2000 United States Grand Prix

The 2000 United States Grand Prix (formally the XXIX SAP United States Grand Prix) was a Formula One motor race held on 24 September 2000 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Indiana. It was the fifteenth race of the 2000 Formula One season and the 34th United States Grand Prix. The 73-lap race was won by Ferrari driver Michael Schumacher after starting from pole position. His teammate Rubens Barrichello finished second with Jordan driver Heinz-Harald Frentzen third.

McLaren driver David Coulthard started second, alongside Michael Schumacher. However, Coulthard was forced to serve a ten-second stop-go penalty on lap eight because he moved forward into the lead before the start. Michael Schumacher's main rival in the championship, Mika Häkkinen, started from fourth but retired with an blown engine on lap 26. Michael Schumacher thus had an unchallenged lead and was able to clinch his seventh win of the season, despite a spin in the final stages of the race.

As a consequence of the race, Michael Schumacher retook the lead in the Drivers' Championship by eight points over Häkkinen. Coulthard's fifth place in the Grand Prix eliminated his hopes of winning the Championship, and reduced his lead over fourth-placed Barrichello to eight points. In the Constructors' Championship, Ferrari took over the lead held by McLaren and established a ten-point advantage, with two races of the season remaining.
