The F1 circus has already arrived at Monte Carlo for the 2024 F1 Monaco GP. After Friday's practice sessions, teams and drivers are now gearing up for the qualifying session on Saturday (25 May).

The Monaco GP is one of the most prestigious races in the entire sport. The principality has been hosting motorsports races since 1929, long before F1's World Championship began. The tight street track demands the utmost skill and reflex from drivers and punishes them for even the slightest of mistakes.

Previously at Imola GP, Max Verstappen initially struggled in the practice sessions, but was able to bag pole position. In the Grand Prix, he was able to keep the lead for most laps but was chased by McLaren's Lando Norris in the latter stages of the race.

By the end, Norris was quite close to overtaking Verstappen, but the Red Bull star ultimately bagged the win. The McLaren driver finished second, while Charles Leclerc came in at third place.

In Monaco, the teams completed the first two practice sessions on Friday (24 May) and are now focused on qualifying. Qualifying at Monaco is as important as the race since overtaking is extremely difficult on the narrow track.
