2015 Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco

Vettel takes runners up spot!

Nico Rosberg won the Monaco Grand Prix for the third year in a row on Sunday, after a late strategy error demoted Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton from first to third behind the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel.

Vettel spent all 78 laps in the slipstream of Nico Rosberg's Mercedes, managing to get ahead of Lewis Hamilton, who led for the first 65 laps, until he made a surprising second pit stop. Vettel crossed the line four seconds behind the winner, having run the race at a very competitive pace. Daniil Kvyat and Daniel Ricciardo came home fourth and fifth respectively for Red Bull's best result of the season, followed by the second Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen who fought hard all race long, showing a strong pace.

In the drivers' championship battle Hamilton still leads, with 126 to Rosberg's 116 and Vettel's 98. In the constructors' Mercedes still lead with 242 points to Ferrari's 158, while Red Bull's 22-point haul brings them up to 74, not far behind Williams' 81.
