Schumacher at Spa in a record-breaking year

2002spa

Looking forward to Formula One getting back to action at Spa-Francorchamps soon? To tide you over, here's a flashback to the 2002 race which was dominated by the Ferraris of Michael Schumacher (pictured) and Rubens Barrichello, who were joined on the podium at the end of the race by Williams' Juan Pablo Montoya.

By this point in the season, Schumacher had already clinched the world championship. He went on to finish on the podium in every race in 2002 including 11 race wins, which was a new record surpassing the previous one held jointly by himself (in 1995, 2000 and 2001) and Nigel Mansell (1992).
