On this day in 2004 Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello led a dominant Ferrari 1-2 in the first ever Bahrain GP after securing a front row lockout for the Maranello team.

Bahrain was the third race of the championships that for the first time in history had 18 races, but new track brought no change at the top.

Michael Schumacher convincingly won his third pole position in three race in 2004 (1:30.139), which was 58th in his career), 0.391 seconds ahead of his team mate Barrichello, 0.442 s in front of Montoya in Williams and 0.494 s in front of his brother Ralf in second Williams.

Fifth and sixth at the start were BAR Honda drivers Sato and Button with about seven tenths of a second behind dominant Schumacher.

Schumacher and Barrichello kept their lead and sealed a convincing 1-2 victory for Ferrari, 26 seconds ahead of Button while Schumacher also set the fastest lap of the race (1:30.252), which was only one tenth of a second slower than his pole position lap.
