Schumacher fails to make it intoQ3

Michael Schumacher will start the Canadian Grand Prix from 13th on the grid.
Record breaking multiple F1 world champion Michael Schumacher will start Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix from a lowly 13th after failing to progress to Q3.

Schumacher was on the cusp for much of Q2 and in the end he wasn't quick enough to put his Mercedes in the top ten and will actually line-up behind the Williams' of Rubens Barrichello and Nico Hulkenberg. Schumacher pushed late on, but made an error and went straight on at the final chicane on his last lap.

Vitaly Petrov and the Toro Rosso's of Sebastien Buemi and Jaime Alguersuari meanwhile also went out in Q2 and will start in 14th, 15th and 16th respectively. Pedro de la Rosa was slowest and was only 17th in the second session.

At the top of the times, Lewis Hamilton again led the way - like he did in Q1 - and this time his best lap was a 1 minute 15.528 seconds, just ahead of Sebastian Vettel. Fernando Alonso completed the top three followed by Robert Kubica, Mark Webber, Jenson Button and Nico Rosberg.

Force India's Vitantonio Liuzzi and Adrian Sutil were eighth and ninth, while Felipe Massa finished Q2 in tenth.
