Rubens wins a comfortable victory

Rubens Barrichello has won this afternoon's Italian Grand Prix at Monza ahead of teammate Michael Schumacher and an impressive Eddie Irvine for the Jaguar team. Barrichello managed to muscle his way past the Williams drivers at the start of the race and looked fast and controlled at all times.

Ralf Schumacher managed to lead the race from the start, but a move on his own teammate resulted in jumping the first chicane and an order from the FIA to let Juan Montoya through again. As soon as his teammate was ahead, Schumacher‘s BMW engine let go in a cloud of smoke.

In the confusion, Montoya made a mistake and Rubens took a lead, which he would only lose to his teammate in between pit stops.
