Charles Leclerc is continuing to prove he is the king of Monaco, earning P1 for the second year in a row after today’s qualifying sessions. Leclerc owned the fastest times in each one of the Qualifying sessions, with his fastest lap coming in Q3 (1:11.376). His teammate, Carlos Sainz, managed to qualify in second after receiving a fine and a slap on the wrist for blocking Lance Stroll in FP3. Red Bull’s Sergio Perez rounds out the top three, with Max Verstappen finishing in P4. If you want to bet on tomorrow’s Monaco Grand Prix, you’ll be able to through any of the online casinos in Michigan.

Monaco is a slow corner track, and no one takes slow corners better than Ferrari–so it makes sense how Leclerc and Sainz managed to finish one-two. Max Verstappen was hoping to find himself amongst the top three, yet was seemingly dealing with car troubles throughout all three rounds. He always seemed to be a couple hundredths of a second behind the Ferrari’s, and it shows in the final result. He would’ve had one more lap to make up some ground in Q3, yet a spin-out by Sergio Perez while heading into the tunnel (followed by a collision with Carlos Sainz) caused a red flag that ended the session early.

The first car after the Ferraris and the Red Bulls is a McLaren–Lando Norris is continuing his great season, qualifying P5 for Sunday’s race. This is Norris’ third time qualifying in the top-5 this season, which really puts the pressure on fellow McLaren teammate Daniel Ricciardo. Ricciardo has only made it past Q2 three times this season and has only finished in the points once, thanks to a sixth-place finish in Australia. Ricciardo’s struggles continued today, qualifying in P14.
Mercedes continues to hang around the top 10, with George Russell qualifying P6 and Lewis Hamilton qualifying P8. While that would be a good result for nearly any other team, it gets chalked up as another laborious showing from this Mercedes team, who struggled to keep pace with the top drivers all weekend.
