Ranking Qualifications Monaco Grand Prix 2024:

  • Home, Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) delighted his fans. The Monegasque danced between the rails of Monaco to achieve pole position for the 2024 Monaco Grand Prix this Saturday. Charles Leclerc signs his 3rd pole at home (after 2021 and 2022). It's as much as Michael Schumacher, Sir Stirling Moss and Niki Lauda on the Rock!
  • Once is not custom, Max Verstappen (Red Bull) is in trouble! The number 1 hit the rail at Ste-Dévote at the end of Q3 and did no better than a meager 6th time. He will have difficulty winning on Sunday because the two Ferraris of Leclerc and Carlos Sainz as well as both McLaren byOscar piastri et Lando Norris will be before him, as well as the Mercedes by George Russell.
  • In the fight between the “small” teams, RB and Williams benefited from very great pilots in the person of Yuki tsunoda and Alex Albon. The Japanese and the British dominated their respective teammates Daniel Ricciardo et Logan sargeant to get into Q3, just behind Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes).
  • The Alpine had a beautiful Saturday. Even if Esteban Ocon missed the passage to Q3 by a smidge, his teammate Pierre Gasly entered the top 10 for the first time this year. The Normand missed his last turn and recorded the 10th time.
  • Already out in Q1 at Imola last week, Fernando Alonso (Aston Martin) has not taken his head out of the Mediterranean water. The Spanish veteran failed to improve at the end of Q1 and set the 16th time.
  • Starting last in Monaco in 2023, Sergio Pérez (Red Bull) falls back into his faults. The Mexican has had a series of disappointments in recent races and the meeting in the Principality promises to be difficult, because he will only start 18th, only followed by the Saubers who bring up the rear.

  • The 2024 Monaco Grand Prix will kick off on Sunday at 14 p.m. and can be followed in live text on AUTOhebdo.fr.

3rd pole position at home for Charles Leclerc, let's hope it materializes better than the previous 2. One thing is certain, it is difficult to imagine a new Red Bull victory this Sunday as the fight seems to be between Ferrari and McLaren with a new front row for Piastri!
