  • Gabriele Mini (Prema) definitely loves the streets of Monaco. A year after his pole position here as a rookie, the protégé ofAlpine has started again in 2024, thus postulating for new success in the Principality.
  • Placed in the first group of these qualifications, the Italian took advantage of the improvement of the track in the final moments to place himself at the top of the ranking. In the fight against Luke Browning (Hitech GP) and Leonardo Fornaroli (Trident), Gabriele Mini ended up putting everyone in agreement with a time of 1'23, almost three tenths behind his closest pursuer.
  • We still had to wait for the second group to pass to find out if they were going to take pole position or start on the front row. Luckily, the second part was truncated by red flags, the last of which less than a minute from the checkerboard which put an end to the hopes of Dino Beganovic (Prema) and Arvid Lindblad (Prema). The neutralization caused by Charlie Wurz (Jenzer), the Swede and the Englishman were forced to cut their effort leaving the head of the group to Christian Mansell who offers ART Grand Prix a first row in Monaco with his lap in 1'24 “921.
  • For his part, Sami Meguetounif (Trident) was not finished, being quickly removed from the fight for pole position. Placed in the second group, the Tricolore got away with 7e time only which sends him back to the 14e place on the rack.
  • Nikola Tsolov (ART Grand Prix) will start in pole position for the Sprint Race this Saturday (10:45 a.m.).
