Notes[edit]

  • Lap leaders: Riccardo Patrese 31 (1-31), Nigel Mansell 40 (32-71)
  • The Andrea Moda saga continued when Roberto Moreno failed to pre qualify and his team mate Perry McCarthy was not allowed to compete as he did not have a superlicence.
  • Alex Caffi and Enrico Bertaggia had left the Andrea Moda team with Moreno and McCarthy coming in although Bertaggia did try to get the seat back later in the season.
  • Gabriele Tarquini set the third fastest lap of the race in the normally uncompetitive Fondmetal[1]
  • A poor race for the McLaren team by using the new MP4/7A, with both cars retired before a quarter of the race was over.
  • Last female appearance in F1 until Susie Wolff completed 4 laps for Williams in Free Practice 1 for the 2014 British Grand Prix.
  • Michele Alboreto scored his first point in nearly 3 years.

Standings after the race[edit]

  • Note: Only the top five positions are included for both sets of standings.
