RaceEdit

Jacques Villeneuve won the race after Damon Hill's Arrows slowed on the final laps while in the lead. This was the closest Arrows had ever came to scoring a victory, after Hill had led most of the Grand Prix.

On lap 42, Giancarlo Fisichella, who was behind Michael Schumacher, tried to overtake Michael, but he spun out coming into the 1st corner. He got stuck in the gravel trap and would retire from the race.

At the final lap of the race, Eddie Irvine was pushed off by Shinji Nakano en route to a points finish. Nakano would eventually be 6th.
