- World Championship leader Lewis Hamilton secures the pole position for the Formula 1 classic in Monte Carlo.

- Third is the Dutch Max Verstappen in Red Bull before Sebastian Vettel in Ferrari.
World Champion Lewis Hamilton is in pole position at the start of the Grand Prix of Monaco on Sunday (15.10 / Sky and RTL). The Briton prevailed in qualifying against his Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas (Finland) and Max Verstappen (Netherlands / Red Bull). Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel (Heppenheim) finished fourth. For Hamilton it was the second pole of the season and the 84th of his career.
Renault driver Nico Hülkenberg (Emmerich) missed Q3 and finished eleventh. Ferrari's young star Charles Leclerc did not make it to Q2 because of a major strategic mistake by the pit crew and is now in 16th place. This is particularly bitter because the race in Monte Carlo is his home race.
