1. 2004 has seen Schumacher have his best season start ever!
2. Barrichello on fresh tyres was far faster than Schumacher who was struggling for grip through the corners.
3. The two sharp chops that Schumy gave Barri were totally uncalled for. I only wish someone like Montoya was there in that tight spot and Schumacher had to cut him like that.
4. Barrichello has supported Schumacher on more than a million occassions. Schumacher is faster on 95% of the days, but those 5% when its Barris day....well he deserves that victory.

Say your the team manager and your number 1 driver is going for an all time record that probably will remain unbeaten in a very very long time.
And then you have a second driver who hasnt had any win.

What do you do?
what would YOU do if were the team manager?
