Sunday, July 16, 2006
Toyota did not live up to their promise in the qualifying session on Saturday with only one car finished, that of Ralf Schumacher. McLaren-Mercedes driver Kimi Raikkonen finished fifth. Pedro de la Rosa finished seventh.
This victory is the 150-th podium finish for Michael Schumacher, and cut down Alonso's lead in the championship race to 17 points. It was his eighth French Grand Prix victory - the first driver to win a Grand Prix eight times, which surpassed his own record of seven.
