Monaco GP - Qualifying: Charles Leclerc crashes but takes pole in Monaco

Charles Leclerc managed to set the fastest lap time in his hometown, Monte Carlo, just a few moments before crashing at the exit of the Swimming Pool, the exact same way Nicholas Latifi crashed this morning in FP3. Max Verstappen in P2, followed by Valtteri Bottas in P3.

Great performance by Ferrari overall, as Carlos Sainz placed himself in P4, just in front of his former teammate Lando Norris in P5, followed by Pierre Gasly in P6. Lewis Hamilton in P7, who didn't manage to extract the pace from his Mercedes, as he seemed to be struggling since Thursday practice. Completing the top 10, Sebastian Vettel in P8, not a huge surprise, as he managed to be inside the top 10 in all practice sessions since Thursday, Sergio Perez in P9, and Antonio Giovinazzi in P10.

Eliminated in Q2: Esteban Ocon (P11), Daniel Ricciardo (P12), Lance Stroll (P13), Kimi Raikkonen (P14) and George Russell (P15).

Eliminated in Q1: Yuki Tsunoda (P16), Fernando Alonso (P17), Nicholas Latifi (P18), Nikita Mazepin (P19) and Mick Schumacher (P20), whose car wasn't ready early enough for him to participate in Q1, after his crash in FP3.
