"All the other wins I had this year," said the title-leading Spaniard, referring to Malaysia, Bahrain and Imola, "I led from start to finish."
The 23-year-old Alonso, although hunting an ailing Kimi Raikkonen down, led only when it mattered - on the last lap, after the McLaren crashed.
He grinned: "For me, this is a much better feeling."
Asked how he felt after driving through Kimi's debris, Fernando added: "I was obviously happy for myself. I think my car was quicker than the McLaren today."
His boss, Flavio Briatore, denied that both he and Alonso failed to show sufficient 'sympathy' for Kimi.
The Italian glared: "Did anyone show any for us in Monaco? We did our job and Fernando was first place at the end." -GMM
