Startovavav from pole for the third time in a row in Monaco Nico Rosberg finally managed to win the race. This did not prevent either a safety car, or even stop the race the red flag in the middle of the race due to a serious accident Pastor Maldonado. For Rosberg victory in Monaco was the second of his career after last year’s Chinese Grand Prix in 2012. To win in Monaco is expensive, besides Nico was born and raised here, so for him the race can be called home. But his team-mate Lewis Hamilton safety car, which appeared on the track for the first time after the accident of Felipe Massa (almost the same, in which the Brazilian was in the Saturday morning practice), severely tarnished the race. By that time, almost all the leaders were in the pits but the pilots Mercedes. Stop by the pace-car cost Hamilton in the loss of two positions. Thus, Vettel came in third place Mark Webber was the fourth, and Lewis went fourth. So they finished as overtaking in Monaco is very difficult. It is difficult, but possible – it proved today Sergio Perez, who spent a few beautiful successful attacks. However, the last of them, in the fight with Kimi Raykonenom ended contact and then goes the distance. Finn also had to go into the pits, but on fresh tires, he still managed to get through to tenth place, earning one point, even though the distance was held on a high fifth place. A few successful overtaking Adrian Sutil held and, failing to avoid contact with the struggle for which he was awarded the most fifth place at the finish. Sixth line crossed Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso finished the race in seventh place only. For Ferrari in recent seasons, the Monaco Grand Prix did not add up. Last time for the Scuderia in the Principality won Michael Schumacher back in 2001. For most of the race Alonso kept a pace leader, but then the pace started to fall. As a result, not only Fernando played any positions, but missed out on the race Sergio Perez, Adrian Sutil and Button. In the individual competition Vettel pulled away even further. The top ten also broke Jean Eric (8th place) and Paul di Resta (9th place). And the next race will be held in two weeks – it will be the Grand Prix of Canada in 2013.
