Double-victory for Ferrari
The track was changed slightly to favour overtaking maneuvers: After the Nissan-straight, a long wide left bend was changed to two sharp left corners.

In the qualifying, Michael Schumacher manages to get pole (not very surprisingly) however Rubens Barrichello is 1.2 seconds and 4 places behind him.

At the start, Jarno Trulli is able to take the lead from his 4th starting position, but loses it after the first pitstop.

Barrichello is using a different strategy as Schumacher and is able to get to the second position.

Thus this race ends in a double-victory for Ferrari, the third in this season. Renault is taking places 3 and 4 and has become a serious candidate for vice-champion.
