Lewis Hamilton wins F1's Monaco Grand Prix

MONACO — Lewis Hamilton threw himself into the arms of his Mercedes team after winning Sunday's rainy, incident-packed Grand Prix of Monaco.

Despondent Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo was second — after a huge blunder from his team, which failed to have his tires ready — with Sergio Perez third for Force India.

Hamilton's mood was in stark contrast to Saturday when, on a track where passing is so hard, he wrote off his chances after qualifying third.

"I went to have a beer with some friends," two-time defending Formula One champion Hamilton said of snapping out of his funk.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner apologized to Ricciardo for the team's error. The Australian driver said "everyone was running around like headless chucks (chickens)."

  2. Rays Tales: Who's the team MVP? It's a vexing proposition

    The Heater

    Given that the Rays' season is — barring a much bigger story — going to end next Sunday, this is the time to reflect on what they did over the past six months — honor the good, acknowledge the bad and note some of the more interesting.

    Typically, that starts with the MVP.

    Corey Dickerson, left, and Steven Souza Jr. typify the conundrum: some good, some not so good.
  3. Lightning journal: Ryan Callahan feels good after first game action since January

    Sports

    TAMPA — As veteran RW Ryan Callahan was riding a stationary bike before Friday's exhibition game, he felt nervous. There was anxiety.

  4. FSU players rally around freshman QB James Blackman

    College

    TALLAHASSEE — For the first few minutes Saturday, Florida State's James Blackman looked like a true freshman making his first start at quarterback for a big-time program.

    Florida State Seminoles quarterback James Blackman (1) gets sacked during the first quarter of the Florida State Seminoles game against the North Carolina State Wolfpack on September 23, 2017, at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Fla.  Final score, North Carolina State Wolfpack 27, Florida State Seminoles 21.
  5. No. 12 FSU, defense struggle in 27-21 loss to N.C. State

    College

    TALLAHASSEE — It's easy to blame No. 12 Florida State's 27-21 loss to North Carolina State on the injury to starting quarterback Deondre Francois or the three-week layoff because of Hurricane Irma.

    It would also be wrong.

    Florida State Seminoles wide receiver Nyqwan Murray (8) carries during the first quarter of the Florida State Seminoles game against the North Carolina State Wolfpack on September 23, 2017, at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Fla.  At the half, North Carolina State Wolfpack 17, Florida State Seminoles 10.
