MONACO – Nico Rosberg put an end to Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton’s four-race pole streak by claiming the pole for the Monaco Grand Prix at Circuit de Monaco in controversial fashion Saturday.

Rosberg had already set the fastest lap of the session before he made an error at Mirabeau on his final run, sliding up the escape road and bringing out the yellow flag. Everyone behind Rosberg – including Hamilton who had just set a personal best first sector – were thus unable to improve.

After the session the stewards announced that the incident involving Rosberg was to be investigated, but the stewards opted not to take any action against Rosberg.

Behind the dueling Silver Arrows, the Red Bulls of Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel took both slots on the second row, whilst the Ferraris of Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen locked out the third.

Jean-Eric Vergne, Kevin Magnussen, Daniil Kvyat and Sergio Perez completed the top 10 in Formula One qualifying.
