driver Sergio Perez. The rain ensured a much more exciting race than usual.
 
For the first time in the history of the Monaco Grand Prix, the rain forced the race to start behind the safety car and only after seven laps did the race really began. Daniel Ricciardo was ahead of the two Mercedes and immediately began to distance himself in the lead, showing the Renault's  engine pace progress. The German team, seeing that Rosberg was slower and delaying his teammate ordered them to swap positions, allowing Hamilton to try and catch the Aussie.
 
Hamilton got into the lead of the race as he opted to stay longer on track with rain tires. With intermediate tires Ricciardo quickly regained the lead when the world champion went to the pits to switch to ultra-soft tires. The Australian came to the pits on the next lap, but a communication problem meant that the tires were not ready which delayed the race leader. When he left the pit area Hamilton managed to stay in the lead and Ricciardo tried to take advantage of the fresher tires to try to overtake the Brit. The Australian was about to get it but fiercer defensive driving from Hamilton eventually stopped him, leaving Ricciardo protesting through the radio about the world champion's driving.
 
The British driver managed to absorb Ricciardo's pressure to take his 44th career win and the first of the season as well as the first since he won the third world championship at the United States Grand Prix.

. The German also pressured the Mexican in the final laps, but Perez got the best.
 
Fernando Alonso returned to the points taking fifth place ahead of the other Force India from Nico Hulkenberg. Rosberg didn't go beyond sixth place which allowed Hamilton to close the gap in the championship to 24 points.
 
Carlos Sainz Jr., Jenson Button and Felipe Massa completed the top 10 in Monaco.
