Webber praises qualifying was ‘Schumacher’s day’

Monaco Grand Prix second top fastest man Mark Webber praises the Pole man Michael Schumacher; he says that it is Michael’s day, a good lap from him.

The Australian Mark Webber will start from front on the grid Sunday despite finishing in second place in qualifying in Monte Carlo.

“It is Michael’s day,” said Webber. “A good lap from him. It was a tight session and lots of different people arrived at the back end of qualifying with different situations with tyres.

“I knew I was aiming for the first few rows for sure – and it came tight. The first run in Q3 was not too bad, and I thought I could go for pole. It was a pretty good lap and I’m happy with it. It’s a very good position to be starting tomorrow. We have a very good car. The guys have done a good job and I am very, very happy.”

“After qualifying I thought I had a penalty as my engineer said ‘great lap and blah, blah, blah, penalty’ – and I didn’t know what I had done,” said Webber.

“When you have an incident in the grand prix that is always a tricky thing. When incidents happen apart from fines what else can you do? How do you enforce regulations on driver behaviour or team behaviour after that?”

The Red Bull speedy says tomorrow race unpredictable given it will be the first time the super softs tyres are raced this season.

“Everyone is in the same boat. We don’t have a huge amount of experience with super soft in long runs. Everyone is in ball park I would imagine.” He added about the one-stop strategy in the race “In 24 hours we will see.”
