Michael Schumacher remained firmly on course to make the best-ever start to a season when he clocked the fastest time after two morning practice sessions in Monaco.
 

The German, seeking a sixth successive grand prix win and his sixth in Monaco, took top spot in both 45-minute affairs although faced pressure from Renault's Jarno Trulli. The Italian was only 0.002secs adrift of the world champion in the second session to raise hopes of a qualifying scrap on Saturday afternoon. Takuma Sato was also on the pace in his BAR-Honda to be marginally back in third, with team-mate Jenson Button down in sixth. Juan Pablo Montoya pushed his Williams a little too hard to keep in touch, clipping a tyre barrier and losing a wing before limping into the pits but still clocked the fifth-fastest time. Mark Webber's disastrous weekend continued with his second engine fire. The Australian was forced to put out a blaze on Thursday and matter's did not improve with a similar problem ending his participation in the second session.

Jarno Trulli claimed the first pole position of his Formula One career as Michael Schumacher could only qualify fourth for the Monaco Grand Prix. Trulli put in a scorching lap of one minute 13.985 seconds in the Renault to edge out BAR's Jenson Button. Fernando Alonso will start third in the other Renault with Kimi Raikkonen's McLaren splitting the Ferraris of Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello. BAR's Takuma Sato qualified seventh and McLaren's David Coulthard eighth.

Michael Schumacher endured the unfamiliar experience of propping up the timing sheets for much of pre-qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix today.An untidy lap saw Schumacher who hit the track first courtesy of his win last time out in Spain post a disappointing time in his Ferrari.He had to watch in the pits as the 10 drivers on the track immediately after him beat his time, until Mark Webber's Jaguar finally replaced him at the bottom.
