The 2014 Monaco Grand Prix was another strong showing for Mercedes as Nico Rosberg and his teammate Lewis Hamilton finished 1-2.  It was a comfortable win for Rosberg, who retakes the championship lead.

Daniel Ricciardo impressed once more than take third, finishing less than a second behind Hamilton. Earlier in the week the Briton said he has a different kind of hunger to Rosberg, but now he just had a different kind of vision. Some dirt in his left eye rendered him incapable of challenging for the victory in the closing stages.

Tensions between Hamilton, Rosberg and Mercedes were obviously left unresolved before the race began in cloudy skies, and it was an altogether grey day for the Briton. The afternoon was peppered with a series of fraught radio messages between Hamilton and his engineer, as he struggled to find a way to beat the pole sitter.

Here is the final finish for the race:

  1. N. Roberg
  2. L. Hamilton
  3. D. Ricciardo
  4. F. Alonso
  5. N. Hullkenberg
  6. J. Buton
  7. F. Massa
  8. J. Bianchi
  9. R. Grosjean
  10. K. Magnussen
  11. M. Ericsson
  12. K. Raikkonen
  13. K. Kobayashi
  14. M. Chilton
  15. E. Gutierrez
  16. V. Bottas
  17. J. Vergne
  18. A. Sutil
  19. D. Kvyat
  20. S. Vettel
  21. S. Perez
  22. P. Maldonado
