Nigel Mansell's onboard camera captured one of the most famous first corner incidents of all time
Surely we’ve all seen the footage of Ayrton Senna ramming Alain Prost off the track at Suzuka in 1990 to win the championship, so here’s a slightly different view of the incident.
Nigel Mansell started third on the grid and slipped to fourth off the line, but he still had a great view of that infamous title-deciding moment. From then on Gerhard Berger charged off into the lead, but on the second lap he span off on debris from the Prost-Senna collision, which you can also see in this video.
Mansell continued to lead until he made his sole pitstop on lap 26, but as he left his box a driveshaft broke, leaving him stranded at the end of the pit lane and out of the race. That left Nelson Piquet and Roberto Moreno to score a 1-2 for Benetton, with local hero Aguri Suzuki finishing an incredible third for Larrousse.
