Rosberg takes Monaco pole
Nico Rosberg scored his third successive pole position as Mercedes locked out the front row for the second consecutive race.
Fastest in all three practice sessions, Rosberg followed that up when it mattered most by taking top spot on the grid ahead of tomorrow's Monaco Grand Prix.
For a split second it appeared as if Hamilton would beat his team-mate, only to be ousted from pole by 0.091secs by the German, who was also on pole in Bahrain and Spain.
From such a mighty position, and unlike in the last two races when Mercedes have gone backwards, Rosberg and Hamilton should now be in a position to go on to take the chequered flag given the difficulty in overtaking around the streets of the principality.
