- Ferrari occupy front row of grid with Carlos Sainz second
- Sergio Pérez error ends session early; Max Verstappen is fourth
Charles Leclerc certainly had the feel for his home streets with some fine touch and judgment to secure pole for the Monaco Grand Prix. He has every chance to see off the curse that has blighted his luck here. Better still for Ferrari’s Monégasque driver, qualifying ended with the track reminding his rivals that it punishes the tiniest of errors, with a two-car crash ending the session and preventing title rival, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, from doing better than fourth on the grid.
Leclerc beat his teammate, Carlos Sainz, into second, with Red Bull’s Sergio Pérez in third but only after the two had gone out on their final hot laps.
