Monaco – Germany's Nico Rosberg won Formula One's showcase Monaco Grand Prix for Mercedes today, 30 years after his world champion father Keke triumphed on the streets of the Mediterranean principality.

The pole-to-flag victory, after two safety car deployments and a 25-minute stoppage caused by Pastor Maldonado crashing his Williams, was only the second of Rosberg's career – just as it had been for his Finnish father in 1983.

Red Bull's triple world champion Sebastian Vettel made it a German one-two to extend his championship lead to 21 points over Finland's Kimi Raikkonen – who finished 10th – after six of the 19 races.

Australian Mark Webber, last year's winner and Vettel's team mate, was third ahead of 2008 world champion Lewis Hamilton in the other Mercedes.
