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.
