    Tras reanudarse la sesión, nueva bandera roja. Esta vez por un fuerte accidente de Schumacher, que vuelve a dejar al resto sin poder practicar las salidas.

    FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DE MONACO 2021 - Montecarlo
    Resultados FP3
    Sábado, 21 de mayo de 2021




    Accidentada sesión con dos banderas rojas y que ha termminado antes de tiempo con Max VERSTAPPEN en lo más alto seguido por los Ferrari.

    Carlos SAINZ vuelve a terminar segundo y a tan solo 47 miléximas de Max. A 2 décimas ha terminado LECLERC.

    La bandera roja en los últimos minutos no ha permitido ver el verdadero potencial de cara a la calificación. BOTTAS ha terminado 4º a casi medio segundo y HAMILTON 7º a más de 7 décimas.

    Los Alpine han vuelto a tener problemas. Fernando ALONSO ha terminado 15º y OCON cierra la clasifiación.

    Albert Fabrega ha comentado que el coche de Fernando tenía subviraje y que cuando lo intentaba corregir, entonces tenía sobreviraje. Parece que les está siendo complicado encontrar el equilibrio.

    En Q2 el más rápido ha sido Leclerc. Tras él han terminado Verstappen, Bottas y Sainz.

    Sorpresa al ver a Ricciardo fuera en un circuito en el que suele ir bien. Norris ha terminado 6º.

    Otra sorpresa se ver a Kimi 14º mientras que Giovinazzi pasa a Q3 en 10ª posición.

    Ocon no ha pasado por solo 7 décimas.

    Alegría de ver a Vettel pasar el corte.


    Los eliminados en Q2 son:


    11 Ocon
    12 Ricciardo
    13 Stroll
    14 Raikkonen
    15 Russell

    A M. Verstappen no le ha gustado el final de la sesión de Clasificación:

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DE MONACO 2021 - Montecarlo
    Resultados Sesión de CALIFICACIÓN
    Sábado, 21 de mayo de 2021




    Charles LECLERC se convierte en el primer monegasco en lograr la pole en su circuito de casa.

    VERSTAPPEN iba mejorando en su segundo intento pero la bandera roja provocada por el accidente de Leclerc le ha impedido terminar la vuelta y tendrá que conformarse con salir segundo mañana.

    La tercera plaza ha sido para BOTTAS, que ha tenido menos problemas con su Mercedes que HAMILTON, que ha finalizado 7º a medio segundo de su compañero. Ha comentado que el coche se le comportaba como un coche de rallies. La verdad es que no se le ha visto cómodo en ningún momento.

    Junto a él saldrá Carlos SAINZ, que, como Verstappen, estaba decepcionado por no haber podido aprovechar su segundo intento en Q3 debido a la bandera roja. Se ha quedado a sólo 10 milésimas de superar a Bottas.

    La tercera línea de salida la cubrirán NORRIS y GASLY, dos pilotos que han hecho una gran calificación, y más si vemos dónde han acabado sus compañeros: RICCIARDO 12º y TSUNODA 16º. Como dice llumia, Gasly habrá recibido la visita de Dr. Marko para pedirle que se porte mañana aguantando a Hamilton detrás lo máximo posible, una tarea que le correspondería a Checo PÉREZ pero al que le será difícil, ya que saldrá 9º. Horner ha comentado que Checo tuvo tráfico, de ahí su mala posición de salida.

    Checo saldrá entre Sebastian VETTEL y GIOVINAZZI, otros dos pilotos que han estado bastante mejor que sus compañeros. STROLL partirá 13º con RAIKKONEN justo detrás.

    Los 10 primeros saldrán con el neumático blando. El primero que podrá elegir neumático es OCON, que partirá desde la 11ª posición mientras que ALONSO lo hará desde la 17ª, en la que ha sido su peor clasificación desde que estaba en Minardi. Al igual que Hamilton, se ha quejado de lo inestable que era su coche.

    RUSSELL volvió a pasar el corte de la Q1 pero no pudo pasar de la 15ª plaza.

    Su compañero LATIFI saldrá 18º y MAZEPIN 19º.

    SCHUMACHER no pudo salir debido a los daños en el chasis que sufrió su coche en los libres 3. Se supone que la FIA le dará la autorización para correr mañana. Veremos si toma la salida desde la parrilla o desde el pit lane.

    El accidente de Leclerc en el que se ve cláramente cómo rompe la suspensión al tocar las protecciones, lo que le hizo irse al muro. Su preocupación ahora es no tener que sustituir la caja de cambios. Horner está cruzando los dedos para que así sea y recuerda que ellos tuvieron que cambiar la caja de cambios de Verstappen en un accidente similar. Habrá que recordarle que cada coche es un mundo y cada accidente diferente.

    Vuelta ideal en Q1. Bottas podría haberse llevado la pole, aunque por poco. Hamilton sólo habría mejorado una plaza.

    En un primer análisis, Ferrari no ve motivos para sustituir la caja de cambios de Leclerc. Mañana harán más pruebas antes de la carrera para asegurarse. Comentaron que no iban a poner en peligro un buen resultado del equipo por mantener la pole y que si lo creían necesario, cambiarían la caja de cambios.



    Scuderia Ferrari @ScuderiaFerrari · 6min


    UPDATE: An initial inspection of the gearbox in @Charles_Leclerc’s car has not revealed any serious damage. Further checks will be carried out tomorrow, to decide if the same gearbox can be used in the race. #MonacoGP

    Impresiones de los equipos después de la sesión de clasificación:

    Monaco GP: Qualifying team notes - Mercedes

    Valtteri is forced to settle for P3 after a red flag curtailed his final qualifying lap and brought Q3 to a premature end. Lewis starts in P7 on a difficult day with his car lacking grip throughout the session.

    Valtteri Bottas: On Thursday and even in practice this morning, I didn't have the greatest feeling in the car - we were still struggling with the tyre warm-up and mechanically, the car just isn't made for tracks like this. But I think we maximised everything set-up wise for Quali, we made some changes and I felt comfortable. As qualifying progressed, I saw that we had a chance for pole position so it's a shame I never got to finish the last run - I guess we'll never find out if it was enough but it was a good lap up until the red flag, I was a tenth or two up.


    It is great to see many teams out there competing at the front, it's exciting and we are all pushing so much on the track, trying to make every small gain we can. I am sure tomorrow will be a tight battle.


    Lewis Hamilton: The car didn't feel too bad on Thursday but we made some changes and it felt terrible today, so we'll have to go back to the drawing board. From my point of view, I just had such a lack of grip out there, which then leads you to try to overdrive and start pushing to get more from it but to no end - it just doesn't improve. So overall, a difficult day. Obviously Valtteri was able to get something out of the car but we have definitely had some problems today.


    It's almost impossible to overtake here and from where we are, that's pretty much the case when everyone is running at the same speed. Saturday really is the day. I guess the minimum would be, hopefully, seventh and then we have got to try and somehow see if we can move forwards.


    Toto Wolff: It was not a good day for us overall and we need to find out why we couldn't get Lewis' car in a happier place. It was a shame for Valtteri - he was two and a half tenths up on his final lap and had a great chance for pole but crashes happen here in Q3, it's when the drivers are pushing the most.


    For the whole day we struggled to generate grip with Lewis' car and it cost him confidence in practice and that carried over into qualifying; we'll work hard to understand why. With Valtteri's car, he was happier in the morning session, could build confidence and his car seemed to be in a better window. Tomorrow will be a tight race, we need to stay patient and look for any opportunities to move forward.


    Andrew Shovlin: A frustrating day for both sides of the garage. Valtteri was doing a great job and really getting everything out of the car, he'd been solid all session and had found quite a bit of time on his final run when the session was red flagged so he couldn't finish his lap. Lewis had a more difficult time and was unable to build tyre temperature as well as Valtteri. We'll have to look at that as there isn't anything obvious in their setups to explain it.


    P3 and P7 are not the positions where we wanted to be but the race pace and degradation will still be a feature of the race tomorrow and we've shown this year that we are good in that regard - hopefully we can use that to our advantage.

    Monaco GP: Qualifying team notes - Red Bull

    Max Verstappen: "Qualifying around here is a lot of fun. I did a decent first lap in Q3 but the tyres weren't quite in the window and I knew it was going to come down to the last run. My last lap felt really good as I was going into the tunnel, but because of the red flag I couldn't finish it which was frustrating as I felt so comfortable in the car and I knew pole position was on. Obviously Charles is driving very well so I knew it would be tight but everyone back at the factory and here at the track has done an amazing job to get the car to where it is now, especially after we struggled so much on Thursday. I think it's been a very good weekend so far, we recovered well from practice and we're starting on the front row tomorrow, which is the most important thing in Monaco, so it's not too bad. I can be quite happy with second after that red flag and now we just need to finish off the job tomorrow!"

    Sergio Perez: "I was making good progress throughout qualifying and then in Q3, the session I thought was going to be the smoothest, turned into the worst one. Things got really messy and it just didn't come together. We seemed to go backwards and we didn't make the progress we hoped or expected to. I was struggling a lot with the dropping temperatures so we changed our approach going into the final session and it just made it worse, and then on my final Q3 run I got traffic in the last sector so I lost the lap. We know how important qualifying is here in Monaco but we'll try and do the best possible job we can to recover tomorrow."

    Christian Horner:
    "It's obviously slightly frustrating not to be on pole and Max was on a mighty final lap, two and a half tenths up on his best and up on Leclerc, but unfortunately with the red flag we were unable to see the end of it. Our glass is half full rather than half empty though and to be on the front row in Monaco with Lewis in P7 is hugely important for the championship fight, so we will focus on the positives rather than the negatives. Sergio was just missing that last bit of confidence and was badly compromised in Q3, with three cars ahead of him at Rascasse costing him quite a bit of time. We all know he can hook it up around here and I'm sure he will have good pace in the race, but as we know it's hard to make progress through the field so he will have a busy afternoon. There is a real opportunity to make an impact on the championship tomorrow and we have to make the most of that. So now it's down to a good start and then it's all to play for."

    Monaco GP: Qualifying team notes - McLaren

    Lando Norris: "Really good qualifying - I'm very pleased to be P5. We were only two tenths off pole and just half a tenth off P2 - which isn't a lot - so it was really close. But I feel like I did a good lap and I don't think there was anything more in it. I'm really happy - although knowing that by doing something different you could've maybe gained that half a tenth and quite a few positions is tough, but I'm still pleased with how we did. It was a good day. It's been a good weekend for us, and we extracted everything we could out of the car. On my final Q3 lap especially, we took quite a few risks, but it all paid off and it was definitely one of the best laps I've done in my career. We did a good job today as a team and we just need to try to finish it off tomorrow."

    Daniel Ricciardo: "It's more confusing than frustrating at the moment, that's the emotion I'm feeling.

    There were some laps that, for sure, were a bit messy which explained maybe a couple of tenths. Since Thursday we've made some progress and this was continuing throughout qualifying with each run. I had to stop at the scales towards the end of Q2, so we didn't have the tyres as we wanted which put us on the back foot a little bit for the final run.


    "Usually, you can feel when you're a bit off the pace, but I haven't had that, and I don't feel like I've forgotten how to drive this track. I'm still getting up to speed with the driving style needed to get the maximum out of this car, and maybe that's amplified here in Monaco. But, we know what we need to work on and we'll keep pushing for the race tomorrow."


    Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "A mixed qualifying result for us today. Lando continued to show strong pace and finished P5, a few milliseconds from P2, which is encouraging to see. Daniel, after a difficult start here on Thursday, improved continuously through the sessions today. He was put on the back foot for his final run in Q2 due to having to stop at the weighbridge, missing the right tyre preparation. Ending qualifying in P12 still puts us in a position with Daniel to fight for good points.


    "Well done to the entire team for another very well-executed qualifying session. This is an iconic track, and we have an iconic livery to celebrate that, the field seems quite mixed up compared to what we usually see, and everything is set up perfectly for an exciting race tomorrow."

    Monaco GP: Qualifying team notes - Aston Martin

    Sebastian Vettel: "On a track like this, you need confidence, and I think qualifying eighth is a good sign that we are making progress with this car. Already on Thursday, I had a good feeling with the car in practice, and today was just about building on that feeling and progressing in each session. In Q1, it was very tight because we only ran one set of Softs because I wanted to make sure we had a second set for Q3. It worked, but then we were not able to use them [due to Charles Leclerc's crash], which was a shame. However, we can be happy about getting the car into Q3, which means we are starting inside the points already and, here in Monaco, that is crucial because it is so hard to overtake."

    Lance Stroll: "It was a tricky session. I did not quite have the balance in the car and I was not able to string a lap together. On my best lap, I lost some time in traffic behind [Lando] Norris, too, so that did not help either. Qualifying is very important here, so it is not an ideal result, but we will see what we can do tomorrow. If we make a good start, perhaps we can make some progress. Sebastian was able to get the car into Q3, which I think shows that we are in the mix for points when we put everything together."


    Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "Sebastian finished an incident-packed qualifying session in a strong eighth position, having looked in good form here both today and on Thursday. His career record here at Monaco is sensational, in fact: two wins and five additional podiums so far. Lance progressed smoothly through Q1 into Q2, quicker than Sebastian in the initial stages of quali in fact. In Q2 he encountered some excess oversteer, which is not what you need on the ultra-tight confines of this notoriously tricky street circuit, and on his quick lap, he was also slowed by Lando [Norris]. Consequently, he ended up 13th, which was a pretty decent result in the circumstances. Overtaking is very difficult here, but we are still hopeful of a double points finish in tomorrow's race."

    Monaco GP: Qualifying team notes - Alpine

    Alpine F1 Team will line up with Esteban Ocon eleventh and Fernando Alonso seventeenth on the grid for tomorrow's 78th Monaco Grand Prix after a closely contested qualifying around the streets of the Principality.

    In arguably one of the most demanding qualifying sessions of the season, Esteban narrowly missed out on the top ten shootout by 0.077secs with Fernando bowing out in Q1.


    Esteban and Fernando started Q1 on Soft tyres and on their initial push laps found themselves around the cut-off of the top fifteen positions, separated by just 0.008secs.


    As the track evolved with each passing lap, Esteban improved his lap time and managed to place his A521 firmly into Q2 on a 1min 11.740secs, proving good enough for tenth position.


    Fernando also improved on his last run with a 1min 12.205secs, but it was not enough to progress to Q2.


    Aiming to make his fourth Q3 appearance in a row, Esteban's initial timed lap in Q2 saw him place just outside of the top ten positions on a 1min 12.313secs before improving by three tenths on his second run using the same set of tyres.


    Refuelled and fitted with fresh Softs, Esteban embarked on his final runs of the session in twelfth. He improved on his initial run by another two tenths to move up to eleventh. Despite finding more lap time with a 1min 11.486secs, the Frenchman remained eleventh and fell just short of the top ten positions by 0.077secs.


    Esteban Ocon: "It was very close today and starting in eleventh place is not too bad. With what we had; it was probably the best we could do. I was happy with my lap and driving in qualifying around Monaco is always enjoyable. We've not been as fast as we have been at the last couple of races, but we have things to analyse, which will definitely help us in the future. We're in a good starting position tomorrow - it's not perfect - but we do have a free choice on tyres. We're a place away from scoring points and we'll be ready to attack in the race."


    Fernando Alonso: "It was a tricky session today and it's always a little bit messy in qualifying here as you're trying to find clear space. I don't think that was the cause for being eliminated in Q1 as we just couldn't find the performance the whole weekend and we were expecting more from our package. It's going to be very difficult starting near the back here in Monaco, but anything can happen in this race."

    Davide Brivio, Racing Director:
    "It has been a tough weekend so far as we tried to find more performance from the car. I think Esteban did a great job today and was very close to making it into Q3, missing out by a very small margin. It was unfortunate for Fernando not to make Q2. We have made improvements since Thursday - that's for sure - but we are in a difficult position as it's so hard to overtake here. Anything can happen in Monaco, though, so we remain positive for the race tomorrow."
    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Monaco GP: Qualifying team notes - Ferrari

    Today was definitely a very exciting Saturday at the Monaco Grand Prix, leaving Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow smiling, but apprehensive.

    In fact, the Italian team was back on pole courtesy of Charles Leclerc, after its best qualifying performance of the past two seasons. The last time it happened was back in 2019 at the Mexican Grand Prix. On his first run in Q3, the Monegasque produced an almost perfect lap on his home track to set the fastest time of the day. However, on his second run, Charles overdid it, clipping the barrier at turn 15 before ending up in the guardrail at the outside of the next corner. This brought out the red flag to end the session a few seconds early. While waiting to find out the extent of the damage to the car, this is nevertheless Charles' eighth F1 career pole and Ferrari's 229th, its eleventh at this track.


    Charles is the first Monegasque to start at the head of the pack in a home race counting towards the championship, although Louis Chiron did the same in 1936, before the world championship came into being. In fact, in what can be seen as something of a premonition, this weekend Charles is sporting a helmet design that pays tribute to his predecessor. Carlos Sainz also looked capable of taking pole, but will in fact start from the second row tomorrow, as he, along with several other drivers was trying to improve his time on his last run until his efforts were frustrated by the red flag. Today's performance is a clear indication of the performance level of the SF21 at a track like Monaco. The complete package has been very quick right from the start of free practice, which has enabled the drivers to fight for the top places.


    Charles Leclerc: Mixed feelings today. On the one hand, being on pole here is amazing. I was quite happy with my fastest lap in Q3. The first sector wasn't ideal, but in the second and third, I put it together. I knew I could do better but I pushed too hard on my final lap trying to improve. Unfortunately, I hit the wall and now all we can do is keep our fingers crossed and hope that the damage won't result in a penalty.


    Of course, it is encouraging to see our performance, but I believe that it's a bit of a one-off as the track suits the characteristics of our SF21 really well. That's why we were so competitive today. We have to keep in mind that we are still not at the level of the two teams leading the championship, but for now, it does feel great to have extracted the maximum today.


    Whatever the outcome, I will give my all tomorrow. It feels great to be at home and to see all the fans around the track. It's Monaco, it's very unpredictable, and also challenging for us drivers, especially in the race with so many laps. It's a great challenge and we will try to put every thing together to get a good result.


    Carlos Sainz: Today was very frustrating for me. I've been driving well all weekend and I was very strong in qualifying. I felt confident with the car and I had a very strong pace. Unfortunately, my last attempt was a bit compromised with traffic during the preparation lap and then I didn't have the chance to finish the flying lap due to the red flag. It was my first chance to put it on pole here in Monaco and lining up P4 is really frustrating. I'm not happy.


    Tomorrow it will be tough to overtake, but I will do my best and I will try to maximize our chances. Well done to the team for giving us a strong car to fight up there today.


    Laurent Mekies, Racing Director: A great qualifying, albeit with the sword of Damocles hanging over the result, dependent on the state of Charles' car. Whatever the final grid order, it is still satisfying to have one of our drivers on pole after what is the most difficult qualifying of the season. However, there is some disappointment that Carlos was unable to secure a better position, penalised - truth be told, as were other drivers - by the red flag caused by his team-mate.


    We came to this event aware that we could do well, but we never got carried away. Our aim was to be just behind the two teams fighting for the championship, but we managed to do much better than that. The result was down to the talent of our drivers and the preparation work from the team both at the track and back in Maranello, as well as the support of our technical and commercial partners.


    Tonight and tomorrow, we will stay focused on preparing as well as possible for the race, when the aim will be to reap the best possible result from what we have sown so far.
