Rubens Barrichello

Runner-up, Schumacher's teammate Rubens Barrichello.

The 2004 Formula One season was the 55th FIA Formula One season, contested over 18 Grands Prix. The season commenced on March 7, 2004 in Australia, and finished on October 24, 2004 in Brazil.

The season was dominated by Ferrari driver Michael Schumacher who won an all-time record of 13 out of 18 races on his way to a seventh Drivers' World Championship. The success of Schumacher and his team-mate, Rubens Barrichello, propelled Ferrari to a 14th World Constructors' Championship. BAR-Honda driver, Jenson Button took third place in the Drivers' World Championship.

2004 was a debut season for Timo Glock, Giorgio Pantano and Gianmaria Bruni.

Drivers who left F1 after the 2004 season include Cristiano da Matta and 1996 Monaco winner Olivier Panis.

Teams and DriversEdit

The 2004 season was entered by 10 teams, sporting a total of 25 drivers over 18 races. There were no new team entries in 2004.

In 2004, any team which had finished outside of the top-four in the 2003 Constructors' World Championship were allowed to run a third car in all practice sessions. This included all teams except Ferrari, Williams-BMW, McLaren-Mercedes and Renault. All other teams apart from Sauber-Petronas elected to take up the offer. Sauber decided against a third driver on financial grounds. These third drivers were ineligible for qualifying and the race.

Calendar ChangesEdit

Following the treacherous conditions at the 2003 Brazilian Grand Prix, the event was moved to the end of the season for 2004. There were two new races on the calendar: the Bahrain Grand Prix at the newly built Sakhir Circuit and the Chinese Grand Prix at the new Shanghai Intenational Circuit. The Belgian Grand Prix returned to the calendar after a one year hiatus. Leaving the Formula One calendar in 2004 was the Austrian Grand Prix, previously held at the A1 Ring. The main circuit facilities were later demolished, before being bought by Red Bull. This meant that the number of races increased from 16 in 2003 to 18 in 2004.
