Giedo van der Garde put on a good performance for Monaco qualifying, getting the Caterham team into the second session, and securing a fifteenth place grid slot for the race. Helped a little by Felipe Massa's non-start on Saturday, Giedo beat a Williams, a Sauber and a Force India to take the best grid slot for Caterham this year.

Talking about his day, Giedo said: "Honestly, it's a great feeling, but it's still part of the learning process for me. I've said since the start of the season that I'd make progress, and today showed how far we've all come in just six races, and there's more to come."

He also looked ahead to the race, where he's being realistic but slightly hopeful, saying: "Sunday could be very interesting. I start between the two Williams cars of Bottas and Maldonado and I've had good starts all year, so hopefully I can have another good launch, avoid anything like the GP2 mess on Friday, and from there anything's possible."
