With 14 laps remaining he led Rosberg and his race-long shadow Sebastian Vettel by 25.7 seconds after a brilliant performance that demonstrated who was the king of Prince Albert II's playground. The seeds of the spectacular disappointment were sown by the other standout star, the 17-year-old rookie Max Verstappen, who pulled off a couple of breathtaking overtaking moves and fought back from a pit-stop delay before misjudging his attack on Romain Grosjean's Lotus and crashing heavily at the first corner on the 64th lap.
