The most successful driver in Formula 1 history, Michael Schumacher, today scored his 69th pole position of his career. He did this 18 years after his first pole position, which also happened here in Monaco, at one of his favorite tracks.
At 43, the German has proven that his return to Formula 1 after three years in retirement and at the age of 42 two and a half years ago, is not a complete failure.
Moreover, in a season that has already had five winners in five races, this Monaco Grand Prix set to run tomorrow, is looking like it could deliver another one. Schumacher, unfortunately, has a grid penalty from running into Bruno Senna at the Spanish Grand Prix two weeks ago. So he will start from only sixth position.
That means Mark Webber, who has won this race before, will start from pole in his Red Bull. Nico Rosberg will start from second, and Lewis Hamilton, will start from third in his McLaren Mercedes.
