The Formula 1 Monte Carlo Grand Prix race is well known for the near impossible overtaking around the city-circuit, and Lewis starting in third, didn’t have the as good a chance as he could have had. BUT, Hamilton managed to get into second position, overtaking current Formula 1 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen , by the first corner.
Of course there was the rain which made conditions very tricky around the street circuit – but it made things the more interesting to watch. There were quite a few cars in the barriers, lots of mistakes happening all around, including Lewis who got too close to a barrier and needed new tyres.
Congratulations to Lewis Hamilton who achieved a life-long ambition by winning the Monaco Grand Prix.
