With news minimal about Michael Schumacher as he remains hospitalized following his ski injury, we thought it appropriate in the run up to the Australian Grand Prix to relive the good moments when discussing the seven-time World Champion instead.
Schumacher is one of only two four-time winners of the race in its history; Lex Davison, the other four-time winner, won the event when it was not a part of the championship.
And so this year marks the 10-year anniversary of Schumacher’s fourth and final win at Albert Park in Melbourne. He also won three straight years from 2000 to 2002.
Schumacher’s 2004 win was one of his most dominant. He completed the “grand slam,” winning pole position, leading every one of the 58 laps and setting the fastest lap in the process.
The win over teammate Rubens Barrichello in the Ferrari F2004 was Schumacher’s first of what would be a record-setting 13 victories in that 2004 season, also the year he won the last of his seven titles.
The start, then, of what became a record-setting campaign is above.
