While Nico Rosberg went wire-to-wire in Monaco today to claim his second straight win at the principality, it was a less fruitful race for a number of other drivers who were forced to end their days early.
Sebastian Vettel, Adrian Sutil and Sergio Perez were just three of the eight retirees in Monaco, where a race of attrition allowed Jules Bianchi to finish ninth and score Marussia’s first ever points in Formula 1.
Perez crashed out on the first lap after tangling with Jenson Button at Mirabeau, whilst an engine problem for Sebastian Vettel forced him to park up and retire. Adrian Sutil’s day came to an early end after a spin on the exit of the tunnel, which brought out the safety car for the second time.
Pastor Maldonado, Jean-Eric Vergne, Valtteri Bottas, Daniil Kvyat and Esteban Gutierrez were the other retirees.
