Report

The British Grand Prix was held at Easter and the meeting was marred by the inevitable poor weather. Heavy rain forced the waterlogged car parks to be closed during practice but raceday was dry. Rubens Barrichello’s Ferrari led from pole position but David Coulthard (McLaren-Mercedes) made the most of his small mistake to take the lead into Stowe on lap 31. Barrichello retired and Mika Häkkinen chased his team-mate across the line in a 1-2 for McLaren.
