Mansell_1990_England_02_PHCWatch the chaos of F1 unfold at Suzuka from Nigel Mansell’s Ferrari!

This video winds the clock back to 1990, taking us onboard the Ferrari 641/2 of Nigel Mansell for a thrill ride with a screaming V12 soundtrack. Watch as the infamous first-corner collision between Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost unfolds in the opening moments of the Grand Prix, and the frustration experienced by Mansell later in the race when his own car is forced to retire with a broken driveshaft. Nelson Piquet would win the race, and Nigel would finish the season with a second-place finish in Australia during the following round.
