1 Monaco Grand Prix LIVE!
In three F1 outings and two F2 races around these streets, the Monegasque driver is still yet to reach the chequered flag and yet leads a Ferrari front-row lockout after Saturday’s qualifying session.
Red Bull were left ruing a missed opportunity to put Max Verstappen alongside Leclerc, who has dominated all weekend, when Sergio Perez crashed into the barrier at the end of Q3.
Carlos Sainz skidded into the Mexican at the entrance of the tunnel yet still claimed second place in qualifying, with Perez third ahead of Verstappen and McLaren’s Lando Norris.
Lewis Hamilton starts eighth as Mercedes, with George Russell in sixth, admitted last night that Monaco is the worst possible circuit they could have faced after appearing to improve around Barcelona a week ago.
While the tight and twisty streets of the iconic venue could prove harder than ever to overtake around, the potential for rain and safety cars should make this race another that fans cannot take their eyes off in this fascinating 2022 campaign.
