|For overtaking during yellow and red flags, both championship aspirants get a 2-second penalty on their qualifying-times and have to start from positions 11 and 15.
All drivers except Barrichello start on intermediate-tyres. In a exceptional first lap, Schumacher gets 4th position and Alonso 6th. After just 4 laps Alonso overtook Schumacher and Räikkonen leads in front of de la Rosa, Alonso and Schumacher. Schumacher who seems to have problems with his tyres, falls back behind Button, but can keep Fisichella behind him for now.
In the next laps Alonso gains the lead because of other driver's pitstops and overlaps Schumacher after just 24 laps.
However, Räikkonen's incident causes a Safety-Car phase and Alonso loses his big lead and Schumacher can his lost lap.
After that Schumacher's car (or tyres) seem to work better and he starts to gain up to 4 seconds on the leader. Also Button gains on Alonso while the rain stops and the track gets dryer.
After Alonso has to retire because of a badly attached wheel and Heidfeld has go to the pits, Schumacher is already on second place. However the track is already very dry and Schumacher is the only driver in the leading group left with intermediate-tyres.
Schumacher can't keep up with the others and loses first his second place to de la Rosa, then he collides with Heidfeld and has to retire 3 laps before the finish.
Finally we get a podium full of outsiders: Button wins in front of de la Rosa and Heidfeld.
