Daniel Ricciardo brought back memories of Formula One great Michael Schumacher in his prime Sunday as the Australian nursed a wounded Red Bull to Monaco Grand Prix victory in the team's 250th race.Winning from pole position for the first time in his career, Ricciardo drove for nearly two-thirds of the race – some 50 laps – with a car down on power due to problems that emerged on lap 28 .Ricciardo's only previous pole had been in Monaco two years ago, when he lost out to Hamilton on strategy and finished runner-up.Ricciardo had made a clean start and, controlling the race, looked as much of a nailed-on certainty for victory as ever exists on Monaco's treacherous metal-fenced streets.Ricciardo had already smashed the all-time track record repeatedly in practice before qualifying in 1:10.810 .
