Lewis Hamilton claimed victory at the Monaco GP today, ending his hoodoo at the track in an incident filled race.

Eight year's after his last win at F1's most famous track, the British driver edged Daniel Ricciardo to first place, with the Australian driver feeling robbed after the race.

Ricciardo would have arguably claim first if it wasn't for a bungled final pit-stop, where tyres were not ready for his arrival.

Afterwards, the Red Bull driver said that he felt 'screwed' after the mix up.

Sergio Perez of Force India seized third place, giving his team their first podium finish of the season.

"Thank god that today went the way I that I hoped," said Hamilton, after winning for the first time since last October's US GP.

"Honestly I'm kind of lost for words. I prayed for a day like this and it came true."

 The win means Hamilton is now 24 points off leader Nico Rosberg, who finished further back in seventh.
