Third place driver Michael Schumacher

The 2005 Formula One season was the 56th FIA Formula One season, contested over a then record 19 Grands Prix. The season commenced on March 6, 2005 in Australia, and finished on October 16, 2005 in China.

Fernando Alonso won the World Drivers' Championship, and the team ehe drove for, Renault, won the World Constructors' Championship, ending five years of dominance from Michael Schumacher and Ferrari.

Alonso became the youngest World Champion in the history of the sport, at the age of 24 years and 58 days, beating Emerson Fittipaldi's 33-year-old record by over 1 and a half years.

This was the last season in which Minardi, BAR and Jordan all competed; and last season that Sauber would compete in before 2011.

NotesEdit

†Five teams (McLaren, Red Bull, Toyota, Jordan and Minardi) ran a third car in free practice sessions, as per the regulations for 2005. Sauber were entitled to also do so, but elected not to. These cars, numbered 35-40 were ineligible to compete in the race.

*The fourteen cars run by the Michelin-based teams withdrew from the United States Grand Prix (round 9) on tyre-safety grounds following a high-speed accident for Ralf Schumacher in free practice.

‡Neither BAR driver competed in the Spanish Grand Prix or Monaco Grand Prix (rounds 5 and 6) due to a two-race ban imposed at the San Marino Grand Prix, where their cars had been found to be deliberately underweight.

ChangesEdit

Team ChangesEdit

  • Jaguar was sold to Austrian energy drink company Red Bull, which formed the team Red Bull Racing.
  • Jordan was sold to Midland Group at the start of the season, but they continued under the Jordan name for the 2005 season.
