F1: presentation of the first two free practice sessions of the Monaco Grand Prix

You will be able to follow all the activities of the Monaco Grand Prix on RDS.ca in our multiplex environment.

Monegasque Charles Leclerc set the best time on Friday in the 2nd free practice session of the Monaco Grand Prix, 8th round of the Formula 1 World Championship.

The Ferrari driver relegated the Briton Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), who had been the fastest during the first session run earlier, to 188/1000th. The Spaniard Fernando Alonso finished 3rd, almost half a second from the Monegasque.

The championship leader, the Dutchman Max Verstappen, only took the 4th best time, ahead of the Briton Lando Norris, in great form in recent weeks at the wheel of his McLaren, 5th in Monaco.

On the narrow Monegasque track, on which several drivers came close to the barriers placed around the circuit, the second Ferrari, that of the Spaniard Carlos Sainz, finished 6th.

Among the French, Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly finished 14th and 17th respectively, far from the best.

On Saturday, the drivers will take part in a third and final free practice session, before competing in qualifying.

As usual in the streets of the principality, the race will start even earlier than elsewhere during qualifying, since overtaking is rare in the race.
