Notes[edit]

  • Heinz-Harald Frentzen was back in action after being sacked by the Jordan team, taking the place of Jean Alesi at Prost; Alesi took Frentzen's place at Jordan for the remainder of the season.
  • From this race to the end of the season, Jarno Trulli drove the number 11 Jordan car instead of the number 12, which was given to Alesi.
  • Eddie Irvine spun out his Jaguar at the first corner at the start.
  • The 1-2 finish by Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello meant that Ferrari clinched their third consecutive constructor's championship.
