Six points separate top four F1 drivers

Posted on Author Keith Collantine

The Monaco Grand Prix has left the drivers’ championship race looking quite open, as three drivers have now each scored two victories.

Lewis Hamilton has a narrow lead in the drivers’ championship but Ferrari’s constructors’ championship lead is largely intact.

Hamilton’s second win of the year puts him three points ahead of Kimi Raikkonen, who in turn has a single point’s advantage over team mate Felipe Massa.

Robert Kubica’s fifth top four finish in a row means he is within six points of Hamilton:
