Game, Set And Mansell
Pole by two seconds, the lead throughout and a string of fastest laps; nothing could stop Nigel Mansell on home ground
Nigel Mansell gave the British spectators precisely what they craved at Silverstone on July 12 — and nearly got a lot more than he bargained for as he crossed the start/finish line after 59 totally dominant laps.
The Briton had driven the almost perfect race. Only the first few hundred yards escaped his total control, as he spun his rear tyres a fraction more than team-mate Riccardo Patrese and the Italian sprinted ahead.
