2000 Hungarian Grand Prix

The 2000 Hungarian Grand Prix (formally the XVI Marlboro Magyar Nagydíj) was a Formula One motor race held on 13 August 2000 at Hungaroring, near Budapest, Hungary. It was the twelfth race of the 2000 Formula One season and the 18th Hungarian Grand Prix. The 77-lap race was won by McLaren driver Mika Häkkinen after starting from third position. Michael Schumacher finished second in a Ferrari with Häkkinen's teammate David Coulthard third.

Michael Schumacher started alongside Coulthard on the front row of the grid. Going into the first corner, Häkkinen accelerated faster than Michael Schumacher and Coulthard off the line and overtook both drivers for the lead. He managed to maintain his lead until his first pit stop on lap 31. As his teammate Coulthard made his pit stop one lap later, Häkkinen regained the lead which he held to win his third win of the season. Michael Schumacher fended off Coulthard, who challenged him in the later stages despite losing time lapping backmarkers, to take second.

Häkkinen's victory promoted him into the lead of the Drivers' Championship for the first time in the 2000 season, two points ahead of Michael Schumacher and six ahead of Coulthard. Häkkinen and Coulthard's strong finishes promoted McLaren into the lead of the Constructors' Championship, one point ahead of Ferrari and 88 ahead of Williams with five races of the season remaining.
