Result– Nico Rosberg wins the Monte Carlo GP 30 years after his father Keke Rosberg triumphed at the same venue.

After 3 consecutive pole positions, Rosberg finally won only his second F1 GP of his career. After a difficult time with the tyres over the last few races (where he finished 6th and 9th after starting on pole), Rosberg drove a flawless and focused race to leave the drama behind him. Despite an FIA statement mentioning that Mercedes and Pirelli could be in serious trouble, with the matter being taken to the International Tribunal, Rosberg could still retain this win as a legal one- while his team might face a backlash over the next few weeks. 
The race itself was far from peaceful, with the incidents almost overshadowing the final result. While Raikkonen equaled Schumacher’s 23-race point scoring record with a barely-there 10th place, he has been left cursing Mexican Sergio Perez for his reckless driving. Then there was Lewis Hamilton, missing out on a podium spot once again, ending his race while criticizing Vettel and Red Bull for their attack on Mercedes (and their ‘illegal’ tyre testing at Barcelona between races). This was after two safety car incidents and one red flag- which held up the race for 25 minutes after a Massa crash and a Maldonado special that wrecked the barriers. Even Button, who finished 6th, ended up criticizing Ferrari’s Alonso for driving ‘safe’ and concentrating only on the final championship standings. Of course, no race can pass without Frenchman ‘madcap’ Roman Grosjean doing something inane- this time incurring a 10 place grid penalty for the next race at Canada. 

The icing on the cake for Rosberg- who has never really lived upto his potential- was the fact that this was his home race. It was a place that he had grown up in, all his life, and it was only appropriate that he converted his superb qualifying form to race performance on Sunday. 
Amidst all the chaos, Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber- the two Red Bulls criticized for lack of qualifying speed recently- finished 2nd and 3rd, with Vettel now leading an angry Raikkonen by 21 points in the standings. This wasn’t one of Alonso’s finest efforts, where he was passed by Button, Perez as well as Force India’s Sutil on a virtually impossible overtaking track- and he finished 7th, a good 5 spots behind rival Vettel. Button mentioned that Alonso could be thinking about 19 races and not 1 race, which well looked the case at Monte Carlo- and the Spaniard needs to rethink his strategy for Canada and the rest of the season if he ever wants to win a third Championship after 2006.
Onto Canada for the North-American circuit, where Vettel could virtually extend his lead into a comfortable position, unless Raikkonen decided to win his first race after Australia.
