The 2014 Formula One standings has Nico Rosberg in first place and he has the FI points lead over Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton after winning the Grand Prix of Monaco this weekend and the two may have exposed some drama on the team with the pay things played out and the next race on the schedule is the Grand Prix of Canada and that comes on Sunday, June 8.
Rosberg has two wins this season and he now has a four point lead over Lewis Hamilton, who has won four races and is second with 118 points. The two have an extensive lead over Fernando Alonso, who has 61 points, while Daniel Ricciardo is fourth and Nico Hulkenberg is fifth ahead of Sebastian Vettel. The race over the weekend in Monaco had some drama, as Rosberg finished qualifying in first place after some controversy on his qualifying run that left Hamilton in second and Hamilton had some choice words in the media for his teammate.
The two have finished one-two in the past five races for Mercedes and while most teams would be happy about that, Hamilton was not so cheerful about how pole qualifying went and also how he finished second. The recent history at Monaco made the pole winner the likely champ at the event and that is why Hamilton was so furious with Rosberg, as he made an error late in his run before the race and it forced the yellow flag and did not give Hamilton the chance to get the top spot.
The win was the second for Rosburg this season and the fifth of his career and now Hamilton will be looking to rebound his next time out. The two have been written about as rivals and the drama on the Mercedes team was media fodder over the weekend and likely will continue after Hamilton finished 9.2 seconds behind Rosberg.
