Senna qualified on pole position, three-tenths ahead of Prost, now driving for Ferrari, who had the next most competitive package that year behind McLaren.
Senna requested to change the grid positions in order to move pole position to the cleaner left side of the road, where the racing line was.
This was granted, but Balestre stopped this and reverted the grid positions back to where they originally were, which meant pole position would be on the dirtier right side of the track, where all the bits of tire rubber that had been thrown from the tires by the Formula One cars, which meant he was off the racing line and worse, it would be more difficult for Senna to make a better start.
Senna and Prost were both unhurt, and neither driver bothered to check to see if the other was okay. Furious and disgusted, Prost later described Senna as "a man without value".
Prost did not win a race in his uncompetitive Ferrari that year and it turned out to be his last race for the Scuderia that year; he was fired from the team after the race while describing the as having handling like "a truck".
This was the last straw for Ferrari; as Prost had been making unsavory comments about the Italian team for some time.
Senna let his teammate Gerhard Berger through to win as a "thank you" gesture for his support all season. But during the post-race press conference, Senna then admitted that his actions in were indeed intentional, and he then called Balestre and the rest of the governing body "stupid people".
Hill crucially won the race ahead of Schumacher; Suzuka was hammered by a torrential downpour which made conditions very difficult for Hill as Schumacher was an acknowledged specialist in wet-weather conditions.
It had rained at the start; but the track was drying. Alesi went into the pits on lap seven, around the time everyone else came in.
The French driver began to lap Suzuka in his Ferrari 5 seconds faster than anyone else, and when he came out of the pits, he was 17th — but then over the course of 18 laps climbed to 2nd place, passing car after car while a number of the other cars changed to dry slick tyres.
But then Alesi had to serve a drive-through penalty for jumping the start. This did not stop the emotionally highly-strung Alesi: He then went into the pits and dropped to 13th from 8th as a result.
Then he had gone off in the last corner on lap 20 but recovered, and as a result dropped further down the order to 15th.
Just about all the runners had changed to dry slick tyres, and Alesi started to push hard again — and he was lapping the damp circuit 5 seconds faster than everyone else, and just about everybody had slick tyres on at this point.
He went from 15th to 9th in one lap and he got into 2nd again behind Schumacher, whom he had caught up to and battled with for the lead.
This remarkable performance was only to last 5 laps, however: The next 5 events were all won by Ferrari; Schumacher won in — and , and his teammate Rubens Barrichello won in Schumacher won his 3rd title at the event: Ferrari completed their domination of the season by reaching a total points tally of points on the then-used point scoring system.
At the event, Michael Schumacher endured one of the most trying races [ original research? The qualifying session for the event , which was due to be held on 9 October, was postponed until race day after a typhoon hit Suzuka.
This led to the idea of holding qualifying sessions on a Sunday morning an idea that was abandoned half-way through the following year.

At the event Schumacher led until an engine failure virtually ended his chances of an eighth championship, which went to Spaniard Fernando Alonso.
On 8 September , it was announced that Fuji will alternate the Japanese Grand Prix with Suzuka, starting from onwards.
Lewis Hamilton took the victory while his teammate Fernando Alonso crashed heavily. In , the first corner brought trouble for the McLarens and the Ferraris, and Fernando Alonso was able to take win in a Renault.
Felipe Massa was 7th after a penalty for a collision with title rival Lewis Hamilton, while Hamilton finished outside the points, having also served a penalty for an incident in the first corner.
In July , Toyota cited a global economic slump as the reason that the Japanese Grand Prix would not return to Fuji Speedway in and beyond.
The speedway argued, according to the Associated Press , that "continuing to host F1 races could threaten the survival of the company".
As a result, the Grand Prix was held at Suzuka, at which point it had been announced that Suzuka and Fuji were share the hosting duties. The helmet featured a design in the style of the Japanese flag, and he auctioned the helmet off afterwards to raise money for those caught in unfortunate circumstances during the times of the tsunami earlier that year.
