F1 could return to Africa for the first time since 1993 – when Ayrton Senna reignited his bitter feud with ‘coward’ Alain Prost, Britain’s Mark Blundell finished third… and Benetton Ford’s Michael Schumacher hadn’t even won a world title!

This season, the Formula One world championship will be contested across all continents but one. It has been a long 28 years since a race was last held on the continent. It was the first time the rivals shared the front row since their infamous collision in Suzuka three years earlier, when Senna deliberately collided with Prost to win the World Championship in the penultimate race of the season. Senna and Schumacher were engaged in a battle for second before the German spun out on lap 39 and was forced to retire from the race. Prost went onto dominate the rest of the season, winning seven of the 16 races to romp home to his fourth and final title. Morocco hosted the first ever F1 race in South Africa in 1958, when the sport visited Casablanca.
