On 30th July 2006, the German Grand Prix was held at Hockenheim. Kimi Raikkonen ruled the roost in his McLaren in qualifying, while Ferraris were next up with Michael Schumacher and Felipe Massa second and third respectively. In the race, the 248 F1 were very competitive and delivered a one-two finish.
Michael took the 89th victory of his career, beating Massa by less than a second. Third was Raikkonen, while championship leader, Fernando Alonso in the Renault, was only fifth, behind Jenson Button in his Honda.
Scuderia Ferrari’s 72nd one-two, put Schumacher and the team back in the hunt for both titles. The German was now just 11 points behind Alonso while Ferrari was 10 points down on Renault.
