The onboard camera on Webber's car shows some more rain on the car and it's gone very dark. You can understand why the teams were cautious.

Alonso hugs Webber and congratulates him on his victory, while Webber stands on his car and salutes his team. once he takes his helmet off he looks delighted, while Rosberg seems pretty pleased with second place. Prince Albert applauds as Webber climbs the steps up to the royal box.

Webber holds his trophy aloft with a big smile on his face. The result actually means that Alonso is now the outright leader of the championship, however, and he looks equally happy on the podium

The Australian national anthem rings out in Monaco as the flags are raised. It's a popular win on email too as Denise says:

"I am over the moon that Mark won. WELL DONE MARK in a very difficult race. Knew you could do it."

After a pose for photos it's Alonso who breaks rank first to run on to the track and spray his team in champagne. Webber is next to do so, and as he takes a well deserved swig it's time for our live coverage to come to an end. Thanks for following us, apologies we couldn't use all of your comments and questions but there were so many! Hopefully you got a feeling for the tension even if we were left without much overtaking.

I seem to say it every race at the moment but what a season we're having. Make sure you stay on for all the reaction and keep an eye on our Twitter feed @ESPNF1 for the talk in the paddock. Bye for now.

Lap 78

In to the final lap and Webber leads Rosberg by 0.6s. Rosberg trying to put the pressure on but can't do it. The top four are so close but there's no real opportunities.

MARK WEBBER WINS THE MONACO GRAND PRIX! Six different winners from the opening six races, and the top four were covered by just 1.3s.

Hamilton comes home fifth and Massa sixth - 6.1s back. It's a good weekend for Force India too as di Resta is seventh and Hulkenberg eighth. Raikkonen finishes ninth ahead of Senna in the final points' paying position.

Lap 77

Two to go, the top six is covered by 4.4s. Perez is behind Massa (a lap down) but quicker than the Ferrari at present. I'm going to tempt fate and say I can't see anyone being able to make a pass here...

Lap 76

Three laps to go and still a threat of a final shower. Hamilton is told about it, but we're down in to the 1m20s again on a dry track

Lap 75

Alonso close behind Rosberg, but there's not been any obvious area where you think somebody looks strong enough to pass.

Button is out after that spin and puncture, if it wasn't clear

Lap 74

Webber seems more confident again and is down in to the 1m22s. They were all so close but now starting to spread out a little bit again.

Vergne is very slow on intermediates because the rain didn't come down hard.
