Nico Rosberg took his first win of the 2013 F1 season after a drama-filled Monaco Grand Prix.
In a race that featured two Safety Car periods and a mid-race stoppage, Rosberg led from start-to-finish having snared pole position to repeat the success of his father Keke from 30 years ago.
Rosberg led team-mate Lewis Hamilton
in the early stages but Hamilton was jumped by Red Bull
pair Sebastian Vettel
and Mark Webber
when the opening round of stops took place under the Safety Car after Felipe Massa
crashed at St Devote.
A mid-race stoppage after a crash involving Pastor Maldonado
at Tabac didn't deter Rosberg and there was a further Safety Car period to survive after Romain Grosjean
clattered into Daniel Ricciardo at the Chicane. Controlling things throughout, Rosberg took the victory ahead of Vettel and Webber, with Hamilton missing out on the podium in fourth.
Adrian Sutil produced a storming drive to take fifth ahead of Jenson Button's McLaren
with Fernando Alonso, Jean-Eric Vergne, Paul di Resta and Kimi Raikkonen
rounding out the scorers.
Raikkonen's run to tenth came despite him needing to pit late on with a puncture after a clash with Sergio Perez, who himself was forced to retire after a battling drive saw him look set for a top six finish.
