Jules Bianchi, Graeme Lowden, Marussia, Monte-Carlo, 2014An action-packed Monte-Carlo race saw Marussia achieve their biggest success to date, with Jules Bianchi claiming two points for ninth place.

But over at Mercedes the relationship between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg continued to deteriorate.

Here’s the day’s story from Twitter.

Build-up

On the grid tribute was paid to triple world champion Sir Jack Brabham, who had passed away a week earlier.

Race

Sergio Perez’s race came to an early end after a collision with former team mate Jenson Button on lap one.

Ferrari were not pleased as Max Chilton ruined Kimi Raikkonen’s chance of a podium finish.

Meanwhile, Nico Hulkenberg opportunistically passed Kevin Magnussen into the Portier corner.

Bianchi was similarly opportunistic, squeezing past Kamui Kobayashi in what was the beginning of something special for him and Marussia.

Magnussen and Raikkonen had an incident, not their first of the season. That allowed Bianchi to score his first points in Formula 1, his team achieving a first top ten finish in their fifth season in the sport.

After the chequered flag

The Mercedes duo and their relationship was again a subject of much discussion.
