Lewis Hamilton dominated today's Formula Three Euroseries race in Monaco, leading from pole to flag in a display of strength at the Mediterranean circuit

Hamilton Dominates in Monaco

Hamilton made a quick start to lead teammate Adrian Sutil into St. Devote, with James Rossiter moving up one spot past Loic Duval, who was just ahead of Franck Perera and Fabio Carbone as the pack headed up the hill towards Casino Square.

The order at the front was to remain throughout the race, although further back in the pack Thomas Holzer came around the Swimming Pool too fast, hitting the kerb and launching across the track and into the wall on lap six.

With his broken car stuck in the middle of the track due to a broken right suspension, a safety car was called for, undoing the good work of Hamilton at the front, who already had a substantial lead over his teammate.

It mattered little - as soon as the green flags were displayed Hamilton tore off once more, rebuilding the lead he had lost at an initial rate of a second a lap.

Atila Abreu repeated Holzer's accident a few laps later, but was able to turn his car in a little better, lessening the damage.

As he limped back to the pits and retirement, Sutil posted the race's fastest lap, but Hamilton replied in kind one lap later to set up a strong win for the Briton, who lengthens his lead in the championship to thirteen points over his teammate.
