McLaren back again
Because everybody thought that it would start to rain in qualifying, all drivers (except Jenson Button) try to start early in the 2nd qualifying part, which means driving slowly. That causes a very funny first session with slow cars and spins on purose. In the second qualifying session (without any rain), Räikkonen is able to score pole position which demonstrates the big potential of the new McLaren, while Schumacher starts only from place 4.

Räikkonen is able to keep the lead at the start but loses it to Schumacher after the first pit stop.

Because of Trulli's accident, the safety car comes out and Räikkonen is able to refuel without losing a position while Schumacher continues driving.

Schumacher is able to keep the lead and wins 10 out of the first 11 races in this season, but McLaren regains it's place as a top team in Formula 1.
