Changes from last seasonEdit

Several driver and team changes occurred prior to the start of the 1993 Season. These included reigning champion Nigel Mansell moving to IndyCar in the United States, leaving the number 1 car unoccupied for 1993. As a result, reigning Constructors Champions, Williams, used the numbers 0 and 2 instead. As a result of the withdrawal of March, car numbers 16 to 18 were also left vacant.
