Asked if pole was more down to the new engine or ‘big Australian balls’ he smiled and said: “Big Australian balls!”

He went on to say: “I think I will probably sleep easier tonight. I think the whole week has been a lot of anticipation, a lot of excitement... Monaco has always been a good race for me in previous categories. Yeah, it’s a good day.”

Bless you, Australia. Bless you and your gargantuan huevos.
