QUALIFYING Sauber. A lack of downforce meant neither Felipe Nasor nor Marcus Ericsson were able to work the supersoft tyres hard enough to get the best out of them. McLaren did have pace. For the first time this season it looked as though the promise it had shown early in the weekend would translate into performance when it mattered. Both Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button escaped the opening session, though Alonso's qualifying wouldn't go much further. He ground to a halt early in the second phase when his car switched off heading into Ste Devote. Button's sister car had pace and looked a realistic chance at making the top ten before a late yellow flag at Ste Devote ended that hope. Having just started what would be his final flying lap, Button was forced to slow in the first sector. It cost him the time he needed to end the session inside the top ten. Instead he was twelfth. It was effectively 11th since Romain Grosjean had a gearbox change penalty which would drop him to 16th. When Carlos Sainz missed the weighbridge and was excluded from the session it became tenth, McLaren's best grid spot of the season. 25 GPWEEK.com // 25 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> MONACO PARTNERS:
