Overeager teamwork at Ferrari
The race in Sepang 1999 is characterized by Ferrari's teamplay. Schumacher lets Irvine pass - twice. Schumacher tries to block the McLarens behind him to let Irvine drive away, Coulthard can press through nevertheless.

This rather unpopular teamwork at Ferrari was unnecessary as it turns out: Coulthard retires and because of an extra pit-stop, Häkkinen can make it onto the podium just barely.
