The Canadian Grand Prix ended in farce as hundreds of fans burst through fences to celebrate the maiden win of Ferrari's Jean Alesi in his 91st race. He had taken the lead 12 laps from the end when Michael Schumacher's Benetton was forced to pit stuck in third gear. "When I took the lead I started to cry in the car," Alesi said. "I have never driven a car as good as the one I have this season. I have had some very good times with Ferrari, and some very bad times, and today all the bad times are forgotten."
