Lewis Hamilton took pole position for the Monaco Grand Prix for the first time in his career in convincing style.
The world champion beat Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg by 0.342 seconds. Hamilton was thrilled to finally achieve pole, having been beaten here by Rosberg for the last two years. The Englishman was defeated by Rosberg in the last race in Spain and heads into Sunday's race 20 points clear of the German in the drivers' championship.
