Michael qualified 3rd behind the Williams for the 1996 Japanese Grand Prix. While he was 1 second off the pole time, the race was a different story, as he capitalized on an early mistake by pole sitter Jacques Villenueve, overtook Mika Hakkinen, and had a late charge for victory, but eventually finished 2nd. His 2nd place secured 2nd place for Ferrari in the Constructors Championship.
