Post Australian GP Press Conference
March 4th, 2001

The conference was a subdued affair following the death of  the Field Marshall. Following is a word-to-word commentary:

Coulthard, Schumacher and BarichelloQ: Michael a simple story of your race please.
Michael Schumacher: Obviously I had a great start. We worked hard over the winter on that, and as you see it worked out, it went very well and I was quite pleased about this. Then I just tried to get my race into a kind of rhythm where I drove fast when I had to be fast and not to overdrive the car when it was unnecessary. Then we had the safety car situation and then we have just been told that the marshal did die, and obviously we are all shocked about this. We have to look at what is possible from our side what kind of support we can give but certainly everyone is very down for this situation.

Q: David a quick word from you.
David Coulthard
: Well obviously the overriding story of the race, as Michael just mentioned, the fatality of the marshal; on behalf of all the drivers our thoughts go to his family. We need to study how we can improve track safety for these people who give their time to enable us to go racing. That to one side, I had a fairly straightforward race to pick up six points but that seems fairly insignificant when there is a loss of life involved.

Q: And finally Rubens.
Rubens Barrichello:I mean to score some points to begin with is quite good, but we definitely are not happy, as David and Michael just said. When a colleague who is there for you happens to be in an incident like that.... my thoughts are all with him and his family. I think there is no way we can make up for this race.
