age 33 season in the midst of what could be his eighth straight trip to the NBA Finals exceeds Jordan.
Ricciardo's lap could become the stuff of F1 legend, as the cars are expected to be 1.5s per lap slower next year in the hope of improving overtaking. It later transpired that he had damaged his gearbox, and Red Bull were unable to replace it in time for him to compete in qualifying. The 2018 Monaco Grand Prix proved yet again why Red Bull Racing need Ricciardo, rather than the other way around.
Hamilton thinks Ricciardo's advantage over the young Dutchman puts him in a good position when talking about his future. "That was the most boring race I've ever taken part in". However, calls to demote Verstappen a la Kvyat style seems a bit over the top! Carlos Sainz Jr (ESP/Renault) 1:09.013, 11.
According to sources at the track no expenses were sparred by the PC makers in sponsoring resellers to one of the most important F1 races of the season.
Horner says the job Ricciardo completed was similar to the job carried out by the three astronauts who managed to guide Apollo 13 home to earth in April 1970 against all odds when their spaceship suffered what should have been a series of terminal failures.
Soggy Weekend Ahead Thanks To Subtropical Storm Alberto
The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30, but like this system, some develop outside of that period. The differences between a subtropical storm and tropical storm are technical, said Fox 35 meteorologist Jayme King.
