ROMAIN Grosjean is targeting a place in the final round of qualifying tomorrow at the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix.

The Frenchman, who drives for the Banbury-based Haas team, was tenth and 11th fastest in practice yesterday.

Despite telemetry and radio issues in the first session, Grosjean, whose teammate Kevin Magnussen was eighth and seventh, is feeling good ahead of tomorrow's race.

He said: "The car feels good in low-fuel, so we’ll see what we can do for tire management.

“It’s a tough track to overtake on, so it’s not the main priority, but of course we want to be fast in race runs.

“So far everything’s going okay, and hopefully Q3’s a possibility."

Nico Hulkenberg was seventh and 16th, with Daniel Ricciardo 11th and 17th for Renault.

The Enstone-based team still have a lot of pace to find ahead of qualifying.

Ricciardo said: “Following the afternoon session, we have a bit more homework to do to really find that extra bit.

“As ever around Monaco, it’s awesome to be back driving a Formula 1 car on these streets. That’s always special.”

George Russell finished 17th and 19th in his Grove-prepared Williams, while teammate Robert Kubica was 18th and 20th.

The latter has not raced at the street circuit since 2010 and is expecting a tough weekend.

He said: “The positive from returning here after nine years was that I jumped into the car and the opening laps were not too bad.

“However, when the pace picks up, it will be more difficult for us. We have to balance risk with keeping it tidy and steady.”
