Of course, Monaco GP was a race is suitable for harder tyres (mean Soft) but when starting Rubens was advantage of Super Soft to overtake Kimi. I think Kimi should be better pole when his compound tyres were Super soft-Soft-Soft.
Who can explain me why the Monaco GP used 2 chequer flag in stead of 1 like others?
That's very hard to understand, I'm guessing English is not your first language. So if I've misunderstood you then you'll have to try again.
Brawn gambled on the Super-Softs lasting well enough get through to the first pitstop. As did Vettel. This was a fine gamble if you were in the lead like Jenson and able to pace/look after your tyres. For Vettel and Rubens the SuperSoft tyres went off quickly due to following other cars. Rubens and Vettel then made everyone behind them follow in a procession until they were forced to pit. BOTH Brawns and Vettel pitted earlier than intended due to tyre wear issues.
Kimi's tyres didn't suffer but there was no way he could pass Rubens. Kimi cost himself 2nd place when he was beaten by Rubens to the first corner.
IMO Brawn risked the Super Softs at the start to get track position (1-2). The optimum strategy (best laptime) for tyre usage was Soft-Soft-SuperSoft. But by getting the all important track position Brawn GP could manage the early use of Supersofts at a sub optimal time, whilst ruining the laps of those on the fastest tyre.
Quite brilliant really.
Ferrari didn't lose that, Brawn won it.
As for the chequered flags, no idea what you mean but if the guy wants to wave a hundred flags what does it matter?
