Michael's last pole was in French GP at Magny-Cours back in 2006, July. Monaco GP was before that.
Very interesting FACTS.
Schumacher's FIRST ever pole. 1994, Monaco.
Schumacher's LAST pole. 2006, Monaco (Penalty, sent to back of grid).
Schumacher's comeback pole. 2012, Monaco (Penalty, 5-places).
Maybe it is a sign of things to come.
Schumi said he was going to try one-stop race, which is the most sensible thing to do, I reckon given that Vettel almost managed it to work last year. However, Webber and co might try two stops in order to be in the safe side. It will be interesting how tyres will behave as almost noone had done a long-run comparison on Thursday. It's open.
