Lewis Hamilton pleased with Monaco Grand Prix practice efforts

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton says he had a "really good" opening day at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Hamilton, who is aiming for his fifth straight race win, edged team-mate Nico Rosberg to set the fastest time in first practice, but finished behind Fernando Alonso in a rain-disrupted second session.

The Briton is a big fan of the famous Monaco circuit, describing it as "the coolest track ever".
