Charles Leclerc managed to secure pole position at his home circuit. Max Verstappen could not keep up with the pace. The Dutchman will start from P4 for the Monaco Grand Prix. The first starting row will be red on Sunday.

Qualifying ended in dramatic fashion for Red Bull Racing. Sergio Perez looked fast all weekend, but in the closing stages of Q3 the Mexican ended up in the wall. Carlos Sainz, who was driving right behind the Red Bull, crashed into the rear of the RB18. The red flag meant that no one could finish their lap.

Leclerc will start from pole, an important position on the Monaco circuit, where overtaking is difficult. Sainz will start alongside his teammate from P2, putting Ferrari in a good position to win the Grand Prix. Perez and Verstappen complete the second row of the grid.

After the success in Spain, Mercedes seems to have a slightly harder time in Monaco again. Lando Norris beat both drivers for P5. Lewis Hamilton will start from P8, while George Russell performed a little better again and will start next to Norris from the third row. Alpine's drivers will also start in the top ten, while Sebastian Vettel secured a surprising ninth starting spot.
