Crazy fan on track at the German GP 2000. The race was won by Brazilian driver Rubens Barrichello driving a Scuderia Ferrari F1-2000 in his debut Grand Prix victory. Barrichello won by 7 seconds over Finnish driver Mika Häkkinen in a McLaren Mercedes MP4/15. Häkkinen's British team-mate David Coulthard was third. Barrichello's win was the first victory by a Brazilian driver since three-time world champion Ayrton Senna seven years previously at the 1993 Australian Grand Prix. The race was also remembered for a disgruntled Mercedes employee who put on a raincoat and walked along the side of the track. This brought out a safety car and promptly ruined McLaren Mercedes' chances of winning.
