“Holy shit!” the words that leapt out of my mouth, sitting in a pleasantly dark, cool room by myself when Felipe Massa took pole position -- his first since Brazil 2008 – over his Williams teammate Valtteri Bottas, creating the first all-Williams Row 1 since 2003.

Hamilton had won four straight races coming into Monaco and started on the front row for every race of the season. Rosberg, second in the drivers’ championship by just 3 points, won the first ...
