  • Robert Doornbos' brakes caught fire due to an incorrect brake pipe fitting.

  • Williams-BMW cars retired from the race due to right-rear tyre failures - twice for each car.
  • Michael Schumacher and Mark Webber collided on lap 14. Schumacher's rear suspension was damaged, but he later rejoined the race after repairs to improve his qualifying slot by three positions at the next race. Webber's Williams lost the nose cone.
  • Juan Pablo Montoya was comfortably heading for second place on the penultimate lap when he clashed with the Jordan of Tiago Monteiro, damaging the diffuser. On the next lap Montoya ran straight ahead on Turn 8, losing second place to Fernando Alonso.
  • Felipe Massa lost his front wing and bargeboard in a first corner collision with Nick Heidfeld. After the replacements he managed to continue racing until lap 29 where his engine failed.
  • Juan Pablo Montoya's fastest lap was over 2 seconds faster than his team mate's qualifying time, usually fastest race laps are far slower than qualifying lap times.
