  1996 Australian Grand Prix Race details Race 1 of 16 in the 1996 Formula One season Date 10 March 1996 Location Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit, Melbourne, Australia Course Temporary street circuit 5.302 km (3.308 mi) Distance 58 laps, 307.516 km (191.383 mi) Weather Dry Pole position Driver Jacques Villeneuve Williams-Renault Time 1:32.371 Fastest lap Driver Jacques Villeneuve Williams-Renault Time 1:33.421 on lap 27 Podium First Damon Hill Williams-Renault Second Jacques Villeneuve Williams-Renault Third Eddie Irvine Ferrari The 1996 Australian Grand Prix was a Formula One race held on 10 March 1996 at Melbourne. It was the first time this race was held in Melbourne since 1984, taking over from Adelaide as the host of the Australian Grand Prix. It was the first time the Australian World Championship round had been held at the site of a previous Australian Grand Prix venue, albeit on a vastly different circuit, with the surrounds of the Albert Park Lake having played host to the Australian Grand Prix in 1953 and 1958.

Taki Inoue was scheduled to race for the Minardi team as a pay driver but when no money materialised prior to the race he was replaced by Fisichella.[1] Marlboro had expressed interest in Fisichella running early on.[2] The race was the first to use the new race-start system, still used in Formula 1 today.[3] replacing the old red to green light system. Under the new system, five red lights would come on at one second intervals, starting after the last driver reached his grid box. There would then be a pre-determined pause, and then the five lights would go off simultaneously.[4] This system was partially designed to try and eliminate some of the problems caused by drivers stalling on the grid, which in the past, had often led to start line crashes.[citation needed] This was also the first race to have a single qualifying session on Saturday afternoon; the Friday session had been dropped for 1996. Qualifying Jacques Villeneuve,making his début in Formula One, took pole position. Race summary It was an all-Williams front row with Damon Hill and debutante Jacques Villeneuve in the blue and white Rothmans cars dominating the race. On the first lap, Martin Brundle in the gold Benson & Hedges Jordan had a spectacular barrel roll into a sand trap at turn 3 where the car actually broke in two, causing the race to be restarted. Brundle was unhurt.[5] David Coulthard's McLaren and Johnny Herbert's Sauber—both cars Brundle ran into the back of and launched off—were also damaged. Brundle and Coulthard started the restarted race in their backup cars from the pits; Herbert did not take the restart, the spare car being taken by Heinz-Harald Frentzen, whose car had stopped on the warmup lap with a technical problem. Brundle later spun off after light contact with Pedro Diniz at the restart. The race was marked by dominance from Jacques Villeneuve, who led most of the race but had his debutante run marred by an oil leak late in the race. Hill caught and passed Villeneuve, who caked Hill's car with oil leakage. Damon Hill took his 14th Grand Prix victory, equaling his father Graham Hill's overall number of wins. Hill took back to back Australian victories, the previous race being the last round of 1995, in Adelaide. In the end, the podium was Hill-Villeneuve-Irvine. Forti Both Fortis did not make the race due to the new 107% rule for qualifying, which said any car that qualified 107% slower than the pole time (1:38.837 in this race) would be excluded. Incidentally, the team had logged its best result of 7th one race ago at the season-ending 1995 Australian Grand Prix[6] The measure was introduced to ensure teams were fast enough to race, and not just mobile chicanes.[7] Classification Qualifying Pos No Driver Constructor Time Gap 1 6 Jacques Villeneuve Williams-Renault 1:32.371 2 5 Damon Hill Williams-Renault 1:32.509 +0.138 3 2 Eddie Irvine Ferrari 1:32.889 +0.518 4 1 Michael Schumacher Ferrari 1:33.125 +0.754 5 7 Mika Häkkinen McLaren-Mercedes 1:34.054 +1.683 6 3 Jean Alesi Benetton-Renault 1:34.257 +1.886 7 4 Gerhard Berger Benetton-Renault 1:34.344 +1.973 8 11 Rubens Barrichello Jordan-Peugeot 1:34.474 +2.103 9 15 Heinz-Harald Frentzen Sauber-Ford 1:34.494 +2.123 10 19 Mika Salo Tyrrell-Yamaha 1:34.832 +2.461 11 9 Olivier Panis Ligier-Mugen-Honda 1:35.330 +2.959 12 17 Jos Verstappen Footwork-Hart 1:35.338 +2.967 13 8 David Coulthard McLaren-Mercedes 1:35.351 +2.980 14 14 Johnny Herbert Sauber-Ford 1:35.453 +3.082 15 18 Ukyo Katayama Tyrrell-Yamaha 1:35.715 +3.344 16 21 Giancarlo Fisichella Minardi-Ford 1:35.898 +3.527 17 20 Pedro Lamy Minardi-Ford 1:36.109 +3.738 18 16 Ricardo Rosset Footwork-Hart 1:36.198 +3.827 19 12 Martin Brundle Jordan-Peugeot 1:36.286 +3.915 20 10 Pedro Diniz Ligier-Mugen-Honda 1:36.298 +3.927 DNQ 22 Luca Badoer Forti-Ford 1:39.202 +6.831 DNQ 23 Andrea Montermini Forti-Ford 1:42.087 +9.716 Race Pos No Driver Constructor Laps Time/Retired Grid Points 1 5 Damon Hill Williams-Renault 58 1:32:50.4 2 10 2 6 Jacques Villeneuve Williams-Renault 58 +38.020 1 6 3 2 Eddie Irvine Ferrari 58 +1:02.571 3 4 4 4 Gerhard Berger Benetton-Renault 58 +1:17.037 7 3 5 7 Mika Häkkinen McLaren-Mercedes 58 +1:35.071 5 2 6 19 Mika Salo Tyrrell-Yamaha 57 +1 Lap 10 1 7 9 Olivier Panis Ligier-Mugen-Honda 57 +1 Lap 11   8 15 Heinz-Harald Frentzen Sauber-Ford 57 +1 Lap 9   9 16 Ricardo Rosset Footwork-Hart 56 +2 Laps 18   10 10 Pedro Diniz Ligier-Mugen-Honda 56 +2 Laps 20   11 18 Ukyo Katayama Tyrrell-Yamaha 55 +3 Laps 15   Ret 20 Pedro Lamy Minardi-Ford 42 Safety belt 17   Ret 1 Michael Schumacher Ferrari 32 Brakes 4   Ret 21 Giancarlo Fisichella Minardi-Ford 32 Clutch 16   Ret 11 Rubens Barrichello Jordan-Peugeot 29 Engine 8   Ret 8 David Coulthard McLaren-Mercedes 24 Throttle 13   Ret 17 Jos Verstappen Footwork-Hart 15 Engine 12   Ret 3 Jean Alesi Benetton-Renault 9 Collision 6   Ret 12 Martin Brundle Jordan-Peugeot 1 Collision 19   Ret 14 Johnny Herbert Sauber-Ford 0 Collision 14   Standings after Grand Prix Bold text indicates who still has a theoretical chance of becoming World Champion.
