The 1999 Ferrari season was Scuderia Ferrari's 50th season as a constructor. Their season was overshadowed by a bad accident for their star driver Michael Schumacher who crashed at Stowe corner during the British Grand Prix, breaking his leg. He missed six races, ending his championship hopes. Mika Salo took over from Schumacher in his absence.

Eddie Irvine won four races during the year, and finished runner-up in the Drivers' Championship to Mika Häkkinen, which allowed Ferrari to take the Constructors' Championship from McLaren.

This race saw a British 1-2 by David Coulthard and Eddie Irvine but was overshadowed by a terrible accident involving Schumacher. The German had crashed at Stowe corner due to brake failure, breaking his leg. His championship hopes were all but over, and he had to miss six races. In quick time, Ferrari chose Schumi's replacement, Mika Salo, who had earlier in the year replaced an injured Ricardo Zonta at BAR.

Here, Irvine took a second successive victory as he chased the championship, aided by stand-in team-mate Mika Salo moving over to give him the lead. In the early laps Finnish drivers ran first and second with Mika Häkkinen, which Martin Brundle noted is "not bad for a nation of 5 million", until Häkkinen crashed out of the race.
