- 2004 Brazilian Grand Prix
The 2004 Brazilian Grand Prix was a
Formula Onerace held on October 24, 2004at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace. It was the final race of the 2004 season, and local fans were delighted when Brazil's Rubens Barrichellotook pole for his home race. The early laps were held in changeable conditions, and the race ended up as a duel between Kimi Räikkönen and Juan Pablo Montoya, who were to be McLaren team-mates for 2005. Montoya's move to take the lead was brave even by his standards. Elsewhere, Jaguar's final race was a disaster, with their two drivers colliding, with Webber trying an optimistic-looking move on Klien whilst expecting his team-mate to move over.
