Charles Leclerc topped the Friday practice times for Ferrari ahead of the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix. Here’s how and when to watch qualifying.

The Ferrari driver impressed on the opening day of his home race by dominating second practice, beating FP1 headliner Lewis Hamilton by 0.188s.
With Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso taking third on the FP2 timesheet, it appeared to be a tricky day for Red Bull, with both Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez struggling with an ill-handling RB20. Verstappen ended the day fourth fastest with team-mate Perez down in eighth. 
Lando Norris led the McLaren charge in fifth ahead of Carlos Sainz and Lance Stroll, with Perez, Alex Albon and George Russell rounding out the top 10.
