Spanish GP 2004 - No bull from Schumi.

Local hero Alonso had not been able to give the massed ranks of flag-waving fans the strong qualifying performance that they had craved 24 hours earlier, but put together another fighting drive to latch on to the rear of his team-mate in the closing stages. Trulli, no doubt succumbing gradually to his virus, could only watch the second blue-and-yellow machine coming closer, but had just enough in hand to take his fourth career podium in a formation finish. Incidentally, the last time the Italian appeared in the top three, at Hockenheim in 2003, came while he was similarly afflicted by illness....

Out front, however, there as little to touch Ferrari, even though the leading F2004 sounded as rough as Trulli did in the ensuing press conference. Barrichello's botched pit-stop ensured that he never got closer than 13secs to Schumacher, allowing the German to rack up his fifth straight win of the year, equalling Nigel Mansell's 1992 mark in his 200th grand prix.
