Hamilton sure Red Bull's wings can be clipped

Lewis Hamilton is relieved Red Bull have not translated their domination in qualifying into racing as it means the rest of the field are still in contention.

Red Bull have started on pole in all six races this season, and on Sunday Mark Webber led from start to finish ahead of team-mate Sebastian Vettel to win the Monaco Grand Prix.

It was the Australian's second victory in the space of eight days after his victory in Spain and the Red Bull pair now head the drivers' standings on 78 points to lead Fernando Alonso and reigning world champion Jenson Button by three and eight points respectively.

Hamilton, who was fifth in Monaco, said: "If they had also won every race they would be miles ahead by now. We've got a chance."
