Schumacher rolls back the years
Mark Webber will be on pole for Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix, despite Michael Schumacher posting the fastest time in qualifying.
The German ace belied his poor start to the season with a time of one minute 14.301 seconds but has to settle for a starting place of sixth on the grid, following a five-place penalty handed to him after his collision with Bruno Senna at the Spanish Grand Prix. Mercedes team boss Ross Brawn said: "I have to admit I had a bit of a tear in my eye. He's faced some tough times since his comeback but he has been in good shape all weekend." Red Bull's Webber was edged out on the clock by a mere 0.08 seconds but will now get the benefit of pole following the seven-time world champion's demotion, with Schumacher's Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg also on the front row. Lewis Hamilton will start in third ahead of Lotus's Romain Grosjean, with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso in fifth. Jenson Button qualified as 13th fastest but will start from 12th on the grid after Pastor Maldonado was punished with a 10-grid penalty for driving his car at Sergi Perez's Sauber.
