The race


Come Sunday, the paddock was woken up rather early with a heavy rainstorm which hit Adelaide. Come the warm-up session, the conditions had not improved, and a lot of drivers aquaplaned off the circuit, some on their out lap, notably Prost and Berger. Both drivers discussed not racing over safety concerns.

An hour before the race the conditions significantly worsened, and Prost and Berger's proposal was being seriously considered by a lot of drivers. Some though said they wanted to race, wanting to prove a point, especially Ayrton Senna. Prost and Berger's arguments failed and it was agreed the race would go ahead.

The lights went out before the grid had even properly lined up causing some confusion at the back. Prost got the jump on Senna at the start, but into the first corner, Senna braked significantly later, and regrabbed the lead, nearly hitting the Frenchmen. Further back, Martini fishtailed and Nannini overtook him for third. Other drivers who made a good start were de Cesaris and Brundle.

However on the first lap, Olivier Grouillard

 and Modena. But JJ Lehto's accident just after the first chicane partially blocked the road, causing the race to be stopped. While that was happening, Prost had pulled into the pits, withdrawing because of safety, before going on to criticise the race organisers for allowing the race to have been started in the first place.

As the cars waited on the grid, drivers argued whether the race should be restarted. The main drivers arguing for the race to be abandoned were Berger, Patrese, Piquet, Mansell and Nannini. Those arguing for the race to restart were Senna, Martini, Brundle, Jean Alesi

 also pressed the race organisers to restart the race. He would get his way.

The restart was minus Prost; Ron Dennis' persuasion techniques failing this time.

At the 2nd start, Larini stalled before he even made his grid slot, while Alesi started from the pit lane for stalling on the grid. At the front, Martini made a great a start to get level with Senna, but the Brazilian kept the lead by cutting across him. Everyone else kept order behind.

While Senna pulled away at impressive speed, the race became more of a guessing game as to who would go off. The Williamses both passed Nannini and Martini and started to match Senna's pace. The first retirement due to the weather was Arnoux, ending his career on a low. Berger and Alliot then collided at the East Terrace

Five laps later, Mansell spun out and then there was a major collision involving Piquet and Ghinzani. Piquet ran into the back of the Osella and one of Ghinzani's rear tires hit Piquet on the head, in a scary accident. Ghinzani was very lucky not to hit Martini.

Following these incidents the race was a gingerly affair, with drivers not driving to win but to stay on the circuit. The only major action was Satoru Nakajima
