1995 Japanese Grand Prix

The race in brief

Michael Schumacher leads Jean Alesi, Mika Hakkinen, Damon Hill, Eddie Irvine and David Coulthard at the start on a wet-but-drying circuit. Gianni Morbidelli makes it only as far as the first corner where he is hit by the Sauber of F1 returnee Karl Wendlinger. Roberto Morneo’s Forti is immediately in gearbox trouble, and retires at the end of lap1.

Alesi’s pursuit of the leader is halted on lap 5, when both Ferraris are given 10-second stop-go penalties for jumping the start. Coulthard overtakes Irvine for fifth position.
