Nigel Mansell CBE

The route to complete success is never easy and Nigel Mansell overcame more hurdles than most; including limited finances and serious injuries. Sheer grit, determination and self belief coupled with his driving skills ensured that his ambition was bound to become reality. Nigel became a fully fledged F1 driver with the Lotus team. He received his first podium win after just 5 races - a sign of things to come!

Just 4 years laer in 1985, Brands Hatch saw his first win. A year later in Adelaide the tyre of the Williams Honda exploded costing him a race finish - and more importantly the coveted World Championship by a single point.

1998 saw Nigel in the scarlet red car - number 27 Ferrari. He was the last driver to be picked by Enso Ferari and this proved to be a wise choice for the late team owner. Nigel was nicknamed II Leone for his agressiveness on the race track winning on his first time out for the Italian team in Brazil - a truly memorable race weekend.

Nigel returned to the Williams team in 1991 with the soul goal of winning the World Championships.The 91 season was successful and the following year in Hungary on the 16th August - his daughter Chloe's birthday - he won the long awaited moment; to stand on the podium as the 1992 Formula 1 World Champion. Has Formula 1 been the same since?
