On his return from suspension the World Championship leader extends his advantage, as Mansell's comeback fizzles.
The folly of Jerez as a Grand Prix track was never better illustrated than on the afternoon of Sunday, October 16.
The sherry region's idea of a racetrack provided many of the safety facilities that were so conspicuously lacking when Martin Donnelly had his awful accident in 1990, the last time the F1 circus visited it, but one thing was desperately absent: anywhere to overtake. Like Jarama, it created follow-my-leader chasing, not racing.
