Motor Racing: DEJA VU ALL OVER AGAIN.

GRAND PRIX weekends are taking on a familiar look from beginning to very end. It usually starts with Ferrari setting the pace in open practice on Fridays. By Saturday afternoon Michael Schumacher comes out with just a few minutes of qualifying remaining and nicks pole position.

It is even possible to set your clock on Sundays by the brilliant German driver. At 2pm he leads into the first corner, by 4pm he takes the chequered flag and a few minutes later he is making his well-practised leap into the air on the podium, emulating Ferrari's prancing horse.

Here are the winning margins this season that have had Schu leading the celebrations.

Australia: Schumacher led home Juan Pablo Montoya's Williams by 18.628 seconds.

Brazil: He beat brother Ralf by 0.588 of a second.

San Marino: This time his margin over Ferrari team-mate Rubens Barrichello was 17.907 seconds.

Spain: Yesterday he had a massive 35.630 seconds to spare over Montoya.
