1999 Austrian Grand Prix

The 1999 Austrian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held on 25 July 1999 at the A1-Ring in Spielberg, Austria. It was the ninth race of the 1999 Formula One season.

After Michael Schumacher broke his leg in the previous race at Silverstone, Ferrari's title attention turned to his team-mate Eddie Irvine. David Coulthard nudged team-mate Mika Häkkinen off the track on the first lap, pushing Häkkinen to the back. When Coulthard failed to hold off Irvine during the sole round of pitstops, the man from Northern Ireland wrapped up his 2nd Formula One win. Häkkinen fought through the field to finish 3rd.

Mika Salo substituted for Michael Schumacher. Pedro Diniz scored his last ever world championship points at this race.
