2000 German Grand Prix

The 2000 German Grand Prix (formally the LXII Großer Mobil 1 Preis von Deutschland) was a Formula One motor race held on 30 July 2000 at the Hockenheimring near Hockenheim, Germany. It was the eleventh round of the 2000 Formula One season and the 62nd German Grand Prix. The 45-lap race was won by Ferrari driver Rubens Barrichello after starting from 18th position. Mika Häkkinen finished second for the McLaren team with teammate David Coulthard third.

Coulthard started from pole position alongside Michael Schumacher. Coulthard's teammate Häkkinen began from third. At the first corner Michael Schumacher moved to the left and Giancarlo Fisichella collided with him and both drivers retired. Häkkinen took the lead of the race which he held until an intruder penetrated circuit limits on lap 25 causing drivers to make pit stops under safety car conditions. Barrichello, meanwhile, had gained thirteen positions to run fifth until the first safety car period. Häkkinen retook the lead after Coulthard pitted on lap 27. Barrichello stayed out on dry slick tyres, taking the lead which he held to clinch the first victory of his Formula One career.

Barrichello's victory was considered popular amongst the Formula One paddock as it came after a setback during his career. The race result meant Häkkinen and Coulthard were tied for second place but the points advantage to Michael Schumacher was reduced to two points. Barrichello remained a further eight points behind the McLaren drivers. In the Constructors' Championship McLaren remained four points behind the Ferraris, who were 80 points ahead of Williams with six races of the season remaining. The track intruder, named as 47-year-old Frenchman Robert Sehli, later apologised for his actions and was fined by the track's management.
