Did Rosberg deliberately go off in Q3 in Monaco?


Vote in our latest F1 poll and have your say on if Nico Rosberg's mistake in qualifying for the 2014 F1 Monaco GP was a genuine error or a deliberate ploy to ensure he remained on pole position for Sunday's race...


Nico Rosberg took pole position in qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix, but the manner in which he did it was rather controversial.

Rosberg had trailed Lewis Hamilton in all three practice sessions, and while the German was fastest in Q1, he was again edged out in Q2 and was 0.111 seconds adrift.

However, in the top-ten shootout Rosberg led the way on the first runs, posting a 1m 15.989s lap, which put him 0.059 seconds up the sister car. On his second run though Rosberg ran down the escape road at Mirabeau. That incident brought out the yellow flags and meant Hamilton was unable to improve, handing the German the pole.

The F1 paddock is divided on whether it was a genuine error or a deliberate ploy to ensure he stayed top, but we want to know what you think.
