Both Prost and Hill were struggling. Handicapped by some poorly judged rear wing adjustments made at their first stops, they were also beset by problems when it came to matching the engine revs correctly as the semi-automatic gearboxes changed down for the corners. Hill finished the day a strong second ahead of Prost, but Frank Williams was critical of the Frenchman. ‘It is obvious that Alain made a very clever tactical (first) change onto dry tyres, but threw it away with a vastly premature switch back to wets, and that was the rest of the race.
