Defending drivers world champion Briton Lewis Hamilton vowed to return to Monte Carlo and win again after finishing a distant 12th in Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix.

The race was won by fellow-Briton and this year's championship leader Jenson Button of Brawn GP, ahead of his team-mate Brazilian Rubens Barrichello.

"That was one extremely tough race for me," said Hamilton. "It was not easy at all in any way and I am just glad to have finished it.

"I had hoped this weekend would see me fighting at the front again, but it was not to be and I am happy enough with my performance in the end simply because I did finish.

"During the race, I was thinking of one of the Rocky films when he said 'I just want to see the end of the fight' and I got to the flag having pushed as hard as I could throughout the race.

"Now, all I can say is that we will keep on pushing."

Hamilton started from the back of the grid and spent most of the race battling to fight his way through the back of the field.
