Australian Grand Prix, Melbourne won by Michael Schumacher in a Ferrari.
Melbourne Australia, saw the Australian GP get another Ferrari 1 - 2 finish when Michael Schumacher won, and fastest lap man, Rubens Barrichello came in second, 12.6 seconds later. Ralf Schumacher finished third in his Williams. Mika Hakkinen was on pole for the race but suffered a valve gear failure that put him out. Must have been a bad batch, because his teammate and outside pole sitter, Coulthard suffered the same fate.
