Bring Back V10s: Was this Mansell’s greatest F1 win?

1 min read

Nigel Mansell achieved 31 grand prix wins in his Formula 1 career, five of them hugely popular home triumphs and a then-record nine in his dominant championship season in 1992.

But were any of them as impressive as what he did in the 1989 Hungarian GP?

Andrew van de Burgt, Sam Smith and Glenn Freeman consider that in the latest episode of our Bring Back V10s classic F1 stories podcast.

That sensational Hungaroring win from 12th on the grid, with an epic pass on Ayrton Senna along the way, was perhaps the high point of Mansell’s Ferrari career.

And the element that would begin to end that love affair was brewing that weekend too, as speculation over Alain Prost’s 1990 destination escalated…

Flavio Briatore’s rise to power at Benetton and preparations for Porsche’s spectacularly unsuccessful F1 return are among the other topics revisited.
