Monaco 2012 - Starting grid // A couple of penalties change the order, including pole position

Published by Christine

Michael Schumacher secured pole position in Monaco but it was only momentarily, as the Mercedes driver already knew he was to take a five place grid drop after an incident with Bruno Senna in Spain. Pastor Maldonado also faced a ten place drop after crashing into Sergio Pérez during FP3, and potentially a five place drop on top of that for changing his gearbox.
