The Australian led from pole to flag on the way resisting pressure from Sebastian Vettel's Ferrari

"Doesn't feel great, but it's only one race".

As is tradition, the Monaco race took place just hours before the Indy 500.

"I've got loss of power, " the 28-year-old suddenly announced on the team radio, and immediately began limping the vehicle around the track about 30km/h slower than his previous speed.
