Mercedes' Nico Rosberg was once again quickest during practice in Monaco, with team-mate Lewis Hamilton three tenths behind in second.

The Mercedes pair led the Ferrari's of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa with the leading Red Bull of Mark Webber fifth.

Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean were sixth and seventh whilst Jenson Button outpaced the second Red Bull of Sebastian Vettel to go eighth quickest.

The first hour of the session saw the majority of drivers pushing for single lap pace before a switch in focus for the final 30 minutes.

With the two softest compounds - supersoft and soft - in use, drivers were keen to see just how far they could push the rubber, with Hamilton completing the most laps at 51.
