Jani and DAMS lose a place in the championship after stewards decision.

The 2004 FRV6 season finished in strange circumstances; Neel Jani, who had finished 6th, was penalised by race officials with a drive-through penalty (converted into a 30 second penalty as the penalty was inflicted after the finish of the race). The penalty came after a contact between Sharp and Jani at the beginning of the race? The entire DAMS Team was very disappointed by this decision as the day before a similar contact made Jani lose the race and no penalty was inflicted on the other driver. The loss of these points cost Jani the 3rd final rank in the championship and the second place in the Team's Championship for DAMS.

Memo Rojas again took big points with a 6th place in this final race, from 11th on grid. Memo had a solid and consistent race, and after finishing on 62 points in the final rankings of the Championship, he has made one of the best improvements in the hierarchy during the 2nd half of the season.

Jose Maria Lopez who was passing Van Lagen for 2nd place in the first corner had to get off the track and came back onto the track in last position. He then made an impressive comeback to 10th position.
