Michael Leads All Schumacher Front Row - Canadian GP

Saturday June 9th, 2001

Michael Schumacher, todayMichael Schumacher on Saturday claimed pole position for Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix in his Ferrari in a qualifying session that was stopped twice after similar crashes.

Before Schumacher took his sixth pole of the season, his teammate Rubens Barrichello and Sauber's Nick Heidfeld both caused the session to be red-flagged as they smashed their cars into the wall in separate incidents at the chicane at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

But nothing could halt the impressive Schumacher's charge and he finished the day more than half a second faster than his nearest rival, brother Ralf, to make it the second ever family front row.

David Coulthard salvaged some satisfaction after a disappointing drop in form from McLaren saw the pace of previous practice sessions overhauled by other teams to leave the Scot third, and his struggling and disheartened teammate Mika Hakkinen eighth.

Jarno Trulli was a delighted fourth, just one hundredth of a second faster than Ferrari's Rubens Barrichello, while Olivier Panis was the best of the British American Racing drivers in sixth.

But Panis' teammate Jacques Villeneuve, who has been the centre of attention after a reported clash with Williams' Juan Pablo Montoya will start alongside his rival on the fifth row.

Kimi Raikkonen gave Sauber some relief after Heidfeld's crash by posting the seventh fastest time, while the Jaguars failed to show their early promise and Pedro de la Rosa qualified in 14th, one place ahead of his teammate Eddie Irvine.
