Report[edit]

Race[edit]

Mika Häkkinen took an instant lead from Michael Schumacher after the start. Eddie Irvine was ahead of Rubens Barrichello, Heinz-Harald Frentzen, Ralf Schumacher, Damon Hill and Jean Alesi. Jacques Villeneuve was left stranded on the grid after a clutch problem. In an unforced error, Häkkinen crashed out at the final Traguardo chicane on lap 17, allowing Michael Schumacher into the lead and his first win of the season.[1][2] Häkkinen would later repeat this error at the Italian Grand Prix, during which he spun off whilst leading comfortably.
