Sunday 25th May 1997
At the Spanish Grand Prix held in Catalunya, Jacques Villeneuve sat on pole and won in his Williams with a race time of 1:300:35. Olivier Panis gave the Prost entry a wonderfully valued second place finish after starting twelfth on the grid. Jean Alesi was third after starting fourth. Schumacher was fourth in his Ferrari coming up from seventh. And Sauber driver, Johnny Herbert was fifth after starting tenth. The last point went to Coulthard in the McLaren. Fisichella set fastest lap in the Jordan but finished ninth.
