Monaco Grand Prix grid

This is the provisional grid for the Monaco GP (3 pm). Given the fall of Sergio Pérez and Carlos Sainz at the end of Q3, parts of the Ferrari and Red Bull could be damaged. If this is the case, the parts will be replaced and the penalties will be distributed to both drivers. So Verstappen could start alongside Leclerc on the front row tomorrow. Business to follow! See you tomorrow at 3 pm for the start of the Monaco Grand Prix and another clash between Leclerc and Verstappen. Buenas tardes!

Ranking roundup: Ferrari doubled, Gasly just 17th

After a fairly uneventful Q1 and Q2, things picked up speed in Q3. Leclerc completed his benchmark lap early in the session, forcing the Red Bulls to chase the clock. Under pressure, Pérez made a mistake just before the tunnel. Following the Mexican closely, Sainz collides with him. “Perez crashed right in front of me. I saw the yellow flags just going into the corner. The car was great all weekend.” Nothing serious for the two pilots.

At the same time, Alonso hits Mirabeau. The Spanish Alpine rider will start from the 7th position. After 2021, Charles Leclerc will start from pole position again: “It’s very special. I’m very happy. My last lap before the red flag was very fast! I was 4 tenths ahead.”

On the French side, Esteban Ocon will start from the fifth row (10th). Pierre Gasly, eliminated in Q1, had to settle for a disappointing 17th place.
