Alonso barely held on to his lead as he claimed the chequered flag in the San Marino Grand Prix.World champ Micheal Schumacher came second in his F2005 climbing from 13th place at the start. As the race progressed one could feel the Adrenaline. Schumacher overtook cars one after the other, his car arleast 1.5 seconds faster than anyone else. Button took an impressive third while Alexander Wurz came 4th. Wurz's brilliant performance forces us to think why McLaren hired Montoya in the first place, Wurz is obviously much faster.Villeneuve, for whom it was a do or die race showed he has still got it. It was an impressive start from pole starter Kimi who separated from the pack rightaway, leaving Alonso behind. But Kimi had to retire due to suspension problems.
The highlight of the race as I said was Schumi's performance. At post race press confrence, he thanked everyone except his Dog (must be feeling bad!). He stated that the last few races had brought negative publicity to tyre manufacturers Bridgestone and that he hoped this would set things right. Schumacher now has 10 points in the Driver's championship and now has shown to the world that he didn't become World Champion for nothing. What was remarkable was his difference in pace from teammate Barrichello. MShumacher was 3 seconds faster, showing that driving matters more than the car. Jordans once again showed their reliability with both cars finishing the race.
The race results with official timings will follow.
