After a crazy classification of the Monaco Grand Prix, Charles Leclerc made sure to start on the fifth date of the World Cup F1, although it damaged his Ferrari after hitting the guard-rail in the last minutes of qualifying.

Charles LeclercThanks to the work of Leclerc, who has been very firm since the beginning of the weekend, the Scuderia starts again from the first position of the grid after two years since the previous pole was in the 2019 Mexican GP precisely with the Monegasque.

Leclerc scored on his best lap 1m10s346 / 1000. With that record he unseated the Dutch from the first place in the classification Max Verstappen (Red Bull), who came second 230/1000 behind the poleman.

“It's a shame to end up on the wall, it doesn't feel the same! But at the same time I am incredibly happy for my return. I'm only worried about the gearbox, we'll see…. ”, Leclerc said that in case of having to change that component, he will be penalized with positions on the grid.

Charles LeclercThe top trio was completed by the Finn Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes), who was 255/1000 of the fastest. The Nordic will share the second row with the Spanish Carlos Sainz (Ferrari).

It was not a good Saturday for the English Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), current champion and leader of the tournament. He finished in seventh place in all the segments of the classification and will start from that position sharing the fourth row of the grid with the German Sebastian Vettel (Aston Martin).

The surprise of the afternoon was starred by the Spanish Fernando Alonso (Alpine), who was eliminated in Q1 and will start from 17th place. For his part, the German Mick Schumacher (Haas) did not qualify as the team could not recover the car that was damaged after the accident he had in training.

The race will start on Sunday at 10 in Argentina.
