A pit stop strategy worked well for the Red Bull team to leap ahead of Hamilton, during the first safety car period - trigged by Massa at lap 30 who managed to replicate a crash similar to Saturday’s practice after a left hand car failure.

Most on track entertainment was provided by Sergio Perez of McLaren and Adrian Sutil of Force India with impressive overtaking moves in the almost impossible narrow street circuits of Monaco.

Kimi Raikkonen's race was disrupted at the closing stages by Perez after a overtaking move by the later ended up in contact for both cars. A late pit stop to rectify a puncture saw Raikkonen dropping down the trail - but managed to fight back to 10th by the end of the race.

A big crash from Pastor Maldonado saw him flying into the Tecpro barriers saw a red flag session on lap 45. After the restart, Sutil passed Button and later repeated the move on Alonso to finish a respectable fifth.
