The 1999 Italian Grand Prix was a Formula One race held on September 12, 1999 at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza near Monza, Italy. It was the thirteenth race of the 1999 Formula One season.

As a close championship moved towards its conclusion, Mika Häkkinen snapped, spinning off and stalling while comfortably leading the race, and in a rare show of emotion from the Finn, burst into tears at the side of the road. Asked about it afterwards he replied: 'Real men don't cry'. The victory was inherited by Jordan's Heinz Harald Frentzen; it would prove to be the only race the team ever won in dry conditions.

Frentzen held off a superb drive from Ralf Schumacher in the less powerful Williams with Mika Salo giving the home crowd some cheer with 3rd place, Eddie Irvine only managed 6th.
