The Monegasque pilot Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) has achieved pole for Sunday’s race in the Monaco Grand Prix, fifth round of the World Cup Formula 1, while Spanish Carlos Sainz (Ferrari) will start fourth and Fernando Alonso he will start the test from the seventeenth position on the grid.
In this way, Leclerc confirmed the good feelings of the ‘Scuderia’ at home, in the Principality, all despite the accident suffered in the final section on the penultimate corner, which caused serious damage to his car and caused the red flag to be flown. Should you have to change the gearbox, you will have to serve five penalty positions on the starting grid.
In that case, the great beneficiary would be the Dutch Max verstappen (Red bull), second in the qualifying session and who will start from the first row. For his part, the Finn Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) will start third, well ahead of his teammate and current champion, the British Lewis hamilton, seventh.
While, Sainz will start from his best position starting this course, fourth, after a classification in which he came to command the times table, showing that the ‘Prancing Horse’ opts for everything in Monte Carlo.
For its part, Alonso couldn’t get past Q1, accusing the traffic and showing that he must still continue to adapt to his Alpine, which in the case of his partner Esteban Ocon allowed him to advance tenth to the next batch. Thus, the Asturian will start seventeenth, confirming his worst classification on the grid in the Principality since 2001.
