Monaco Grand Prix: Sergio Perez of Red Bull fastest in first practice

Red Bull’s Sergio Perez set the pace in first practice at the Monaco Grand Prix from Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz. Perez used the fastest ‘soft’ tyre for his best lap, 0.119 seconds ahead of the impressive-looking Ferrari, on which Sainz was using the mediums. Perez’s team-mate Max Verstappen was third, also on the mediums, with Alpha Tauri’s Pierre Gasly fourth on softs. Sainz’s team-mate Charles Leclerc suffered a significant blow when he suffered gearbox problems after just one lap and missed the rest of the session, ending it slowest. The two-time champion was able to get the car back to the pits otherwise undamaged and returned to the track to set 13th fastest time, three places and 0.115secs ahead of team-mate Esteban Ocon.
