Kimi Raikkonen has won the Monaco Grand Prix - leading from start to finish - in his McLaren-Mercedes taking his second consecutive win of the season.

The finnish driver started on pole and ran a one-stop fuel strategy, and has led every lap in the past two races - to take his fourth career victory.

Second place went to Nick Heidfeld in his Williams-BMW, who made the pass for the position on Fernando Alonso in his Renault in the closing laps, and then Heidfeld's teammate Mark Webber battled with Alonso as well and got past to finish third. Both Williams drivers scored their best career finishes. Championship leader Alonso held on to finish fourth.

Juan Pablo Montoya in the second McLaren stormed through the field to come home in fifth, Ralf Schumacher finished sixth in his Toyota, and the Ferrari pair of Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello came home in seventh and eighth for the final points positions.
