The provisional Monaco GP grid

Date published: May 27 2018 - Editor

Daniel Ricciardo will start Sunday’s Monaco Grand Prix from the very front of the grid while his team-mate Max Verstappen is at the rear.

Ricciardo claimed pole position on Saturday with an impressive 1:10.810, a new lap record for the Monte Carlo street circuit.

Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel will start alongside him in second place.

Meanwhile at the very back of the grid is Max Verstappen.

He did not qualify after crashing in final practice with the damage to his car necessitating a gearbox change.

That comes with a five-place penalty, however, he’s already at the back of the grid so that means nothing.

The only other penalty is for Romain Grosjean, who has a three-place grid drop for causing a collision at the previous race in Spain.
