2001 German Grand Prix

The 2001 German Grand Prix (formally the LXIII Großer Mobil 1 Preis von Deutschland) was a Formula One motor race held on 29 July 2001 at the Hockenheimring, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It was the twelfth round of the 2001 Formula One season and the 63rd German Grand Prix. The 45-lap race was won by Williams driver Ralf Schumacher after starting from the second position. Rubens Barrichello finished second for Ferrari with BAR driver Jacques Villeneuve third scoring his last F1 podium finish.

Juan Pablo Montoya started from pole position alongside Ralf Schumacher. Michael Schumacher, the eventual Drivers' Champion started fourth, behind Mika Häkkinen of McLaren. The race was marked by an airborne accident going into the first corner involving Michael Schumacher and Luciano Burti for Prost, which caused the track to be scattered with shreds of carbon fibre and the race restarted as a result. Both Williams drivers retained their positions at the end of the first lap, with Michael Schumacher passing Häkkinen for third. Over the course of the race, Montoya extended a considerable lead over Ralf Schumacher. Montoya lost the lead on lap 24 when an issue with a refulling rig caused him to be stationary for more than 20 seconds. Ralf Schumacher thus inherited the lead and held it to win his third victory of the season.

As a consequence of the race, Michael Schumacher retained his points advantage in the Drivers' Championship over nearest rival David Coulthard as both drivers retired from the event. Ralf Schumacher moved ahead of Barrichello to take over third position. In the Constructors' Championship, Ferrari retained their lead, while Williams reduced the deficit to McLaren by ten points, with five races of the season remaining. This was the last Grand Prix to be held on the former Hockenheimring circuit; the race was held on a shorter reconfigured track from 2002.
