The 1993 Canadian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on June 13, 1993. It was the seventh round of the 1993 Formula One season.

There was a Noah's Ark ("two by two") formation in qualifying in Canada as the Williamses were ahead of the Benettons and the Ferraris. Prost took pole ahead of Hill, Schumacher, Patrese, Berger and Alesi. At the start, Hill beat off Prost while the Benettons were slow and were passed by Berger and the amazing Senna (who had already got ahead of Brundle and then Alesi). Hill was leading Prost, Berger, Senna, Schumacher and Patrese.

Senna was on a mission, passing Berger for third on lap 2. On lap 6, Prost took the lead from Hill. Soon afterwards, Schumacher passed Berger with Patrese following him through five laps later. The order stabilized at: Prost, Hill, Senna, Schumacher, Patrese and Berger.

During the mid-race stops, Hill had a problem and dropped behind Senna and Schumacher. Schumacher now set off after Senna. Senna, with Schumacher right behind, pushed his car too hard and his engine stalled. He was out. Prost won ahead of Schumacher, Hill, Berger, Brundle and Wendlinger.
