Frederik Vesti took pole position for the Formula 2 main race, with Victor Martin joining the Mercedes junior on the front row. Qualifying was chaotic with a total of three red flags.

Chaos in Group A

Qualifying for the first group was chaotic. Arthur Leclerc put his car hard into the wall at the last corner, causing the first red flag of the session. Just before the end, Jehan Daruvala also put his car into the wall, resulting in another red flag.

Richard Verschoor seemed fast on the streets of Monaco and went purple through the first sector before Daruvala's crash. However, the Dutchman was unable to finish his lap due to this crash and therefore finished third in the first group, behind Victor Martins (first) and Doohan (second).

Group B faster

Qualifying for Group B was slightly less chaotic. Ayumu Iwasa hit the wall lightly with five minutes to go, but was able to continue his session. Championship leader Theo Pourchaire was very fast in Monaco, but was second behind Frederik Vesti after a red flag brought the session to an early end. As Group B's fastest time was faster than Group A, Vesti will start from pole position on Sunday, with Martins next to him on the front row of the grid.
