Not to take anything away from Sebastian Vettel, but he cannot deny that the entire Monaco weekend has gone his way in a remarkable manner – he grabbed pole position after his rivals’ attempts were thwarted following a red flag and then with the race, Vettel was facing ‘the cliff’ in terms of grip left on his tyres and had Alonso and Button chasing him down.  A horrible multi-car shunt caused the safety car to come out and then the race was red flagged.

This scenario robbed fans of a proper race to the finish with the teams able to change tyres and the final handful of laps left the top three as they were with Vettel taking the victory once again in 2011.

Our race highlights will follow shortly, but for now here’s the provisional race result, pending confirmation from the FIA.
