Schumacher raced 'chassis 211' to victory in Monaco, his last in the Principality, and also Hungary, where he clinched the 2001 title, his fourth of seven crowns.

Schumacher claimed nine race victories en route to the 2001 title, scoring almost double the number of points of nearest rival David Coulthard (McLaren).
