The Renault driver's crash caused the late red flag during the thrilling race in the famous Principality.

"Vitaly is okay," team boss Eric Boullier said.

"He complained only about leg problems, but the doctors say nothing is broken. He has been taken to hospital for observation, but it seems only that his legs are bruised."

Indeed, a Renault spokesman said the Russian's ankle was examined and "no fracture" was diagnosed.

"He should be back in the paddock within a few hours," he added.

"Maybe it's because I'm black

Lewis Hamilton

Sebastian Vettel's victory was his first in Monaco, extending his runaway championship lead to 58 points.

The crown for the angriest driver goes to Lewis Hamilton, who was livid after the race in the wake of several on-track incidents and stewards' enquiries.

"Maybe it's because I'm black," he told the BBC, jokingly hypothesising the FIA officials' interest in his on-track antics. "That's what (comedian) Ali-G says."
