Summary

The race started with two big accidents at the first corner, which took out 7 cars. At Turn 1, Mark Webber collided with Christian Klien, who then spun around and was taken out by Franck Montagny. In Turn 2, Juan Pablo Montoya nudged his team-mate Kimi Räikkönen into a spin. Montoya then clouted Jenson Button whose front right tyre got caught by BMW-Sauber's Nick Heidfeld who was launched into a triple barrel roll; Montoya also caught Scuderia Toro Rosso's Scott Speed in the incident. None of the drivers were injured. After that, the order stayed the same at the front, the only action being a battle at the back between David Coulthard, Nico Rosberg, and Vitantonio Liuzzi. Rosberg was the loser and the only finishing driver not to score in the race.

Notes

  • Jarno Trulli's car was still being repaired when cars were sent to parc fermé. Because of that, Trulli had to start from the pit lane. His place in the grid was filled.
  • Nico Rosberg was penalised for ignoring a signal during the qualification session, requiring him to get his car weighed at the FIA garage. The FIA canceled all Nico's qualifying times, and he started from the 21st position.
  • Vitantonio Liuzzi had the engine of his car changed, and he started from 20th position on the grid.
  • The cause of the first seven retirements were two separate incidents at the 1st and 2nd corners.
  • First point: Scuderia Toro Rosso
  • This is, to this date, the last race of Juan Pablo Montoya in Formula 1, due to the events following his announcement on July 9, 2006 of changing to NASCAR for the 2007 season for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing.[3]
