On This Day in 1993: F1 European Grand Prix

On This Day 28 years ago, the famous Formula 1 European Grand Prix took place at Donington Park, UK!

Alain Prost (Williams-Renault) started from pole position, while Senna (McLaren-Ford) had only qualified 4th.

Story of the opening laps:

"At the green light, Prost and Hill accelerated away cleanly and forged into Redgate in commanding style, Senna's challenge momentarily blunted as Schumacher edged him up the kerb on the left, opening a gap through which Wendlinger was only too pleased to insert his Sauber to take a fleeting third place. But Ayrton's blue touch paper was well and truly alight and what followed was the most sensational opening lap in recent F1 history.

Momentarily wrong-footed by the Benetton, Senna dodged round the back of Schumacher to take fourth place as the two cars accelerated out of Redgate. He sliced past Wendlinger on the outside of the Craner Curves and forced his way round an admittedly obliging Hill as they climbed towards McLeans. Through Coppice, down the return straight and through the chicane onto the new loop, Senna was now gobbling up Prost's advantage and, as they braked for the Melbourne Hairpin, he slithered past on the inside to take the lead.

By the time he scrambled through the tight left-hander out onto the startline straight and slammed across the timing line he was 0.6 second ahead of his arch-rival, with Hill hanging on gamely in third. Remarkably, fourth place was now in the custody of Rubens Barrichello's Jordan, the 20-year-old Brazilian having capitalised on the misfortunes of others to head Alesi's Ferrari, Schumacher, Berger, Herbert and Patrese."
