Exciting event produced two safety cars, a 10 laps from home after the incident and Jaime Alguersuari in his Toro Rosso and Renault Vitaly Petrov.

At this stage, the three leaders Vettel Ferrari and McLaren's Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button, were separated by seconds after the side by side, a row that the procedure for seven rounds.

However, with the ambulance to attend Alguersuari and Petrov, he heard was removed, the race had to be a red flag with six laps to go.

The remaining cars will be doubled again in the network, how the mechanics were allowed to attend them, including putting new tires.

Restart behind the safety car for a ride, he left five others and not surprisingly, Vettel managed to push Alonso and Button.

German 23 years now has a phenomenal advantage of 58 points over McLaren's Lewis Hamilton was involved in two incidents and safety car twice came under investigation by the stewards.

Normally, when the sun shines over the duchy, a race that has generally been following the procession.

But that was not the case here.

Fortunately, the pre-race fears of super-soft new Pirelli tires that have been here permanently for the first time a handful of laps is not satisfied.

If it did, it could lead to even more chaos in the case where there was enough effort to create a thriller.

The beginning was fairly routine, except for seven-time world champion and five-time winner Michael Schumacher Monaco lost five seats, fell from fifth to tenth, when he was out of the toes at the first corner Ste Devote.

The 42-year-old immediately regained a place in Hamilton send round inside the Loews hairpin, but only for a formidable movement audacity Briton on lap 10 at Ste Devote to regain ninth.

Both men were experiencing a lot of drama that unfolded as Schumacher retired later, stopping in the middle of the floor of the Rascasse.

This time, it was legitimate, his Mercedes stalled, not as was the case in 2006 when he pretended to an incident in qualifying to try to take the initiative.

As for Hamilton, just before the premature departure of Michael Schumacher on lap 34, the British had tried to shoot inside of Felipe Massa in his Ferrari around the Loews hairpin, as they fought for eighth place .

Unlike his ex-wife daring it not to pay dividends in the form of bits of both cars were disconnected.

Hamilton is still not enough because the car is clearly one of some concern, the British went through a tunnel in Brazil.

Adding insult to injury, Massa went wide at the balls which are then sucked him in a hazard, its new car in full sun with a mangled left.

He brought the safety car in the game for the first time, even before Schumacher had stopped and was pushed down the pit straight withdraw from the flights.

In this phase, all drivers, including Hamilton, running 11 instead, was shot and Rubens Barrichello 67 seconds off the leading trio in fourth was in a dominant position in the front.

When two of these 11 pitted, and left nine on the same round, accumulating behind the safety car, which is facing after a handful of laps.

Hamilton's bid for the podium was sabotaged, however, the guards gave him a drive-through penalty for causing a collision with Massa.

In subsequent rounds, with the button that uses a plan with three stops against two judgments of Alonso and Vettel for one remarkably, the trio got together 16 laps from home.

It became a battle line was on the cards, including Vettel was the tires that have been modified to meet the 16.

Ten laps to have come to turn a series of cars fighting for the minor instead of behind them, which led to the accident Alguersuari, who ran behind Hamilton, and Petrov.

Even after the resumption, after a delay of 21 minutes, Williams was on stage as Pastor Maldonado tried to pass Hamilton at Ste Devote, causing the strike in Venezuela and the McLaren turn into a barrier.

This resulted in a second investigation by the Commissioners of Hamilton, who also seek an incident with Kamui Kobayashi, who finished fifth behind Mark Webber of Red Bull, Adrian Sutil and seventh place.

Renault Nick Heidfeld, Rubens Barrichello in his Williams and Toro Rosso, Sebastien Buemi completed the top-10 points scorers.

"The race was fun inside the car.

"The only chance of winning this competition was to stay away, and I had pressure on Fernando and Jenson behind.

"We then took the group who crashed in front of us ran off, and finally we changed tires again.

"I said the place is crazy. Roulette wheels have spun a lot last night and today kept on spinning.

"But I am happy to add my name to the list of winners here."

Button, who had led after the first stop, and opened a gap on Vettel, until the security incident the first car was left with regret.

"It 's been fun for a couple of laps before the safety car came out first, because it looked really good," said Button.

"We decided to stop three, jumping Seb at first, but when the safety car came out for the first time just as bad.
