Michael Schumacher led a Ferrari one-two at the 1999 Monaco Grand Prix, after pole-man Mika Hakkinen’s challenge faded away in the McLaren.

Eddie Irvine, in the second Ferrari took second place and Mika Hakkinen was third (picture below).

By taking his 16th win with Ferrari, Schumacher became the most successful driver the illustrious Scuderia has ever had.

Michael Schumacher declared: “You win a race, the next race it’s a question mark. Are you still the best or not? That’s what is interesting and that’s what is challenging. You have to prove yourself every time.”

However, at the end of the season, it’s the Fin Mika Hakkinen, who for the second consecutive time, became World Champion.
