Race Report - Results

Michael Schumacher wins his 9th race of the season ahead of Juan Pablo Montoya and Ralf Schumacher. Rubens Barrichello, David Coulthard and Nick Heidfeld make the top 6.
Felipe Massa, Takuma Sato and Mika Salo were the only other drivers to cross the finish line.

The race started with Michael Schumacher retaining his position in the lead followed by Ralf Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello. Juan Pablo Montoya starting from 4th lost a place to Kimi Raikkonen while Jarno Trulli managed to move up into 6th from 8th.

Michael Schumacher starts to build a gap to Ralf Schumacher and by the 10th lap he was over 4 seconds ahead. Rubens Barrichello was close behind Ralf while Montoya was losing time behind Raikkonen and raced wheel to wheel with him for a few corners until he managed to get by. Behind the top 5, nearly the rest of the field were very close and we saw a lot of overtaking between them.

By lap 15, Michael Schumacher couldn't increase the gap to Ralf and it was stable at 4.5 seconds. 
The first round of pits stops for the leaders was around lap 28. Barrichello was the first to pit then Michael. Ralf Schumacher put in a couple of fastest laps before his pit stop but was unable to pass Michael via the pits.
Order after the first round of pit stops: M Schumacher, R Schumacher, Barrichello, Montoya, Raikkonen and Coulthard.

Michael Schumacher starts building the gap again to Ralf while Barrichello in 3rd appeared to be losing some time. Montoya in 4th was 19 seconds behind the lead while the rest of the field were a long way behind.
Ralf Schumacher looked to be struggling on this set of tyres as he couldn't keep up with Michael and was around 7 seconds behind just before the second round of stops.
Meanwhile, Raikkonen in 5th suffers from a tyre puncture and loses a lot of time trying to get back to the pits. He eventually rejoins at the back.

The second round of pit stops was around lap 48 and Barrichello was the first to pit and this time it was his turn to have a refuelling problem and the stop took over 21 seconds. Michael Schumacher then pitted with Ralf Schumacher and Montoya pitting on the following two laps.
Order after the second round of pit stops: M Schumacher, R Schumacher, Montoya, Barrichello, Coulthard and Heidfeld.

The race looked settled by that stage with Michael Schumacher leading Ralf Schumacher by 9 seconds while Montoya was 22 seconds behind the lead and Rubens Barrichello 29 seconds behind.
But just 4 laps from the end Ralf Schumacher makes an unscheduled pit stop were the team makes some adjustment to his car and he doesn't take on any fuel or change tyres. This pit stop costs him second place and he rejoins in 3rd behind his team-mate Juan Pablo Montoya.
With Ralf dropping back, Michael Schumacher eases on his last 3 laps and goes on to win his first race with Ferrari at the German Grand Prix. Juan Pablo Montoya was second with Ralf Schumacher in third ahead of Rubens Barrichello. David Coulthard was 5th and Nick Heidfeld making the top 6.

Only 9 cars managed to cross the finish line, 5 of them a lap down. 
The race was run under warm to hot conditions with air temperature reaching 30 degrees and track temperatures reaching 42 degrees!

Eddie Irvine continued his streak of non finishes with 5 in a row while Jarno Trulli has 3 in a row. Mika Salo broke his non finishing streak of 5 by finishing in 9th!

So Michael Schumacher now has 106 points in the Drivers Championship (he has clinched the title already) ahead of Juan Pablo Montoya with 40 and Ralf Schumacher with 36. Rubens Barrichello has 35 points while David Coulthard has 32. It is still close for second.
In the Constructors' Title, Ferrari have 141 points ahead of Williams with 76. McLaren in 3rd have 49 while Renault in 4th have 15 not to far from Sauber in 5th with 11 points.
Ferrari only need to score 15 points in the last 5 races of the season to clinch the Constructors title and that shouldn't be too difficult to achieve. In fact if they finish 1-2 in Hungary they'll do it with 4 races to spare.!
