‘It feels amazing’ – Leclerc’s verdict on snaffling pole:

‘It feels amazing’: Leclerc claims Monaco pole position as Verstappen finishes fourth – video

Preamble

Max Verstappen, Red Bull’s world champion, leads the drivers’ championship by six points but Charles Leclerc of Ferrari, currently second in the standings, is on pole in Monaco this afternoon.

Is today the day that the Monegasque Leclerc gets a victory on home roads? He was on pole last year, despite a crash in qualifying, but it turned out the shunt had done for his gearbox, and he could not even take his place on the grid to start the race.

Perhaps his luck will be better today. It’s famously difficult to overtake in Monaco, so the Ferrari driver is nicely primed to leapfrog his rival Verstappen and take the lead in the race for the 2022 title. But rain isn’t out of the question, and there will (hopefully) be some other elements of intrigue to spice up what Ferrari are hoping will be a procession. It’s on!

Lights out: 2pm UK time/3pm Monaco time
