The 2001 Spanish Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held on 29 April 2001 at the Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain. It was the fifth round of the 2001 Formula One season. The race, contested over 65 laps, was won by Michael Schumacher driving a Ferrari car after starting from pole position. Juan Pablo Montoya finished second driving a Williams car with Jacques Villeneuve third driving for the BAR team.


ReportEdit

Michael Schumacher won the race even though he was 40 seconds behind Mika Häkkinen on the penultimate lap. The Finn, who had lapped the third placed Juan-Pablo Montoya, suffered from a hydraulic failure on the final lap of the race. This handed Michael Schumacher probably one of his luckier wins as he was suffering with a bad vibration. Jacques Villeneuve gave BAR their first ever podium finish. David Coulthard's race was ruined when his car failed to fire up at the start, and later knocked off his front wing. He would eventually fight back to 5th.
