motor racing lovers, I just found the pole lap onboard :clap:


Thanks for posting. That's the best I've seen the car look yet. Bodes well for the Grand Prix.

Awesome time from Michael.. Very happy to se Webber destroy vettel as well, as last year he was written off, which was clearly to the EBD where vettel had the edge. Now without it, where the car requires more driver input to stabilize the rear end, the more aggressive drivers such as michael, mark, lewis etc are getting the edge out of it in qualli.

Just wanted to poke in and say how much I enjoyed Michael turning back the clock this morning, even if he won't lead the field away tomorrow. Haven't jumped up in amazement watching F1 since the 2008 Brazilian GP, makes me remember how much more fun the sport is when your favorite drivers do well. Here's to hoping he rides a good race result into Canada, where I think he'll have his best shot at a win all year (plus I'll be there cheering for him).

He turned back the clock?! That cheating bastage!! I knew it!!!! :up:

Seriously, it is strange that it doesn't get it's rightful place in the statistics, as they should show who actually was fastest.


Nope. A Pole Position is the first spot on the grid. Mark Webber will start there. Michael Schumacher was the fastest, but is not the polesitter. The statistic is about the amount of pole positions, which, Schumacher still has 68 of.
I think it's pretty clear really. It can be debated as much as people would like, but it doesn't change the fact that it will be Webber, not Schumacher starting from pole position.

It may not be written in the history books, but for all of us who have witness ones again michael's majestic drive, it will be remembered forever and pass on to our childrens and grans childrens. No one can still be competetive as michael for such a long time in the sports :up:

Not a track better to have shown this dominance, than at drivers track Monaco.

He can qualify P24 the rest of the year and still say: but I was the quickest in Monaco. I SHOWED THEM HOW ITS DONE!!!!!


WOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :up: :up: :up: :up:

This is going to end remarkably well (podium/win) or horribly (another ****ing collision).

Considering how close the field is this year. I am going to say that was one of his best ever qualifying laps. It was also unexpected which made it even better. The pole might not go down in the record books, but it was one of his best.

a full clean race today with a points finish please.

Never been a Schumacher fan, but fair play to him yesterday. Pulled it out of the bag right at the end. Bit of bad luck not being able to profit from the effort but that's life.

It could be a good race, but it can end horribly too. I'm just to much afraid of another collision...

P2 at best. Webber and Hamilton both have better chances of winning than him. Rosberg has equal chances.

Various people would of picked up on the fact that i'm faaar from a Shuey fan (Ivan  ;) ) But was actually glad to see him put in such a great lap yesterday, top job! And then watching the lap back, one handed changing the brake bias through the fast swimming pool chicane was just :drunk: x10! Fair play, thats takes a lot of skill and balls.

I don't feel too well after typing that. :p

At least he's between two experienced drivers in Alonso and Massa. I'm a little nervous about Grosjean being so close however.

Unless he gets a very lucky safety car, absolutely no chance.

He has to find a way past Alonso, Grosjena and then Hamilton just to get near a podium.

Overtaking Alonso and Hamilton at Monaco - it's just not gonna happen unfortunately.

Yes, any hope for the afternoon is gone.

BBC guys said Michael took Grosjean out, but realkly did he need to move so far left after tapping the Ferrari.

Anyway, long afternoon in 8th for Schumi now.

Er... not especially. Why?

Michaels pace is well above Raikonnens this weekend, but he's been dumped down to 8th and at Monaco there is no way to get past and run at the correct pace.

Thats Monaco, what can you do?

And Grosjean. Now he is just cruising to the final.

autosportlive: Schumacher is still losing ground in seventh. He is now 23 seconds back from Massa, with Vergne 2.2s behind the Mercedes in eighth.

He is not losing ground , it is 23 sec for some laps now. What he can do , catch Massa? And after that what?

I think we have to settle for 7th. :|
I thought his race had ended at the start when his right front got hit.
Can't say that I'm surprised with what's happening for him. We'll have to wait longer for his win.

I hope Lotus never win this year for this. I also hope Bruno Senna is ditched by Williams soon.

This would have been a easy win without that frikkin penalty

Don't think he'll finish the race.

Shame, his pace was awesome.
