Mansell 'thrilled' to be reunited with historic Williams and Ferrari cars

1992 Formula 1 World Champion Nigel Mansell will be reunited with the Williams FW14B that helped him to win nine of the 16 races that season.

Nigel Mansell will be reunited with his World Championship winning Williams FW14B at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed. The year marks 30 years since the British motorsport legend took his first and only title in Formula 1, a season in which he won nine of 16 races. He started the campaign in hot form, winning five on the bounce. He also claimed pole position on 14 occasions, 13 more than any other driver that season. Now he will drive the car up the famous hill at Goodwood. Looking ahead to the event on 23-24 June, Mansell said: "I'm thrilled to be coming to the Festival of Speed this year. "It's always a wonderful event and I'm looking forward to getting behind the wheel of some of my cars again and celebrating 30 years since my World Championship with all the Goodwood fans."

Mansell will also drive famous Ferraris and Lotus 91

Mansell will also get behind the wheel of some of his most famous Ferrari and Lotus cars during his time at the Festival of Speed, including the Lotus 91 that scored a podium in its first ever race. He will also drive the Ferrari 639 (a testing mule car that never raced) and the Ferrari 640 (1989), a car that guided him to two Grand Prix victories in a season that saw him finish on the podium in every race he made the chequered flag.
