2005 San Marino Grand Prix

After sliding off track during Sunday's second round of qualifying to a 13th grid position, Michael Schumacher showed us why he is a seven-time world champ. When the leaders went in for the first round of stops, Schuey stayed out for an additional four laps, setting fastest lap three out of the four. The Ferrari driver continued to shave 1.5-2.0+ seconds from second place Jenson Button, exhibiting the prowess of F2005 on Bridgestones. On lap 47, Button was passed as Schumacher dove into his inside at the Acqua Minerale. Soon, Fernando Alonso's rearview mirrors were full of the scarlet terror. For the last 13 laps, the Spaniard fought off the German to his third consecutive victory.

Toyota's Jarno Trulli and Ralf Schumacher finished seventh and eleventh, respectively.
