Is Schuey Back To His Best? 17/20 Says Yes He Is
Michael Schumacher qualified fastest under the burning Monaco sun, although will not start on pole and William Hill make him 14/1 to win the race on Sunday. Mark Webber was the man to benefit from Schumacher's indiscretions last time around and he is the 7/4 favourite to win the race on a notoriously tricky circuit to overtake on. Hills are offering 5/4 that Schumacher finishes in fifth or higher, Evens that he finishes worse than his sixth place and 9/2 he moves neither up nor down. Schumacher is 17/20 to win a Grand Prix this season (17/20 not to).
"A fantastic result for Schumacher today and he has shown glimpses this season that he could be almost back to his best and it will take a brave man to back against finishing on top of a podium this season," said Joe Crilly of Hill's.
Jenson Button had an absolute shocker and qualified in 13th although Hills make him 2/5 to finish higher than where he starts tomorrow.
