This race was a tale of two Ferraris: Jody Scheckter claimed his first race win for the Prancing Horse in the year he would win the title, while team-mate Gilles Villeneuve wowed the crowd after storming from last to third after an early tangle with Clay Regazzoni.

Featured Driver Jos Verstappen
Verstappen entered F1 in 1994 as Michael Schumacher's team-mate at Benetton after JJ Lehto suffered an injury, a year in which he survived a pit fire in Germany and took his two career podiums. However, he never lived up to his early promise during frustrating stints at the likes of Simtek, Arrows and Stewart. Verstappen's son Max is due to race for Toro Rosso in 2015.
