Schumacher takes the victory by 40 seconds over Montoya and Villeneuve. No points for Hakkinen as everyone up to Raikkonen had passed the slow Ferrari.
---
Hakkinen is now just coasting on his final lap ... it's a blown engine!
---
Hakkinen is now just two laps away from the chequered flag, with Schumacher some 30 seconds back.
---
On lap 60, Coulthard passes Heidfeld to claim the final points-paying position.
---
Schumacher now appears to have a serious problem, as he is losing more than 2 seconds a lap to the leading McLaren.
---
Hakkinen laps Trulli on lap 55, leaving only four drivers on the lead lap. His lead over Schumacher is now over 7 seconds.
---
Barrichello retires, so it is now Hakkinen, Schumacher and Montoya at the front, followed by Villeneuve, Trulli and Nick Heidfeld.
---
Hakkinen pits with a 26-second lead ... is it enough? It is, as the Finn pulls out of the pits just ahead of the Ferrari!
---
Barrichello tours through a gravel trap: is there a suspension problem? He pits, but the team only changes tires.
---
Identical 9.3 second stops for both Ferraris, as they take on fuel and brand-new rubber.
---
The second round of stops begins with Schumacher having a four-second lead over Hakkinen. Barrichello is 20 seconds back, with Montoya further 30 seconds adrift.
---
Panis moves past Kimi Raikkonen, and a few laps later Coulthard follows, with the Finn falling back quickly. Mechanical problems for the Sauber?
---
Hakkinen exits the pits two seconds behind Schumacher. At the end of the first round of pit stops it's Schumacher, Hakkinen, Barrichello, Montoya, Jacques Villeneuve and Jarno Trulli. Coulthard is in 11th, 10 seconds adrift of Olivier Panis.
---
Schumacher counters with a 1:21.151: the new tires appear to make more of a difference than the weight of the fuel.
---
Hakkinen still on track, setting a new fastest lap of 1:21.641 on a light fuel load in trying to make up time on Schumacher.

Michael Schumacher in the pits at lap 23, a quick trouble-free stop.

---
Pedro de la Rosa collides with Heintz-Harald Frentzen on lap 6, taking both drivers out of the race.

Coulthard has to make an additional pit stop after running into Enrique Bernoldi at the back of the pack. The Scot is now nearly a minute behind the leaders.
---
Juan Montoya's start was the most impressive: the Colombian moved from 12th on the grid to 6th position.
---
At the start, it's Michael Schumacher and Mika Hakkinen holding positions, followed by Rubens Barrichello and Ralf Schumacher.
---
David Coulthard stalls his McLaren at the start of the formation lap. He gets it going with help from the mechanics, but will have to start from the back of the grid.
