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.
