Verstappen has won three races in a row to seize the lead in the championship standings and Leclerc has to respond as Formula One returns to the streets of Monte Carlo.
The Ferrari driver took pole position at his home race last season but the Monegasque driver was unable to start the race after crashing during the session.
Verstappen, despite winning four of the opening six races of the campaign, has just one pole position to his name and an improvement on that record would be bad news for Leclerc ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday.
