Lewis Hamilton dedicates Monaco Grand Prix victory to Niki Lauda

Lewis Hamilton survived a late collision with Max Verstappen to deliver the perfect tribute to Niki Lauda – his third ever win at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Victory saw Hamilton extend his championship lead over Mercedes teammate Bottas to 17 points, while Vettel has fallen to a full 55 points back.

Before the race a minute’s silence was held to honour the three-times world champion Niki Lauda, who died on Monday.

Hamilton had spoken emotionally about his relationship with Lauda, who as the non-executive chairman at Mercedes had been instrumental in bringing him to he team in 2013, and had said he wanted to take the win for his friend.
