2000 Austrian Grand Prix

The 2000 Austrian Grand Prix (formally the XXIV Großer A1 Preis von Österreich) was a Formula One motor race held on 16 July 2000 at the A1-Ring near Spielberg, Styria, Austria with 85,112 spectators in attendance. It was the tenth round of the 2000 Formula One World Championship and the 24th Austrian Grand Prix. McLaren driver Mika Häkkinen won the 71-lap race from pole position. His teammate David Coulthard finished second with Rubens Barrichello third for the Ferrari team.

Michael Schumacher led the World Drivers' Championship with his team Ferrari ahead of McLaren in the World Constructors' Championship going into the race. He started from fourth position alongside his teammate Barrichello. At the first corner BAR's Ricardo Zonta ran into the rear of Michael Schumacher as five other drivers were involved in incidents during the first lap. The accident meant Michael Schumacher retired from the race and the deployment of the safety car. After the safety car was withdrawn after one lap Häkkinen and Coulthard drew clear from the rest of the field. When Häkkinen made his pit stop on lap 38, he rejoined behind Coulthard, but in front of Barrichello. Coulthard made a pit stop on lap 43, returning Häkkinen to the lead which he maintained for the rest of the race to achieve his second victory of the 2000 season and the 16th of his Formula One career.

As a consequence of the Grand Prix, Coulthard finishing second saw him narrow the gap to Michael Schumacher in the World Drivers' Championship to six points, while Häkkinen's win meant he closed to within two points of his teammate Coulthard. After the Grand Prix, McLaren were deducted 10 points for a post-race technical infringement, resulting in Ferrari maintaining their lead in the World Constructors' Championship by four points over McLaren, with seven races of the season left.
