- Hockenheim, August 2, 1998
leave Ferrari far behind them
Prior to the German Grand Prix at
Hockenheim one still had the impression that the
gap between Ferrari and McLaren-Mercedes had been
apparently it is not: Michael Schumacher could
not do better than a fifth position in the end.
the Williams (Villeneuve on 3rd) and Jordan
(Damon Hill came in 4th) appeared to have been
superior to the Ferrari on the highspeed circuit
in southwestern Germany.
race was everything but spectacular, being
dominated very clearly by Mika Häkkinen and
David Coulthard; Eddie Irvine did not even get
into the points - he came in on 8th position.
back at the two seasons of 1996 and 1997, the
outcome of the German Grand Prix is not that
surprising. Since the V10 has been in use at
Maranello, the results on the highspeed tracks
have - unfortunately - become quite disappointing
for the Scuderia and their fans.
