Lewis Hamilton set the pace in the first practice session for the Monaco Grand Prix, which was briefly interrupted by a red flag. The Mercedes driver clocked the fastest time, showcasing his determination to make an impact on the tight and challenging street circuit.

The session was halted after a crash involving Nico Hulkenberg, whose Haas car hit the barriers, causing significant damage and bringing out the red flag. The interruption lasted for several minutes as the marshals cleared the debris and ensured the track was safe for the drivers to continue.

Once the session resumed, Hamilton continued to push hard, displaying impressive speed and control around the circuit. His performance indicates that Mercedes may have found some improvements in their setup, giving the team hope for a strong showing in one of the most prestigious races on the Formula 1 calendar.

Behind Hamilton, the usual contenders were also in the mix. Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc both posted competitive times, setting the stage for what promises to be an exciting battle for pole position and the race win. As the weekend progresses, teams will be focused on fine-tuning their strategies and setups to navigate the unique challenges of the Monaco Grand Prix.
