Nico Rosberg kept a calm head to survive a fraught Monaco Grand Prix and follow in his father's footsteps as a winner of F1's blue riband event.

Great drive. I wonder how Schumacher would do in this years car? Because last year he beat Rosberg just about every time his car finished the race. I don't think he was as bad as most people think.

Hamilton very unlucky with the timing of the safety car. I've looked at the footage closely, and you can see he lost around 5 seconds compared with the earliest he could have pulled into the pit box. He came out about 5-6 seconds behind Webber, and about 10 seconds behind Vettel, so he would definitely have lost the place to Vettel anyway, and probably Webber too. The only possibly optimisation they could have have made is if Mercedes made Rosberg go a couple of seconds quicker, and stacked Hamilton right behind him. But I'm not sure that's would have been possible.

In my book, Hamilton was deprived at least one spot by safety car circumstances, and it's debatable for the second. If anybody disagrees, I'd love for them to say why.

Nico Rosberg is my favorite F1 driver from Germany after Michael. He is very quiet and very fast consistent driver. I'm very happy for him. I have no doubt L.H has help Rosberg start of the race by holding Vettel and later NIco drove spotlessly to win the race.

Grosjean and Perez have opening their F1 2013 F1 season from Monaco GP. We have to see more demolition F1 cars and ruining other drivers race from now on.

Perez should change his nick name Checo to Mr. Short Cut. Since he started in F1, he short cut chicane every time behind car closed in, every year.

Kimi has taught him how to race and not to bully to Mr. Short Cut. I like it.
Perez problem is he thought every drivers must give away to him when he over taken. The reality is no drivers want their race so they give pass rather than damaging their car.
He need to learn how to over taken without risk.
Always he will hit other cars when he over taken.
If Carlos Slim was not his backer and then I'm not sure even he will be allowed

It was a fantastic race and the Monaco GP proved it can also be exciting and not just driving around 77 laps in the same begging order from the start to finish. It was a shame that you couldn't follow Kmi´s maneouvring in the last 6 laps when he stormed by to score a point. The chase after M Schumacher´s record of scoring points in 24 consecutive races thus remained alive. Well done Kimi and good that there is someone who challenge the drivers such as Checo who seem to have very little respect for co-competitors.
