Sauber success at Barcelona

Both Sauber drivers finish in the points in Spain behind the winner, Michael Schumacher

(Keystone)

Both drivers from Switzerland's Sauber team have finished in the points at the Barcelona Grand Prix - Nick Heidfeld in fourth and Felipe Massa in fifth.

The result lifts the team to joint fourth in the constructors championship.

Victory went to Germany's Michael Schumacher, who dominated the race from pole to finish. The win, the Ferrari driver's fourth out of the five Formula One races this season, lifts him 21 points clear of his nearest rival, Juan Pablo Montoya, in the championship standings. It was also Schumacher's 57th career win.

Schumacher started the race in a backup car after his main car suffered hydraulic problems in the morning's practice session.

Montoya - in a BMW-Williams was just over half a minute behind in second - the third time the Colombian has been runner-up this season. And Britain's David Coulthard was third in his McLaren.

Only six cars finished on the same lap as Schumacher, who also won in Spain a year ago.
