On 28th April 2002, the Spanish Grand Prix was held in Barcelona, at the Circuit de Catalunya. It was the fifth round of the 2002 Formula One season and the forty-fourth Spanish Grand Prix.
In qualifying, it was clear from the start that the F2002 and Michael Schumacher had the edge. On Saturday, the German beat his team-mate Rubens Barrichello by almost half a second, while the only other driver to be within a second of pole was Ralf Schumacher in the Williams. In the race, the Ferrari was so dominant that Michael soon pulled away, but Rubens was left stranded with a technical problem and given the pace of the Ferrari, he would have been the only man capable of troubling the German.
His absence made life easier for Michael to do the Grand Slam, adding the race fastest lap to pole and the race win, the third time he’d managed it and the first time he had done it in a Ferrari. On 44, the Kerpen driver had almost twice as many points in the classification as his closest rival, Juan-Pablo Montoya, on 23 in the Williams. In the Constructors Championship, Ferrari extended their lead over Williams to seven points. The season definitely seemed to be going the way of Ferrari and Michael Schumacher.
