Max Verstappen pips Fernando Alonso to seal Monaco Grand Prix pole position

The jewel in the crown of Formula 1 takes place this weekend as the 20 drivers all head to the streets of Monte Carlo fr the Monaco Grand Prix 2023.

Last weekend’s Imola race was cancelled due to the disastrous flooding in the region but the battle for the 2023 championship continues across the border this Sunday. Max Verstappen has once again sealed another pole position after a dramatic weekend saw Lewis Hamilton crash in the final practice session.

Verstappen’s teammate, dubbed ‘King of the Streets’ after all his Grand Prix wins have been achieved on street circuits, crashed early in qualifying and sent him out of contention for a top spot in Q1. Charles Leclerc, who has often known poor luck at his home race, has qualified in third, behind Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso while Esteban Ocon has earned his highest qualifying position of the year coming in fourth.

Where does the Monaco Grand Prix take place?

One of the most historic and prestigious races in motosport takes place around the streets of Monte Carlo and has been held since 1950. It is an incredibly narrow street circuit and one where overtaking is near impossible and in the 2003 Grand Prix, there were zero passing moves. The circuit rewards millimetric accuracy and is a challenge all drivers love but can be a mixed bag for viewers back at home depending how many over-taking risks their favourite driver plans on taking.
