Toto Wolff sympathises with Leclerc: It's a shame for Charles

Toto Wolff says that he is "so happy" after his team locked out the front row for Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix, but he feels sorry for Charles Leclerc, who was knocked out in Q1 for the first time as a Ferrari driver.

Lewis Hamilton edged out Valtteri Bottas to take pole, but one man who would've loved to have been involved was Leclerc, in his home race.

Leclerc was left frustrated after a Ferrari error led him to an early exit, and Wolff showed sympathy for the young Moegasque, telling Sky Sports: "Shame for Charles, it's his home race and he had it in him to be fighting for front row.

"In the end it came together for us and I'm so happy. Valtteri had a sensational lap one and on lap two I don't know if he hit traffic or it was a bad lap."

Wolff also revealed what his radar is saying for tomorrow's race, with a chance of rain likely: "The latest I've heard (for tomorrow) is a 60% chance of rain but it keeps changing."
