F1 | LECLERC in POLE POSITION – the magic of the Monegasque, Hamilton 7th

Charles Leclerc made a real magic today on the street circuit of the Principality of Monaco managing to pocket the pole position in his home (and what a thrill!) Snatched for 230 thousandths from the young Verstappen. The young Ferrari talent, however, took pole position home in a somewhat particular way: entering Q3 Charles completed a record lap stopping the clock at 1: 10: 346 already in the first attempt. 13 seconds from the end of Q3, when all the cars were out on the track to push the pistons to the maximum, Leclerc slammed into the guardrail of turn 15, impacting the number # 16 directly against the wall and causing a red flag that he put an early end to the qualification allowing him to conquer the first place with confidence. A pole that has an almost victory flavor since it has been missing for 1 year and 6 months (from Mexico 2019).

Bottas and Verstappen were behind him and were improving, probably not significantly since Leclerc himself declared at the press conference that he was making a quick lap to try to improve further (and he was succeeding!) The fact is that the qualification was ended early with the poleman who had to find an alternative way to get to the pits where everyone was waiting for him.

Unknown point for the gearbox, crashing Leclerc also damaged the rear of the car, if a change of components were to be necessary he would face a penalty of 5 positions, a concern that grips him since he has repeated it several times also at a press conference.

F1 | Ferrari amazes everyone and scores a double with Leclerc-Sainz in Monaco, 3rd Hamilton

Anonymous Hamilton who finished in 7th position more than 7 tenths from Charles and half a second from his teammate, certainly not his best form. An excellent performance instead for Valtteri Bottas who finished 3rd behind Max who finished 2nd. Excellent result also for Giovinazzi who managed to bring his Alfa to Q3 (he could not do it since Turkey 2020) and will therefore start 10th. Below, as always, you will find the complete ranking, and in a few hours stay tuned because the statements that Leclerc has just released to very few people around the world will be released, including us who were present! Share and do not miss! See you tomorrow!
