Verstappen Speeds To Monaco Pole

Oracle Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen will begin Sunday’s Monaco Grand Prix from the pole position, after swiping the top spot away from Fernando Alonso and Charles Leclerc. Alonso held provisional pole until Verstappen came back with a whopping 1:11.365 second lap time to steal the Aston Martin driver’s thunder by just under a tenth of a second. “We knew it was going to be a bit of a struggle this weekend, but everything came together in the end,” Verstappen said. “I clipped a few barriers but I’m happy to be on pole here for the first time. Verstappen’s teammate and defending Monaco winner Sergio Perez will start 11th after wrecking out in Q1.
