He posted the fastest time in Saturday's qualifying to stop the recent dominance of Williams-BMW. Barrichello was timed in 1 minute, 21.019 seconds on 3.195-mile Silverstone circuit.

It was the second pole this season for Barrichello, after the Brazilian Grand Prix in April. He has eight in his career.

Jarno Trulli of Renault was second in 1:21.38. McLaren's Kimi Raikkonen, who trails Michael Schumacher in the season standings by eight points, registered 1:21.695 for third.

Ralf Schumacher of Williams-BMW was fourth and brother Michael Schumacher was fifth.

Michael Schumacher, a five-time world champion, won this race last year, with Barrichello second.

This marked only the second time in the last eight sessions neither Schumacher has won the pole.

"Fifth place is not the end of the world, although it will make my life more difficult," Michael Schumacher said.

Ralf Schumacher struggled early in the season but won three of the previous four poles.

"I believe we are well prepared for the race even though my qualifying result wasn't excellent, mainly due to the fact that I was struggling with the balance of my car," he said.

Under the new qualifying rules all the drivers have just one lap to set a time and go in reverse order from Friday's prequalifying results. They cannot change tires or add fuel to the cars until the race starts.
