1993 Hungarian Grand Prix
The 1993 Hungarian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Hungaroring on 15 August 1993. It was the eleventh round of the 1993 Formula One season. It marked the first victory of Damon Hill, after he had retired while leading the last two races (on the penultimate lap in Germany). He became the first son of a World Champion to win a race himself. Riccardo Patrese scored his final podium finish, and Derek Warwick his final points, while Gerhard Berger scored his only podium of the season. Alain Prost stalled on the warm-up lap and had to start from the back of the grid. He subsequently lost several laps while the team replaced the car's rear wing - giving an interview for French television while the team worked on the car.
As usual, the two Williamses were 1-2 in qualifying in Hungary with Prost on pole ahead of Hill, Schumacher, Senna, Patrese and Berger.
Prost stalled on the parade lap, and had to start at the back. At the start, Schumacher got pushed down by Senna, Berger (who was already ahead of Patrese) and Patrese. Hill was leading Senna, Berger, Patrese, Schumacher and Alesi.
Schumacher tried to pass Berger on lap 4 but spun and dropped back to 10th. Both McLarens had throttle problems, Andretti slowing down in front of Schumacher on lap 16 and making Schumacher spin again, dropping down to 14th, right behind the recovering Prost. Senna also retired on lap 18 with throttle problems as everyone pitted except the Williamses and Schumacher. This left Hill ahead of Patrese, Prost, Schumacher, Berger and Alesi.
Then, Prost had to go into the pits because of problems with his rear wing. He rejoined seven laps behind. On lap 23, Alesi spun off and retired as Patrese waved through Schumacher who took second. However, he retired three laps later with fuel pump problems. Berger pitted from third and rejoined in fifth but he quickly passed Brundle and then Warwick to get back third. Hill took his first ever win ahead of Patrese, Berger, Warwick, Brundle and Wendlinger.
