German Grand Prix Race Report.

A classic race which had everything. A first corner accident, plenty of overtaking, 2 safety car situations and rain with 13 laps to go. This is what all Formula 1 races should be like!

Rubens Barrichello managed to win his first ever Formula 1 race in style. He started from 18th on the grid and was up to 6th by the fifth lap. With rain pouring down towards the end of the race, he took a risk and elected to stay on dry tyres while the others went for wets, the gamble paid off and he won. Mika Hakkinen came in second place and David Coulthard in 3rd. Jenson Button managed to finish in 4th ahead of Mika Salo and Pedro de la Rosa. Ralf Schumacher, Jacques Villeneuve, Jarno Trulli, Eddie Irvine and Gaston Mazzacane make the rest of the field as 11 cars retired including Michael Schumacher and Giancarlo Fisichella who touched and crashed out at the first corner.

This has made the drivers championship very close with Michael Schumacher on 56 points and David Coulthard and Mika Hakkinen tied on 54 points each. Rubens Barrichello even has a chance (if Ferrari allows him) as he is now only 10 points behind Michael Schumacher.

Lap by Lap

Jenson Button stalls on the formation lap but gets away with the help of his mechanics.

The race started with both Coulthard and Schumacher having relatively good starts but Hakkinen made a superb start managing to get between Fisichella and Michael Schumacher. Coulthard meanwhile moves across in front of Michael Schumacher to protect his position forcing Michael to move across in front of Giancarlo Fisichella who hits him and both go out. Meanwhile Hakkinen is already ahead of David Coulthard.

Order after lap 1: Mika Hakkinen ahead of David Coulthard and Jarno Trulli. Pedro de la Rosa, Johnny Herbert and Jos Verstappen make the top 6. Rubens Barrichello up to 9th from 18th.

Villeneuve passes Irvine for 8th on lap 23 and on lap 25 the safety car goes out so the marshals can remove a lunatic who is walking on the track !!. This causes everyone to make their pit stop, the main loser is Coulthard who stays out while Hakkinen makes his pit stop.
