|description||Brundle, Verstappen and Irvine, fighting for seventh place, come up to lap Eric Bernard's Ligier. Brundle has a mechanical problem and his McLaren slowes. Bernard had to lift off and Irvine jinks to the left, straight into Verstappen, who tries to overtake. At over 300kph the Benetton wents on to the grass and veers right into and over Irvine, hitting Brundle as it goes. A rear wheel of the car actually hits Martin's helmet but everyone emerges unscathed.
The FIA penalizes Irvine with a 1-race ban and a 10000$ fine. After Jordan appealed the decision, the ban was increased to 3 races.
