Senna and Mansell were not the only new drivers to run near the front – Stefan Bellof, running in the only naturally aspirated car in the race, finished third and had been closing on both Senna and Prost. Bellof had qualified 20th and last in his Tyrrell 012-Cosworth. His drive from last to third was a stand-out achievement in his tragically short career, and is often overshadowed by the now legendary drive by Senna.
