Schumacher says it has a very prestigious position

Monaco Grand Prix Qualifying quickest man Michael Schumacher says that it has a very impressive position and he was thrilled making the pole position in Monaco.

Seven-time world champion says big thanks to the team and he still targets victory for the Monaco Grand Prix.

“First of all, I’m more than thrilled about making the pole position here in Monaco,” he said.

“Monaco, to all of us, is the track of the year – it has a very prestigious position. To manage pole position here after what happened in the last two and half years is just fabulous and that’s what will stick in my mind.

“I told you guys already in the press conference [on Wednesday] that my situation was that I would try to be on pole and start the race from sixth and go and win it. That’s what I’m here for and that’s what I’ll aim for. That’s all I have in my mind and the past doesn’t matter.”

“I’ll leave it to others to say what it means or doesn’t mean,” he added.

“For me, I’m obviously excited, very happy and I’m feeling what I haven’t felt for a long time. Sometimes you put everything together at the right moment and here it worked out. So it’s a big thanks to the team, to the guys that work very close with me, we had a special session earlier this week, and this sort of unifies us even more.”
