FL: Juan-Pablo Montoya 2:03.508 (198.876 kph)

First time on pole, Dane Tom Kristensen had a bad start and was punched off the track by Portuguese Rui Aguas with a kamikaze-action in the first chicane. Aguas was black flagged later for this maneuvre, but traditionally ignored it, continuing the battle for third position, and was taken out of the race by teamorder after half of the distance.

Juan-Pablo Montoya (COL) had to start from 15th position. His quickest qualification time was annulled for using an illegal diffuser and illegal modified fixpoints at the front dashpots. He did a brilliant race and despite an excursion through the gravel, came in fifth.
