Schumacher on Pole

IMOLA, Italy () -- Michael Schumacher edged out Gerhard Berger's Ferrari by .008 seconds Friday to earn the provisional pole position for the San Marino Grand Prix.


Schumacher's Benetton got around the 4.895-kilometer Imola track in 1 minute, 27.274 seconds, averaging 201.915 kph. It was a lap record for the "new" circuit, radically changed after Ayrton Senna's fatal crash last year.
