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 the Hungaroring, in Mogyoród, Pest, Hungary with a crowd of 120,000 spectators in attendance. It was the twelfth race of the 2000 FIA Formula One World Championship and the 18th Hungarian Grand Prix. Mika Häkkinen, driving a McLaren-Mercedes, won the 77-lap race starting from third position. Michael Schumacher finished second in a Ferrari, having started from pole position by setting the fastest overall lap time in the one-hour qualifying session, with Häkkinen's teammate David Coulthard third.

Before the event, Michael Schumacher was leading the World Drivers' Championship from Häkkinen while Ferrari were ahead of McLaren in the World Constructors' Championship. Häkkinen beat Schumacher and Coulthard off the start line and went on to lead every lap, except for the first round of pit stops. The Finn's eventual margin of victory was eight seconds, with Schumacher holding off Coulthard for second. The win, Häkkinen's third of the season and the 17th of his Formula One career, gave him the lead of the World Drivers' Championship for the first time in 2000, two points ahead of Schumacher and six ahead of Coulthard, while McLaren took the lead of the World Constructors' Championship by one point from Ferrari with five races remaining in the season.
