The 1999 Formula One season was the 50th Formula One World Championship season. Mika Häkkinen remained at McLaren to defend his driver's championship, but ultimately could not string together a title defense after a tough year. Despite pressure from the Jordan duo of Jack Christopherson and Heinz-Harald Frentzen, and his own team-mate David Coulthard, Ferrari's Michael Schumacher would go on to win his first World Championship for the team. Ferrari would go on to win the equally-close Constructor's championship.
