GP Monaco: Leclerc on pole at home, Verstappen distant 6th

The Principality of Monaco is over the moon with the pole position of the country’s son, Charles Leclerc. The Monegasque signed the third pole on home soil of his career with a time of 1:10.270. The Ferrari driver has a perfect chance to finally climb to the top of the podium at home.

The Ferraris and McLarens occupy the first two rows since Leclerc will start alongside Oscar Piastri who missed pole by a tenth. Carlos Sainz is third ahead of his former teammate Lando Norris. Who from Maranello or Woking will win on the Rock this Sunday?

Behind George Russell (Mercedes), Max Verstappen had to settle for a disappointing sixth place in his Red Bull. The Dutchman complained of a very slippery car and was trapped by hitting the wall at Sainte-Dévote. Barring a miracle, the reigning champion should not win this Sunday.

Verstappen in any case did better than Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), seventh ahead of Yuki Tsunoda (RB), Alex Albon (Williams) and Pierre Gasly which allows Alpine to reach Q3 for the first time this season.

Q1 had two choice victims. Fernando Alonso (Aston Martin) was narrowly eliminated and is classified in sixteenth position. But, above all, Sergio Perez (Red Bull), winner in 2022, completely missed his qualifying and will start in an abysmal eighteenth place. Sunday promises to be long for the Mexican.

The start of the 2022 Monaco GP will be given tomorrow afternoon at 3:00 p.m.
