2000 Malaysian Grand Prix

The 2000 Malaysian Grand Prix (formally the II Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix) was a Formula One motor race held on 22 October 2000 at the Sepang International Circuit, in Sepang. It was the 17th and final race of the 2000 Formula One season, and the second Malaysian Grand Prix. The 56-lap race was won by Ferrari driver Michael Schumacher after starting from pole position. David Coulthard finished second for the McLaren team with Michael Schumacher's teammate Rubens Barrichello third.

Mika Häkkinen, driving for McLaren, started from second position alongside Michael Schumacher. However, Häkkinen was forced to serve a ten-second stop-and-go penalty because he was judged to have jumped the start. Häkkinen climbed back up to fourth place, his final finishing position. Coulthard, who started third, moved into the lead until the first round of pit stops. Michael Schumacher and teammate Barrichello traded the leading during their second stops with the former retaining the lead. Michael Schumacher held off a challenge from Coulthard in the closing stages of the Grand Prix to secure victory.

Michael Schumacher's win was his ninth of the season, matching the record set by himself in 1995, and Nigel Mansell in 1992. Schumacher also tied Mansell's record of 108 points. Ferrari was confirmed as Constructors' Champions as McLaren could not pass its points total in the final race. Coulthard's second-place finish helped to secure him third position in the World Drivers' Championship. The Grand Prix was Pedro Diniz and Johnny Herbert's final race; the Englishman retired after 160 race starts.
