Notes

  • First race: Andrea Chiesa, Paul Belmondo, Giovanna Amati, Ukyo Katayama, March
  • The McLaren team used the updated MP4/6B instead of MP4/7A in this race and the next race.
  • The Coloni team had been purchased by the Andrea Moda group and took the hopeless 1991 Coloni car to South Africa and both cars ran but did not pre-qualify. The cars were driven by Alex Caffi and Enrico Bertaggia.
  • Andrea Moda owner Andrea Sassetti was also informed that he had to pay a $100,000 fee to enter his new team but argued that he should not have to pay as he had purchased an existing team. He was forced to pay although the March and Fondmetal teams did not have to pay this when they purchased existing teams.
