F1: Lewis back on top in Monaco

May 302016

A wet start to the day couldn’t damped Lewis Hamilton’s positive attitude which helped him blaze to a thrilling victory at the Monaco Grand Prix, won thanks to his bold tyre management, and a helping hand from teammate Nico Rosberg. The rain-hit race was started behind a safety car, but when the track started to dry Lewis opted to stick on the wets, and still managed to eek out similar lap times to his rivals, despite them being on intermediate tyres. The brave strategy meant he was able to make one less stop than his opponents, allowing him to go all the way to the top podium position, winning this race for the second time in his career.
