Melbourne 2001

1st-4th March.
Winner - Michael Schumacher, Ferrari. 2nd - David Coulthard, Mclaren Mercedes. 3rd Rubens Barrichello, Ferrari

I combined this trip with a holiday to Perth. I sat in the Fangio stand and again managed to get on to the track at the end of the race. Sadly a marshall was killed at this race when a tyre went through a hole in the fencing.
