The last South African Grand Prix was held at Kyalami. Alain Prost scored took pole position, recorded the fastest lap, and won the race in his Williams Renault, despite a wobbly start which saw him beaten to the first corner by Ayrton Senna, Damon Hill and Michael Schumacher respectively. "It is very difficult to find the clutch," he said afterwards. "I was not very confident and I almost stalled the engine." It was also Mark Blundell's 100th grand prix start, and his first podium place. At the end there were just five cars running, mainly because of accidents caused by torrential rain. The unlucky Derek Warwick in an uncompetitive Footwork spun off when he only needed to cross the finishing line to claim a point.
