Suzuka, Ja­pan 08.10.00 Car Fer­rari F1-2000 Grid 1st

Podium Mika Häkki­nen, David Coulthard The world cham­pi­onship ti­tle fight went down to the wire be­tween Schu­macher and McLaren’s Mika Häkki­nen. The Finn led from the start, keep­ing his po­si­tion at the head of the field after the open­ing pit­stops. When the rain started to fall, true to form, Schu­macher be­gan to close the gap. This was a stun­ning bat­tle be­tween two of the top driv­ers in the sport. The emo­tion was huge as Michael made up the time in the rain and at the sec­ond pitstop emerged ahead of Häkki­nen. Michael took his third world driv­ers’ ti­tle and the first for Fer­rari since 1979.
