Highlight Notes
SESSION 2: It was a similar story in FP2 as Red Bull dominate from start to finish and look to be the top dogs ahead of an exciting weekend.

Ferrari and Mercedes have work to do, although they could have been 'sandbagging' ahead of a crucial qualifying session on Saturday. Vettel slot into P3 ahead of Hamilton and teammate Raikkonen while Bottas could only manage P6.

Outside the top-6, Hulkenberg leads the way in P7, with the Mclaren duo and teammate Sainz round off the top-10.

Can the rest catch Red Bull? Do join us for FP3 at 10 AM GMT on Saturday.


FP2 comes to a close!

Hamilton: "It just feels unsafe on this tyre, man. I'm having oversteers, it's like a wheel's falling off or something. It's not that, man, it's not the flap. Something doesn't feel right with the car. Don't want to continue with this balance."

The Red Bull drivers are enjoying themselves out there and seem to be the top dogs ahead an exciting weekend. 5 minutes to go in FP2.

There's not much to choose between Hamilton and Vettel right now. The Brit is just a hundredth of a second away from the championship challenger in P4.

Vettel has a lock-up at the Rascasse but survives without any significant damage. After a scintillating set of laps, Ricciardo finally manages to usurp teammate Verstappen from the top of the timesheets.

Alonso has now split the two Renaults and put himself up to P8. The Red Bulls are storming around the Monaco circuit. Will we see a bull run from the Bulls all weekend?

Max Verstappen seems to be in a class of his own this afternoon! But can he maintain this level of consistency throughout the weekend?

30 minutes to go in FP2. Top six: VER, VET, RIC, HAM, RAI, BOT, followed by the two Renaults, who lead from ALO and HAR.

Bottas tries to find some clear air. The Finn is currently positioned in P9 and we should be able to finally see what he can do. Hamilton has got a bit of space too and will to crank up up the pace.

Ricciardo is leaving no stone unturned to usurp his teammate and just slots in behind in P2. Bottas has a huge moment and seems to be struggling a touch but manages to ward off the barriers.

Halfway through the session, Verstappen has set the standard and is leading the timesheets from Ferrari and his teammate Ricciardo. Verstappen is on a good lap and just misses out on improving on his previous best.

We're back racing at Monaco after the delay. Verstappen and the Mercedes boys haven't come out as yet. Meanwhile, Ricciardo slots in behind Verstappen and Vettel in P3.

We have a red flag just as Verstappen was on another flier of a lap. Track repair required between turns four and five.

Verstappen improves and goes almost a second clear at the top. He's blowing the competition out of the water at the moment. RED FLAG!

Bottas and Hamilton are half a second apart in P3 and P6 respectively, as Raikkonen has only managed to set the eight fastest time so far.

Verstappen is out on the hypersofts and wastes no time in setting the fastest time in this session. Can Red Bull repeat their strong showing in FP2?

Vettel sets the fastest time in FP2. There's no sign of the Red Bulls leaving the pitlane. Meanwhile, Hulkenberg has a huge lock up.

Magnussen is the first one out of the blocks and he is running on the supersofts. And he is instantly followed by teammate Grosjean. Monaco native Leclerc is the first one to set a time in FP2.

FP2 is a GO! It is a great time for the teams to test their race pace under similar conditions.


Welcome back! FP2 is about to get underway. Earlier in the day in FP1, we saw Red Bull dominate the practice session with Ricciardo setting the pace in the session and teammate Verstappen coming in at P2.

Reigning world champion Hamilton was within touching distance in P3 followed by the two Ferraris, Vettel in P4 and Raikkonen in P5.

Can anyone challenge Red Bull's early supremacy?!
