The 1994 British Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held on 10 July, 1994 at the Silverstone Circuit, Silverstone. It was the 8th race of the 1994 Formula One season. It marked the halfway stage of the season. Damon Hill won the race, while second-place finisher Michael Schumacher was disqualified due to failing to serve a stop-go penalty (for overtaking Hill on the warm-up lap) in time.
Several British drivers had a bad day. David Coulthard stalled on the grid at the original start, forcing him to start from the back of the grid - he fought back to finish 5th. Eddie Irvine's car broke down on the second warm-up lap. Martin Brundle didn't last much longer - his car disappeared under a cloud of smoke as the race started, due to a clutch failure.
Mika Häkkinen and Rubens Barrichello collided while battling for what was then 4th place at the final corner. Barrichello instinctively pulled his damaged car into the pits, without realising that he was on the final lap. This allowed Häkkinen to limp over the finish line before Barrichello reached it, despite his car being more severely damaged.
Behind them, Ukyo Katayama scored what proved to be his final point.
