Heinz-Harald Frentzen suffered a brake failure and had a massive crash with four laps to go. Frentzen was unhurt, but his crash caused this contest to be the first ever F1 race to finish behind the safety car .
The safety car was deployed four times in the race, which was a record at the time.
The safety car returned to the track again when Ricardo Zonta hit what is now famously known as the "Wall of Champions".
Damon Hill and Michael Schumacher also slammed into the same wall before Jacques Villeneuve crashed there bringing out the safety car a third time.
