Dani Ricciardo absolutely dominates in Monaco Grand Prix qualifying
Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull) will start from pole in the 76th edition of the Monaco Grand Prix, the sixth round of the 2018 Formula 1 World Championship. It was his just second pole position in F1 career, the first one he took two years ago in Monaco.
Ricciardo was absolutely dominant at Monte-Carlo street circuit, being fastest in all Practice sessions and then in all three qualifying rounds. In a fact, both Red Bulls were the fastest but Ricciardo’s teammate Max Verstappen made a mistake in the third practice session, kissing the wall and damaging a car. His #33 RB14 wasn’t ready for qualifying and he will start from the back of the field tomorrow.
Ricciardo fastest lap in Q3 was 1.10. 810. He will share the front row with Sebastian Vettel (Scuderia Ferrari), who was 0.229 seconds slower than Australian driver. Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) and Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) will share the second row.
Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) was the fifth fastest, ahead of Esteban Ocon (Force India). Fernando Alonso (McLaren) and Carlos Sainz Jr (Renault) will share the fourth row, in front of Sergio Perez (Force India) and Pierre Gasly (Toro Rosso).
