Lewis Hamilton has taken an easy pole for tomorrow's F3 Euroseries race in Monaco, ahead of ASN teammate Adrian Sutil

Hamilton on Pole Again in Monaco

Hamilton set a time of 1:28.593, six tenths of a second ahead of Sutil, who was in turn just one tenth of a second ahead of Signature's Loic Duval.

Hamilton was quickest all the way through the session, which was red flagged for a number of minutes early on due to Hannes Neuhauser's spin at the top of the hill.

Neuhauser stopped backwards against the guardrail on the approach to Casino Square, and given yesterday's incident with a marshal being injured at the same spot, no chances were taken and the red flag was displayed.

Hamilton has no problems setting a series of fastest laps, although Sutil had a moment when he spun at Portier, sliding slowly backwards into the barrier before continuing.

The only other incident of the session was just after the clock had run down, when Sebastian Vettel came too deep into the chicane and ran over the kerbs, launching him into the armco on the harbour front.

The first race of the weekend will take place today, at 12:40 local time.
