In this 2022 usually Max Verstappen succeeded in Qualifying a limit the damage this season bringing his Red Bull to the front row alongside the unstoppable Charles Leclerc, who joined him today at 14 career pole positions. In Monaco, however, in this edition the reigning world champion is struggling particularly and not only did Ferrari hit the front row as a whole as in Miami, but even Sergio Perez was more performing than the Dutchman.
Verstappen in the last useful lap had finally registered a first sector that is more than interesting – although not at the level of a stellar Leclerc – but then the contact against the guard rail of Sergio Perez la Portier caused a red flag that thwarted Verstappen’s charge as well as Sainz’s.
“It always happens like this – venting via radio – it was a nice ride. Something should be changed, otherwise it ends up taking a good ride and then putting it on the wall “. After getting out of the car, the World Championship leader turned his thoughts to tomorrow in the hope that the weather would help him: “Rain is the only hope for me to be able to do something tomorrow in the race“. Verstappen at the end of Qualifying went to congratulate Leclerc, an unreachable poleman.
Defending the head of the World Cup tomorrow will be very difficult for Verstappen, who appeared in difficulty with the understeer and with the front of his Red Bull throughout the weekend.
