Stat Attack - Monaco: In no other race on the calendar is qualifying quite as important as on the meandering street circuit of Monte Carlo. Qualification for the 75th running of the Grand Prix de Monaco was correspondingly hard-fought and ultimately settled by the tightest of margins, as Valtteri missed out on pole by just 0.045 seconds. "It could have been a completely different Sunday with those extra five hundredths," said Valtteri, who finished fourth in the race, just short of a maiden Monaco podium. In fact, the Finn was only two thousandths off P2 in qualifying - equivalent to nine centimetres on the 3.337 km street circuit in the Principality. The battle for fractions of a second continued on Sunday afternoon, as the Silver Arrows pit crews performed two of the three fastest stops of the race (2.61 and 2.65 seconds).
