Webber, Australian driver for Red Bull team, started his race from pole position and controlled the race almost throughout as the local micro-climate delivered its usual capricious weather which is moving from sunshine and blue skies to rain for the closing laps.
Driving with great control on the wheels and consistency right from the start to finish, Webber finished the 78-lap race at the pole position and pushing German formula one driver, Nico Roseberg of the Mercedes team, to second position. Spanish driver, Fernando Alonso, finished third and two-time defending world champion, Sebastian Vettel, placed fourth.
"I'm feeling incredible. It was an interesting race in Monaco," Webber said. "It was reasonably straightforward at the start, getting the gap and managing super-shifts and then it was a matter of trying to build a gap before and after the pit stops.
"The weather was threatening around the pit stop window but Nico went for it, went for the 'undercut' by stopping early, so a few people had to react to this chess move, but it's an amazing day for the team and myself, and I'm really happy to have won here again."
