Barcelona, Spain 02.06.96 Car Ferrari F310 Grid 3rd
Podium Jean Alesi, Jacques Villeneuve A switch to an uncompetitive Ferrari meant Schumi was in need of divine intervention. It came in the form of heavy rain before the race. From P3, a bad start dropped Michael to ninth at the first corner. He fought up to sixth at the end of the opening lap. By lap 12 he’d picked off Berger, Hill, Alesi and Villeneuve to lead the race. His car control was extraordinary as he took a brilliant first win for Ferrari.
