On this day in 2004 Michael Schumacher secured fourth consecutive victory in 2004 F1 season after Jenson Button defeated him in qualifying day earlier, first time in 2004.

Button won a brilliant pole position in his BAR Honda 006 after Schumacher made a mistake in a Variante Alta chicane at the start of third sector after he had 0.234 seconds advantage in the first two sectors. Nevertheless, the German driver had more fuel in his Ferrari F2004 and won the race convincigly extending his first stint.

Jenson had a rocket start from the pole position and had already 2.7 seconds advantage at the end of the first lap, but Schumacher managed to fend off Montoya’s attacks and close in on Jenson.

It was Schumacher’s 74th victory in his career and sixth in San Marino GP (1994, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003 and 2004), and he celebrated another victory at the same circuit in 2006, in the race where he surpassed Senna’s record of 65 pole positions.
