* Monaco Grand Prix: Michael Schumacher set the fastest time in qualifying, but his qualifying times were deleted after he stopped his car at Rascasse, meaning the other drivers would have been unable to faster time than Schumacher. Although Schumacher claimed it was an error, but he was still penalised. He started from the pit lane.
