Published

on

The dominant Daniel Ricciardo made a stunning lap-time in qualifying to take Monaco Grand Prix pole position. The Australian set his qualifying lap on the first session in Q3 was a 1:10.810. Made an overall new lap record for the Monaco street circuit, he was the only man entering the 1:10s.

Sebastian Vettel made his best lap-time in final attempt of the Q3 – 1:11.039. Championship leader Lewis Hamilton took P3 for Mercedes.

Max Vertsappen’s smash in practice meant he had to sit out and the Dutchman will be on the back row.

Daniel Ricciardo: “It’s good. We sent a statement on Thursday and been quickest in every session. The race tomorrow and then we will celebrate.

“There is still a lot of fire in this belly. I’ve done everything I can so far, let’s finish the job tomorrow. I’m pumped, it’s been a good few days.”

Lewis Hamilton: “Congratulations to Daniel. They’ve had the pace all weekend and we knew that would be the case.

“I gave it everything I could. I was up a little bit on the last lap but wasn’t able to hold onto it.

“It’s still a long race ahead of us tomorrow. I don’t think Red Bull have tried the other tyres yet so it will be interesting to see how we all go.”

Interestingly Sebastian Vettel did not park his Ferrari alongside Ricciardo and Hamilton’s on the starting grid and also not participated in grid interview session.
