FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX in MAGNY-COURS

QUALIFYING SESSION in MAGNY-COURS

SCHUMACHER ON POLE POSITION

Schumacher drove the fastest time in the Qualifying session. And so we
will see a Ferrari on pole position in the Renault / Peugeot homeland.
Damon Hill will start in second position. The both Benetton-Renault have
qaulified in the second row (Alesi third - Berger fourth). Good job from
Martin Brundle who will start on 8th position. The other Jordan-Peugeot
driver Barrichello who was the fastest in the morning session drove the
11th fastest time. Villeneuve who was the 6th fastest escaped unhurt a
heavy crash. He was hitting into the tyres wall. His Williams has been
skided back on the track and it happened almost a further incident when
Coulthard came along. He could avoid a collision by driving on the lawn.
Villeneuve continued the session in the spare car. Coulthard has qualified
in 7th position and team mate Hakkinen in 5th.
