One of the most iconic events of the sporting calendar takes place today as Formula One races around the streets of Monaco. Max Verstappen is on pole position as he looks to continue his march towards a third F1 world title in a row, aided by his Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez crashing out in qualifying.
Fernando Alonso will be right on the Dutchman’s tail off the line however after putting his Aston Martin second on the grid, ahead of Esteban Ocon after some surpising pace from the Alpine over the weekend so far. Charles Leclerc starts sixth after a three-place grid penalty.
There is a slight chance of rain this afternoon to shake up what already promises to be a fascinating race, although overtaking has always been a tricky one around these narrow streets.

Where might we get our overtaking today?
12:49 , Marc Mayo
Monaco is a track that requires some inventive thinking to get in an overtake – particularly with these wide cars.
Sainte Devote off the start-finish line is one natural place, as is the Grand Hotel Hairpin if you’re feeling really brave. Otherwise, the Nouvelle chicane is perhaps the best bet.
Who has what tyres left?

It looks like one Hard and one Medium set of tyres is the order of the day for a race which doesn’t tend to bring much in the way of degradation.
Lewis Hamilton talks up Mercedes upgrade
12:39 , Marc Mayo
Starting fifth in the Monaco Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton has spoken highly of the new-look Mercedes following a series of upgrades.
“Well firstly, it’s been an amazing weekend, I’ve loved every second on the track, more than probably ever,” Hamilton said.
“I think the last time I loved it this much was like 2007, 2008, and my Formula 3 days here, so I’ve genuinely really enjoyed it.
“I think we made some really good changes because every time you make a change, it’s like a roll of the dice, 50/50 chance it’s going to work.”
