Hungaroring 1993.

The two Williams took the front row of the grid, with Alain Prost on pole ahead of Damon Hill, Schumacher, Senna, Patrese and Berger.

Prost stalled on the parade lap, and had to start from the back and later lost several laps due to a faulty rear wing.

After retiring from the lead in the previous two races, Hill did not let his chance pass and finally took his first Formula One victory, becoming the first son of a World Champion to win a race himself.

Riccardo Patrese finished second in the Benetton-Ford, achieving his final podium finish, with Gerhard Berger third in a Ferrari.

In 1996, Damon Hill became World Champion.
