Not a day to look back on fondly for the Williams pit crew as they ruined Damon Hill's hopes of a 1-2 with Alain Prost when they botched a pit stop at the Canadian Grand Prix. As Hill, who was in second, came in for a tyre change, the crew realised too late they had the wrong specification replacements ready and the delay allowed Michael Schumacher to nip past. Hill made the podium after Ayrton Senna was forced to retire six laps from the end with alternator trouble. "I was surprised to see the mechanics rushing round to look for tyres," Hill admitted.
