The 2003 San Marino Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held on April 20, 2003 at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Italy. The race, contested over 62 laps, was the fourth round of the 2003 Formula One season and was won by Ferrari driver Michael Schumacher.
Death of Schumachers' mother
Ralf and Michael Schumacher raced despite the death of their mother just hours before the race. They sported black armbands and no champagne was sprayed on the podium as a mark of respect. This was also the last race for the Ferrari F2002, concluding its successful career with a win. Ferrari team principal Jean Todt took Michael's place at the post-race press conference.
Trophy Handover from Brazilian Grand Prix
Confusion caused by a red flag at the end of the previous race in Brazil had led to Kimi Räikkönen being declared the winner. An investigation by the FIA in the days following the race proved that Giancarlo Fisichella had been the actual victor. On the Friday of the San Marino Grand Prix meeting, a ceremony was held in which Kimi Räikkönen and Ron Dennis presented their winners' trophies from the 2003 Brazilian Grand Prix to Giancarlo Fisichella and Eddie Jordan.
