Schumi beats lap record  
 
At day three at Jerez there was finaly something to celebrate for Ferrari. At the first two days of testing testdriver Badoer crashed hard. But on day three it was Michael Schumacher behind the wheel and he bounced completely back from the disapointing race at China. On his fifth lap he set a time of 1.15.650 which beat the former record of the track, set by Rubens Barrichellow (1.16.106). Schumacher was 0,8 seconds faster than the number two of the day, McLaren testdriver Alex Wurz.
In total Schumacher drove 89 laps on the final day of testing this week at Jerez.

The best and the worst  
 
A great pole, a great race and a fantastic victory of Rubens Barrichello. He goes into the books as the first driver to win the GP of China. Jenson Button became second and Kimi Raikonnen third.
For Michael Schumacher, who started as last, the race didn't went well. He had a toucher with a Jaguar and had to come in with a flat rear tire. Earlier he also spun in a high speed corner. In the end he finished out of the points as twelfth.

Rubens wins Monza!  
 
Leaving from pole position Rubens had the best chances of winning the Monza GP. But he was on a complete different strategy. Because of the damp track (it had rained in the morning) he started the race on intermediate tyres. After only three laps he had a lead of almost 8 seconds on the number two, Button. But after five laps the track was dry and the gap was gone. In lap six Rubens went into the pits for new tyres...and by that time he was already overtaken by Button.
Michael Schumacher had also a strange start. In the first lap he spun and was driving on place 15!
After the pitstops the power of the Ferrari team showed off again. The strategy was superb.
With just six laps of the race remaining Michael Schumacher moved to within one second of his teammate who led the race. Button was third and was seven seconds behind. His teammate Sato was a further seven seconds behind him.
Schumacher did not attack Barrichello and Rubens crossed the chequered flag as first and collected his first win of the season, the first since Suzuka last year.

Schumacher crashes hard at Monza  
 
Michael Schumacher had a hard crash today during testing at Monza. He hit the barriers at the straight. The F2004 wasn't that badly damaged but because of the increadable hard impact (he drove 300 km/h) Schumacher had to lie down into the grass. Luckaly he was able to walk away from the scene and said he was fine.
A Ferrari spokesman said: "He is fortunately fine. He was down in the grass for a moment because he was a bit shocked by the big impact of the crash."
