Things looked set to be simple for Ferrari after securing pole in Barcelona, with Leclerc assailing to a 13-second lead before losing power on lap 27.

The 24-year-old now finds himself six points behind defending champion Verstappen ahead of the famous Monaco Grand Prix.

Yet despite the track being his home race, Leclerc is still yet to register a finish in the Principality in three attempts during his time in F1.
