The great Michael Schumacher won more than 70 Grands Prix for Ferrari in his 11 years driving for the Scuderia, but it all started with a remarkable victory mid-way through his first year with the team.

The 1996 Ferrari F310 was ultimately no match for that season's class of the field, the Williams FW18, but at that year's Spanish Grand Prix the heavens opened and Schumacher was able to deploy his legendary wet weather skills to haul the car to the chequered flag in first place.

And you can watch every lap of his masterful performance in the video above in the latest of our classic Grand Prix re-runs.
