San Marino GP 2002 - Schu in a class of his own.

The retirement list between Fisichella and Raikkonen was filled by Heinz-Harald Frentzen, Mika Salo, Pedro de la Rosa and Olivier Panis, while Eddie Irvine and Enrique Bernoldi added themselves to the list in the closing stages.

There was better news for Jacques Villeneuve, however, who claimed BAR's best finish of the season in seventh, and Mark Webber, who maintained Minardi's position towards the head of the 'laps completed' table as the last finisher in eleventh.

Back at the front, there was little to trouble the other Italian team, with Schumacher clearing his final stop to ease towards a third victory of the year. Only a bobble on Barrichello's second tyre change looked to threaten the 1-2, but Schumacher Jr's Williams was just far enough back to take advantage.

Thus the F2002 retained its 100 per cent winning record, Schumacher extended the target for career wins to 56 with a record fourth at Imola, and Barrichello racked up his first finish of the year. A few good reasons for the tifosi to celebrate.
