The race in brief

Hill makes another blistering start and completes lap 1 over a second ahead of Coulthard, Schumacher, Berger, Hakkinen and a fast-starting Brundle.

Hakkinen’s race is shortlived as his McLaren is forced out on lap 4 with engine failure.

After having already radioed his pit for an early stop for fresh rubber to try and cure his oversteer, Coulthard slides wide at the chicane on lap 13, allowing Schumacher up to second.

Inoue’s race ends on lap 14. The Japanese driver exits his Footwork with flames licking at the rear of the car and runs to grab an extinguisher, only to be knocked down by a course car rushing to his aid. Luckily his injuries are fairly light.

Coulthard makes his first pit stop on lap 16 and drops to seventh.

Hill Schumacher stop on lap 17, as do Berger and Brundle, with Hill retaining the lead. Problems with Benetton’s refuelling rig mean that Schumacher only takes on 10 litres of fuel.
