2001 Hungarian Grand Prix

The 2001 Hungarian Grand Prix (officially the XVII Marlboro Magyar Nagydij) was a Formula One motor race held at Hungaroring on 19 August 2001. It was the 13th race of the 2001 FIA Formula One World Championship and the 16th edition of the event as part of the series. Ferrari driver Michael Schumacher won the 77-lap race from pole position. His teammate Rubens Barrichello finished second and David Coulthard was third for McLaren.

Michael Schumacher qualified on pole position by setting the fastest lap in qualifying, and he began alongside Coulthard. Barrichello made a brisk start to pass Coulthard and he tactically delayed the McLaren driver from lap 12 to provide his teammate Michael Schumacher with a significant lead over the rest of the field. Schumacher only lost the lead during the pit stop phases, maintaining the lead for the majority of the race to achieve his seventh victory of 2001 and the 51st of his career. His win confirmed him as the 2001 Drivers’ Champion, as Coulthard could not pass his points total with four races remaining in the season, and he also equalled Alain Prost for the all-time record of career victories.

Schumacher received praise from many in the Formula One community for his title victory and it was headline news in Germany and Italy. Barrichello’s second-place finish helped Ferrari win the Constructors’ Championship for the third consecutive season and the 11th time overall. McLaren were 13 points ahead of Williams in third while Sauber moved one point ahead of British American Racing (BAR) for fourth.
