Rubens Barrichello showed obvious pace early in the race and it soon became evident that he was on a two-stop strategy, while the Williams-BMWs of Ralf Schumacher and Juan-Pablo Montoya were fuelled heavily and stopping just once, as is traditionally the case at Monza. Michael Schumacher was also two-stopping, but he struggled with pace and was never in the hunt for victory. So it was Barrichello who was the man for Ferrari. However, he couldn't make the strategy work and had to settle for 2nd behind a jubilant Montoya, who celebrated his maiden win in Formula 1. Ralf Schumacher was third, with a strangely lacklustre Michael Schumacher in fourth.

The pre-race build-up was notable for the fact that Michael Schumacher attempted to organise a pact that would see the drivers treat the first lap as if it were taking place behind the safety car. The plan failed, with Jacques Villeneuve and Benetton's Flavio Briatore refusing to accept the pact. Schumacher had been keen to avoid any accidents at the start, due to a combination of the effects of the September 11, 2001 attacks earlier that week; the death of a marshal in a pile-up at the beginning of the previous year's race; and the horrific accident in the previous day's ChampCar race in Germany, in which former F1 driver Alex Zanardi was critically injured, leading to the amputation of both legs. In pre-race interviews, several drivers stated that it was important to ensure that the race pass by without a further major incident.[citation needed]
