Mansell Nigel – UNITED KINGDOM

Nigel Ernest James Mansell (Upton-upon-Severn, 8 August1953) is a British former racing driver, Formula 1 World Championship in 1992 and winner of the American CART in 1993.

Nicknamed as “Il Leone d’Inghilterra” (the Lion of England), the great Nigel Mansell is one of the most widely-loved F1 champion from the public. His driving style, reckless and at times often spectacular, drove the crowds wild.

  • This MOMO steering wheel in our collection was fitted on the Lotus 91, which the racer used during the 1982 F1 World Championship. Mansell missed 3 races that season, but managed to come 3rd at the Brazilian Grand Prix and 4th at the Monaco Grand Prix.
  • It is an honour for our museum to have his MOMO steering wheel designed for his Williams FW11B. In the 1987 F1 World Championship, Mansell fought valiantly to claim second place, behind team-mate Nelson Piquet, thanks to victories in a number of Grands Prix: those of San Marino, France, Great Britain, Austria, Spain and Mexico.
  • This MOMO steering wheel in our collection was fitted on the Ferrari 641, which the driver used during the 1990 F1 World Championship. That year Mansell appeared on the podium 5 times, winning more championship points thanks to two 4th places, at the Brazilian and Italian Grands Prix.
  • This PERSONAL steering wheel in our collection is a testament to that magnificent season that saw the British driver win the Formula 1 World Championship in 1992, driving the Williams FW14 single-seater, called “the car from another planet“, because it was perfect in every sense: reliability, appearance, aerodynamics and mechanics. As a result, Mansell claimed the drivers’ title, achieving nine wins and three second places, while Williams won the fifth constructors’ title with 10 victories and 164 points.
