Entering Turn 1 on Lap 3, Juan Pablo Montoya pulling alongside Rubens Barrichello on the outside to challenge for 6th. As they entered the left-handed Turn 2, Montoya was squeezed onto the curb and then the grass by the Ferrari, and as they began to exit the turn the right front wheel of the Williams touched the Ferrari's sidepod - forcing Barrichello into the gravel and out of the race. Montoya managed to continue in eighth place with no apparent damage - even setting the fastest time on Lap 8, and by Lap 15 moving up to third on a drying track.
