Race Report - Results

Michael Schumacher wins his 57th Grand Prix ahead of Juan Pablo Montoya and David Coulthard. Nick Heidfeld, Felipe Massa and Heinz Harald Frentzen make the top 6.

As expected Michael Schumacher won the race with relative ease ending up over 35 seconds over Juan Pablo Montoya. A number of other drivers however had major dramas during the race.
Even before the start of the race, the Minardi team decided to withdraw from the race after suffering from 3 wing failures during the weekend.
Rubens Barrichello couldn't get his car going at the formation lap and despite being attended to by the mechanics in the pit lane he had to retire making it his 4th retirement this season.
The race started with Michael Schumacher getting away cleanly with Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya behind. Jenson Button starting from 6th on the grid managed to get ahead of Kimi Raikkonen at the start but Raikkonen took his place back at the first corner.
The order after the first lap was Michael Schumacher leading Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya. Raikkonen, Button and Coulthard made the top 6.
Michael Schumacher started to build a gap to Ralf Schumacher immediately showing the pace he had all weekend.
Pedro de la Rosa spun out of the race on the third lap while Kimi Raikkonen lost his rear wing on the 5th lap and Giancarlo Fisichella retired in the pits a lap later.
5 laps later and the second Jordan of Takuma Sato retires as a result of a spin.

The first round of pit stops started on lap 24 with Michael leading Ralf Schumacher by over 17 seconds. 
Michael Schumacher kept the lead following the first round of pit stops and Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya maintained their positions. Ralf Schumacher though appeared to have made a mistake and run wide damaging the front wing and was forced to pit.
The order after Ralf's incident was Michael Schumacher ahead of Juan Pablo Montoya and Jenson Button. Coulthard was 4th ahead of Trulli and Heidfeld.
Jenson Button appeared to be struggling after his first stop and on lap 35 Coulthard managed to take 3rd and a couple of laps later Button lets his team-mate Jarno Trulli through.

The order for the top 6 remains until the 2nd round of pit stops. Meanwhile Ralf Schumacher struggling in 13th place pits again and gets another front wing.

At the second round of pit stops Michael Schumacher kept the lead but drama for Montoya as he gets the all clear signal from the lollipop man but the fuel hose was still engaged. Montoya hits one of the mechanics luckily though the mechanic isn't seriously injured.
Jenson Button in 5th still struggling pits while defending his position from Heidfeld. They leave the pits together and were side by side exiting the pit lane. Heidfeld managed to pass Button at the first corner.

Order following the 2nd round of pit stops, Michael Schumacher leading Juan Pablo Montoya and David Coulthard. Trulli, Heidfeld and Button make the top 6.
Jenson Button continued to struggle dropping 6th place to Massa and a few laps from the end Trulli experiences problems and drops out of the points as well allowing both Heidfeld and Massa from the Sauber team as well as Heinz Harald Frentzen to move into the points.

So Michael Schumacher won his 4th race of the season (the 3rd in a row) ahead of Juan Pablo Montoya and David Coulthard. Nick Heidfeld, Felipe Massa and Heinz Harald Frentzen made the top 6.
Jacques Villeneuve was the only Honda runner to finish and for the second race in a row finishes just outside the points with McNish and Salo in 8th and 9th respectively. Trulli was classified 10th despite pulling into the pits 2 laps down while Ralf Schumacher was classified 11 also 2 laps down and Jenson Button was 12th and 5 laps down.

Michael Schumacher with 44 points extends his championship lead to 11 points over Juan Pablo Montoya with 23 points who takes second place from his team-mate Ralf Schumacher with 20 points. David Coulthard is 4th with 9 points ahead of Jenson Button with 8.

Michael Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya keep their records intact with 5 out of 5 finishes all of which in the points. Jenson Button has for the first time this season failed to score although he was classified as a finisher albeit 5 laps down.
On the other side, Olivier Panis and Enrique Bernoldi continue their disastrous record of not finishing a race out of 5 starts. While Fisichella and Barrichello have now failed to finish in 4 races out of 5. It is particularly frustrating for Barrichello whose team-mate has finished 5 out of 5 and winning 4 of them!

In the Constructors' Championship, Ferrari with 50 points lead Williams with 43 while McLaren are in 3rd place with 13 points ahead of both Renault and Sauber with 8 points each.

With the exception of BAR and Jordan (both powered by Honda engines), all the teams have scored so far this season.
