2001 British Grand Prix

The 2001 British Grand Prix (formally the LIV Foster's British Grand Prix) was a Formula One motor race held on 15 July 2001 at Silverstone in Northamptonshire, England. It was the eleventh race of the 2001 Formula One season. The 60-lap race was won by Finnish driver Mika Häkkinen for the McLaren – Mercedes team, who managed to overtake the driver in pole position, Michael Schumacher. Schumacher, driving for Ferrari, finished in second behind Häkkinen, whilst team-mate Rubens Barrichello gained the final spot on the podium. It was Häkkinen's first victory of the season.

The race saw five drivers retire, as Jarno Trulli's Jordan collided with David Coulthard's McLaren in the first corner; Jacques Villeneuve's BAR pushed his team-mate Olivier Panis off the track at the start, forcing Panis to retire; Ralf Schumacher and Luciano Burti also failed to finish the race. Tarso Marques also became the first DNQ of the season, as his Minardi could not make the 107% cut. It was Heinz-Harald Frentzen's last race for the Jordan team as he was sacked by that team after this race following a disappointing season and forced to sit out for the next race, the 2001 German Grand Prix.
