Hun­garor­ing, Hun­gary 16.08.98 Car Fer­rari F300 Grid 3rd

Podium David Coulthard, Jac­ques Vil­leneuve Ar­guably one of the great­est wins of his ca­reer and cer­tainly one of Ross Brawn’s proud­est. The Fer­rari clearly wasn’t as quick as the McLarens at the no­to­ri­ously hard-to-pass Hun­garor­ing. Start­ing third be­hind the McLarens, Fer­rari chose to switch their strat­egy mid-race from two to three stops. But that re­quired Schu­macher to pull out a 22-sec­ond lead over Häkki­nen be­fore his fi­nal stop. A se­ries of blis­ter­ing qual­i­fy­ing-es­que laps let Schumi find the gap and he emerged from his fi­nal stop in the lead of the race. Truly im­pres­sive.
