Monaco Grand Prix qualifying chaos as Sergio Perez and Carlos Sainz crash before Charles Leclerc takes pole

CHARLES LECLERC took pole ahead of Sunday’s Formula One Monaco Grand Prix after Sergio Perez’s crash brought qualifying to a halt. Perez spun out at turn seven just before the tunnel, smashing his back wing into the barrier. Leclerc’s team-mate Carlos Sainz wasn’t too far behind the Mexican and his back tyre collided with the Red Bull. Leclerc will start on pole in his hometown after clocking in a time of 1:12.569. On the qualifying result, Leclerc said: “I’m so incredibly happy. Perez’s spin-out wasn’t the only incident in Q3 with two-time F1 champion Fernando Alonso crashing head-first into a barrier. Sainz joins Leclerc on the front of the grid followed by the two Red Bulls.
