Awesome lap. It just shows he still has plenty of speed left in him. Everyone around him is elite or top class so we shouldn't see any incidents with any ex GP2 kamikaze drivers..


I'm smiling like the first time i got laid :lol:

Well I'm a bit fearfull of Grosjean. At the widest track he bumped into Schumacher, what will happen at the narrowest track?ll

Canada, here we come! :wave: MS proved himself once again in drivers circuit. It was good he was there to put that Merc on pole.

Fantastic performance from Schumi. :clap: Definitely shouted "YES!" as he crossed the line into 1st. Just a pity that he's starting from 6th. Hope for a podium tomorrow, but as for Canada, who knows.... ;)

Seeing Schumi driving one handed through the swimming pool chicane reminded me just why I became a fan of his in 1991. Awesome stuff indeed!

Worried about Grosjean though, he seems to like taking a bite out of Schumis Merc.

What a lap. That was some brilliant stuff. He still has it.

YES!!! YES!!! YES!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

And by the way this Michael's performance changes the history books a bit: only three drivers, namely Emilio Guiseppe Farina (47 years, 79 days at 1954 Argentine Grand Prix), Juan Manuel Fangio (46 years, 209 days at 1958 Argentine Grand Prix) and Sir Jack Arthur Brabham (44 years, 17 days at 1970 Spanish Grand Prix), were older when they took the pole.

Moreover today Michael has become the oldest polesitter in "modern" Formula One World Championship, which started in 1981 (as originally it was World Driver's Championship in 1950-1980). Previous record was hold by Mario Gabriele Andretti, who took pole at 1982 Italian Grand Prix being 42 years, 196 days old.

Michael's made up as much of the penalty as he could, that's for sure. I am surprised you were not following my three posts right after pole position.....?!

Schumacher got the 2nd qualifying win for MGP this year.
Not unexpected at all. It was just matter of time.
He can find a race win somewhere like Monza, Montreal or Suzuka.
BBC guys never ever forgive him he spoiled their weekend.

'some' monaco magic? This is the track where driver skills counts the most. And he beat all of them supposed way better than him drivers. Vettel, Hamilton, Raikonen, Alonso and his teammate, qualify specialist Rosberg, to make the qual stats 3 - 3 overal. That is not 'some' magic. Thats all skill and talent.

But, lets spare a thought for guys like Byron. The grapes are very sour today indeed, as Michael notches pole number 69 on his list. :)

Schumacher actually predicted pole position, starting the race sixth and then winning.......

It wasn't shown on BBC but it was aired on Sky in the post-qualifying press conference.

Well, Well done Mike!, who knows, maybe in 3 more years he can actually win a race, who knows, stranger things have happened! :drunk:


Wow... nice one this.

You nicely confirm how pathetic envy can so colour one's opinion DESPITE genuine racing experience. Sorry that you are unable to really appreciate what took place today. Maybe you should meet with Warwick and have a drink? :smoking:

A wonderful pole from Schumi and the best circuit to have done it on!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Well done by Webber as well. It's so refreshing really after all that has happened. It's about time the critics rightfully got some of their words to chew on.

You're right!! This didn't happen to be one of 'those' no-run S3 tire session. Also, this happens to be Monaco!

Bloody nice to see Jock & Nico chuffed for him :)

Think it'll be difficult to find his pole lap today purely due to the sh*tty directing going on. I didn't even know if he was out on the track.

The pole lap is always available on formula1.com, but I don't really know from when exactly. I believe next week though.

I suspect Sky Sports/BBC F1 will show it tomorrow, as they always do before the start.

It is special that Michael got the pole in Monaco, a track which is still considered to be the place where a driver can out drive the car and make a difference. Top marks to Webber, Rosberg and Lewis too as they put in very good performances and all of them have over the years showed pace at this track. Like Ivand said all the contenders got a shot at pole and there were no glaring tyre saving strategies as such. So I will say it again well done Michael!

On another note can anyone enlighten me who Michael referred to in the press conference when he was saying thanks to the team? Some special group of people which are close to him and with whom he sat down at the start of the week to work together for a shot at pole? I think Jock (I don't believe in the silly conspiracies blaming him for the DNFs) is a part of that unit as ever since he has joined Micheal's side of the garage his performances have been on the up.

Don´t forget that these other 8 drivers were driving the best car of the grid, the Marcedez,. No wait...


Anyway, good job by Michael, i think beeing 0.1 s faster than Rosberg is a the ultimate proof that he is the Monaco Master. Can´t think about any other driver who could do the same.
