Video: How Schumacher scored his first Ferrari F1 win - 1996 Spanish GP

Michael Schumacher’s remarkable career at Ferrari encompassed 72 grands prix wins and five Formula 1 drivers’ titles.

Things didn’t look that promising, however, when he first joined the famous Italian team in 1996. Only a drive of wet-weather virtuosity got him off the mark when Ferrari was outgunned by Williams.

In the latest of Autosport’s “Short View Back to the Past” series, chief editor Kevin Turner looks at Schumacher’s brilliant drive in the 1996 Spanish GP.
