Daniel Ricciardo grabs pole in F1 Monaco qualifying

Daniel Ricciardo

He's been quickest in every session, every qualifying piece there and he's delivered two great laps that were capable of pole so he's done an awesome job. Ferrari and Mercedes could use the fact they both have two cars starting directly behind Ricciardo to try something different strategically. "We've got a great vehicle, he's a phenomenally fast driver and would have been able to be competing for the pole position today and for the whole team to only be running one-legged with such a strong auto is frustrating but I have to compliment all the guys in the garage, we had both crews working hard to get him back out into that session but unfortunately this time it was not meant to be". It later transpired that he had damaged his gearbox, and Red Bull were unable to replace it in time for him to compete in qualifying.

The Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix will take place this Sunday 27 May.

Team boss Christian Horner was quite pointed in his criticism of Verstappen - who has had a series of mishaps this season - on British television after the session. "He got bitten pretty hard today in a session that doesn't really count for anything except setting up the vehicle". He in a vehicle that is capable of winning this grand prix and that will hurt him even more.

Between the lush streets of Monaco and the itty bitty inches between auto and barrier, you'll really gain some newfound appreciation for what these drivers do and are capable of. Lewis Hamilton put the lead Mercedes on third on the grid.

"Congratulations to Daniel. They've had the pace all weekend, we knew they would", Hamilton said. I improved a little bit but wasn't able to hold onto it.

In Australia he spun while chasing Kevin Magnussen's Haas at the start of the race, in Bahrain he spun in qualifying and made contact with Lewis Hamilton in the race, in China he crashed into Sebastian Vettel and in Baku he crashed in practice as well as colliding with teammate Daniel Ricciardo in the race. "We've got a great auto, he's a phenomenally fast driver and would have been able to be competing for pole today, and for the whole team to only be running one-legged with such a strong vehicle is frustrating".

Kimi Raikkonen was fourth fastest for Ferrari, while his fellow Finn Valtteri Bottas claimed fifth on the grid. Just before the incident he had to negotiate his way around the slow-moving Renault of Carlos Sainz, but said that was no excuse for the mistake.
