In a dry Sunday warm-up, Williams set their cars up for a dry race and started the race with dry tyres. Schumacher set his car for a wet race, and started with wet tyres. By lap 5, Schumacher was ahead by 22 seconds. He won the race by nearly a minute to future team mate and fellow wet weather specialist Rubens Barrichello, while both Williams drivers crashed out.
Sure as hell made up for the embarrassment of crashing out on the first lap the year earlier.
