Mansell was a spectacular racer who fought hard but fairly on track, and he won 31 races in his tremendous career, which spanned from 1980 to 1995. He entered 192 races in the World Championship and started 187 with Lotus (1980-1984), Williams (1985-1988, 1991, 1992, 1994), Ferrari (1989-1990) and McLaren (1995).
He finished on the podium 59 times and when he won nine races in 1992, he became the single-season record-holder for most wins in a year, breaking F1’s previous record, set by Ayrton Senna in 1988 (eight wins). Since then, Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel posted a new record in 2004 and 2013, respectively, with 13 wins in a single campaign.
Mansell retired from F1 after winning the title in 1992, and went to the US to win the CART title in 1993 (today’s Indycar). He returned to F1 in 1994 with Williams and won the 1994 Australian Grand Prix for his last win in F1. Among British drivers, Mansell is second in terms of wins (31) behind Lewis Hamilton.
Mansell had strong rivalries with Brazil’s three-time World Champions Ayrton Senna and Nelson Piquet, and also four-time World Champion Alain Prost during the mid-1980s and the early 1990s. The Englishman’s best win in Formula 1 came in the 1987 British Grand Prix at Silverstone, when he beat his teammate Piquet with a late overtake.
