The 1999 German Grand Prix was a Formula One race held on August 1, 1999 at the Hockenheimring near Hockenheim, Germany. It was the tenth race of the 1999 Formula One season. With Michael Schumacher out injured, Eddie Irvine took a second successive victory as he chased the championship, aided by stand-in team-mate Mika Salo moving over to give him the lead. In the early laps Finnish drivers ran first and second, which Martin Brundle noted is not bad for a nation of 5 million. However, Mika HAckkinen ultimately retired due to a wheel failure, allowing Heinz-Harald Frentzen to finish 3rd in his home Grand Prix. Damon Hill was again rumoured to be leaving Formula One when he allegedly retired a healthy car. Hill claimed the Jordan had brake problems. Eddie Irvine gave the winner's trophy to Mika Salo, who was leading towards the end of the race and moved over on team orders, after the race. The McLaren-Mercedes which HAckkinen crashed in, is on display at the Science Museum in London.Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
