Mansell reunited with championship-winning FW14B

1992 Formula 1 World Champion Nigel Mansell was met with a special surprise at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on the weekend, when his former Williams F1 team presented him with his title-winning car, the FW14B.

On the 30th anniversary of his championship-winning year, Mansell drove his dominant contender on a parade lap of the famous hill climb, to be greeted by thousands of fans when he returned and climbed onto the balcony. "I'm incredibly honoured to be here at Goodwood in my anniversary year and not only to see this car again, but to make the journey up this hill has been a very special moment for Williams and myself," he said. "I am thrilled to be here with the team, and it was great to be back behind the wheel of this exceptional race car. "It's been a very emotional moment to drive in front of the fans from all over the world and a memory I am going to cherish."

A record-setting season for Mansell

Mansell claimed the 1992 title after nine wins from a 16-race season, which was a record at the time, starting the year in fine form by taking the first five victories in a row. The British racer set other records that year, including most wins from pole position (nine) and the highest percentage of pole positions in a season at 88 per cent. These records remain in place today. Mansell raced in the pinnacle of Motorsports for 15 years and took the chequered flag in first place a total of 31 times, standing on the podium 59 times over the course of his F1 career. After leaving F1, Mansell joined the CART IndyCar series in America the following year, claiming the title in his debut season.
