Rubens Barrichello

Runner-up, Schumacher's Ferrari teammate, Rubens Barrichello.

The 2002 Formula One season was the 53rd season of FIA Formula One motor racing. It consisted of seventeen races, starting in Australia on March 3 and finishing in Japan on October 13.

Both World Championships were won in dominant fashion by Michael Schumacher and Ferrari. Schumacher finished every race on the podium, with eleven wins, six second places and a third place. His tally of eleven victories was a record, jointly held by himself (in 1995, 2000 and 2001) and Nigel Mansell (in 1992), before he broke it in 2004. He also secured the earliest clinching of the title, after just 11 of the 17 races on July 21st at the French Grand Prix. He also set a record for the largest championship point margin to second place, 67 points ahead of teammate Rubens Barrichello. Schumacher's point total of 144 is the highest percentage of total points available to a driver in a season, at 84.71%.

Ferrari, in their dominant F2002, scored nine one-two finishes, including doing so at the last five races. In the process, they scored as many points as the other ten teams managed put together.
