The 2006 European Grand Prix was the fifth race of the 2006 Formula One World Championship. It was held on the weekend of May 5th–7th 2006 at the Nürburgring. Franck Montagny made his Formula One debut, becoming the first French F1 driver in 18 months.

The qualifying session was affected by a red flag situation appearing on the timing monitors with 3 1/2 minutes left. Unfortunately, this was due to a timing glitch, and the session was quickly restarted. Christian Klien felt that he lost out through it, having abandoned a lap thinking it they would not count. Initially Jacques Villeneuve was outside the top 16, however the time for his lap (which he continued on during the red flag) was later recalled and placed him 7th in the session.
