Ferrari 1-2 in 1st practice session

Michael Schumacher is taking the new one-engine-per-weekend rule very seriously.

Rather than overwork the power plant in his Ferrari F2004, the six-time World Champion put in just two flying laps in the opening free practice session for the 2004 Foster’s Australian Grand Prix.

The first was better than his pole position here last year.

The second was the fastest lap ever recorded around the 5.303-km Grand Prix circuit – a 1:25.127 that eclipsed even team-mate Rubens Barrichello’s 2002 pole-winning effort.

Just to emphasise their early superiority, it was Barrichello’s sister car that took second spot on 1:25.361.

Italian Jarno Trulli in his Anglo-French Renault came closest, but that was 1.898 seconds off Schumacher’s pace.

The 2003 Melbourne winner David Coulthard played a waiting game, bringing his McLaren out with just over 10 minutes of the hour remaining, and posted a 1:27.264 that was good enough for fourth.

Australia’s Mark Webber also came out late but made a quick impression by firing his Jaguar into the top 10.
