Formula 1 qualifying results: Starting grid for 2021 Monaco Grand Prix
The stage for the 2021 Monaco Grand Prix is set.
Originally scheduled to start Sunday from the first grid box, the Ferrari driver had issues with his gearbox entering the GP, forcing him into an incredibly unfortunate DNS.
Verstappen had an opportunity to upend Leclerc at the end of the session before Leclerc’s untimely crash to red flag the session.
In all, seven different teams are represented in the top 10 heading into Sunday’s return to Monte Carlo, the first time the race is being run since that 2019 season.
Monaco, as always, is one of the trickiest, most exciting tracks to navigate during the F1 season. Free practice sessions before qualifying proved just that, with several wrecks happening over the course of the three practice sessions. Mick Schumacher wiped out in Practice 3, the only driver who didn’t post a quali lap entering Sunday.
Here’s how they’ll line up on Sunday for F1’s marquee event:
