The two most senior energetic drivers present at the 1994 San Marino Huge Prix weekend had been Andrea de Cesaris and Michele Alboreto – each and every of whom accomplished a predominant profession milestone at the an identical venue 13 years earlier. The 1981 San Marino Huge Prix seen Alboreto’s debut in Components 1 and de Cesaris’ first ever parts pause.
For the final note other man from that season to also compete in 1994, Nigel Mansell, this plug changed into as soon as the sole occurrence in his profession the place aside had to withdraw his entry sooner than qualifying (as a result of Lotus 88 being deemed illegal and Colin Chapman arguing that the Lotus 81 wasn’t competitive any longer). Which wasn’t slightly factual yet, on story of Mansell scored his first profession podium at the following plug, the Belgian Huge Prix.
What’s also noticeable is that de Cesaris and Alboreto each and every died in automobile-connected accidents after having retired from Components 1 – Alboreto being killed in a Lausitzring checking out break faded 45 and de Cesaris perishing from a bike accident on a motorway faded 55. Both are the most up-to-date former Components 1 drivers to pass away in their 40s and 50s, respectively, and the final note other drivers other than Ratzenberger and Senna to believe competed in that fateful plug weekend and also having lost their lives since.
