Seven-time Forumula One world champion Michael Schumacher has his first pole position and race victory since sensationally coming out of retirement in 2010.

The decorated German clocked the fastest time in practice for the Chinese Grand Prix in his rejuvenated Mercedes yesterday.

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton was second, Sebastian Vettel, the two-time reigning world champion, was third quickest, followed by Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber.
