Today In History: Schumi wins Malaysian Grand Prix

21 October 2000, Sepang: The crowds went wild and the circuit was a sea of Ferrari red when newly-crowned world champion Michael Schumacher, in winning the Malaysian Grand Prix, ensured that Ferrari retained the constructors title with 170 points to Mclaren’s 152.

Schumacher had won his third world title in Japan two weeks ago, becoming the first Ferrari driver since South African Jody Scheckter in 1979 to take the championship.

It was Schumacher’s ninth victory of a triumphant season, equalling the all-time record, his fourth win in succession and the 44th of his career on a day when Ferrari extended their team recort to 10 wins in one year.
