Christian Horner labels Max Verstappen’s epic qualifying run as ‘one of his best laps EVER’ to claim pole position… but world champion says he ‘doesn’t care’ unless he goes on to win Monaco Grand Prix

Christian Horner has insisted Max Verstappen’s lap to take pole position at the Monaco Grand Prix was one of his best qualifying laps ever. The defending world champion came from 0.2s down from Fernando Alonso after two sectors of the last lap to pip the Spaniard by 0.08s and secure his first ever pole at the iconic circuit. ‘I think that is one of the best laps he’s ever driven in qualifying,’ Horner said via Sky Sports. Of 68 races at Monaco, 58 have been won by a driver on the front row. But only two of the last seven have come from the pole sitter.
