[Music] thank you jim well you can see this wonderful eiffel mountains countryside spread out there where within sight of the fabulous old nordschleife the original nurburgring which was so revered by drivers like the great juan manuel fangio tarzio novolari rudolf kracciola aquilei vazi and many many others and now there's one of their german successors michael schumacher's brother ralph
00:29
there's michael himself second position on the grid not entirely happy with it yesterday but uh he made a brave show of it saying i'm on the front row of the grid but i said yesterday during qualifying what a wonderful thing it would be for david coulthard who has had such a terrible time recently for mclaren from mercedes-benz for britain and for germany if david got that pole position well he did exactly that the ninth of his career the first of the year he's
01:00
been driving magnificently after all he has had two second places this year he lost one of them through no fault of his own through a problem with the car when it was checked but he's also won the british grand prix and he's uh well up in the world championship just two points behind his teammate mika heckenham and 16 points behind michael schumacher so david coulthard is very much in the running from pole position for another win here
01:31
to improve his world championship position but that's one of the men who's going to be trying to stop him biker heckinen and of course not only michael schumacher in the ferrari but barry kellow rubens barrichello in the second ferrari the front row the grid the four fastest drivers the four best cars two ferraris two mclarens but let me mark your card straight away two men to watch particularly at the start ralph schumacher who is in fifth position in the on the grid
02:01
in the williams bmw behind mika heckenham and jack veal nerve in the bar you've just been hearing from martin and from vlnerv himself they're both demon starters we've seen a lot of that this year and we could be seeing it again here i think tactics are everything this afternoon murray i think that we could well see two ferraris that are going to be very active in the early part of this race i think there could be completely different strategies between mclaren and ferrari
02:32
and and how they're going to run this how they're going to try and anticipate the weather so we could see quite a strange um first few laps i think as they as they shape up because that's fine bit of adrenaline running through those crack ribs he'll be all right and hacking and certainly seemed on a mission in this morning's warm-up i don't think michael schumacher really was that disappointed with second on the grid he's on the harder tyre suits his driving style suits the balance he wanted in the car and we know them to be about two to
03:03
three tenths slower on one flying lap than the softer tire so i think he felt that front row the grip was probably just fine so michael is is right they've been changing the wings the downfall settings down on the grid they're relying a lot this afternoon on their weather forecasters and they've taken i think they've taken positions that could be quite significantly different as to how they want to run this race i agree with that entirely because only four drivers are on the harder compound bridgestone tower they've got a super soft tire here for the first time
03:34
this year and the soft tower which is actually the harder one here today is being used by both the ferrari drivers barry kellow and michael schumacher by jack veldner and i certainly know in the case of the ferraris that as martin has said it's because they just get a better balance on the car they tend to go off after about 10 laps so michael schumacher will be looking to get ahead as soon as this race begins but in order to do that he's got to pass david coulthard yes michael schumacher there look with a
04:06
virtually brand new set of tires we saw as you were talking there they ran it is that cool dodge front left yeah it looks like is ready to be thrown away before he even starts the race now that's because of the groove tyres some of the teams are finding the further they run the better the tires particularly as the track must surely be a little bit damp one problem cool that's got i was just looking at it is that just in front of him michael schumacher is charging away there but uh david coulthard has got um two black patches you saw them saw them that have been painted out it's quite a
04:37
shiny paint on top of it i think it's a little bit unfair for those on the front of the grid actually they've got to go over that whilst they're still trying to control the wheel spin but nonetheless at least he's on the grippy side of the track his teammate behind him i saw the pair of them having a good chat although they both got their helmets on at the time before they finally jumped in their cars and i think they know they've got to do a little bit of team riding before they can sort themselves out mid-race so as ever the start is going to be absolutely
05:06
vital it's uh comparatively smooth this track not as much tar wear as there is at a lot of them i'm expecting most of them to make just one stop some of them may be making two and that is the slowest corner on the course that we're looking down on now the dunlop curve but it bears repeating again that the weather you can see that heavy rain cloud above you on the left or we're moving away from it now but there are clouds all the time over the nurburgring it's just like the spa
05:39
circuit in belgium weather is totally unpredictable it could be dry bright blue skies one minute and heavy cloud pouring rain the next and that's what we expect this afternoon with an 80 certainty of rain it's one thing the drivers have got to remember and it's always difficult to come in to the pits especially if you're at the sharp end of a race and it takes about a half a minute really to come in get new tires and go but if you're say taking three laps on the wrong tires it's very easy to lose more than
06:11
30 seconds or even fall off the road very in a silly accident into the gravel trap so you really have to have the strength of mind to say right i'm going to go in i know i should be on different times even if i'm going to use them for five or seven laps it's better to use them than lose that extra time but the other situation is when you're doing i know trolling along at 150 miles an hour the little sprinkling of rain that's out there at the moment we feel walking around is streaming off of your visor and it's very difficult to judge
06:41
just how much rain is coming down until there's standing water so out of the medal chicane out of turn 13 the last on the circuit which by the way is a 2.8 mile lap david coulthard in pole position for the first time this year for the ninth time in his career there's his chief rival michael schumacher behind david coulthard there is vicar heckingham behind nickahackenan the man i told you to watch look on the right the third car back ralph schumacher
07:12
watch the line say when the fifth winning all [Applause] between the two of them is that what they were talking about is that what they were talking about and reuben's barrichello challenging so michael schumacher in second position between the two mclarens and then barry keller off goes one of the jordans and somebody is traveling along at the back it is mark gennay in the menardi who's had a very late start but unlike last year when pedro denise went off and that
07:47
is truly jano trolley who was starting about in eighth position and it looks as though he's out of the race already so it's mature and ferrari mclaren ferrari and then behind you can see them as we ride with heights harold fredson now and they're climbing up out of the dunlop curve up towards the left and right and turns eight and nine up to the big curve the sweeping right-hander that is turn ten and now then the video
08:19
server pretty well spread out as they come towards us now with nikka hacking and leading schumacher with david paul far down from first on the grid to third in the race reuben's barrack killer started fourth he is still in fourth position but in fifth position it is jack field remember what i told you he has already gained four places a magnificent start yes great start from vilna the wonder car that rocketed away was micka i was watching them they're right outside our window for the start and
08:50
coolthought got away well michael schumacher not so well but then coupon lost a bit of ground on the upshift to second hacking and just catapulted through i'm sure we'll see a replay at some time from the german producer here but i really would like to see that again but i'm absolutely sure now that uh the first four cars on the track have got complete completely different fuel loads yeah and this morning mika hakkanen was nine one thousandths of a second slower than michael schumacher's ferrari that's how
09:21
closely matched these cars are now we are on lap two out of 67 laps is this race and jonah lacy is in 14th position the man we're riding with chasing jensen button in the williams as the nerve goes through behind field nerve is ralph schumacher who has been passed by the canadian physique keller is in seventh place eddie irvine is in eighth position in the jaguar so this start and michael schumacher is
09:52
now really challenging vicar heck of them yes michael schumacher designed that corner when they change this circuit he loves that kind we've seen him win races by overtaking into that video chicane it just suits his attacking driving style completely so michael will be shaping up there whenever he gets half a chance to have a look down the inside of hakonen and he's the fastest man on the track one minute 22.6 by kosciumacker has just gone round in 1.4 seconds then the fastest lap last
10:22
year which was done by mika hakkinen and ralph schumacher is hanging on behind jack milner in the cup behind us there's field violence schumacher fizzy keller but michael schumacher is now on a charge here is the proof as they come up towards us there's jensen baden having a bad start now dropping down another place on that last lap down to 14. johnny herbert down in 18th and running last but two here's a replay of the start there's the wheel spin i can see black lines
10:53
outside my window off the grid here we go now and uh just got the absolutely perfect start from third on the grid the others are right away reasonably well look and just and just rockets through the middle we heard that frenzen has blown up somewhere around the racetrack as we're watching this replay and look at that the perfect getaway from hacking how he and michael schumacher didn't touch i'll never know and then could start having to defend what became first down to third from barack hello well let's repeat the fact
11:23
as you watch the salvo pedro denise go off the track and here is princeton retiring and his teammate fiano trolley is already out of the race well you can see what the problem is there his moog and honda engine has obviously had enough already so both jordans are out on the race and we're only on lap four now as friends and waves to his countrymen and hacking and comes towards us schumacher second coulthard third and look at the way that michael schumacher is pushing the mclaren in front of him
11:54
and i remind you michael schumacher is on the harder tire vicker hacking has got a beautiful balance on the softer bridgestone and he's definitely got the advantage at the present moment notwithstanding the fact that michael schumacher has made the fastest lap in seventh position behind ralph schumacher it's fizzy keller eighties eddie irvine ninth is dela rosa in the arrows verstappen is tenth in the second arrows and schumacher is continuing to harry harry harry push push
12:25
push get his front wing right under the rear wing of vicar hackerman's mclaren as they stall round this track now the record lap here is held by heinz harold friends and just a whisker under 130 miles an hour in the williams in 1997 different specification then but caught the cars were faster very little in it now and schumacher is continuing to push we're on lap four already yeah schumacher's got the faster car and i'm sure his game plan did not include mika hakkinen
12:57
rocketing off of third place on the grid because i think no if we're right about the fuel load on this ferrari michael schumacher really expected and needed to be uh zooming off into the distance a man probably quite content at the moment is that back there in third place if he's running a lot of fuel and i think it's a smart idea this afternoon you need as big a window as possible to give you the best chance of being needing to come in for fuel when it starts to rain so you need a it's worth carrying a bit more fuel
13:27
to widen that window if you understand me did you hear what martin said not if it starts to rain when it starts to rain because we're virtually certain that it's going to do so and the teams have been frantically revising their strategies to take account of that now vicar heckenham will be quite happy i think he's got a good balance on the softer tars he's leading the race he can take his line wherever he likes and shoeback has got to make him make a mistake before he could get past and make a heckin fly some world
13:58
champion he's not gonna do that well that's two camera angles where i've seen spots of rain on the lens so for sure it's getting a little bit damper looking out of the window no signs of umbrellas out here with the crowd at the moment but michael schumacher appears to have a much better handling car at this stage of the race the first two are stretching away slightly from the second two hacking and leads schumacher there they are and david coulthard is two seconds behind them with reuben's barrichello tucked under his wing jack neil nerve is six seconds behind
14:29
barrichello fizzy keller is right behind field in sixth position ralph schumacher is 11 seconds behind the leader in seventh place in the williams venice de la rosa and hello what's happening here off goes the salva again but this time again it is pedro and it is he does not like this circuit he treated him very badly at the start last year he's been off twice already but after last year he's a very lucky man to be alive and we've got news from louise goodman yeah i'm standing here with y'all no
14:59
truly we saw your teammate go out with an engine failure what happened to you i was i'm really disappointed because uh i had a very good start i was trying to overtake ralph on the straight and suddenly i had a from the back and probably physically i lost the control of this car and just didn't lift off and it adjusted me on the back so the car was down again it was a good start and i can't believe that you did that didn't take the team bad luck [Music] a lot of complaints yesterday in practicing about people holding other
15:34
people up but uh very very bad luck fiona truly as the leaders come through and go into their seventh lap and now michael schumacher is pushing again he's just had the fastest first sector of all this afternoon this circuit like all of them is split up into three sectors but david coulthard is now as fizzy keller attacks fizzy keller in the blue benetton is attacking jack vealner that's why you're looking at now
16:04
fighting for fifth position and behind them look at the orange arrows of petro de la rosa he's in seventh position ahead of ralph schumacher the arrows are going magnificently here they were the fastest cars of all in a straight line in spain jos verstappen and pedro de la rosa they've been going extremely well here it's a very very tidy motor car it's powered by the super tech engine pedro de la rosa is now showing after a full season of brawl free racing in his first year last year
16:35
but he is a very good driver he's got a very good car to prove it he is in seventh position yes i don't know what happened to ralph schumacher i think off screen he's had some kind of drama he's back down in eighth position so now as you riley point out murray it's physical look giving villeneuve a very very hard time with the two arrows or certainly one of them still there uh at de la rocha in seventh and that car has been going well all through the practices all right it looks as though nikki hackington is going to be able to stave off michael schumacher when are we going
17:06
to be getting pit stops well if i'm right and they're one stopping most of them it'll be round about lap 33 but could be a lot later depending on fuel load yes a new fastest lap of the race from coulthard in third place so he's clearly finding as his fueler goes down his balance is coming back to where he needs it hacking and schumacher level pegged at the front on a 122.3 now i have to say martin i'm a bit disappointed this year in comparison with expectations with
17:36
reuben's barrichello yes he was second in australia but uh and he was third in spain but he just doesn't seem to have been on it the way that michael schumacher has been we're riding with barrichello now he's in fourth position in the ferrari and he's one and a half seconds behind uh david kulfar's mclaren which is the car that you can see ahead of us and rubens just does not seem to have been able to get the balance right on the ferrari i've got absolutely no doubt that the cars have got equal specification
18:07
and there you see schumacher's ferrari you can see that he's still right up with mika hakkanen they're coming through to complete the eighth lap now in this 67 lap race hacking and lee chewbacca they are 2.2 seconds ahead of david coulthard just going over the grid now barry keller in the background is four for next man through is jack veal nerve sixth position is fizzy keller they are still virtually tied together yes another new fastest lap now this time michael schumacher but it's very very close still
18:37
a 22.2 so schumacher edging ever ever closer to and really there's not much though the first four twenty two two twenty two two twenty two four twenty two three and then they're well over a second a lot quicker than the rest of the field now it's my belief as i said earlier on that these harder cars start marginally to deteriorate in terms of performance not in terms of construction after about 10 laps well schumacher is still in that second place we're on lap nine now
19:09
and those softer ties are vicar heck and then they're going to start coming in as schumacher has a look nearly to confound me but bigger hacking the noses there he can see that scarlet blob in his right and left mirrors as the mclaren twists and turns around at this nurburgring well we've seen michael schumacher hounding hacking him before and he has not been able to force him into into a mistake maybe the hacking in the old days would have but this mika hakkanen i have to say it's very very rare you see him making unforced
19:41
errors so michael is darting around the track just trying to distract him at any possible opportunity 133 grand prix behind mikahaka and he's got a lot of experience with lotus originally here is cool file third barry kellogg fourth and salva are readying their wheels and tires for a stop now is it going to be for mikasarlo who is in 15th position or pedro that it is who is 19th and look at de la rosa in the orange arrows de la
20:12
rosa right out behind jack kneelner dela rosa is seven jackfield of his sixth and fizzy keller has moved up into fifth position in the benetton it's fast and furious behind the two batches of two which are leading this european grand prix hacking and schumacher is the first batch of two coulthard barrichello is the second and then physically you know de la rosa together yes i saw coulthard make a mistake in the first sector of this lap but there's definitely more rain coming down and uh right up the
20:44
gear but he's not in view but barack hello you're watching hacking and schumacher just behind that is uh just ahead of the sister ferrari of michael schumacher right behind him so definitely more rain coming down and uh i'm looking to see if barack hello made any um kind of move on callside in for third and fourth place now we had a formula 3000 race yesterday absolute mayhem when the rain came down this place turned into a skating rink the s felt is smooth
21:14
and these tires have got minimal grip when it gets wet and you've got to have a feather touch on the throttle 800 horsepower behind each of these drivers and they're absolutely on the ragged edge of sticking on the circuit when it's dry never mind when it's wet and you saw a confirmation of what martin said barry kellow is right up with coulthard and the ferrari is definitely working better in these tricky conditions both ferrari drivers able to put and this is how fizzy keller took vilna vilna couldn't find traction out of the v doll into the coca-cola the last turn
21:46
fizzy keller neat tidy smooth decisive right at the inside and as we know now delarosa then starts applying pressure to avilna james what can you tell us well martin now because of michael schumacher is on the heart of the two tires and we saw last year as the rain falls and you get more and more standing water they perform much worse than the super soft tires which mika hacking has on so at the moment he's doing well but uh there's more rainfalls and i can tell you it's falling more and more steadily now tremendous atmosphere here james michael's got a real run
22:17
on hacking and hacking is going to have to defend his line otherwise schumacher is going to outbreak him well that you made that too easy there might make us you had to defend that four 500 meters at 3 400 meters earlier too easy for michael schumacher no good having a look now well spotted martin beautiful beautiful drive by michael schumacher mechanics wave in delight so now it is ferrari mclaren mclaren ferrari of that yellow and red flag is to indicate
22:52
that the circuit is getting wet they'll know that they'll see these raindrops coming towards them bouncing on their visors and now remember michael schumacher is the absolute remaster of formula one one of the greatest drives i've ever seen as we see this replay of michael schumacher diving up the inside of mikahakin and who has to stay out tucking behind the ferrari as they come into the chicane and that is where michael schumacher brilliantly brilliantly passed john
23:22
lacy's ferrari years ago when schumacher was with benetton to win the european grand prix because schumacher has won this race twice already 94 and 95. so you'll see the red and yellow striped flags waving normally referred to as the oil flags but actually it's the slippery track flag and michael schumacher he may have slightly harder compound tires on but uh he is excellent in this kind of situation second guessing how much grip there's going to be in a corner before you arrive and now when they're
23:53
passing over some sections of the track now this is barrichello behind coulthard does he have a go up the inside into turn one this is a replay but i don't know the outcome i'm assuming coulthard on the better line into the corner no barrichello's gone through where's coulthard we're not showing barack hello in third place on the computer at the moment he'll have to go through the next section so maybe it's ferrari one and three mclaren two and four now well let's have a look yes it is because barry kellow has
24:22
passed david coulthard and that is a confirmation of the fact that in these weather conditions the ferraris have got the better handling now in recent years there was no doubt about the fact that the mclaren had got the faster car ferrari have been working and working and working to improve their car let's have a look and see what's happening here on this replay as off spins the arrows of pedro de la joseph steppen josh verstappen the dutchman who was
24:53
down in 14th position and that lets mick asalo in the sauber throw ahead of him look at this murray michael schumacher nearly three seconds faster on the previous lap than mika hakkanen so that's absolutely incredible they've obviously put up goes the menardi today janae and johnny herbert you'll notice last year's winner this year in the jaguar has come in for a very early stop he's decided i presume to go on to rain tars now we are on lap 13 out of 67
25:25
there you see herbert exiting it doesn't look to me as though he is on rain tires it's very difficult to tell when the wheels are rotating as quickly as they are but just look at the lead already that michael schumacher having passed mika hakken and has built up over the mclaren driver and reuben's barrichello in the second ferrari is catching heconan he was about five seconds behind him he's now three point three seconds there is hacking looking visibly to me slower than schumacher and barack hello as he rounds turn 13
25:56
followed by david kulfar yes now remember what i said at the beginning of the program that uh if you go three or four laps losing 10 12 seconds a lap then you might as well be on the other tires now they're which they're doing they're now 14 seconds off the dry pace that they started this racer maybe they should be in coming in yes they i think they should now be in getting some wet tires on but a lot of them are hanging on now is the moment for some wet tires but the problem is second guessing the weather will it stop raining and dry out immediately
26:27
i think they should now be in for wets and i'm expecting them anytime soon as de la rosa's seventh challenge here is verstappen coming in in the arrows behind him nick asalo in the sauber and behind davey coulthard who is in fourth place fizzy keller is on his own in the benetton but what a struggle behind him as off spins again at the minardi this is a replay of mark's in a jack fielder dela rosa indy irvine in the jaguar and ralph schumacher are absolutely together on the circuit
26:59
fighting for sixth position though sixth seventh eighth and ninth but four car lengths covers them as janae who has spun off and lost his front wing you see comes in for a new nose cone and wing assembly michael schumacher leads on lap 14 out of 67 53 laps to go well shumi stayed on the racetrack i mean we i can't see where the weather's coming from but uh sumi's decided to stay um he's barely on the throttle as he comes over the line let's see his lap time
27:29
it's a 41. that's 19 seconds slower it takes you 30 seconds to make a pit stop okay you've got to do another 30 seconds uh to come in and change the tires again and what was going on there ralph schumacher ralph schumacher doing the same as his brother as pedro and his spins off this is what the reign is doing in comes david coulthard from fourth position but ralph schumacher is doing like his brother he's driving magnificently in the wedge he's gone ahead of jack neil nerve up into sixth position
28:00
david coulthard goes out in uh about 7.4 seconds and of course he's got a new set of tars on lap 15 and david coulthards exits the pit lane as fizzy keller comes through still on his original tars in fifth position now this race is going to be a commentator's nightmare from now on as cars pour in and eddie irvine in the jaguar comes out behind de la rosa still i think it's going to be a commentator's dream to be honest mary because we're going to see action
28:32
all through the afternoon as these people guess second guess change their minds or whatever but certainly on those lap times they're better doing two or three laps on the wet the wet rubber can often be harder than the dry rubber but because it's got a lot more caps in it the tread moves around the blocks move around generates more heat it's a different type of compounding that gives more grip in cool conditions so we know the ferrari mechanics are out in the pit lane too i think they'll have to respond to uh yes and that is michael in
29:03
the pit lane coming through what is a very slow last corner and then over the white line at just 80 kilometers per hour he's got to hit the button and there are his team he's gotta hope he doesn't run over them as he did in spain but that was not his fault in the catalonia grand prix and uh i don't know if james is there and behind him so they come in first and second hacking and stops there he is in the background there is fizzy keller coming in so all the leaders are coming in now
29:33
and you watch shoebacker exit after 12.1 seconds that's a very long stop how does mickey hackington's time drop problem for hacking his car murray long time putting the right rear on so um hacking in quite slow away now something's coming now he'll beat that out of the pit line so i think he lost just a few seconds there while they had a slight drama and look coolstart is right up there with the michael schumacher coalfard who has stopped michael schumacher has stopped schumacher is now just ahead of davey coulthard as they come up behind
30:04
jensen button jensen button in the williams and look now michael's on his own lap he doesn't know how much grip there is coulthard's now on his first flying lap and that's why michael's having to defend quite aggressively there with uh david coulthard whose tires are that bit warmer and he's got more knowledge of the racetrack so lap 16 here is the order of the present moment as you watch schumacher and coulthard and jensen button keeping his williams in between them he's led schumacher through he's refusing to be passed by david coulthard
30:36
this is costing corporate dear in the mclaren as jensen button fights for position and to avoid being left which he has now no that's the position murray because he hasn't been in button although he's on the wrong tires button is actually in seventh place coulthard's taking that seventh place away from him but he is on wedge but it has as you pointed out cost him dearly and that will obviously be reuben's barack hello stop here he comes now he should peel into the book even a job getting in the pit lane look you can see how slippery it is it's a
31:07
long long drag into the pit lane look for the yellow line where they hit the rev limiter to slow them down to the mandatory 80 miles an hour maximum that is it now barry keller looks for his pit crew remember what happened last week the week before last in spain it's the new ferrari fella in place of nigel stepney who with his broken ankle will be watching this race he's done an immaculate job so far and that's a good stop by rubens barrichello 7.2 seconds and behind him there is
31:38
ralph schumacher that could put baracallo in the lead of this motor race i don't know i haven't seen uh schumacher and coolthought come over the start finish line uh it's uh totally upside down at the moment but i wonder if that put barack hello out in front of the race i think you're right martin it's so easy to get it wrong though i think we better be very very cautious until we see things are how things are settling down if they settle down because as i said there's cars flying in and out of the pits as the weather conditions
32:09
deteriorate it's wet out there but it's not lashing down with rain like it did last year it could well stop on this and the circuits start to dry out that is exactly what happened in the formula 3 000 race yesterday which went all topsy-turvy when the rain came down so lap 17 out of 67 50 to go we've had accident enough already and look coming towards us previous race leader michael schumacher now on a new set of bridgestone
32:39
boots behind him is mikka hackenham they exit the cicane again as alexander verts in 16th position in the pentaton goes off circuit across the grass over the saw two thrumble strip which can be very damaging indeed right uh just uh barack hello must have had some kind of problem on that in lap because he actually is some way behind so now it is schumacher coulthard and then hacking and you can see in the distance murray in third position so
33:10
it's ferrari mclaren mclaren and pedro de la rosa coming towards us in fourth position wonderful in the points it's a long time since they've been there fizzy keller is fifth button is a lot more to come but we are leaving for the moment lap 19 out of 67 what a motor race this is as michael schumacher in the ferrari leads david coulthard by seven seconds but baker hacking and the second mclaren is catching corford a fantastic battle for fourth place
33:42
between pedro de la rosa in the arrows and fizzy keller in the benetton and eddie irvine is in sixth position for jaguar in the points for jaguar just for stab and arrows said barry kello ferrari down in eighth position johnny herbert the second jaguar in the top ten he is ninth and tenth is ralph schumacher yes well without ever kind of problem barack hello had on his in lab that's put him down in eighth as you've seen and uh just coming up now to pass verstappen and verstappen may just cut across his bow there
34:14
and uh barack ella realizing that and giving him plenty of space he's gonna get better drive out of the corner and now surely the next corner is barracudas to take seventh place he's got more grip now verstappen's not gonna make it that easy for him a nice piece of driving yours so uh barakal is gonna have to work to come through the field the man who's taking it too easily he's too cautious is coulthard in second place remember murray he went off in this leading this race easily last year by pushing too hard in the wet right now i don't think he's pushing hard enough he's losing a couple of seconds a lap
34:46
to michael schumacher and hacking and is catching him about a second and a half this is fantastic motor racing sixth on the right to eddie irvine jaguar just verstappen seventh reuben's barrichello in the ferrari eighth now they are fighting each other i could hardly believe my ears after spain when i heard people complaining about the two schumacher brothers ralph in the williams and uh michael in the ferrari having a battle for position it was great motor racing and that's exactly what we're seeing
35:16
here absolutely on the limit as david coulthard is being caught and marty's told you by mikka heckin and james allen what's the news sensational atmosphere down here in the pit lane today murray just looking at the pit stops cool thought stopped for 7.4 seconds that's not a lot of fuel to go on board but i think he had quite a bit of start now schumacher stopped for 12 seconds that's enough fuel for 35 laps but he had very little fuel at the start so they're roughly on the same sort of fuel load at the moment hacking's problem was getting the wheel nut back onto the right rear tire it's cost him dear
35:47
about four seconds but on a day like today with such strange and changeable conditions it might not be the end of the world for him but obviously ferrari and mclaren both think it's going to rain now for quite a long time at least the next half an hour or 40 minutes this race is far from over and we definitely will have more pit stops and hacking and goes through passes david coulthard hackman's been laughing two seconds to lap faster than his teammate he's got the bit between his teeth now he's going for it he's back into second position david coulthard there
36:18
the pole position man goes down to third position but vicar heckin and his some 12 seconds behind race leader michael schumacher on lap 21. never caught that was looking down in the cockpit there at some point but normally he's the man in the rain he was uh he's normally absolutely flying remember manny core last year where he just scampered off into the distance and even here and look cool that i i think he knows that his teammate was much faster than him gave him plenty of space to pass him going up into turn seven so coulthard
36:50
may be carrying some kind of problem normally he is faster than that on on a wet track yeah i remember that mike david coulthard has actually got three broken ribs he's recovering from them he's a lot better than he was in spain but the fact is that he's got three broken ribs and it's a tremendously demanding situation physically that it's in now as the ferrari of michael schumacher sides its way through the field he is now up behind pedro denise who is 18th he's left in fact he's
37:22
passed pedro did his yes i think coulthard lost five seconds on the last lap marriage i think his problem is uh more than a few uh spare ribs in there that are not doing their job so uh cool thought carrying some kind of drama in the car james what can you tell us about david well what i can tell you is that the last time by david came quite close to the pit wall adrian knew he came the chief designer came off the pit ball and looked down lentil over the side of a very close look i think he was at the front wing of the mclaren to see if there's any damage
37:51
i saw him tap dave ryan sorry james that was schumacher getting it sideways carry on i saw him this is amazing isn't it very i saw him tap from dave ryan who runs school fights raise their effort on the shoulder and say it's okay cool that's car is okay well it may be okay but it's not quick enough to hold that second position we're on lap 23 now now this is going to be a replay of reuben's barrichello coming up behind pedro de la rosa and eddie irvine to try and gain track position
38:23
i've said so fights for stefan actually i apologize yeah i i said that uh barrichello has been the disappointment of this race for me so far because he is down in seventh position well he's moved up a place there and the rate order is schumacher leading hacking and as you see barry kellow diving through inside the stefan's arrows now the arrows are in eighth position and fifth position dela rosa is in the top six and the top six are michael schumacher
38:55
12.7 seconds nicker hacking 4.8 seconds david coulthard nine point three seconds fizzy keller fourth one point three seconds uh sorry six point five seconds reuben's barrichello and then eddie irvine is still there and johnny herbert is still in the top 10 for jaguar now johnny herbert is fighting to maintain his place in the jaguar team and next year he really wants a good result well of course he always wants one and last year he got one here because he
39:26
won the race in appalling conditions look at the track look at the distance between schumacher that you've seen go through and here is micka hacking and comparative lap times well hacking and he's lapping nearly two seconds faster at the present moment than schumacher this laps about the same though and uh remember michael had to pass the car on the previous lap and he got well out of shape as we saw for ourselves so i think at the end of this lap we'll see michael has done a 30.4 so the gap remains around 12.9 seconds
40:00
well interestingly in terms of the constructors contest which ferrari lead mclaren by seven points both the ferrari and the mclaren teams are on 10 points that's a replay of michael schumacher going into the chicane and nearly but not losing it michael schumacher is on a potential 10 world championship points and that would increase his lead over liquor hacking and we're going for a break [Music]
40:30
lap 26 look at this replay of michael schumacher leading the race by 16 seconds recovering from that half spin and keeping ahead of mickahacken and second david coulthard is now 25 seconds behind the race leader and being caught by fourth place and fizzy keller fifth is rubens barrichello storming his way up from eighth in the second ferrari pedro de la rosa is six for arrows in the points eddie irvine is seventh for jaguar joss verstappen
41:01
is eighth for arrows so both the arrows are in the top eight johnny herbert is now in 10th position because he's been caught and passed by ralph schumacher now jensen button is in 14th position retirements only two so far and sadly it's the two jordans jano trolley went down right at the beginning and heinz harold franson had a major engine blow out and he went out very early indeed so michael schumacher
41:31
the reign master of formula one the man who's shown us time and time again what a genius he is in the west like the spanish grand prix of barcelona like the monaco grand prix is now in a secure first position and lapping faster than the man you're looking at the twice world champion nickahacken yes the mclarens are off the pace in the wet conditions no doubt about it the man to watch is barracala who's siding his way back up the field was eighth is now fifth catching uh physically
42:02
ahead of him at one point three seconds a lap and the pair of them are catching david coulthard who is just eight seconds behind mikka hakkinen so the two mclarens have got to find some kind of pace in these tricky conditions if they want to uh keep anything near to these podium positions at the end of the day but i've seen much much worse conditions than this in the west and i'm i'm not uh belittling the conditions now but we're not getting those gigantic roosters well we are as i talk now and the ferrari goes into some pretty deep water
42:34
but uh it's it's raining steadily it is not lashing down a michael schumacher with a clear track in front of him now is laughing at about one minute 29.1 which is almost a full second fast of the mickerhakken and this is where the fact that michael schumacher is the best of the day i is very much underlined and there is you can see the arrows being chased very hard indeed by ralph schumacher's williams that's verstappen in eighth position
43:05
ralph schumacher in ninth position behind them is johnny herbert ahead of them is eddie irvine and uh we're we're hearing news that uh ralph the schumacher may be coming in ralph schumacher may be coming into the pits this is the 28th flap this is what i was talking about having enough fuel on board to have a decent window because there's nothing worse than having to come in to change your tires and then several laps later coming in again to put fuel in the car it's a double negative but often there's no way around
43:36
it unless you've run the car just ridiculously heavy in at all conditions and now with barry kelloy to fifth position and on a potential two world championship points ferrari have got potentially more points for the constructors championship here in europe than mclaren have barry kellow is doing a superb job and so is verstappen because for snapping in the orange arrows pursued by the white williams of ralph schumacher who tries to go through on the inside and has to run wide
44:07
as verstappen retains his line they're both closing up on eddie irvine and the jaguar who's holding that seventh position it's quite conceivable but here for the first time in the year two thousand first time ever we're gonna see a jaguar get a formula one world championship point fingers crossed the problem is for the driver in front until you unless you're in a very slow corner where the spray just curiously just fades down and all of a sudden you can see what's going on around you and see something in your mirrors at any
44:38
kind of speed over let's say 70 80 miles an hour you cannot see a thing behind you so if a driver takes a stab at you unexpectedly it's so easy for you just to drive in and take your normal line especially in these conditions where you're really needing maximum concentration on the the few meters of track ahead of you rather than in the driveway you're looking down the road a little bit further well 16 seconds is the gap now between the man you're watching michael schumacher he has already won three
45:09
grand prix this year there is picker hackerton who's won one schumacher of course did the hat trick got the treble the first three races in australia brazil and the san marino grand prix at imola then david coulthard won at silverstone in those uh appalling weather conditions for the people who are trying to get there although the track was dry remember that this is the first wet race we've had this year and then mickey hacking and one in spain so it's three to ferrari
45:39
2-2-2-2 mclaren so far and the world championship well and truly alive but not this race for mkhisarlow because he is out of it from 13th position his teammate pedro denis 17th now has been lapped something yellow in the gravel trap there as well but i don't think it's a piece of style i think it must be a piece of somebody else because his nose oh it's going to say it's his nose [Music] oh it's off something else early in the race but there's uh there's no way out of there in a formula
46:10
one car that's for sure mick asala with a much improved salvo this year so their usual problem is that they start well and then start to deteriorate with a lack of development but they've changed the management personnel and the technical personnel at hidden will in switzerland and things were actually looking much better for salva but not here at the moment as david coulthard in third position is seeing or will be seen soon giancarlo fissi keller in benetton
46:41
who second in brazil getting closer and closer to the mclaren there's about half a second in it that uh yellow car is matakani who has been lapped and coming towards us now there is fizzy keller and behind him reuben's barrichello now barack hillary remind you has come up from eighth to seventh from seventh to sixth from sixth to fifth and that's where he is now and he's having a go at giancarlo fizzy keller's benetton to move up into fourth position and get himself another
47:13
world championship point if he can stay there [Applause] rumors maricela of course is no slouch in the way remember how well he did at monaco as uh eddie irvine battles with just verstappen's arrows and off they go and that's irvine and chewbacca ralph schumacher out of the race ralph schumacher out of the race as he was hit now he's he's quite calmly going on having lost the wing at the back of the williams he's going to go on and go
47:47
back to the williams pit and eddie irvine is out of the race as a result of that coming together yes they both lost their rear wing but it's not like going in for a new front wing 18 19 seconds and a few bolts the rear wing is fixed much more rigidly in a more complicated way to the car and effectively this is how it all started look with verstappen defending his line uh irvine having to get out of it they just touched look irvine spinning ralph almost really just an innocent bystander and just clips the rear wing as he spins around and
48:18
you can see then johnny herbert slicing through so ralph there he probably should have seen this one coming a little bit more but eddie getting in deep verstappen we've seen that this afternoon he just simply will not yield to anybody and ralph spinning off in sympathy and losing his rear wing and that contact as we see later on made the rear wing of the jaguar of irvine also fall off and it means that johnny herbert has moved up two places he's only oh and that is uh that is joss verstappen no right front wheel that's it that's a
48:50
big crash he's had when we see a replay of that i suspect it's coming down to the v doll that may mean a safety car and i could be into safety car scenario here it's going to be very tough for michael schumacher if that is the case and i believe it will be because they will have to drag that car off the circuit with one meal wheel missing it as verstappen runs in it will mean that the hard one 17-second lead that michael schumacher currently has over hacking and let's have a look and see what happens on the replay here
49:20
as eddie irvine loses the rear wing les jaguar no down force of course so there would be no grip at the back it just spins out and into the gravel trap eddie would not have known his rear wing had gone missing here as he went into that corner he'd have been surprised as more surprised than anybody when that happened uh we just got uh no signs of any safety car so maybe they're happy to recover that car under waived yellows and uh with marshalls on the track you get waved yellows so the drivers know there are not just
49:51
machines or slow machines around or damaged cars there are actually people around too but at the moment they're covering it under the wave yellows and a wave blue flag is being given to ricardo santa in the bar in 12 position and that means there's somebody faster coming up behind you who wants to let you get out of the way and that's ever likely to be my qualities down michael schumacher is pass santa so here we are lap 32 which is just about uh getting on for half distance michael
50:23
schumacher that you're looking at with no signs of the safety car coming out to his immense relief not that he'll know about it he's 18 seconds ahead of hacking and who is 19 seconds ahead of coulthard who is seven seconds ahead of fissy keller who is has got barry keller right behind him in fifth place delarosa in the arrows is still in the points at six johnny herbert jaguar is seventh and remember he won the race last year for stewart jack theon of his eight fellaini is ninth button is in 10th position
50:54
alexander voices 11 and ricardo zoltar 12th has been left and one of those days for jensen button to hang around because he could get a point even though he's had a difficult race i think there was some kind of drama on one lap where he lost uh something around a minute and a half in the first section of one of the laps but if he hangs around he might still get a point or two this afternoon you saw a rider on the back of a scooter while murray was talking i think that was a quick shot of ralph schumacher getting a lift back to the pit he clearly decided and barack hello is through barack hello is past physically
51:25
and now he will just home in on coulthard who's clearly nursing some kind of drama because he's two to three seconds off the pace of the leaders and barracala will now just uh just zoom into the back of cool thud's mclaren and as i've said before we can surmise that david coulthard in third place has got a problem we don't know what it is ferrari or no of cour mclaren will know of course because they will be in radio contact with this is a replay as they come up to the chicane of fizzy
51:55
keller seeing barry callow dive up the inside of him the italian yields and away they go so that is the position with reuben's marichello now up into fourth place on lap 33 half distance come back soon after the break lap 35 michael schumacher is the leader and here is the ferrari pit crew waiting to get the ferrari in here is michael schumacher and here is
52:31
barrichello in the second ferrari into his pit off come the winters on go another set the fuel filler is doing his job to perfection after nigel stephanie was hurt last week and now here we are again as michael schumacher comes into the pit lane michael schumacher into the pit lane for his second stop now he's 18 seconds ahead of hacking and james allen is waiting for him yeah it's a good decision by ross points absolutely chucking it down now there's no chance of this track drying out before the end of the race
53:02
this is the fuel to take schumacher through to the end of the race nice calm relaxed pit stop by the ferrari team i think they feel they've got the day one here but there is of course still some way to go in this motor race anything can happen and i can tell you that has now gone through into the lead there he is you see there is the mclaren of vicar now look at the pit lane and wait for michael schumacher coming out of the steady 80 kilometers an hour which is what he has to do as we wait to see whether david coulthard comes through
53:32
no that was ricardo zonta in the background in the va and he is well down in 12th position too far behind what i'm finding slightly curious is that uh reuben's barack hello only stopped for seven seconds and there's a half distance to go now you use significantly less fuel in the wet maybe up to seven or eight percent less but even so i'm still surprised that barracuda wasn't stationary longer and and louise is in the pits with eddie irvine
54:04
[Applause] but not quite yet well let's have a look and see what's happening with micka hacking in the mclaren he's not as good in the weight as michael schumacher is which is not to say that he is not good but it's michael schumacher all the way at the present moment looking good but if i say that he will hit a problem he's eating away from ricardo santo he has already passed as we go back now to david coulthard in third position
54:34
but he's about 40 seconds behind michael schumacher or was before the german came in for his second pit stop so schumacher has stopped twice he's the only one of the top men who's stopped twice apart from rubens barry keller so both the ferraris have stopped and are going through to the end of the race without a further planned stop strange as it may seem your biggest enemy on an afternoon like this is not the drivers in the other cars it's those white painted lines that delineate
55:06
either side of the racetrack put a wheel on those as you go into or leave a corner and you'll be facing the wrong way sooner than you do imagine well now it's up to michael schulbecker to really go for it because hacking and is leading the race by about 20 seconds as a result of the fact that schumacher has stopped a second time and the t hacking and has not we don't know what the respective fuel loads at the start of the race were for schumacher's ferrari and hackers mclaren all that matter for
55:37
david coulthard's mclaren that we're looking at now but uh fishy keller is in fourth position behind david coulthard in your picture at the present moment pedro dalarossa is fifth reuben's barack hello as a result of his stop he's down to sixth position but he's again catching the arrows very rapidly indeed johnny herbert hovering just outside the points in the jaguar it would be poetic justice if herbert is the first man to score a world championship point for
56:08
jaguar as he was the first indeed the only man to score a world championship win for the stewart team which has metamorphic sized itself into jaguar jack theo novi's eighth jensen button is now in the top 10 at ninth position alexander woods is in tenth position there are 15 drivers still left out of the 21 who started because remember nick hyde fell to the german in his home country driving for frost was not able to start
56:38
because his car was found to be two kilos under weight at the end of qualifying an absolutely unintentional mistake and uh we're now on lap 38. now david coulthard is laughing marginally quicker at the present moment what's happening with michael schumacher he didn't pass a car on the last lap he's still got zonta behind him that's the resultant damage of verstappen's accident we still haven't seen a replay as to
57:13
how he managed to bin his car quite in that fashion but as you say coulthard actually faster than schumacher 2 at the moment so since michael changed to this set of tyres he hasn't really had a blistering pace yet [Applause] it's uh it's strange but when you change tars it can dramatically affect your performance as i've said before tars are now the only handmade thing in the turns [Music]
57:48
and as a result of that you could get marginal differences from one set of towers to another a marginal differences in the tar can make more than marginal differences to the performance of the car and the track yes and of course we know michael took on 11.8 seconds worth of fuel to see him to the end of the race but uh nonetheless it's not enough to justify this kind of lap time difference although of course the extra mass in the car to turn it accelerated and slow it down in the wet conditions it does have a more dramatic effect than in dry conditions
58:19
but sometimes strangely enough it can also settle the car down and make it handle and go better well the conventional wisdom is that you need about 20 25 seconds lead to get into your garage having slowed down take on a new set of towers and wheels and get out again still in the lead and that's about what vicar hacking has got now have mclaren got some fiendish master plan up those sleeves which is going to enable nicka hackenham to win
58:50
two races in succession but the twice world champion last year and the year before he's 25 seconds ahead on the previous lap he's coming up to complete his 39th lap now into his 40th lap and i remind you 25 seconds to the nearest one-tenth was the lead he had over michael schumacher is that increasing or not as he closes up on alexander works in 10th position to lap the benetton so hacking and lead schumacher second
59:22
coulthard third fizzy keller in the benetton catching uh david colfar just as nick a hacking and is catching his teammate fitty keller's teammate works and michael schumacher has still there he goes over the line now and the gap has increased vicar is pulling away on his lighter fuel mode from michael schumacher at uh about one and a half seconds a lap but he's got very nearly now the window that he needs to get in
59:54
change tires and wheels and get out still in the lead that's the williams pick crew all ready to receive either jensen button or just checking whether ralph schumacher is out of the race as a result of that coming together with eddie irvine in fact here are the retirements in the order of retirement as you watch fourth place busy keller at his pit stop yano trillion hi terrell fredson both out very early now the arrows goes through of pedro de la rosa to take fourth position
01:00:25
solo is out schumacher ralph is out verstappen is out and the irvine is out there is fizzy keller joining the pits pedro dolorosa has gone through there he is in fourth position so terrific drive fought by pedro de la rosa and everybody in arrows will be keeping their fingers crossed because they have yet to score a world championship point this year but to give michael hacken in track position when he makes his necessary one more stop i think he needs over half a minute do you see
01:00:56
the end of uh jensen buttons second stop of the afternoon and again full to the end of the race of course but i think mika hakken and whoops jensen calmed down a bit i think nika hakkanen needs well over half a minute half a minute to make sure he's got track position on michael schumacher michael schumacher's just take the gap back a little bit hope jenson's seen him coming and he has yeah and you probably noticed that as jensen exited the pit lane the fuel filler flap was still up that is because the new electronic
01:01:28
regulations require the fuel flap to be up and the taillight will be flashing until second gear has been engaged yes and mkhitaryan is being held up the race leader now he's led him through that has cost hacking quite a lot of very crucial time at this part of the race where as i said he needs a window to make his pit stop and get out ahead of michael schumacher he's had two very very poor laps following fizzy keller yeah he's lost it's lasted at least a couple of seconds
01:01:58
the lead of thicker hacking that you're looking at has come down from 20 seconds 27 seconds to about 25 seconds it's going to be a very close round thing that 41 67 lap race hacking elite schumacher is still third being caught by de la rosa but only at the rate of about a tenth of a second the lap barry kellow is still fifth but he's right behind dela rosa and well i certainly predict be up into fourth place again this is burt's coming in
01:02:28
from top ten and louise good so there is alexander woods ninth position when he came in jensen i think they will get that to ninth position back he was ahead of woods before he came into the pits and johnny herbert in uh seventh position in eighth position because theo nerves got ahead of him is about to be lapped by the flying finn as he calls himself vicar hacking
01:02:59
and news from louise obviously it wasn't um and then it obviously went down the the next straight so i'm surprised because normally you would notice the rear being very very light which it wasn't so um strange running strongly until then the team seemed to pull up the performance this weekend yeah we haven't been bad you know this sort of circuit suits the car it's a bit light on the rear end and then the qualifying went reasonably well i think the race was going reasonable the wet we we definitely we had to call on dry sentence which wasn't exactly ideal but um it was hard work it was
01:03:45
really hard the very end kept going all the time so i was really working hard to stay where it was cheers eddie johnny herbert eddie irvine's teammate coming into the pits from eighth position for his second stop of the day consistent rain now murray really uh not every round i don't expect a lot of standing water or aquaplaning especially online i think if they move offline you see a little bit more of that but it attracts the drains reasonably well so uh it's just a question of staying in
01:04:16
those wheel tracks the uh the cars they lose about five six miles an hour down the strength as we see and lacey coming up the inside of the and that is actually for position called tenth position there a lot down between them but uh lifting all that water up into the air the tyres are lifting bucket loads of water into the sky effectively and that takes a lot of energy a lot of power and you lose quite a lot of straight lines because of that now has got his work cut out because he's coming up to jack field who is seventh who is trying to get past
01:04:47
busy keller's blue benetton in sixth position and field there will be concentrating on getting past fissile keller not on letting hacking and through now there's very little difference between their lap times but every tenth of a second that vicar hacking and loses to michael schumacher who's 25 seconds behind him now he's going to be absolutely critical when the finn comes in for his second we presume and last pit stop because i can't believe he is not going through we're on that 43 now out of 67 so
01:05:18
fissy caliber sixth position field of seventh vicar leading the race but he's got to get past these two because he's being held up doesn't look much but he is being held up as the old nerve goes for fizzy keller and throws up an enormous amount of spray in nicker hacking space obscuring the fins visibility now it's 25 seconds between hacking and and the field nerve or was when this lap started i predict it's going to be a lot less than that at the end of this lap because
01:05:50
uh schumacher is laughing in about one minute thirty point nine the nerve is lapping in one minute thirty three point eight yes mclaren's decision to start the car's fat with fuel looks very smart at the moment but this is the stage of the race where hacking needs to be capitalizing on that while the ferraris effectively right now have a higher fuel load as the mclaren one is running down and he's gone for the inside vilne i've seen him an ex-world champion himself across vilna and enough to know what's going on around him
01:06:20
massively off the face i don't know how he's keeping third place he i think mclaren should get him in the pit maybe change his tire pressures or something give him a bit more pressure if he's aqua planing or whatever if he is struggling on the any standing water although there doesn't as i said there doesn't appear to be much to me but coulthard's struggling for that time he really should come in and have another set of tyres and i was so wrong about pedro doloroso replay of hacking and lapping of the nerve now i was so wrong about dela rosa and mary keller i said barry keller would rapidly regain the
01:06:52
fourth place he'd got by passing dolorosa after the pit stops he's not done so dela rosa from spain in the arrows is holding fourth position and then he's not only that but he's catching david coulthard at the rate of about one and a half seconds a left he's 27 seconds behind him at the present moment and reuben's barrichello is not closing the gap as hacking and goes through and passes and laps fizzy keller so there's only five people on the same
01:07:24
lap now and that is lap 45 hacking schumacher and the gap is down to 22 seconds it's it's bad news for mika hakkinen the gap is down for 22 seconds and so as a result of being held up hacking and has lost nearly three seconds coulthard is third delarosa is four barry kellow is in fifth position and those are the only five on this left yes he's lost three seconds but that's like a net six or seven because i think at this
01:07:53
stage of the race you would expect him he was until he caught that traffic pulling away now that's clearly the mclaren mechanics in the pit lane we i'd be surprised if they're going to bring nicker in unless he just has to have fuel otherwise they'd give him let him use that clear air does he come in the pit lane yes he does it is for mikka hakkanen so unfortunately for him he clears the traffic just as he has to come in for fuel he's clearly got not enough field to go any further so james is waiting for him colossal frustration down here in the mclaren
01:08:24
garage they really are upset that traffic has really messed up their race effort but to be honest he was going to need about 40 seconds anyway to get it back out ahead looking at what happened with michael when he made his stop and how much time hacking had made up on him so it's not a bad stop so far that's the fuel to the end of the race slow getaway trying to find his gear back up through james i'm sorry chewbacca has passed nickahakken into the pit lane here is michael schumacher regaining the lead there on the left is mikka hakkinen back again into second position so
01:08:56
that held up period really really did cast a nikka hacking and a lot of time well it's a new adventure now for hacking and how do these tyres feel now a little bit of extra fuel but we know both cars must have identical fuel levels give or take a kilo or two to get to the end of the road motor race as coulthard comes in two from a distant third place so coulthard in for his second stop and i expect now michael schumacher to pull away another second or two in these first two laps
01:09:27
before then we see which one of them if hacking and can close that gap down a decent stop there from coulthard that was critical can he get back out ahead of dela rosa and barack hello well here's dela rosa here they're coming on the right there is davey kaufman on the left and demarosa goes through and mary keller goes through so davey coulthard has lost two places he's gone now from third to fifth and the magnificent pedro de la rosa in the orange arrows here he is coming towards us he's up into a podium position
01:10:00
well he's got a world championship point in the past last year he got one but the possibility of him finishing uh on the podium in third position is a really really exciting one something the formula one really needs yes we didn't see dela rosa's stop to my knowledge and i don't know how long or exactly when he stopped in this race so he he is one the only one of the front runners that's had one pit stop which is entirely feasible but we'll try and look into which lap delarosa stopped
01:10:32
on yeah i was expecting when this race began you're looking at barrichello now and in full position i was expecting when this race began for most of them to stop once in fact it's just the opposite they've stopped twice there's one's for fuel and one's for tyres really but we think de la rosa stopped about lap 15 so i'm reasonably certain he will have to stop again and there's coulthard now down to fifth place and that that uh the slow lap times in the middle section of the race has cost him a podium place for
01:11:03
sure well david coulthard could regain one place if pedro dela rosa comes in which seems unlikely i don't see that david coulthard could gain two places and finish on the podium it's looking more and more so it's going to be a ferrari victory with a ferrari third place michael schumacher winning the race rumors barry callow being in third place sandwiching mika hakkinen which would help enormously michael schumacher's lead over in the drivers championship
01:11:34
and ferrari's lead over mclaren in the constructors championship but there are still 20 laps to go there the leaders are on their 47th lap now as the ferrari goes through so we've got a bit of a bit of a lull in this terrific race so uh leave us and rejoin us later lap 49 pedro de la rosa having driven magnificently in third position comes in for his second pit stop barry kellow is up into third ferraris
01:12:06
first and third sandwiching picker hacker the news from louise goodman yeah down in the areas garage i can tell you they're loving it's a well they would delay also running a very strong fall when you bear in mind that his car is fully set up for the dry condition it really puts into perspective the guys doing a great job they've been bothered monitoring the weather it didn't really really right till the end of the race but he's in five people [Applause] and hopefully he's going to keep that full position yeah he was a half asleep on his pit stop though i think it threw him they did not change his tires which
01:12:36
is a smart move they just went to fuel him as he gets lapped by uh race leader michael schumacher and dela rosa very dozy and getting away i think he probably says they probably couldn't understand why his car wasn't up in the air the team quite smartly thought the tires are not going to wear out just leave them on go for a quick splash and go and dela rosa slow away but we now know he's got enough fuel of course to the end of the races you're watching mark ginnay in from 13th position retiring from the european draw free
01:13:07
lap 50 17 to go michael schumacher leads mika hakkinen that you're looking at by 13 seconds reuben's barrichello in the second ferrari back to third position 60 seconds behind his teammate who is leading up into fourth position comes david coulthard to fifth position comes fishy color dela rosa i'm not sure whether he is down to seventh letting johnny herbert up into sixth or whether the arrows is still in the points for sixth position we'll know very shortly but behind them jensen button is
01:13:39
in eighth position ahead of alexander butz and ricardo zonta everybody up to sixth position has been lapped and there are now 17 laps to go yes the german producer is not showing is uh showing it to us at the moment but jensen patton is all over the back of johnny herbert like a bad suit and this being jensen's first wet race of course so he stayed on the black stuff so far jensen and a good scrap going on with johnny herbert and there's a 10-second stop-and-go penalty for
01:14:09
john alasey some incident that we saw we haven't seen so lacy with a 10 second stop and go and he is currently 12th well this is simple just look at it johnny herbert jensen alexander ricardo santa in respectively the jaguar the williams the benetton of the b.a.r johnny herbert holding them up a bit you've heard from martin how valiantly jensen button is trying to get ahead of his countryman johnny herbert but johnny is looking for a world championship point and he possibly needs one more than
01:14:42
anybody else in this race because as i said earlier on there have been talk there has been talk about his position in the jaguar team next year being under threat if he can get a point here as he won the race for stuart last year it would help him enormously now zonta comes in he's peeled off from the back he's coming for his second pit stop in the bar and of course that's reduced the battle that was ahead of him to three men johnny herbert and button and vote well that was pretty gormless as well he just
01:15:12
wandered into his pit he's not in the center here at all ran into his uh jackman into the jack itself i mean just wake up well you can see how the cars are slipping and sliding in these conditions just imagine being in the car an enormous noise going on behind you you're fighting for grip there's 800 horsepower being pumped out just the merest whiff of too much throttle and you can be off the circuit but we're seeing again as we have seen
01:15:43
so many times in the past how superlatively good michael schumacher is in the wet now that's the ferrari pick crew coming i wonder if they short filled barrichello's car because seven seconds in my view was not enough and what is that going on that's denise taking a zonder who's just made a pit stop for 10th place but uh i'm wondering why ferrari can really i think we know michael took 11.8 seconds of fuel i think it yes it's barracuda look
01:16:13
coming in i was right about that i just didn't think they put enough fuel in his car and this plays back into couthar's hand but he doesn't appear to have any speed to do anything about it well i'm just watching the road as you're watching ruben and barry kellow coming into the pit lane to see whether david coulthard comes through and re takes that third position he was 19 seconds behind the ferrari it's going to be mighty close but there's only just a little fuel going in and mary kellogg exits the pitch and coulthard is yet to go through there he is
01:16:44
watching what's the exit barry keller is going to come out i think david coulthard is going to get ahead of him and he's done so there he is david coulthard third position so it is ferrari leading schumacher mclaren second hacking mclaren third coulthard ferrari for barry kellow fizzy keller is fifth and pedro delarosa is still sixth ahead of johnny herman i think barack hello will be asking uh some serious questions at the end of this race to understand what on earth they were doing why didn't
01:17:15
they put a dozen seconds of fuel in his car like they did michael schumacher at the same point of the race very bizarre maybe they had a refueling rig problem or something but uh clearly they just didn't get enough fuel in that car and that crucial scope you are right but it is very strange because as we've said many many times ross braun is the master tactician in formula one seems strange that he would get it wrong but maybe there's more to it than meets the eye anyway we're on that we're on lap 53
01:17:46
now and barack hello knows he's got to really get the hammer down the gap between himself and david coulthard i would estimate at about 10 seconds i won't know until the end of this lap but it must be something like that and he's got ahead of him that's michael murray sorry about him but there's michael coming up to lap fizzy keller so barack hello is i think some way down the road from fizzy keller but he's now got a job on to uh catch coulthard barack hello i think
01:18:18
he's got the faster pace in the wet without anyone in fact there's no thinking about it he has can he get back at coulthard in the remaining laps of this race and has coup that got any kind of margin left in his pocket whatever problem he's carrying he's got to find some more speed from somewhere well michael's laughing about two seconds faster than fizzy keller we'll see hopefully how he copes with him and we see david coulthard now looking looking good for that third position which would give mclaren 10 world championship points in the constructors
01:18:49
championship if he stays where he is so that's called dad's board then look p3 14 laps to go plus 8.4 and they've read that off the same computer that we give you the information from as they've checked it out at the first sector on the lap that they're on so it's the earliest piece of information you're going to get and they're already getting uh that on the board for this is hacking and now coming up to lap de la rosa who is in sixth position and off goes on uh the other b.a.r down there
01:19:20
in the gravel strip and he's beached in the rear wheel's spinning they're off the gravel so he won't get any purchase i hope the safety car will not come out because he's judged to be in an unsafe position but it's going to be mighty difficult to remove him unless they've unless they've got a crane truck that can lift him off because they can't tow him out backwards they certainly can't tie him out forwards because they would be on the tarmac here's a replay of what happened to ricardo zogda they would have snatched the front brake on the way in run wide and tried to power his way back onto the racetrack
01:19:51
and featured it on the curve again look very very tricky position the drivers must respect the double-waved yellows they must slow down but they don't always especially in the closing stages of a grand prix how much do you slow down how much is a little bit slower that's the problem and it's so easy for another car to snatch a break and go in there and uh and that must be physic taking a shortcut that won't pay off and trying trying to catch jensen trying to get past judges
01:20:23
and failing to do so now word about button we know that he's under pressure just as johnny herbert is because uh frank williams too a lot of people surprised doesn't seem to be as enthusiastic about button as uh we thought he might be but jensen again is in a first it's his first wet formula one race and although he started well the alpaca hand out what's that mean that's nick is very clever saying look i really am slowing down i'm extra slowing down look i've even only got one hand on the steering wheel
01:20:54
quite a smart move there from he has respected the flags he does like all the drivers he does respect the job that the marshals do they risk their lives for our safety but he's he's making sure that uh the fbi the people who control the race see it without question yeah good good thinking and he was doing it of course because uh he had seen zonta's car in the gravel as we watch the ferrari of reuben's barricala now we'll see whether he's catching david coulthard
01:21:24
the gap was 8.5 seconds between barry kellow in fourth position and coulthard in third but he is catching him but but not quickly 8.3 seconds as we leave the nurburgring that's just a quick replay there over hacking and uh just demonstrating to he's not really talking to the marshals on the corner he's talking to the stewards of the race who are watching this on tv now we'll go to the break back very shortly 10 laps to go our ferrari gonna make it their fourth win
01:21:57
of the year and even more interestingly from their point of view are they gonna have third place as well it looks as though the former is yes it looks as though the latter is no michael schumacher leads him by a decreasing margin of 7.6 seconds with david coulthard being caught by barry kellow but not fast enough lacy keller is fifth and dela rosa is six i had to disagree with you murray but i think barack hello is plenty fast enough to catch david coulthard at the moment but
01:22:28
amazingly barracuda is about to be lapped by his teammate and we're at this level of the game that is the ultimate ultimate embarrassment even though clearly whoever decided barack hello strategy uh it's definitely not helped him on the afternoon with that extra pit stop but barack hello about to be lacked by teammate michael schumacher and that gives you a pretty good indication of just how well schumacher and hacking have been going this afternoon in these treacherous conditions because they're lapping for the fourth place man
01:22:58
you may be surprised to have seen pedro denise move over and let verts through when they're running next to each other in position but what's fizzy keller going through now he's in fifth position and now hacking goes through and laps again the salva of pedro deniz so giancarlo fisicala has been lacked here is sticker hacking and storming up behind him on the 58th lap out of 67. this has been a terrible lap for mecca
01:23:29
he's lost over two seconds passing those uh passing the sauber on this lap to michael schumacher and this is why look you have to hover you can't just drill it in there just in case he turns in on you you've got to be more positive if you're letting somebody through and give them more than a car and a half to go and michael has now lapped barack hello that's not going to help barack hello's cause much unless michael can uh also lap coulthard and hold him up in some way which is uh more than he's more than capable of doing and understanding
01:24:00
but he's only 10 seconds ahead of mikka hackenan so he hasn't got that much of a comfort zone i remember once when michael schumacher actually backed off as he was winning a race to help his brother who was thin jar driving for the jordan team no question of that of course at this race when michael heckenham is treading so comparatively closely on his heels watched by ron dennis in the on the mclaren pit lane position this happened to me in hungary when i was driving for mclaren i was running
01:24:29
third and i let michael uh ease past me trying to hide my problems but he spotted that uh i've got a problem backed off and he made me unlock myself and then his teammate overtook my stricken cut on the very last lap and invented me off the podium that was verstappen as it happened when they were both at benatar so michael is very good at thinking about what's going on around him yeah people think that you just jump in the racing car and go absolutely of your potential and your thinking
01:25:03
thinking thinking all the time and the actual racing actions are if not automatic getting getting that way when you're at the level of people like schumacher ralph and michael and mika hakkinen are at so we're into the 60s now lap 16 out of 67 and if this race concludes the way it is now and barrichello is continuing as martin's rightly pointed out to close up on david coulthard not
01:25:34
terribly quickly but he is getting closer all the time it's going to be ferrari's first and fourth but it might be ferrari first and third yes curiously lost a lot of time on the last lap being uh lapped by his teammates and that didn't help his cause very much and definitely played into david cooper's hands but barack hello still has got the speed but he's going to be somewhat deflated seeing another scarlet carp whiz past him so let's assume that michael schumacher wins at this race he's whoa that's the one that's the right
01:26:04
line i was telling you about [Applause] or the ferrari teams strategy i think it's a combination of everything but i think michael has been pretty supreme this afternoon these strategies have been different but i don't think there's been much of an advantage they both pitted roughly the same time for wets and uh refueling etc etc so you have to say on the afternoon michael has made a better fist a bit i think right from the beginning as soon as you started to spit the rain it was clear to see the ferrari was better suited to the
01:26:44
tricky conditions well it's going to be mighty close for third position because barry keller has nipped another second out of david coulthard's lead over it david coulthard is third and barry keller's got the gap down now to six seconds with six laps to go including the one they're on very very interesting because to get to michael schumacher hakonen has got to laugh schumacher's teammate and to keep i mean hacking is really homing in on schumacher at the moment to keep
01:27:14
hacking in a way he's got to leapfrog hacking in his teammate to lap him so coolthorne might come into play in this race yet and uh also barack hello can do a pretty good job of spoiling uh of spoiling mkhitaryan's race either which way i think it could play into coughlin's hands and uh we could see a little bit of argi bhaji with people unintentionally in inverted commerce holding other people up what we don't know of course is to what extent if any michael schumacher has got something in
01:27:45
reserve he knows that is closing up on him he's in touch with his team by radio he'll be getting pit boards what he's now got in reserve is reuben's barrichello as rear gunner so uh ferrari may have pulled barack hello into that position and uh michael schumacher may not even have to risk passing david caulford so lap 61 the race order schumacher hackerton coulthard the remaining three in the points romans barrichello is now 5.3 seconds behind coulthard
01:28:16
fizzy keller in the benetton looking good for another points finish pedro de la rosa keeping his fingers crossed for the first point four arrows of this season johnny herbert is seventh and there he is followed by jensen buttons williams eighth and alexander voices bennett on ninth david coulthard's about to catch this little gaggle having a squabble so uh coulthard now who's still really under pressure he's got schumacher homing up behind him to lap him barack hello just behind that now just
01:28:47
5.3 seconds of drift how david coulthard is in third position this afternoon i'll never know with the uh whatever his problems are whatever the reason uh his lack of pace but uh he's he's gonna have to work out to defend that look good now has michael schumacher the race leader behind him so lap 62 and if anybody in the first six goes out of this race the car that you're looking at in the lead here seventh place johnny herbert is and here is the ferrari two thousand yields
01:29:20
coulthard had to yield so uh blue flags are waving wave blue flags for car 2 it says on the computer so he'd obviously passed at least four of them and he had to yield otherwise he'll be given a stop go penalty so through to complete the lap goes michael schumacher he's into his 63rd lap now as the johnny herbert jaguar williams bird's benetton battle continues being caught by michael schumacher yes this is called yielding he has to do that to let the
01:29:50
race leader through he has been lapped now barack hello just 2.3 seconds behind third place man coulthard hacking and just 5.9 behind race leader michael schumacher but we know he's got to clear his own teammate and michael t michael's teammate to get to him and michael schumacher passes towards his benetton so he's passing these people which hacking and behind him has then got to pass so lap 63 just four laps to go at the end of this one
01:30:21
michael schumacher keeping on the field is on the tarmac in spite of these appalling missed clouds in front of him and jensen button now is he going to turn across yes he does michael schumacher backs off very sensibly about season holds the ferrari back this is a look at hacking them so and coulthard in the mclaren it's mighty close and there's only four laps to go and there is uh just two people on the same lap at the present moment michael schumacher and his finnish rival
01:30:53
vicar hacking and in second place and jensen button lost out badly there he's lost a place to vert so he goes down into ninth but look look at barack hello trying to get out the inside of coolstart they're both being held up by the scrap that's going on another further lap they're they're laughing they're already lapped down themselves the other people getting in the way are two laps down but coulthard got a reasonable run out of the corner where is barrichello in that spray still behind him look yeah remember spain remember the way that rubens barrichello
01:31:24
nipped past the schumacher brothers but then he had michael helping him by holding ralph out and bear the ferrari flying past that's michael schumacher in the lead flying past johnny herbert to lap the jaguar in the seventh position so keep this order in your mind schumacher leading hacking and they're virtually together on the track itself even the camera can't see hardly now looks do get penetrated with water you start pairing through
01:32:02
little holes in the end trying to just pick out the curbs and breaking for michael but dangerously close to the edge of the track again but the vital thing is that michael schumacher has now cleared the people he was laughing and has got an open track in front of him he can see where he is going he's on his 64th lap he's got three laps to go at the end of this to make it the fourth ferrari win of the year 2000 as alexander woods comes up behind johnny herbert's jaguar and has a go but trying to improve his
01:32:34
reputation this year yes and uh coulthard slow out of the veto they're going to touch surely oh off they go that's tragic for johnny herbert but he's kept it on the island brilliant now has he got the engine running but that's cost verts his place but it may be that uh a jensen button now where is he well there is david coulthard with barry keller right behind him they are third and fourth but we need to look back down the field a bit words is out of the race yes so um
01:33:05
that actually cleared the way a bit for coulthard but uh i i think barack hello is much quicker under breaking and surely he's going to nail david down into the v doll later in this lap dave is going to have to keep to the inside and make her this is a replay of barack hello trying to know in fact the camera then cuts away look you're just always going to run wide and uh well i think johnny must have known the laws of physics there that the benetton was surely he should are going to come towards the outside of the corner should have given him a little bit more space well it uh it
01:33:36
actually hasn't helped johnny herman because he is still not in the top six as a disconsolate uh alexander vert walks in to make an explanation notice he's got one blue boot and one red boot that's his good luck symbol hasn't done him much good in this race michael schumacher on lap 65 10 seconds now ahead of mkhitaryan as a result of weaving his way through the traffic better than the fifth is looking very very good indeed for his
01:34:06
fourth win of the year button is out of the race i can see on the computer carten has stopped so jensen button is out of this race and look there is the dice for third place as they go over the line so barracado can't find a way through the spray he didn't find a way of the inside individual and coulthard has to somehow hang on for one more crucial for david while he's uh struggling with his injuries or whatever he's got to carry he needs to maximize his points in this race he cannot afford to yield that place to rubens
01:34:37
barrichello well david's head of first he's had three thirds one of which was disallowed he's had a third he's driven magnificently this season he's third in the world championship if he can stay ahead of romance barrichello on this final lap it's going to help him on this last left for one it's going to help him as the ferrari technicians look anxiously at their monitors and michael schumacher is on his 66th and last a lap about to one that was in the ferrari now the next car up
01:35:08
will be mika hakkinen's mclaren there it is and david coulthard and behind him is rubens barrichello so barack hello i think his best chance is at the next corner after this so if he's got hacking has given up hacking and satisfied with second place he's now 13 seconds he realizes he's not going to leapfrog those two in the time available and uh barack hello just nowhere near close enough even though he's much stronger on the brakes into this video so now coulthard knows where his strengths and weaknesses
01:35:38
are barracala's got better traction we've seen him overtake cars out of this chicane all afternoon but coulthard knows he's got to have just enough distance into vidol and he's guaranteed then this podium position but now can varakala get a run up there's a lot of grip up to the inside of turn one in the rain here it is amazing how late and deep you can go on the brakes barracado i expected him to pop out of the spray but he just couldn't do so strong engine there in culford's car barracado driving absolutely blind and total faith
01:36:09
in the car in front well these two are not going to go the full race distance only michael schumacher who is now on his last lap and mika hakkanen are going to do that but it certainly looks like being ferrari mclaren mclaren ferrari because look on this last lap for him david coulthard is staying ahead of reuben's barrichello as they exit turn five on this 13 turn corner track
01:36:40
and michael schumacher comes out of turn eight with the german horns the air horns blowing the flags are waving shumi is their hero and you can see ferrari flags all around the track a magnificent if he gets there and he hasn't got far to go the ferrari mechanics already crowding the pit lane and michael schumacher is coming in to win his fourth race of the year to extend his world championship lead over mkhitaryan by a
01:37:09
further four points from 14 points to 18 points schumacher wins in germany cool thought i think is going to maintain the third he took a second somewhere out of barakallahu and there's third barracado fourth and uh curiously second place man coming over the line now nearly a lap ahead so a hacking and a slightly disconsolate cruise over the line great drive from michael schumacher and with pedro de la rosa in sixth position in the arrows behind
01:37:42
fizzy keller in fifth place it needs to say that arrows magnificently in their newly liveried bright orange motor car have finished in the points for the first time this year to give pedro dela rosa his second world championship point in his second year of grand prix racing a very very happy ferrari team well mclaren have got 10 world championship points to ferrari's 13 it could have been worse
01:38:15
but the fact remains that the gap in both championships between schumacher and the drivers and ferrari and mclaren and the constructors has increased in fact now michael schumacher is on 46 world championship points to nikka hackernuts 28. david coulthard is still third reuben's barry kellow is in fourth place as he was before ralph schumacher is still fifth and fizzy keller is still in tenth position well uh as ever in grand prix racing
01:38:48
in formula one a wet race particularly one that starts off dry and becomes wet all the other way around has turned out to be immensely exciting and dramatic and it really does look as though the tide after all these years has turned for ferrari led by the little man that you see walking into the ferrari garage john the frenchman who recruited ross brawl the englishman rory byrne the south african michael schumacher the german to help him bring ferrari back to the
01:39:20
front and he's certainly done it here important day for ferrari because clearly mclaren were gathering face and coming back back at them with uh some energy after those dominant three wins by michael in the first three races and ferrari today have nailed that they've stopped that march and i think it was a very significant day in this year's world championship yes and the thing is that in recent years ferrari has started off the season not as well as mclaren but have closed the gap as the season went on
01:39:52
this year it's been just the reverse they started off tremendously strongly with those three successive victories then lost the next two races to david coulthard for mclaren and vicar heckin and for mclaren and have now won the six there's 17 races in the series we've got a new race in america the 15th race of the year in the third week of september and it looks as though the championship is going to get more and more exciting because mclaren at working
01:40:21
with mercedes-benz power will not give up led by ron dennis they've got years and years of experience and they know that the championship is never over until it's over michael schumacher giving his distinctive pumping action from his two fists and mika hakken and draws alongside him mccarron now um ferrari are now on 62 world championship points to mclaren's 52 so they've extended their constructors championship lead by
01:40:54
four points with williams still holding on in third place when mika hakkanen watches a replay of this race he's going to be disappointed and looking the other way when he sees how michael schumacher overtook him earlier in the race i think he's going to be very disappointed with himself did he yielded he allowed he gave michael so much space and that was a critical point there because then it allowed michael to get off and build a lead and mecca really will not enjoy that moment on the video
01:41:24
well just a statistical point but it is of some real significance in winning this world championship race and getting 10 world championship points michael schumacher has moved up ahead of the late great anton cena for the second highest world championship points scorer of all time he now has 618 points and has been bested so far only by four times world champion alain frost who is here to see
01:41:55
his prost team driver the only one jonah lazy finish in ninth position with nick heidfeld not being allowed to start the race due to his carving and the weight at the end of qualifying so the results of the european grand prix at the nurburgring a ferrari triumph michael schumacher wins from the two mclarens of micah hackenan and david coulthard and his teammate romans barack hello fourth giancarlo fizzy keller for benetton has got two world championship points for fifth place
01:42:26
de la rosa a magnificent single point their first this year for arrows pedro denis in seventh place for sauber gaston matsukane the argentine driver in eighth position for menardi ahead of sean alecci jensen button he's going to be classified 10th although he's five laps down johnny herbert will be classified 11th after his retirement and alexander votes 12th and then all the rest have retired particularly notably and very sadly for what's
01:42:58
turning out not to be a good season for them the two jordans of yano truly and heights harold fredson jordan were third in the constructors championship last year they're down in fifth position this year and they're some 53 points behind ferrari not at all a happy germany for eddie jordan and his team well they are the photographers crowding out onto the circuit now waiting to see the
01:43:30
three top men schumacher hacking and coulthard and let us remember that david coulthard for the second race in succession has been driving carrying a very unpleasant and painful injury that is to say three cracked ribs you need to be very very fit and as well as being gigantically determined to be a grand prix driver and he's certainly every bit of that 21 starters nine finishes and two had insulted injury
01:44:00
they're now going to stand on the podium and get even more wet but i don't think they'll mind too much i think uh shumi's gonna be the happiest man up there hacking and he's gonna be disappointed to lose more ground to michael schumacher and that's mrs michael schumacher we're looking at now uh coulthard i think he'll be amazingly relieved and surprised to end up in third place in this grand prix karina schumacher there are two little shoemakers at home in switzerland where the gigantically wealthy
01:44:31
michael schumacher lives for all sorts of reasons not the lisa which i suspect is that it helps him from a taxation point of view nothing wrong with that michael schumacher then in the background in a slow motion with the fist up that distinctive and familiar sign that we have seen in the past and yet another victory to his tally that's his 39th grand prix win he's been on the podium 76 times in his 132 grand prix
01:45:03
he's been on the podium for well over half the races in which he has competed one race for jordan then for benetton where he was a double world champion and now for ferrari is he going to be this year's world champion he could be michael schumacher the distinctive schumacher leap looking as ever delighted and in germany the german national anthem [Music] [Music] [Music]
01:46:13
[Music] so a german driver won the race an italian car won the race ferrari italy [Music] [Music] shhh [Music] an understandably delighted michael
01:47:35
schumacher from germany wins the european grand prix in germany and will receive his trophy appropriately from the chancellor of the federal republic of germany gerhard schroeder and mr romano proddy yeah which is uh interesting and obviously a bit of a healing of the ways between formula one and the european commission but michael schumacher i think more delighted on the podium than i've ever seen him before with uh with very good reason too
01:48:06
because he feels that this is his year again after working so hard for ferrari since 1996 and uh that's michael schumacher's engineer rightly receiving the constructors trophy davey coulthard looking as though he's in a bit uh michael that's nick lifting his trophy and uh david david coulthard looking a bit one and well understandably as he contains his chest
01:48:37
must be very painful indeed so a great european grand prix david coulthard rightly kept well away from the champagne festivities in the past race or two uh but he's getting in there this year and that is good to see so ferrari win schumacher win but mclaren are still
