Formula 1 On This Day….

Posted: 01/03/2010 in Formula 1

On this day in 1992 Nigel mansell laid down a marker to the rest of the paddock with his dominant performance in the South African GP at Kyalami. No one had come near him in qualifying and in the race he sprinted away to win from Riccardo Patrese, his temmate in the other Williams-Renault. It was a snapshot of how the rest of the season would play out with Mansell finally winning the World Championship after coming so close three times before.
