Ralf Schumacher won the Canadian Grand Prix. It is his second win of the season and his whole career. Michael Schumacher was leading most of the race, but when he had to pit, his younger brother managed to stay out and make several fast laps which enabled him to pit and stay in front of M Schumacher, that finished 2nd. David Coulthard wasn't very competitive today, but he was running in 3rd place when his engine blew up on the fastest part of the track and forced him to retire. Mika Hakkinen, who started in the 8th position, lost several places on the start, and got stuck behind slower cars that he wasn't able to overtake, but, as soon as some of them got out of his way, he managed to go up to the 3rd place, in which he finished. It is the first podium finish for Hakkinen this season. Jarno Trulli started in the 4th position, but lost his place to Rubens Barichello and gained it back later on in the race. Eventually, Trulli retired with only a few laps left to the race. Juan Pablo Montoya crashed in the exit of the first chickane early in the race, causing Barichello to hit the wall and retire. The safety car had to be called out as a result. Jean Alesi managed to finish in 5th spot, making two races in a row for Prost in the points. Kimi Raikkonen had an uneventful race which he finished in the 4th place, moving Sauber to the 4th place in the Constructors championship. Pedro De La Rosa finished 6th, it is the 2nd race in a row that Jaguar has scored points (Irvine finished 3rd in Monaco). Ricardo Zonta replaced the injured Heinz Harald Frentzen for this race. Zonta had a good start, he gained 2 places, overtaking Villeneuve and Hakkinen, he kept gaining places during the race, but he lost some time in the pits, and finished just outside the points, in 7th. BAR had a pretty bad race, with Jacques Villeneuve almost stalling on the grid, and later retiring, Olivier Panis lost a place in the start, but looked confident and would have finished in the points if he hadn't been forced to retire because of a mechanical problem. Benetton's race was even worse, after its two drivers, Giancarlo Fisichela, and Jenson Button colided on the first lap, forcing Fisichela out of the race, and Jenson Button getting a penalty for jumping the start of the race, he didn't finish the race, either.
Pacifism only works if EVERYBODY practices it
