All the highlights of the British Grand Prix from start to finish.
Lap 1: At the start of the race Michael Schumacher takes the lead with Mika Hakkinen behind him. In the first corner third-placed David Coulthard is hit from behind by Jarno Trulli. Both men spin, Trulli into the sandtrap on the outside of the corner and Coulthard on the inside. David rejoins at the back of the field. Further back the two BARs nearly collide and Olivier Panis goes off into the sandtrap. This means that the fast-starting Juan Pablo Montoya takes third place ahead of Rubens Barrichello and Ralf Schumacher (up from 10th on the grid) and Kimi Raikkonen and Nick Heidfeld. Heinz-Harald Frentzen ends the first lap in eighth, having dropped three places. In the midfield, Jean Alesi makes a good start to jump from 14th to ninth, while Jos Verstappen leaps from 17th to 11th in his Arrows. At the end of the first lap Hakkinen is two-tenths ahead of Schumacher. The pair are 1.9secs clear of Montoya.
Lap 2: Schumacher manages to add another tenth of a second to his lead.
Lap 3: Mika Hakkinen sets the fastest lap of the race and the gap closes to just one tenth. At the back of the field Coulthard suffers a problem with his rear suspension, probably as a result of his brush with Trulli, and spins off at Priory.
Lap 4: Hakkinen remains on Schumacher’s tail. Further back in the field Verstappen passes both Villeneuve and Alesi to take ninth position. At the back of the field Fisichella goes off and bounces over a sandtrap, rejoining behind Fernando Alonso’s Minardi.

Lap 41: Montoya, Heidfeld and Frentzen all pit. Also stopping is seventh-placed Verstappen, who drops down to 10th place.
Lap 42: Barrichello stops for his one and only pit stop. He is eager to hold on to his third place ahead of Montoya and the two Saubers. At the back of the field Bernoldi and Fisichella both stop for a second time. The two are side-by-side as they exit the pits, Bernoldi eventually backing off as Fisichella has the right of way.
