The 1993 German Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Hockenheim on 25 July 1993. It was the tenth round of the 1993 Formula One season. It saw Alain Prost score his final Formula One victory, after team-mate Damon Hill was denied a first win by a tyre problem on the penultimate lap. Ayrton Senna spun at the first chicane, but fought back to finish 4th.

The Williamses were 1-2 in qualifying with Prost on pole ahead of Hill, Schumacher, Senna, Blundell and Brundle. At the start, Prost was poor as usual and was passed by Hill and Schumacher. Senna spun, dropping to the back but gained one place immediately when Brundle spun as well at the chicane, dropping to the back, behind Senna. Hill led Schumacher, Prost, Blundell, Patrese and Aguri Suzuki into lap 2.

Prost was on a charge, passing Schumacher on lap 6. He closed up on Hill three laps later. Behind, on the next lap, Berger tried to pass Suzuki and they collided, with Suzuki spinning off. Yellow flags were waved and Hill slowed down a little on the next lap. Prost took his chance and passed Hill to lead. However, he was given a stop-go penalty for the manoeuver, and dropped back to fifth and was stuck behind Patrese.

The Williamses and Senna did not pit unlike the rest, and Hill was left 15 seconds ahead of Prost with Senna up to seventh. The Brazilian soon passed Berger for sixth and then Patrese for fifth three laps later. Hill's lead was reduced to 8 seconds by the penultimate lap and Prost had given up on the win when Hill's left rear tyre punctured, spinning him out. Prost won ahead of Schumacher, Blundell, Senna, Patrese and Berger.
