    Excellent driver but not at the level of Prost and Senna, was never quite the same again after the crash at Imola and couldn't handle Mansell on many occasions.

    Piquet is seriously underrated. Victimized Reutemann, Prost, Senna and Mansell in his way to his 3-times drivers championships.
    The first two in slower cars than his opponents and the last title against the team that wanted an British champion.
    Without Williams favouring Mansell in ‘86, Piquet would have been 4-times champion.

    In 1983 after the Netherlands race where he was thrown off the track in a Prost mistake, Piquet was asked about rumors that he was going to Ferrari in 1984. The answer:
    "It would be nice to go to Ferrari and become a three-time champion there ..."
    The reporter: - But you are a champion only once!
    Piquet: "- But I will be a double champion this year."
    The interview was for a Brazilian reporter. The European press would laugh if they knew, because at the time of the championship there were 3 races to go and Piquet was only 4th in the championship. And in the end, he really became a two-time champion.
    Many years later asked why he did not agree to go to Ferrari, he replied:
    "If I go to drive for Ferrari, I would just be a Ferrari driver. At Brabham, I was Nelson Piquet."

    Probably one of the three greatest drivers of all time, and certainly the most underrated. The only driver twice champion without driving in the best team, author of the biggest overtaking in the history of F-1 and more, he developed technologies that are still used today, such as the tire blanket .. Simply great! Simply legendary!!!

    Piquet facts:
    Started his career with no support, helping Reutmann. Won his first title against the argentinian 2 years later.
    Won 2 titles with the second best car of the grid.
    Used to remove the engine of his transporting vehicle to use it in his racing car, only to reasemble it after each race and move on.
    While traveling at the beginning of his career, barely took showers.
    Invented the tire heating systems.
    Helped invent the suspended nose.
    Helped develop the active suspension.
    Was a great tennis player, even playing professionaly.
    Had his driver´s license suspended in his hometown for speeding. He had to undergo basic lessons as a penalty.
    Hated street circuits.
    After being asked by a reporter, about who he would honnor his title to, he said he would honnor it to himself, since he made all the effort to win it.
    After being asked alongside Mansell about who was the best, him or Senna, he says:
    " I´m alive"
    Piquet, we love you!

    Nelson Piquet não deve absolutamente NADA para Ayrton Senna.
    Ambos com 3 títulos mundiais, mas no caso do Piquet, com 3 motores diferentes, em duas equipes distintas e com um número bem menor de vitórias. É válido relembrar a importância da participação do Nelson para a tecnologia turbo na F1, assim como na inserção do aquecimento de pneus e no reabastecimento durante as corridas. Do mais um piloto extremamente técnico, estrategista, sincero e muito zoeiro kkkkkkkkkk
    Vida longa ao Nelsão!

    Sensational doesn't necessarily mean "brilliant" Sensational can mean an action or statement causing a startling or shocking effect, strong or intense reaction... Such as when you use the phrase "News sensation" or "sensational news" it doesn't mean excellent news, it means shocking or surprising news. ( MetalHead Reacts

    Thank you Formula 1 for uploading this. It seems unfair that of all the drivers with 3+ WCs, Piquet is portrayed as the odd one out, especially in Europe. Piquet was a highly intelligent, astute, quick driver with a high level of engineering ability, which often gets overlooked.
    That Las Vegas circuit was brutal - nearly 40 degrees Celsius, and high-G-force, constant radius corners in ground-effect cars :( Would have liked to have seen one of Nelson's wins from 1980 - his drives in Long Beach and Holland were fab.
