No Brainer Here! Mark Webber
Never put a wheel wrong all race, even had the composure under pressure to back the field up to do the team thing to help maximise team points by helping Vettel as close to the podium as possible "Selfless". One mistake could have seen a challenger pounce.

The consumate professional drive (including Qualifying) as everyone knows qualifying is probably more critical here than any other race due to the track constraints. This race is why MW is so respected by his peers! A procesion it may have been, but it was a masterclass in precision driving and skill.

You forgot on MSC. I do not belive, WEB would won if MSC would start from pool. Well, he start from P6 and if GRO would not hit him, he would come higher from the start and RAI would not held him back. It is a shame for me and a discrase for MAMG that he had then 4th car failure in 6 races, but that was that for him.

Let's not forget on best Q lap

So, first GRO did his job, that is what he is good at

then RAI held him back and though he tried, he could not pass him, that ruined his race pace

and then also a car failure

for me, he was the man in Monaco

@urko

If the question was who shone at Qualifiying I would have to agree, but the "what ifs" simply don't apply. Webber did not put a foot wrong, and no one close was willing or able to take a lunge and risk a DNF or points loss. Sure Schumi's grid penalty meant he was disadvantaged in the race, but he incurred it, "harsh or not" and knew going in he could not start on pole for the race. HE CERTAINLY SHONE IN QUALI - AND IT WAS GOOD TO SEE !

BUT the question was who shone in Monaco? - and throughout Webber stood tall !!!

To urko

Shone second - chuckle, second quali to team mate, second on official grid, second off start, second in race, so in that sense I agree with your point completely. On Sunday he drove to the tune of the pied piper.

Mark Webber did the first part of the job on Saturday and once he inherited pole was perfect on Sunday, just ahead of him and possibly Alonso I would put Heikki for getting the team back up to tenth

Begs the question who wrote this rubbish. DOH! MW drove a superb race under pressure as both the pacesetter and pioneer in the changing conditions. As for the rest no one challenged, and for Schui's fans he put himself in both positions, grid and start squeeze.

I am shocked Karthikeyan is not on the list. He managed to keep it off the wall and managed to NOT cause an accident. BRAVO NARAIN!!!! you would have earned my vote!!
