The 1994 European Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held on October 16, 1994 at the Circuito Permanente de Jerez, Jerez, Spain. It was the fourteenth race of the 1994 Formula One season.

History[edit]

This race originally was to be return of the Argentine Grand Prix, but those plans were aborted May 1994 as the track, which was undergoing modernization since 1991, was not finished yet. The FIA moved the race to Jerez and named it the European Grand Prix midseason.[1] The series went to Argentina the following year for the 1995 Argentine Grand Prix.
