Monaco Grand Prix Analysis

We saw in Monaco two things Mark Webber's unbelievable pace on soft tyres and Fernando Alonso's climb to sixth place , We take a team by team analysis.
Red Bull
Mark Webber 1st Place
Sebastian Vettel 2nd Place
Mark Webber Started the race from pole and never seemed to lose it ,The safety cars interruption four times in the race closed the gap between him and Sebastian Vettel if the safety cars did not came the gap wouldbe very big a perfect race from the Australian.Sebastian Vettel's race was determined at the start where he managed to jump Kubica's Renualt and never seemed to match his teammate even though he set the fastest lap of the race with 1:15.192 .
Reunalt
Robert Kubica 3rd Place
Vitaly Petrov retired
Robert Kubica drove a fantastic race ,would he kept second place he could gave Webbe somthing to think of ,He was able to match the Australian's pace on the soft tyres ,and stayed close to Sebastian Vettel for the whole race.Petrov was running good in twelveth place until he retired with three laps to go .
Ferrari
Felipe Massa 4th Place
Fernando Alonso 6th Place
Felipe Massa drove a good race he tried to overtook Kubica at the start but he couldn't and stayed close to the leading trio and was able to match thier pace but as we all know overtaking is impossible on this track.Fernando Alonso started with a smart strategy with changing to medium tyres on the first lap,his aggressive passes on the slower cars was very important to finish in sixth and did 77 laps on the same tyres and was doing a good pace to the cars behind him which prove how good the F10 – and Alonso – is at preserving tyres.
Mclaren
Lewis Hamilton 5th Place
Jenson Button retired
Lewis Hamilton finished the race where he started and that was not to happen without his early pit stop to change to the medium tyres he would have been passed by Fernando Alonso.Button's race starts was bad as he moved from eight on the grid to eleventh maybe due to engine failure and retired with blown engine in the first lap.
Mercedes
Nico Rosberg 7th Place
Micheal Shumacher 12th
Rosberg lost to places at the start but got them back later ,He did a long stint on the soft tyres but couldn't pass anyone .Micheal Shumacher did a great race and finished sixth infront of Fernando Alonso which he passed at the final corner but the stewards handed him 20 seconds penalty to drop him from sixth to twelve but Mercedes said they will appeal.
Force India
Adrian Sutil 8th Place
Vitantonio Liuzzi 9th Place
Liuzzi ran infront of his teammate for alomost half of the race until Sutil passed him they were both running 9th and 10th but Shumacher's penalty gave them one place ahead.
Toro Rosso
Sebastien Buemi 10th Place
Jaime Alguersuari 11th Place
Buemi was running 11th and was close to the Force India's and took the final point thanks to Shumacher's penalty,Alguersuari did a good race but with overtaking he had to settle for 11th place.
HRT
Karun Chandhok retired
Bruno Senna retired
The HRT driver's kept out of problems and they wanted to finish the race but Senna hit Hydraulics problem and Trulli took Chandhok out with him with an aggressive overtaking move that didn't work out very well.
Williams
Rubens Barrichello retired
Nico Hulkenberg retired
both Williams drivers took the blame for thier accidents even though Barrichello was running infront of Shumacher when crashed at turn two.
BMW Sauber
Kamui Kobayashi retired

Pedro de la Rosa retired
Bmw Sauber had another bad race with de la rosa hitting hydraulics problems and Kobayashi C29 running into gearbox trouble.
Lotus

Jarno Trulli retired
Heikki Kovalainen retired
For a long time Kovalainen looked very strong and his lap times were very respectable. But both he and Trulli were delayed when the right rear wheelgun malfunctioned during their pit stops, and the Finn eventually retired with a steering joint problem which rendered the T127 too dangerous to drive. Trulli was pressuring Chandhok’s HRT for the new teams’ honours when he misjudged a passing move in Rascasse corner and they collided heavily.
Virgin

Lucas di Grassi retired
Timo Glock retired
Onboard footage from Alonso’s following Ferrari revealed just what oversteering handfuls both Virgins were. Glock nevertheless ran strongly and was chasing Kovalainen’s Lotus until he brushed a wall and damaged a track rod. Di Grassi also pushed hard and enjoyed a brief scrap with Alonso, but was eventually halted by a wheel problem.
