F1 2024 Monaco GP Starting Grid – Final Grid Positions

Hometown hero Charles Leclerc of Ferrari is first on the starting grid for the 2024 Monaco Grand Prix


The 2024 Monaco GP starting grid is set, with Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc securing pole position in a thrilling qualifying session on home turf. Leclerc delivered a spectacular performance, navigating the challenging Monte Carlo circuit with precision to post a stunning lap time of 1m 10.270s in Q3. 

McLaren’s Oscar Piastri came closest to Leclerc’s time, securing the second spot on the grid. Leclerc’s Ferrari teammate, Carlos Sainz, rounded out the top three, ensuring a strong starting position for the Scuderia.

Reigning world champion Max Verstappen faced challenges during qualifying, hitting the wall at Sainte Devote on his final lap, which resulted in him starting from sixth position. This incident ended Verstappen’s streak of eight consecutive pole positions, a record that had recently matched the legendary Ayrton Senna.

Mercedes drivers George Russell and Lewis Hamilton will start the race from fifth and seventh positions, respectively, flanking Verstappen on the grid. RB’s Yuki Tsunoda, Alex Albon in the Williams, and Pierre Gasly of Alpine round out the Top 10 on the grid. 

Nico Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen from Haas were disqualified from Qualifying due to irregularities with their DRS systems. This setback pushed Hulkenberg and Magnussen to the back of the grid, after initially qualifying 12th and 15th. That moves the likes Fernando Alonso and Sergio Perez to 14th and 16th on the grid, respectively.
