Il debutto di un motore Lamborghini in Formula 1 risale al 1989, quando la scelta del team Larrousse cadde sul marchio italiano per la fornitura dei motori V12 per la stagione. Piquet giunse secondo per la quarta volta consecutiva, davanti a Senna e Nakajima. A Monaco il brasiliano vinse dopo che Mansell, in testa dall'inizio della corsa, si era dovuto ritirare per un problema tecnico nel corso del trentesimo giro. The final World Championship points went to Jonathan Palmer (Tyrrell) in fourth place, Yannick Dalmas (Larrousse Lola) in fifth and Roberto Moreno (AGS) in sixth. Piquet had led for most of the afternoon but in the closing laps, with the home crowd roaring him on and having pitted for a fresh set of tires (Piquet had decided to go the entire distance on one set), Mansell closed up on Piquet and at Stowe Corner on lap 63 of 65 Mansell went ahead of his rival with a stunning passing maneuver. Senna pitted because of handling trouble and so Prost went into the lead and when he stopped for new tyres Boutsen briefly led before Piquet went back into the lead before his second stop. Mansell quickly retook second from Prost and closed up on Piquet but overtaking was another issue until Piquet made a mistake and ran wide on lap 46 and Mansell went ahead. A disappointed Berger was second with Piquet third, Fabi fourth, Johansson fifth and Cheever sixth. Per la classifica costruttori, invece, tutti i punti sono validi. Piquet took pole position with Mansell a tenth behind him but Ayrton Senna was beaten the third place by Gerhard Berger's Ferrari. On lap 71 of 76 Mansell's car lost its right rear wheel nut and he was forced to retire, and victory went to Piquet- this was a major blow to Mansell's championship hopes. La stagione 1988 del Campionato Mondiale FIA di Formula 1 è stata, nella storia della categoria, la 39ª ad assegnare il Campionato Piloti, vinto da Ayrton Senna (90 punti), e la 30ª ad assegnare il Campionato Costruttori, vinto dalla McLaren (199 punti). By the time he was back on the track Piquet was in the lead. The Osella team expanded to two cars with the Swiss Franco Forini joining Alex Caffi. Points towards the 1987 FIA Formula One World Championship for Drivers were awarded on a 9-6-4-3-2-1 basis to the top six placed drivers at each round. Senna giunse secondo, davanti a Mansell, Berger, Boutsen e Johansson[4]. Mansell took the lead at the start with Berger making a slightly hesitant start which allowed Piquet to take second before Berger retook the place with a brave outside overtaking maneuver at the first corner. Prost then went ahead again and led for the rest of the afternoon, never looking threatened as he did not have a third tire stop while his rivals Senna and Piquet did. Nelson Piquet was back in action after his huge crash at Imola while Zakspeed had two 871 chassis for Martin Brundle and Christian Danner, the German having used an older car in the two previous races. This left Piquet and Mansell at the front with Fabi third. He was chased initially by Piquet and Senna but the Lotus soon fell behind Prost. The World Championship for Drivers was won by Nelson Piquet, and the World Championship for Constructors by Williams-Honda. Mansell took the flag just under half a minute ahead of Senna with Alboreto third. Teve como campeão o brasileiro Nelson Piquet da equipe Williams, sendo vice-campeão o inglês Nigel Mansell, também da Williams, que dominou a temporada com 6 dobradinhas de largada e 4 dobradinhas de chegada. March had backing from Leyton House and Ivan Capelli driving an uprated Formula 3000 car while AGS had hired Pascal Fabre to drive. Il campionato piloti si concluse quindi con la vittoria di Piquet, che, con 73 punti, conquistò il terzo titolo mondiale della sua carriera. 13 dicembre 2020, 15:45. Il terzo posto fu conquistato dalla Lotus, mentre la Ferrari, grazie ai risultati positivi ottenuti nelle ultime gare, compensò una prima parte di stagione piuttosto deludente. At the Austrian Grand Prix, held at the scenic and spectacular Österreichring, the fastest Grand Prix circuit of the year Nigel Mansell was handicapped slightly by the fact that he had had a wisdom tooth removed before practice began and this affected his performance in qualifying, allowing his Williams-Honda teammate Nelson Piquet to take pole position at an incredible average speed of 159 mph (255 km/h). The Honda men said that it made no difference but few believed them. Prost's race ended, however, on Lap 15 when the McLaren suffered an alternator failure. Michele Alboreto was sixth in the second Ferrari ahead of Ayrton Senna's Lotus-Honda, Riccardo Patrese's Brabham-BMW, Alain Prost's McLaren and Andrea de Cesaris in the second Brabham. Il brasiliano non poté prendere parte al Gran Premio e la Goodyear decise per sicurezza di fare arrivare nuovi pneumatici per le prove del sabato, che videro Senna in pole position. Alla seconda partenza, Senna dalla seconda fila sopravanzò Piquet e il poleman Mansell; questi cercò già nel primo giro di risuperare il brasiliano, ma i due si agganciarono uscendo di pista, con Senna subito fuori corsa. In the race Piquet took the lead but Mansell dived ahead at the end of the first lap and began to pull away from the Brazilian. In addition there was another new team in the form of Gerard Larrousse's Lola-Ford/Cosworth team which had employed Philippe Alliot. Johansson hit the back of Cheever and Brundle hit the rear of the McLaren. Ferrari's progress throughout the summer months was confirmed with Gerhard Berger taking pole position ahead of Nigel Mansell's Williams-Honda, Alain Prost's McLaren and Nelson Piquet's Williams. A questo punto i piloti della Williams cominciarono a fare gara a sé, con Piquet in testa e Mansell a inseguire; a tre tornate dal termine il pilota inglese sopravanzò il rivale alla curva Stowe, conquistando la vittoria davanti al pubblico di casa. The grid was reformed and the field tried to get away again. The Silverstone circuit, which was originally the fastest circuit on the calendar had been modified: the Woodcote chicane had been taken out and replaced with a slower chicane further down the Bridge straight. This would be the last Austrian Grand Prix for 10 years; the race would return to the same shortened venue in 1997. La lotta fra i due si risolse definitivamente durante la seconda serie di cambi gomme, durante la quale Piquet perse oltre dieci secondi per aver fatto spegnere il motore della propria vettura. Mansell went into the lead again. The top 10 was completed by Stefan Johansson's McLaren and Derek Warwick in the Arrows-Megatron. Con questa vittoria Prost eguagliò il record di Jackie Stewart di 27 vittorie in Formula 1, riportandosi in testa al mondiale[7]. Piquet went out with an engine failure after 10 laps and with Alboreto stopping with a broken CV joint, Prost went into the lead with Boutsen second and Johansson third, the Swede having overtaken Fabi. Quest'edizione del campionato comprendeva anche il trofeo Jim Clark ed il trofeo Colin Chapman, rispettivamente riservati a piloti e costruttori con macchine che montavano motori aspirati, i quali rientravano in Formula 1 dopo essere stati vietati nel 1986. The only other man running was Martin Brundle in his Zakspeed 10 laps behind the winner. Nella stagione 1987 del Campionato mondiale di Formula 1 i punti erano attribuiti nel modo seguente: 9 punti al primo, 6 al secondo, 4 al terzo, 3 al quarto, 2 al quinto e 1 al sesto classificato. In Spagna ed in Messico Mansell conquistò due vittorie consecutive che gli permisero di dimezzare il distacco in classifica dal compagno di squadra, portandolo a dodici lunghezze. Mansell vinse quindi davanti al compagno di squadra e a Prost; quarto concluse Senna, seguito da Teo Fabi e Streiff[10]. A Spa ci vollero due partenze per dare il via alla corsa. The drivers were all complaining intensely about the track surface to FIA personnel, but not much could be done at this point. At the end of the first lap, however, Berger took the lead and with Senna fighting off Piquet for third place the race began to settle down. Eventually, it became a straight fight between Piquet and Mansell, who between them finished with nine wins from the season's sixteen races. La Lotus di Ayrton Senna montava lo stesso motore Honda delle Williams. The FIA also banned super-soft (and sticky) qualifying tyres for 1987, thus eliminating the unpopular practice of having to find a clear lap on tyres which were good for two flying laps at best. The battle for pole position was between the two Williams-Honda with World Championship leader Nelson Piquet (in an active Williams) on pole ahead of challenger Nigel Mansell (who chose to use the passive car). Cheever then had to fight to hold off Fabi and on lap seven the Benetton driver tried to pass and made a mess of it and ended up removing the nose of his car. Sixth place was a surprise in the form of Eddie Cheever's Arrows-Megatron while the top 10 was completed by Stefan Johansson (McLaren-TAG), Gerhard Berger (Ferrari), Thierry Boutsen (Benetton-Ford) and Riccardo Patrese (Brabham-BMW). Alain Prost was fourth for the McLaren-TAG team with Michele Alboreto fifth in his Ferrari. Solo i migliori undici risultati erano conteggiati come punti: tra parentesi i punti reali fatti segnare dai piloti. Formula 1 returned to Japan for the first time in 10 years and the circus came for the first time to the twisty, very demanding Honda-owned Suzuka track near Nagoya having been at the very fast Fuji Speedway in 1977. He would continue until damage from the incident caused him to stop on lap 17, and after he retired, he marched to the Lotus pits to confront Senna, resulting Mansell grabbing Senna by the throat and then the two drivers got into a fist fight. Boutsen chased Berger early on but dropped behind Senna, Piquet and Johansson. The 1979 Formula One season was the 33rd season of FIA Formula One motor racing. At the start Mansell took the lead from Berger but behind them Alboreto collided with Piquet. Berger did as he had done in Japan, leading from flag to flag. It featured the 1987 Formula One World Championship for Drivers and the 1987 Formula One World Championship for Constructors, which were contested concurrently over a sixteen-race series that commenced on 12 April and ended on 15 November. At the second round of stops Piquet stalled in the pitlane and lost just under 10 secs and so Mansell was able to win. Nel Gran Premio d'Austria si dovette ripetere la partenza per ben tre volte, dopo che due collisioni multiple avevano causato l'interruzione della gara con la bandiera rossa. Furono reintrodotti i motori aspirati, di fatto vietati nel 1986 (cilindrata dei motori massima 1500 con "sovralimentazione ammessa"); la loro cilindrata fu aumentata a 3500 cm³. He dropped out of the points but managed to pick up places when Alboreto retired with an exhaust problem and Prost was slowed with a similar failure. Teo Fabi was sixth in his Benetton-Ford with Alain Prost (McLaren), Thierry Boutsen (Benetton) and the two Brabhams of Riccardo Patrese and Andrea de Cesaris rounding off the top 10. The 1987 FIA Formula One World Championship was the 41st season of FIA Formula One motor racing. Tra le vetture con motore aspirato si mise in luce la Tyrrell, che conquistò undici punti ed il sesto posto a pari merito con la Arrows; la Brabham, dopo il disastroso 1986, migliorò leggermente le proprie prestazioni, ma dovette fare i conti con la scarsa affidabilità del motore BMW montato orizzontalmente. Terzo, seppure a tavolino, giunse Boutsen, seguito da Palmer, Dalmas e Moreno, che portò alla AGS il primo punto della sua storia[20]. Con queste due vittorie consecutive Senna scalzò Prost dalla testa della classifica mondiale, salendo a quota 24 punti contro i 22 del francese ed i 18 di Piquet. Come in Giappone, Berger dominò qualifiche e gara, facendo segnare la pole position e mantenendo il comando dalla partenza al traguardo. This put Piquet into the lead and Mansell at the back. Quarto concluse Johansson, seguito da Martin Brundle su Zakspeed (primi e unici punti nella breve storia della scuderia tedesca), e Nakajima sull'altra Lotus (primi punti per un giapponese in Formula 1)[6]. Once ahead Mansell was able to keep his lead at the pit stops and Fabi remained third so attention turned to the battles further down the field as Alboreto and Senna battling it out. A Jerez de la Frontera il pilota inglese superò Piquet, partito dalla pole position, nel corso del primo passaggio, mantenendo poi il comando per tutta la gara. Secondo giunse Piquet, che precedette sul traguardo le due Ferrari di Alboreto e Berger. Both had to be separated Second place belonged to Alboreto with Prost third, Boutsen fourth and Fabi fifth after Berger went out with an engine failure. Portatosi in prima posizione, Senna vi rimase fino alla bandiera a scacchi; Mansell, colpito dai crampi, fu sopravanzato da Piquet (rallentato da una foratura nelle prime tornate), Prost e Berger, concludendo solo quinto; l'ultimo punto a disposizione fu conquistato da Cheever[9]. This moved Alboreto to second and Piquet to third and the order stayed the same until Piquet overtook Alboreto on lap 29. At the pitstops Mansell was away and gone before Senna arrived but Piquet was slower and found himself stuck in fourth place behind Senna and Prost. Formula 1 Racing Championship 1987 Schedule. This was the last Formula One Grand Prix at Brands Hatch; from 1987 onwards the British Grand Prix would be held at Silverstone. Dopo avere perso il campionato 1986 in maniera rocambolesca, i piloti della Williams Nigel Mansell e Nelson Piquet cercavano la rivincita nei confronti di Alain Prost, che guidava l'ultima evoluzione della McLaren MP4, la prima non progettata da John Barnard (anche se si trattava di un modello derivato dalle precedenti), ora alla Ferrari. The high-speed circuit tour kept coming, and next was the Belgian Grand Prix at the magnificent and fast Spa-Francorchamps public road circuit near Liege. The team also got a new technical director Ross Brawn joining from the Haas Lola team. The accident left Mansell with severe bruising to his backbone, re-triggering an old injury and it was decided that he should not be allowed to race. Most of the failures in this race were engine- or turbo-related; the 1.5L turbo-charged cars were producing around 950 hp in race trim. The pace of the Williams drivers and the superiority of the Williams FW11B on high-speed tracks meant that Mansell and Piquet lapped the entire field near the end of the race. Going into the German Grand Prix at the very fast Hockenheimring with its forested straights, the World Championship was finely balanced at the midseason with Nelson Piquet leading on 39 points, Ayrton Senna second with 35, Nigel Mansell third with 30 and Alain Prost fourth with 26. * Dalmas was not eligible for points, as he was driving Larrousse-Lola's second car and the team had officially entered only one car for the entire championship. La strategia di Senna si rivelò comunque sbagliata e il pilota della Lotus dovette cedere la posizione a Prost, Johansson e allo stesso Piquet, chiudendo quinto; l'ultimo punto fu conquistato da Alliot[17]. † Driver did not finish the Grand Prix, but was classified as he completed over 90% of the race distance. Contestualmente, la Lotus decise di sostituirlo con Nelson Piquet[14]. Piquet era così matematicamente Campione del Mondo per la terza volta in carriera. At the French Grand Prix held at the Paul Ricard circuit near the French Riviera city of Le Castellet, the battle of the Honda powered cars was interrupted in France by a good performance from Alain Prost's McLaren-TAG which qualified second to Nigel Mansell's Williams. Honda had announced that it would not be supplying Williams with engines in 1988, despite the fact the Japanese company still had one year to go on its contract. Ligier was due to run new Alfa Romeo four-cylinder turbo engines for Rene Arnoux and Piercarlo Ghinzani but things went badly wrong: Arnoux made disparaging remarks about the Italian company's new four-cylinder turbo engine, referring to them as "used food". The second row featured Teo Fabi (Benetton-Ford) and Alain Prost (McLaren-TAG) with the Ferraris of Michele Alboreto and Gerhard Berger together on the third row. Dopo due stagioni piuttosto avare di risultati si ritirò dal campionato la, Fecero il loro ingresso in Formula 1 tre nuove squadre: la, La Ferrari sostituì Johansson con il giovane. Only the best 11 results counted towards the Drivers' Championship. At the start of the second lap Philippe Streiff lost control of his Tyrrell at Raidillon and smashed into the barriers, the impact tearing the engine from the car. Ritiratosi Prost per un problema meccanico, gli ultimi punti andarono a Warwick e Fabi[11]. The 1987 FIA Formula One World Championship was the 41st season of FIA Formula One motor racing.
