Whilst Jenson Button sped off into the lead from his first pole position, Michael Schumacher was having to deal with a typically aggressive Juan Pablo Montoya.

Montoya tried to go around the outside of the Ferrari at the Tosa hairpin before being unceremoniously pushed onto the grass. Then, when he rejoined the circuit, he returned the favour to the other Schumacher – teammate Ralf.

In the post-race press conference, JPM was his typical no-nonsense self and said exactly what he thought of Michael’s driving.

Damn, those Walrus-nose Williams look so cool now!
