On This Day


Sunday 30th April 1995

Damon Hill driving a Williams-Renault FW17 won the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola. Following the deaths of Roland Ratzenberger and Ayrton Senna at Imola the previous year, the track was heavily modified for 1995. New chicanes were built at Tamburello and Villeneuve corners, Aqua Minerale chicane was removed and replaced by a right-hand corner, Rivazza was eased and the final corner became a single chicane, rather than the 5th-gear sweep previously. Damon Hill's victory at the track at which his teammate Senna died a year earlier was an emotional one.
