Rosberg heads FP1 in Monaco

Nico Rosberg, on pole in Bahrain and Spain, rose to the top of the FP1 order at the halfway mark with a time of 1:17.005. A few minutes later, as the track got faster and drivers become more confident of grip levels, he dropped that by nearly a second to 1:16.195. That time remained unbeaten in the last half hour as many drivers set about long-runs on the soft compound Pirelli tyre.

Rosberg doubles up at Monaco
