Notes:

Jenson Button was withdrawn from the race on medical advice following his accident in Saturday practice.

Frentzen put his Sauber in the barrier on the exit from the swimming pool on the first lap, resulting in a short safety car deployment to recover the debris. Unusually for Monaco, he was the only retirement due to accident throughout the race.

Montoya got past Raikkonen at the start to slot into second place behind his team mate, Ralf Schumacher. He held this position until the first round of pitstops, when a series of extremely quick laps enabled him to take the lead.

Ralf's second set of tyres didn't seem to work for him and he slipped backwards in the middle stint, losing 3rd place to his brother who pitted some 10 laps later than the Williams duo.

Montoya held the lead through the second set of pitstops and the final stint saw Raikkonen following close behind but unable to find a way past.

All in all an uneventful Monaco Grand Prix - I can't remember a single overtaking manoevre except for lapping - but I'm well satisfied with a Montoya victory, it's been a long time since Monza 2001!
