Lewis Hamilton survived a late collision with Max Verstappen to deliver the perfect tribute to Niki Lauda by winning an eventful Monaco Grand Prix.
Hamilton, sporting a one-off red helmet in tribute to the Mercedes non-executive chairman who died on Monday, tippy-toed his way to the chequered flag on shot tyres, claiming a nail-biting victory - his third on Monte Carlo's famous streets.
With three laps remaining, Verstappen delivered a gung-ho move for glory on the high-speed exit of the tunnel and into the chicane - Verstappen's right-front wheel hitting Hamilton's rear left in a flurry of sparks. But both men made it to the finish.
Hamilton spent much of the race taking aim at his Mercedes team for putting him on the less-durable medium tyres during the only round of stops.
"I don't know what you were thinking," he said to them over the radio with 20 laps remaining. "You need to hope for a miracle."
Yet, despite Red Bull's Verstappen hustling him all the way, and then banging wheels, Hamilton somehow managed to hold on, emulating his 2008 and 2016 victories at the principality.
Verstappen was demoted to fourth after he was hit with a five-second penalty following an earlier collision in the pit lane with Valtteri Bottas.
That promoted Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel to second with Bottas completing the podium places.
Hamilton is now 17 points clear of Bottas in his quest for a sixth world title.

Lewis Hamilton has moved back in charge of the world championship after a superb start fired him to victory at the Spanish Grand Prix.
Hamilton was handed a rare thrashing by Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas in qualifying at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya on Saturday, but the British star returned to his notorious best, winning at a canter.
British teenager Lando Norris crashed with Canadian Lance Stroll which saw the introduction of a safety car with 20 laps to run.
But Hamilton remained in complete control, crossing the line ahead of Bottas as Mercedes secured their fifth consecutive one-two in as many races.
Hamilton, who also scored a bonus point for the fastest lap, now leads Bottas by seven points in the title race.
Ferrari's disappointing campaign continued as confusion reigned over their strategy with both drivers losing out to Red Bull's Max Verstappen, who finished third. Vettel crossed the line in fourth, with team-mate Charles Leclerc fifth. Vettel is now already 48 points behind Hamilton after just five rounds.

Lewis Hamilton was beaten to pole position for Formula One's 1,000th race by ValtteriBottas.
In a nail-biting session, Bottas saw off the five-time world champion by just 0.023 seconds at the Shanghai International Circuit.
The form guide indicated that Ferrari might be the team to beat here, but after they were off the pace at the last round, Mercedes have returned to their all-conquering best.
Sebastian Vettel was a third of a second down on the Silver Arrows, with team-mate Charles Leclerc fourth. Red Bull's Max Verstappen finished fifth.
"It has been a good weekend so far," said Bottas. "I struggled to get the perfect lap in, but it was good enough."
Hamilton said: "I didn't give up and kept pushing right to the end. Valtteri has been stellar all weekend. I have struggled. There is time left on the table, but I will try and get it back tomorrow."
Lewis Hamilton has tipped Sebastian Vettel to bounce back from the latest in his expanding catalogue of mistakes.Read the full story ›
