The Race that Was: Italy 1999

With the benefit of hindsight, Formula 1’s 1999 Italian Grand Prix was a momentous occasion for Team Silverstone in its Jordan guise. Victory for Heinz-Harald Frentzen at Monza proved to be his third and final F1 win, and it was also the only victory in the Jordan era to occur in dry conditions. Not only that but the Mugen brand that powered Jordan took its final win in this race too. Frentzen was clinging on in the title race between the Finn and Ferrari’s Eddie Irvine, but it was the McLaren driver on pole position. The championship battle is now really close – I cannot believe it,” said Frentzen. The 1999 season proved to be one Frentzen’s most impressive campaigns with Monza his second and final win of the campaign.
