Germany's Sebastian Vettel has once again won the world championship in Formula 1 racing, for the fourth time in a row. The Red Bull driver secured the title with three races still to go in the season.
The 2018 season is shaping up to be Sebastian Vettel's best chance yet to win a title in a scarlet Ferrari. That said, Mercedes are hot on his heels despite having had the lion's share of misfortune this season so far.
Mercedes have locked out the front row for the French Grand Prix, with Lewis Hamilton starting in front of teammate Valtteri Bottas. Sebastian Vettel put his Ferrari third, followed by the two Red Bulls.
The nimble Red Bulls were looking rapid all weekend around Monaco's twisting, narrow streets. Daniel Ricciardo was able to use this pace to claim pole. But his teammate, Max Verstappen, crashed before the session.
