The race in brief
The start is marred by a horrific incident which sees Ukyo Katayama's Tyrrell ride over Luca Badoer's Minardi and cartwheel high into the air. The Japanese driver is initially knocked unconscious, but is awake and talking by the time he is helicoptered to hospital, where he is detained for observation.
Although he held Michael Schumacher at bay at the first start, Damon Hill loses out at the re-start, the championship contenders following the pole-sitting Williams of David Coulthard. Johnny Herbert's Benetton runs fifth, between the Ferraris of Gerhard Berger and Jean Alesi. Massimiliano Paps fails to start with a gearbox problem.
