Artemio Matarazzo wrote:The extra power of the V12 really helps, as I much faster on the straights than in the previous two years. The car felt OK all weekend, and I found the best setup and racing lines quite early on. In the race I got off the line pretty quick, but while attempting to overtake Martini on lap 2 I hit his rear slightly and damaged my front wing. The early pitstop dropped me down to 25th, only ahead of Nakajima who had also collided on the same lap and needed similar repairs. However, I started catching people in front of me quite quickly and at the end of lap 9 I made my first of many overtakes by passing Bernard. 10 laps later, I accidentally hit Capelli's rear wheel and forced him into retirement (I hope the stewards aren't mad at me this time...), also slightly damaging my front suspension in the process. Another 10 laps later, I was already in 9th position when I overestimated how fast I could go through Peraltada in my damaged car, went wide on the exit and hit the barrier. And that was it, the car was still running but even I can't drive with just one rear wheel...

Artemio Matarazzo wrote:What a race! I quickly managed to adapt to the new track layout in the qualifying sessions, and managed to keep improving my times slightly. In the race I got off to a good start and was up to 11th after the first lap. I kept passing cars almost every lap until I saw red - literally, as it was none other than Alain Prost ahead of me! Ahead of him was Jean Alesi, who in turn was stuck behind Nelson Piquet. After a long battle I eventually managed to force myself past Prost at Brooklands, and suddenly there I was. A Raging Bull between two Prancing Horses. Alesi proved to be a bit easier to overtake, although I had to lock up my front left to finish the move in the corner before Club. I was then onto Piquet, who inexplicably slowed down considerably between Bridge and Priory. I had nowhere to go so I hit his behind, but luckily escaped with only front wing damage. As the pits were nearby I didn't lose a horrible amount of time either, and in an effort to regain lost positions I switched to the softer tyre compound during the pit stop. After that I started carving my way through the field again, which got a bit tougher after a couple of laps when I banged wheels with Bertrand Gachot during an overtake and damaged the steering slightly. But I soldiered on and slowly started to creep up the standings again, helped by others having to pit in as well.

By lap 23 I was already back in 6th place - the position I was in before the collision with Piquet 10 laps earlier. After this things started to settle down, as my gap in both directions was fairly long. For over 20 laps the only thing I had to worry about was getting around lapped cars safely. Then Prost's tyres started to fade, and I started to catch him at such rate that by the time he finally pitted on lap 46, I was able to jump him and gain a substantial safety margin as well. A few laps later Patrese's attempt at lapping Comas ended up in a collision, and I was up to 4th! With 10 laps to go the gap between me and Prost started to shrink at an alarming rate as he was on fresh tyres while mine had long since lost their best edge. As the gap was way too small to afford another pit stop I decided to attempt holding on to the end. I'm quite certain I've never had to wrestle with a car as much as I had in those last few laps as the tyres were so worn out. But persistence proved fruitful as I just barely managed to cross the finish line before Prost. 4th place finish and another three points!
