2000 FIA Formula One World Championship season

Index: Races by country | Races by season
Michael Schumacher won his third title, his first for Ferrari, in 2000.
Defending double world champion Mika Häkkinen finished runner-up.
Häkkinen's team-mate, David Coulthard (pictured in 2007), finished the season ranked third.

The 2000 Formula One season was the 51st FIA Formula One World Championship season. It commenced on March 12, 2000, and ended on October 22 after seventeen races. Michael Schumacher became Ferrari's first World Drivers Champion for 21 years. Schumacher clinched the drivers' title at the penultimate race of the season, the Japanese Grand Prix. Ferrari also successfully defended their constructors' title.

The season was marred by one death: a race marshal was killed at the 2000 Italian Grand Prix at Monza. The two Jordans collided on the approach to the Variante della Roggia chicane and slid into the cars ahead of them. The marshal was struck by a loose tyre from one of the Jordans.[1] Michael Schumacher considered quitting the sport as this was the first death in F1 since driver Ayrton Senna's in 1994.[2]

Notes

  • To keep costs down, the V10 engine configuration was made mandatory in 2000 so that engine builders would not develop and experiment with other configurations.[3] The V10 configuration had been the most popular since the banning of turbocharged engines in 1989, and no other configuration had been used since 1998.
  • This season held the record for least number of drivers competing in a single season with only 1 driver change (Luciano Burti in Austria) putting the total at 23. This record stood until 2008, where there were no driver changes.

The 2000 Formula One season was the 51st season of FIA Formula One motor racing. It featured the 2000 FIA Formula One World Championship which commenced on March 12, 2000, and ended on October 22 after seventeen races. Michael Schumacher became Ferrari's first World Drivers Champion for 21 years having clinched the drivers' title at the penultimate race of the season, the Japanese Grand Prix. Ferrari successfully defended their Constructors' title.

The season was marred by one death: a race marshal, Paolo Ghislimberti, was killed at the 2000 Italian Grand Prix at Monza. The two Jordans collided on the approach to the Variante della Roggia chicane and slid into the cars ahead of them. The marshal was struck by a loose tyre from one of the Jordans.[1] Michael Schumacher considered quitting the sport as this was the first death in F1 since driver Ayrton Senna's in 1994.[2]

Reports

Into the new F1 Season of the new century, the main changes among the top teams was that last year's title contender Eddie Irvine was replaced by Rubens Barrichello for Ferrari and, in Jordan, former world champion Damon Hill had retired, and was replaced by Jarno Trulli.

The first race of the season was in Australia, and the top 5 was exactly similar to last year. The McLaren pair of world champion Mika Häkkinen and David Coulthard started 1-2 ahead of the Ferrari pair of Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello. The Jordans of Heinz-Harald Frentzen and Jarno Trulli were fifth and sixth. During the race, the McLarens kept their positions at the start, while Barrichello lost out to Frentzen. The McLarens pulled away from Schumacher, but on lap 10, Coulthard retired with a misfire. Häkkinen's engine blew up nine laps later, giving the lead to Schumacher. Neither Jordan also lasted the race, Frentzen retiring with a hydraulic failure from second, and Trulli with an engine failure from fourth. All this gave Ferrari an easy 1-2 with Schumacher winning from Barrichello, with Ralf Schumacher, driving for Williams completing the podium.

For the second round in Brazil, the top four were the same again in qualifying, with Häkkinen and Coulthard starting 1-2 ahead of Schumacher and Barrichello. Schumacher, who was on a two-stop strategy took the lead within two laps, built up a 20 second gap, and pitted. He rejoined in second, behind Häkkinen. Coulthard was suffering from gearbox problems, and so was not quick enough. Barrichello, who was also on a two-stopper was stuck behind Häkkinen for 15 laps, before passing him, and this compromised his race. He rejoined fourth after his stop, but his engine blew up soon after. Häkkinen was starting to edge away from Schumacher, until he had to retire with an oil leak. This gave Schumacher the win, ahead of Coulthard and Giancarlo Fisichella. There was controversy after the race when all the drivers in the top six with the exception of Fisichella were excluded because of problems with their wodden floors. The teams appealed but when the FIA was scrutineering the cars again, they found out that the front wing endplates on Coulthard's car were lower than they should have been. Thus, the position of everyone except for Coulthard was reinstated. The final top 3 were: Schumacher, Fisichella and Frentzen. Notably, Jenson Button was sixth, and got his first ever points. He also set the record for the youngest F1 driver to score a point.

After two rounds, Schumacher had a maximum 20 out of 20 points, and no one else had even 10, and notably both McLaren drivers had none. Second was Fisichella with 8, with Barrichello third with 6. Ferrari also had a big lead in the Constructors with 26 points, the second being Benetton with 8 and the third being Williams with 7. McLaren had none.

The third round was in San Marino, and Häkkinen took his third consecutive pole, with Schumacher splitting the McLarens, and Barrichello was fourth. Häkkinen and Schumacher maintained their positions at the start, while Barrichello got past Coulthard. The race developed into a battle between Häkkinen and Schumacher, and a stunning IN and OUT lap during the second round of pitstops got the German in front. Schumacher won, much to the delight of the crowds, with Häkkinen second, and Coulthard third ahead of Barrichello.

The European season started off in Britain, and in a wet-dry qualifying, Barrichello took his third pole position of his career, beating Frentzen by three-thousandth of a second, with the McLarens on the second row, Häkkinen ahead of Coulthard. Schumacher could manage only fifth. At the start, the top two got away well and kept their places, while Coulthard got ahead of his teammate, and Schumacher lost three places. Frentzen was on a two-stop strategy, and pitted, leaving Barrichello leading from Coulthard and Häkkinen. Barrichello kept a gap till his car started suffering from engine and hydraulic problems, and Coulthard took the lead on lap 30 with a superb passing manoeuvre on the outside at Stowe. He pitted two laps later, giving back the lead to the fading Barrichello. Barrichello hung around until lap 35 when he spun at Luffied, and drove his car to the pits only to find out his team weren't ready. He waited until the stop was over, only to find out that he couldn't restart the car as his hydraulics had completely failed. This left him with no option but to retire. Frentzen now led, but after his second stop he rejoined fourth behind the McLarens and Schumacher. Frentzen's gearbox failed 6 laps from the end, forcing him to retire. Coulthard took his second consecutive home victory, ahead of Häkkinen who completed the McLaren 1-2, with Schumacher third.

The win got Coulthard to second in the standings with 14 points, but 20 behind Schumacher who had 34. Häkkinen had 12, and Barrichello and Ralf Schumacher had 9. In the Constructors, Ferrari had 43 points, while McLaren had 26.

Round 5 was in Spain, and Schumacher took his first pole of the year ahead of Häkkinen, Barrichello and Coulthard who was not 100% fit after a plane crash in France. Schumacher and Häkkinen stayed first and second after the start, but their teammates had lost out to Ralf Schumacher. Schumacher stalled during the second round of stops, and lost the lead to Häkkinen. After the stops, Schumacher had a problem with his tyres, and was passed by Coulthard, Ralf and Barrichello. He then pitted, and rejoined fifth. Häkkinen took his first win of the season, with Coulthard making it a second successive McLaren 1-2, and Barrichello completed the podium. Schumacher was fifth behind his brother.

The European Grand Prix, held at the Nurburgring in Germany was next. Coulthard took pole ahead of Schumacher, Häkkinen and Barrichello. Coulthard did not have a great start and was quickly passed by Schumacher. Häkkinen, however, had a blinder and shot past both of them. And then the rains came. Schumacher immediately showed why he was called the 'Regenmeister' or Rainmaster by passing Häkkinen on lap 11 at the chicane. Everyone pitted to change tyres, and the order got scrambled. Schumacher kept the lead, Coulthard and got ahead of Häkkinen and Barrichello was down in ninth. Häkkinen passed Coulthard, who was struggling badly with a problem. There were no more changes at the front. Schumacher won from Häkkinen, Coulthard was third but was lapped, and Barrichello charged back up from ninth to fourth.

With over a third of the season complete, Schumacher led the championship with 46 points, Häkkinen was second with 28, Coulthard was third with 24, and Barrichello was fourth with 16. In the Constructors, Ferrari had 62 points, McLaren had 52, and Williams were best of the rest with 15.

The glamorous Monaco Grand Prix was the seventh round, and Schumacher eased to pole. Jordan found some pace, with Trulli getting second ahead of Coulthard, and Frentzen fourth ahead of Häkkinen. As the race started, the top drivers maintained their places, but in the midfield, Jenson Button tipped Pedro de la Rosa into a spin, blocking the track. The race had to be red-flagged. Out came the second start, and all the drivers started cleanly. The Jordans were not as quick as they were in qualifying, and Trulli was clearly holding up Coulthard, and the latter could do nothing about it. Schumacher shot out into the distance at a second a lap. Then, on lap 37, Trulli retired with a gearbox failure, releasing Coulthard. Coulthard closed in on Schumacher, but with a gap of 36 seconds, there was nothing much he could do until Schumacher had a broken suspension on the 55th lap, forcing him to retire. Häkkinen was fifth until he slowed down with a problem. The team were able to fix it and send him back out again. Frentzen, who was running second punted his car into the wall with 8 laps to go, in an attrition-filled race. Coulthard took the win, ahead of Barrichello and Giancarlo Fisichella, while Häkkinen mustered sixth place.

Now to North America for the Canadian GP. Schumacher took pole ahead of Coulthard, Barrichello and Häkkinen. The top two kept their grid positions into the first corner, but Jacques Villeneuve was up to third ahead of Barrichello and Häkkinen. This allowed the top two to pull away. And then Coulthard was given a 10 second stop-and-go penalty because his mechanics worked on his car less than 15 seconds before the parade lap. He rejoined in the midfield. Barrichello passed Villeneuve on lap 17, but the gap to Schumacher was 20 seconds. Häkkinen took third from Villeneuve on lap 28, and the order settled down until it started raining. Everyone pitted for wets, and the order was shuffled completely. Schumacher stayed first, but Fischella had got ahead of Barrichello and Häkkinen, with Trulli fifth. A mistake from Fisichella allowed Barrichello through into second. Schumacher took his fifth win of the season, with Barrichello making it a Ferrari 1-2 ahead of Fisichella. Häkkinen had to be content with fourth.

With nearly half the season over, Schumacher had a 22 point lead in the standings, with 56 points to Coulthard's 34. Häkkinen and Barrichello were not far behind, with 32 and 28 points respectively. In the Constructors, Ferrari had a 18 point lead over McLaren, with 84 points to the other's 66. Benetton were third with 18.

The French Grand Prix was next on the calendar. Schumacher took his third consecutive pole, and again Coulthard was second, Barrichello third and Häkkinen fourth. When the race started, Schumacher kept first but Coulthard was beaten by Barrichello. Schumacher slowly started to pull away from his teammate and built a lead. Coulthard's car handled better as the fuel load decreased, and on lap 22, he passed Barrichello. During the round of pitstops, Barrichello lost out to Häkkinen. Schumacher's tyres were badly blistered, and so the McLarens and Barrichello started to close in on him. Coulthard tried to pass him at the outside of the Adelaide hairpin but Schumacher pushed him wide. Coulthard was not happy and made a series of irate gestures. A few laps later, Coulthard went for the inside at the same corner and made the move cleanly. Coulthard apologized for his gestures after the race. Schumacher kept second until 12 laps from the end when his engine blew up. Coulthard won, with Häkkinen making it a McLaren 1-2, and Barrichello completed the podium.

The A1-Ring in Austria was the host for Round 10. Häkkinen and Coulthard started 1-2, for the first time since Brazil, with the Ferraris behind. However, it was Barrichello in third and Schumacher was fourth. The McLarens maintained their positions at the start, but there was carnage behind, with the Ferraris at the centre. Trulli hit the back of Barrichello, and at the same time, Ricardo Zonta hit Schumacher, tipping him to a spin. Schumacher spun in Trulli's parth and was hit by Trulli. Both retired. During the mayhem that followed, Mika Salo emerged third and Pedro de la Rosa emerged fourth, with Barrichello down in ninth. The McLarens quickly disappeared into the distance, while de la Rosa took third from Salo. Barrichello charged back up to fourth, which became third when de la Rosa's engine failed, putting him cruelly out from third. Häkkinen and Coulthard gave McLaren their fourth 1-2, with Barrichello finishing third. After the race, McLaren were docked 10 Constructors points because an FIA seal was found to be missing from Häkkinen's car. Häkkinen was not docked any points.

With 10 races out of 17 finished, Schumacher leads the championship with 56 points, but because he retired in the previous two races, the McLarens are within striking distance. Coulthard was only 6 points behind with 50, and Häkkinen a further two points behind with 48. Barrichello was fourth with 36, and Fisichella was fifth with 18. In the Constructors, Ferrari lead by only 4 points now, with 92 compared to McLaren's 88. Williams are third with 19.

Now to Germany, and Coulthard took his second pole ahead of Schumacher, with Fisichella taKing third from Häkkinen in a dry-wet qualifying. Häkkinen had one of his best ever starts, and shot up to first even before the first corner. Schumacher was hit from behind by Fisichella, and both were punted into the wall. This left Häkkinen and Coulthard running 1-2, with no one to challenge them. After 25 laps out of 44, the McLarens were half a minute ahead of third-placed Trulli. de la Rosa was fourth, ahead of Barrichello who was both recovering from a bad qualifying. And then, a disgruntled Mercedes-Benz employee ran to the track with a banner. The safety car was out, while the man was taken away. Everyone took the chance to pit, and Coulthard lost out badly because McLaren could not take both their cars at the same time. As the race restarted, it started raining. However, it rained only in some portion of the track. Everyone with the exception of Barrichello and Frentzen pitted. This left Barrichello leading ahead of Frentzen, Häkkinen, Trulli and Coulthard. Those on dries were lapping as quick as those on wets. Trulli was given a stop-go penalty for overtaking under yellow flags. Frentzen lost second when his gearbox failed. This left Barrichello to take his first ever win ahead of Häkkinen and Coulthard.

The drivers went to Hungary for the next round, and Schumacher took pole ahead of Coulthard, Häkkinen, Ralf Schumacher and Barrichello. Häkkinen again started like a rocket, and beat both Schumacher and Coulthard into the first corner. Häkkinen pulled away, and Coulthard was held up by Schumacher. Coulthard would have got in front of Schumacher at the second round of stops, but lost time behind Gastón Mazzacane and then Marc Gené. This meant he emerged a fraction behind Schumacher. Häkkinen won, with Schumacher and Coulthard making up the podium. Barrichello beat Ralf to fourth.

Häkkinen's win had now given him the lead in the championship, with 64 points to Schumacher's 62. Coulthard was third with 58, and Barrichello fourth with 49. Fisichella was fifth with 18. In the Constructors, McLaren took the lead from Ferrari, a lead of 1 point, with 112 compared to Ferrari's 111. Williams were third with 24.

Round 13 out of 17 was in Belgium. Häkkinen took pole, and much to his joy, Trulli and Button took second and third, pushing Schumacher and Coulthard down to fourth and fifth. It was wet at the start, but the top 5 maintained their positions. Häkkinen immediately set about building up a lead. On lap 5, Button tried to pass Trulli, and they collided. Trulli was out, and Button lost places. Schumacher and Coulthard gladly took second and third. The former now started to close in on Häkkinen, and took the lead when Häkkinen had a half-spin on lap 12. As the track dried out, everyone changed from wet to dry tyres. Coulthard stayed out too long, and dropped from third to ninth. On a dry track, Häkkinen was faster than Schumacher, and chased him down. With four laps to go, he made a move, but Schumacher turned at him and forced him to the grass at 200 mph. On the next lap, when they were coming to lap Ricardo Zonta, the two men took either sides, and when they turned, Häkkinen was ahead. Häkkinen went on to win and Schumacher had to be content with second. Ralf was third, and Coulthard bounced back to finish fourth.

The next round was in Italy, the home of Ferrari. Their drivers didn't disappoint, Schumacher and Barrichello giving them their first 1-2 start of the season, ahead of Häkkinen, Jacques Villeneuve and coulthard. At the start, Schumacher and the McLarens, on the clean side started well, but Barrichello and Villeneuve started badly. Schumacher and Häkkinen were first and second, with Coulthard third. Into the second chicane, and Frentzen just braked too late, and hit the back of Barrichello and Trulli, who were running side by side. All three spun, and Coulthard too was collected in the madness. Later, it came out that a fire marshal, Paolo Ghislimberti was killed after he was hit on the chest by a wheel from this collision. The top 3 at the end of this carnage were: Schumacher, Häkkinen and Ralf. The race restarted after 10 laps behind the safety car, and Schumacher and Häkkinen quickly pulled away from the rest. Häkkinen tried to outpace Schumacher, but he was just not as quick as the latter. Schumacher took his sixth win of the year, ahead of Häkkinen and Ralf. After the race, Schumacher burst into tears in the press conference, when told that he had equalled Ayrton Senna's record of 41 wins, and also about Ghislimberti's death.

With three more races to go, Häkkinen still led Schumacher by 2 points, with 80 compared to the latter's 78. Coulthard was all but out of it, and was third with 61. Barrichello was fourth with 49, Ralf was fifth with 20, and Fisichella sixth with 18. In the Constructors, McLaren had 131 points, and a lead of 4 points over Ferrari who had 127. Williams was third with 30.

The United States Grand Prix hosted the 15th round, and Schumacher took his seventh pole of the season. Coulthard was second, with Häkkinen and Barrichello third and fourth. Before the race, it rained, and so everyone started on wet tyres. The red lights stayed longer than usual for the start, and Coulthard took off a little too early. This gave him the lead, but it was clear that he would suffer a penalty. He led, ahead of Schumacher and Häkkinen. He knew he would have to suffer a penalty, and blocked Schumacher so that his teammate could close in. Schumacher was having none of it, and passed Coulthard on lap 7 at the first corner. The track began to dry out, and Häkkinen pitted for dries. He came out behind Gaston Mazzacane, and was stuck there. He probably lost 13 seconds. Coulthard soon had his penalty and dropped out of contention. The Ferraris stayed out late, and while Schumacher was ten seconds in the lead, Barrichello rejoined in the mid-field. The top 3 after the change for dries were: Schumacher, Häkkinen and Ralf. Häkkinen set a string of fastest laps, and closed down a 10 second gap to Schumacher to 4 in ten laps, only for his engine to blow up on lap 25. Schumacher was left with a big lead ahead of his brother, which became even bigger when Ralf's engine failed with 12 laps to go, giving second to Frentzen. Frentzen, however was soon passed by a charging Barrichello. Schumacher had a spin towards the end, but hit nothing and survived. He went on to win, with Barrichello making it a Ferrari 1-2, and Frentzen completed the podium.

This win, coupled with Häkkinen's retirement gave Schumacher an 8 point lead, and a win in the next round will give him the title. The result also gave Ferrari the lead in the Constructors Championship.

The penultimate round was in Japan, and Schumacher beat Häkkinen to pole by 0.009 seconds. Coulthard was third and Barrichello fourth. The race started in overcast conditions, with rain looming. Häkkinen started off better than Schumacher and took the lead. Coulthard maintained third. The two title contenders, Häkkinen and Schumacher pulled away from the others at over a second a lap and were separated by 2–3 seconds. The first round of stops changed nothing. Then, some rain started spitting down at the track, and Schumacher started to close in. Schumacher's second pitstop was three laps after Häkkinen's, and although he was 2 seconds behind Häkkinen before the stops, he came out 4 seconds ahead. Schumacher won the race, and the championship, with Häkkinen and Coulthard completing the podium. Barrichello finished fourth.

The final round of the season was in Malaysia. Schumacher took pole again, as usual ahead of Häkkinen, Coulthard and aflu-ridden Barrichello. Schumacher had a poor start from pole, and immediately both McLarens were aheads of him. However, it was clear that Häkkinen had jumped the start and will get a penalty. He let Coulthard through, and held up the Ferraris until he went in for the penalty. Coulthard had a good lead, but wasted it by running wide a Turn 3. He pitted before Schumacher, and the time he lost by the mistake gave the lead to Schumacher. The two ran together for the rest of the race, with Barrichello unable to keep up. Schumacher won again, ahead of Coulthard and Barrichello, and this ensured the Construtors championship for Ferrari. Häkkinen charged back to finish fourth.

At the end of the season, Schumacher was champion with 108 points, Häkkinen was second with 89, Coulthard third with 73, Barrichello fourth with 62, Ralf fifth with 24 and Fisichella sixth with 18. In the Constructors, Ferrari won with 170 points, McLaren were second with 152, and Williams were third with 36.

Notes

  • To keep costs down, the V10 engine configuration was made mandatory in 2000 so that engine builders would not develop and experiment with other configurations.[3] The V10 configuration had been the most popular since the banning of turbocharged engines in 1989, and no other configuration had been used since 1998.
  • This season held the record for least number of drivers competing in a single season with only 1 driver change (Luciano Burti in Austria) putting the total at 23. This record stood until 2008, where there were no driver changes.
