Lewis Hamilton was forced to give up his chase of Nico Rosberg in Monaco after getting some debris in his eye.

Nico Rosberg won the Monaco Grand Prix from pole position on Sunday to take the overall championship lead from his teammate Lewis Hamilton, who came second to give Mercedes a fifth straight 1-2 finish.
The German driver clinched his second victory of the season and fifth of his career, making a strong start and holding off Hamilton to repeat his maiden GP win from pole here in Monaco last year.
“The pressure was on all the way but I kept it cool and was able to win,” said Rosberg, who celebrated by hugging his team engineers.Daniel Ricciardo, Fernando Alonso, Formula 1, Lewis Hamilton, Monaco GP, Nico Hulkenberg, Nico Rosberg

Nico Rosberg will keep his Monaco GP pole position after the stewards decided to take no further action against the German after his incident at Mirabeau.
The stewards decided that “no offence was committed by the driver of car No. 6,” and by way of explanation said that they had examined video and telemetry, and could find no evidence of any offence.
While the Mercedes team can breathe a sigh of a relief, there is no question that the affair has ramped up tension between Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton, which could translate to an interesting start tomorrow.Formula 1, Monaco GP, Nico Rosberg
