Qualification before the Monaco Grand Prix in 2012 won Michael Schumacher – and the offensive for the seven-time world champion in five position penalty that imposed on the Germans for the collision with Bruno Senna at the last race in Spain. Of course, five positions and start from sixth place – not as bad as a penalty at ten positions, which “reward” Pastor Maldonado for misconduct on the track with respect to Sergio Perez in the Saturday morning practice. Schumacher to fight for the victory tomorrow will not be easy, though some chances still there. Well, the first place to start is the second qualifier Mark Webber. His partner of Red Bull – Sebastian Vettel this time looks like in Monaco is not very convincing. Two-time world champion barely managed to get into the final segment of qualifying, but it did not leave the boxes, the other ten. The third result was for Nico Rosberg – Mercedes, both pilots were on the city roads are very fast. The best of the McLaren driver has become Lewis Hamilton (4th place), but Jenson Button and not able to go to the final segment. The British team was calculated entirely on the different results. Fifth place went to Romain Grosjean and Kimi Raikkonen throughout the weekend to experience problems with steering his Lotus, however, he showed the eighth result. Between the last two riders placed Ferrari – Fernando Alonso (6th place) and Felipe Massa (7th). Brazilian in Monaco goes quite well, its backlog of mate significantly reduced, it remains only to consolidate the trend in the race. Finally, Pastor Maldonado showed only the ninth result, and taking into account shtafa Venezuelan will start far outside the top ten.
