Notes

*Pole position: Alain Prost - 1:15.866
*Fastest lap: Michael Schumacher - 1:20.024 on lap 61
*This race saw the first modern-day use of the pace car in Formula One, after Aguri Suzuki and Ukyo Katayama crashed on start/finish line in a separate incidents. Few moments later, race leader Alain Prost hit the spinning car of Christian Fittipaldi, leaving the track strewn with wreckage. Prost's team-mate Damon Hill therefore lost a big lead, and was passed by Ayrton Senna shortly after the restart. The race still saw Damon's first points and podium.
*The race saw Alessandro Zanardi's only Formula One World Championship point, and the last time both Lotus cars scored points in a race.
*This was the last time a Brazilian driver would win the Brazilian Grand Prix until Felipe Massa would win it in 2006 for Ferrari. Rubens Barrichello would be competitive in this race multiple times throughout his career but never won this race despite his six years with the Italian team.
*This was the 100th Grand Prix win for the McLaren F1 team.
