5 in a row for Michael Schumacher! This may the best season yet for the German driver. Rubens Barrichello managed to finish second on a different strategy while Jarno Trulli's amazing start secured a podium for him.

A few highlights;

  • Once again Michael Schumacher manages to take the lead via the pits and never looks back despite having an cracked exhaust for most of the race!. Rubens Barrichello was on heavier fuel load which explains his 5th place on the grid. He managed to finish second but appeared not to be pushing Michael. Was he told to hold his position ?.

  • Jarno Trulli's superb start from 4th into 1st virtually guaranteed him a podium place while Fernando Alonso moved from 8th on the grid to 4th at the end of the race. Renault are now clearly the second best team behind Ferrari.

  • Takuma Sato starting from 3rd ended up 5th which is disappointing and that could be due to lack of experience. Jenson Button didn't impress either as he did in earlier races despite finishing 8th after starting from 14th. 

  • Williams had a reasonable qualifying session but weren't strong in the race. Montoya retired with a brake problem while Ralf only managed 6th and was having brake problems as well.  

  • Sauber did well here and it is good to see them score points on merit. Fisichella scored 2 points while Massa just missed out finishing 9th. Doing well in Spain is a good sign that the team may be improving.

  • McLaren can now be classified as being part of the midfield competing with the likes of Sauber, Jaguar and Toyota. Shocking!

  • Jaguar and Toyota didn't live up to their qualifying performances while both Jordans and Minardis retired!

It sucked. RB is the biggest victim at that race and that play at his 2nd pitstop was even worse.. red, redder, redder - Al - Syria

Lack of Comment? I was just waiting for Frank to explain why he can't get the cars to brake on a track they do the most testing on..Ooohhh Wait a minute.. I know.. HE thought they WERE testing.. that must be it. 
Don't worry, it's Monaco next. Williams yearly revival. 1-2 Montoya and Ralph, and all will be right with the world.....BIZZAROWORLD !!! - Tom H - USA

The lack of comment on this race , even from the usual suspects, really says it all - Gavin H - Australia

I think if they would put Schumacher in just about any other car, he would eventually make that car and team win. He has truly transcended the sport. That being said, I don't need to hear that exclusively. And too often, while watching the Speed-vision rendition here in the States, that's just about all we here about. Especially from the American announcer. And they don't show much of the rest of the race, just the leaders. Renault was fun to watch. Fernando was funny to watch, with all that understeer. His steering wheel had 2 positions, Straight, or fully locked. 
I hear that Ralph Schumacher was in the race, but they never really showed that part of the race. They only show Ralph when he's doing something stupid. But they did show Juan cook his brakes. No shock there. BAR failed to show up. 
Toyota did what they have been doing. Panis was running in the top 10, and got another drive through. daMatta was never in it. 
As you say Mclaren is now very average, and Sauber is driving last years Ferrari, which will give them a 10th place finish every week. After that you have Mark Webber, Nick Heidfeld, and a host of Pay drivers. When Verstappen comes back, I hope Toyota picks up Heidfeld. 
I have a Qualifying solution. Have them qualify from a dead stop, just like they start the race. 4 single lap qualifying, from a dead stop for each driver, and take the average of the 4. 
My F-1 Prayer. Oh Lord, please don't make me wait until next year again - John N - USA

I think that Todt, Brown, Montezemolo and Schumacher are in a journey to record their names in F1 history in a way that nobody will be able to surpass them. It is obvious that Barrichello is a mere co-actor in this schema. RB will only win races when it will be convenient to Ferrari and there is a lot of discussion about this subject here in Brazil. People wondering why he accept this subservient role. 
Is he really wrong? He is driving the best car for the best team and eventually Schumacher will retire. Let's hope he will break all the records in 2004 (7 more poles, a 6th in a row in Monaco, 12 winnings or more) and we may have a fight in 2005 - Andre B - Brazil

Yawn - Bryan F - Australia
