    I admire the ability of Senna to move from Lotus to McLaren in once second at 10:09 and move to Lotus back. Same ability from Mansell to change himself from red suit to bleu suit at the same moment.

    nige won the F1 championship then decided he is getting to old for F1 so retired and moved to Indycar instead and won that in his 1st season.
    Just about every F1 driver who switched to indycar did a lot better in indy than they did in F1. yet nearly all indy drivers who switched to F1 failed badly in F1

    Nigel Mansell in my opinion was like Richard Burns of Formula One, he was so calculating and sometimes dominating...and like Richard Burns who always wanted to drive for Subaru at almost everytime and loved by Subaru so much, Nigel became a big force at Williams, and Williams also loved Nigel so much...

    I don't agreee on the frustrating two years in Ferrari.
    The car was really innovative (first f1 ever with gearshift actuated on steering wheel) and Nigel won on its debut. GP Hungary 1989 and Mexico 1990, one of the most relevanto moments of his talent, were on a Ferrari.

    My #1 candidate, for "racing driver I most wish had driven in NASCAR". I photographed him in Phoenix, driving Indycar. He stood next to Mario and today, I have an 8X10 on my wall next to me, of Mario. But apparently, Nigel is blurry in real life.

    Simply a Legend. Sure, only one World Champion Title ma he was so dominant, so spectactular, so fighter with a lot of respect of the opponent. The respect and the estimate from Senna is exemplary.

    I wouldn't call him the best F1 driver ever. But I would call him my favorite F1 driver ever. He was to me, a hugely needed antidote to the incredibly annoying Senna and Prost.

    When Nigel was in the zone you definitely paid close attention, most exiting overtaker ever, even if he was prone to some silly mistakes, also he shined kinda late in his career, a bit of a late starter, then he went to the US to a somewhat different racing discipline and blew them away, impressive.

    Mansell's team manager at Lotus had such contempt for him that he publicly announced that he wouldn't win a grand prix while he had a hole in his bottom! Honestly, I've never heard before or since a team manager insult a driver like that. With such an inauspicious start to his career, he actually did really well.

    Up there with Ayrton, don’t believe me.. Ayrton respected Nigel like no one else in F1, like him on track they were both willing to give their lives to win.. Sadly, Ayrton was only happy on track racing, where as Nigel had a life outside of racing.. Make no mistake, they were both equally talented...

    Mansell could beat anyone on the day, I loved following his career. I was once in a very German hotel in Majorca when Schumaker was winning quite convincingly. Despite the one sided commentary I noticed Mansell was not settling for 3rd at the Portugese GP. I realized he could do it with about 5 laps to go. He beat him on the last lap and I leapt into the air in a star jump. I was greeted by total silience from about 40 german fans in the tv lounge, us Welsh have got very thick skin and I was trying not to laugh too much

    Win , lose or DNF, I'd rather watch one of Mansell's races than any of those in this more sanitised era of racing.
    Nobody could describe it better than Murray Walker :~
    "It's Mansell, anything can happen and probably will".
    It did nearly every eventful race "Our Nige" took part in. Be it in a Williams, Lotus or Ferrari.
    Unlike the modern era, I cannot remember ever hearing anybody call F1 boring back then with "Our Nige" around.
