Qualifying Session Report - Results

Juan Pablo Montoya grabs his third pole of the season and the second in a row ahead of Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello. Ralf Schumacher was 4th ahead of Kimi Raikkonen with Giancarlo Fisichella managing an impressive 6th place.
Nick Heidfeld was 7th ahead of David Coulthard while Jacques Villeneuve gave BAR something to smile about putting the BAR in 9th ahead of the Renault of Jarno Trulli.

As expected, the fight was between Juan Pablo Montoya and Michael Schumacher. Their team-mates didn't really fare in this fight and in the end Juan Pablo only needed two runs to grab pole after setting a stunning time of 1:12.836 (just under 3 seconds faster than the Pole time of last year!).

With rain forecast towards the end of the session, the cars came out relatively early. The 2 Williams were in fact the first cars out on the track. Ralf Schumacher was the first to set a time but Montoya immediately went faster. Michael Schumacher was the last to go out for his first run and went fastest on his first run. Moments later Juan Pablo went out and bettered Michael's time by nearly half a second. Montoya aborted his 2 subsequent runs!
Michael improved his time on his following two runs but was unable to beat Montoya's time. On his last run as light rain began to fall, Michael Schumacher aborted his run.

With Rubens Barrichello and Ralf Schumacher in 3rd and 4th, the fight was for the 3rd row and Kimi Raikkonen managed to grab 5th place (his 6th for the season) but it was Giancarlo Fisichella in the Jordan who impressed the most setting the 6th fastest time. 

A number of drivers had problems during the session. Takuma Sato suffered an engine blowout, Jarno Trulli hit the wall and both Jacques Villeneuve and Alex Yoong stopped on the track with mechanical problems.

The top 2 are separated by just 0.182 seconds while Rubens Barrichello and Ralf Schumacher are less than a second behind. 
Behind those 4 it is very close. Kimi Raikkonen who is over a second off the Pole time is just over 1.5 seconds faster than Mark Webber in 21st.  

A number of drivers had disappointing results and even failed to set times that matched their times in practice, those were Felipe Massa (12th), Heinz Harald Frentzen (19th) and Alex Yoong (22nd).

In the battle of the team-mates, Mark Webber yet again manages to have the biggest gap with a massive 1.839 seconds to his team-mate Alex Yoong. Giancarlo Fisichella out-qualified his team-mate Takuma Sato by 0.808 seconds and Nick Heidfeld out-qualified his team-mate Felipe Massa by 0.684 seconds.
Closest were Bernoldi and Frentzen with just 0.013 seconds between the two (this was the first time that Bernoldi managed to out-qualify Frentzen). Villeneuve managed to out-qualify Panis by 0.149 seconds while Trulli out-qualified Button by just 0.166 seconds.

Giancarlo Fisichella (6th) and Jacques Villeneuve (9th) had their best qualifying positions this season with Juan Pablo Montoya (1st) and Kimi Raikkonen (5th) equalled their best.
Mika Salo (18th), Heinz Harald Frentzen (19th) and Allan McNish (20th) had their worst qualifying positions so far this season with Ralf Schumacher (4th), David Coulthard (8th)Jesnon Button (13th), Mark Webber (21st) and Alex Yoong (22nd) equalling their worst positions.
