The Minardi PS04B was a Formula One race car used by Minardi Cosworth in the 2004 Formula One season. It was driven by rookie Gianmaria Bruni, and Zsolt Baumgartner who had moved from Jordan. The team managed to earn their first point in two years, after Baumgartner finished 8th (albeit last) at the United States Grand Prix.

In 2005, Minardi used a PS04B chassis for the first three races of the season before they made a new PS05 chassis due to assembly problems.
