A track official who saw the spectacular accident said: 'Prost was complaining afterwards about his left shoulder. But his condition gave no cause for concern.' Prost apparently lost control on a bend, slammed into the safety barriers, rebounded and then hit the barriers a second time. 'The rear wheel and suspension were completely destroyed. The driver managed to climb out of the car, just before it caught fire,' the official said.
Earlier, Prost's team-mate, Damon Hill, had produced faster lap times than the Frenchman.Reuse content
