Charles Leclerc, afflicted here over the years by so much ill-luck and misjudgment, was the home-town hero of Monaco as he put his Ferrari on pole.

 

A year ago he also took pole but, after finding dizzying speed, pranged his scarlet machine. He made it as far as the parade lap the next day, but the damage sustained to his gearbox in the crash condemned him to miss the race.

More embarrassingly, a fortnight ago he ended up in the barriers during a demonstration drive in Niki Lauda’s 1974 Ferrari at the Monaco Historique. Brake failure was later blamed, but by then he had entered an apology that served as a mea culpa.
