Rosberg tops Monaco practice

Nico Rosberg ended the first day of practice in Monaco in the usual position, topping the second session Thursday ahead of Lewis Hamilton and Rubens Barrichello.

F1 Grand Prix of Monaco - Practice

Barrichello lead Felipe Massa and Hamilton in a strangely calm first session on the narrow street circuit. But the second session brought the excitement, with Rosberg finally winning out after a multi-player battle for the top spot.

While practice reveals little, Lewis Hamilton and Felipe Massa clearly looked to be taking advantage of Monaco's unique characteristics to put pressure on the Brawns and Red Bulls.

It should make for an interesting qualifying session as F1's marquee race always promises to shake up the field.

The fun continues Saturday.
