BMW motorsport director Gerhard Berger is predicting both Williams' drivers could be on the podium at the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend, with Ralf Schumacher being the favourite. Williams are confident of having a good weekend at the Interlagos circuit after their 1-2 finish in Malaysia.

Last year Schumacher was sent out of the race by Rubens Barrichello hitting him from behind -- the second race in a row that the Brazilian and Schumacher had clashed. The German managed to get back out on track after repairs but retired later in the race. Team mate Juan Pablo Montoya was equally unlucky when he was removed from the race by Jos Verstappen.

Berger, however, remembers Schumacher's speed on the bumpy Interlagos circuit and thinks both he and Montoya can race to the podium: "In my opinion, Ralf is the favourite," he said. "In the previous year, he was really very quick. I am convinced that our car will work well there. All together, I see both of our drivers on 'podium-finish' course."
