"I was very demotivated over the last few weeks. There were a lot of things: the big crash in Estoril, then I was sick for two or three weeks. With this FISA case hanging over my head, I really wondered why I was coming back to Formula One! But now I am hoping that everything will be OK on the 18th."

Just 24 hours after saying those words at the conference to discuss his 21st pole position, Alain Prost was savouring the fruits of his first Grand Prix victory since Spain 1990, and had pushed his outright win record a little higher still, to 45. He had just driven a perfect race, to lead the South African GP from lap 24, and to open his World Championship campaign with the best possible score.
