MONACO -- The rivalry between Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton for the Formula One title is turning into a full-blown scrap -- both on and off the track. Rosberg won the Monaco Grand Prix from pole position on Sunday to take the championship lead back from Hamilton, who won the previous four races but was left infuriated by Rosbergs sudden and late accident the day before in qualifying. The win was a fifth straight 1-2 finish for Mercedes, which has swept all six races this season, but thats the only type of harmony in the team. Tension is building, with Hamilton appearing unhappy before, during and after the race. "Its a fierce battle between me and Nico and will continue that way," he said. "Im going to keep my head up and keep pushing." Rosberg drew his teammates ire in qualifying when his late error led to a yellow flag and ended Hamiltons chances of beating his time with a final flying lap. Rosberg denied that he caused the incident intentionally and he was cleared of any wrongdoing by race stewards. He went on to clinch his second victory of the season and fifth of his career, repeating his maiden GP win from pole here in Monaco last year. He leads Hamilton by four points in the drivers standings, 122-118. Ferraris Fernando Alonso, who was fourth, is already 57 points behind Hamilton. "Its a special win, definitely, because Lewis has had the momentum with results," Rosberg said. He finished 9.2 seconds ahead of Hamilton, who was 0.4 faster than Daniel Ricciardos Red Bull. Four-time defending champion Sebastian Vettels frustrating season with Red Bull continued as he abandoned the race on lap eight with a power unit failure. Hamilton and Rosberg raced each other in their junior karting days, but they did not appear to shake hands after the race, and Hamilton looked visibly tense in the post-match race conference as he sat next to Rosberg. He revealed that he and Rosberg had not even been in the post-qualifying debriefing together on Saturday. "Nico did his big debrief before I got there, which is not what we normally do," Hamilton said. "Fortunately the engineers wrote down what Nico said." Even at the drivers pre-race parade they were at opposite ends of the circuit, and now they have six months left together until the end of the season, starting with the Canadian GP in two weeks time. Hamilton said after the race that he "drove fairly all weekend," which sounded like a veiled swipe at Rosberg. During the race, a tense Hamilton snapped back at his team when told that Ricciardo was closing on him. "I dont care about Ricciardo, whats the gap to Nico?" Hamilton said. Hamilton would certainly have attacked more on another track. But overtaking on Monacos tight and narrow 78-lap circuit -- which has the slowest average speed -- is so tough that 10 of the past 11 winners came from pole. The exception was Hamilton in 2008, the year he won the title. Hamilton had sparked the escalation in the rivalry with Rosberg when he questioned his teammates hunger on Thursday as he compared their different childhoods. Rosberg is the son of former F1 driver Keke Rosberg. "I come from a not-great place in Stevenage and lived on a couch in my dads apartment, and Nico grew up in Monaco with jets and hotels and boats," Hamilton said on Thursday. "If I were to come here believing that Nico is hungrier than me then I might as well go home." Later, Hamilton explained what hed meant. "I said what gives me the hunger is where I grew up, in comparison to where Nico grew up," he said. "I was striving to come to live (in Monaco). I used to travel around with Nico on his dads plane, I used to go on his boat, (in) his house. That gave me the desire to want that." The race itself was also eventful as eight drivers failed to finish. The safety car came out on lap one after Sergio Perez was bumped off the track by his former teammate Jenson Buttons McLaren at the Mirabeau turn. The safety car came out again on lap 26 when German driver Adrian Sutils Sauber went into the barriers on the run down to the chicane. Mercedes took the opportunity to pit both their cars, and Hamilton seemed unhappy with the timing. "We should have pitted on that lap (before)," he said. "But I knew you wouldnt call me in, guys."

The 16-year-old from New Zealand shot a final round 64 to finish at 15 under for a five-stroke victory over Karine Icher. Ko became the youngest winner of an LPGA event last year when she won the Canadian Open at the Vancouver Golf Club at age 15. With Sundays victory, she becomes the first amateur in history to win two LPGA events. Ko started the day one shot back, but shredded the course at Royal Mayfair Golf Club with five birdies on the front nine and never looked back. She had seven birdies in total and curled in a birdie putt from 16 feet out on the final hole to cap the day. "I hit a really good drive on one and I kept it to the fairway, and I think that kind of got my momentum going," Ko said. "I was in a little bit more of a pressure position (as defending champion), so I was really happy with my 64." Unfortunately winning is becoming an expensive proposition for Ko, who was born in South Korea but grew up in New Zealand. As an amateur, she cannot accept the $300,000 first prize, which instead goes to Icher. Ko has played in 14 LPGA events over the last two years, leaving almost $1 million in prize money on the table. Ko said shes still considering asking the LPGA for an exemption to let her turn pro before shes 18. "Ive got some people above me like my mom and dad. Theyre the boss, and theyre going to help me definitely make the right decision to turn pro at what time," said Ko, who shot 265 over the tournaments four rounds. "As Im only 16 its quite hard to make huge decisions. And when I turn pro its like a job, where money is all about it and every shot counts." Ko has always said her driving is the strength of her game, and proved it again this week by hitting 45 of 56 fairways and 56 of 72 greens in regulation. Icher, ranked 24th, had her best finish of the season. The 24-year-old from France carded four birdies to go with one bogey Sunday to finish 10 under for the tournament. Canada has been good to Icher, who finished 5th in July at the Manulife Classic in Waterloo, Ont. Icher said her game improved throughout the week. "I would like to play tomorrow," she said. "It was a good day today. Im very happy with my game. More putts got in." She saidd Kos feat was impressive.dddddddddddd "Shes amazing. Sixteen years-old and to win twice. She has no fear, I guess," said Icher. "Its incredible. As an amateur and so young, its great for womens golf, but not so great for us (on tour)," she laughed. Swedens Caroline Hedwall began the day with a one-shot lead, but could not match her lights out 6-under performance from the third round. "I was trying to keep up with (Ko), but at the same time I couldnt hit it as close and I couldnt make as many putts," said Hedwall, who finished at 9 under overall after shooting a 71. "She was just really impressive today." Brittany Lincicome of the U.S. wound up tied for third with Hedwall after shooting a 69. It was a disappointing tournament for the top two players on tour. No. 1 ranked Inbee Park was carving up the putting greens and held a share of the lead heading into Saturdays third round only to see her game fall apart. She finished 11 strokes back in a tie for 13th. "My putting just didnt want to go in the hole like the (first) two days," Park said. "Nothing wants to drop. You get those kind of days." Park said she switched putters for this tournament because the insert on her first one was worn out. "I dont know, I might go back to my old one," she laughed. No. 2 Stacy Lewis racked up five bogeys on her first seven holes in the first-round Thursday before withdrawing due to illness. Samantha Richdale of Kelowna, B.C., was the top Canadian. Richdale shot three-over 73 to finish the tournament tied for 62nd, 23 strokes off the pace. "I had an OK day today," Richdale said. "I struggled with my ball striking. I think I hit only eight greens, which makes things pretty tough. "I would have liked to have made a few more ups and downs, but thats the way it goes." Jessica Shepley of Oakville, Ont., ended up 72nd. She shot six-over 76 to finish 30 strokes behind Ko. "I had a lot of fun on the front side," Shepley said. "I hit it really, really well. I wish I could have made a couple of putts. I had a lot of putts I could have made and I think things could have been very different early on." The other 18 Canadians in the field, including veteran Lorie Kane of Charlottetown, did not make the cut.
