Champions Forever The Formula One Drivers
While this documentary is a representation of the 1973 Formula 1 season and
was released in 1974, it's disturbing that graphic footage of Tom Pryce's
horrifying accident at the 1977 South African Grand Prix was included. It
was probably included to make an extra dollar, but really had no reason
being there as it had nothing to do with the 1973 season (Pryce wasn't even
driving in F1 at the time). Aside from that, it's a good and gripping
documentary about the racers, races and season in general. There is more
graphic footage of the Roger Williamson crash, where he was killed and Clay
Regazzoni's crash (he survived), but the interviews with Francois Cevert

1994 NIGEL MANSELL PORTLAND INDYCAR GRAND PRIX AND F1 TEST STRAIGHT
AFTER......Return to Formula One
In 1994 Mansell made a Formula One comeback. After the untimely death of
Ayrton Senna, he returned to Formula One with Williams replacing rookie
David Coulthard for the French Grand Prix and the last three races of the
season. Mansell was paid approximately £900,000 per race, compared to
Williams' lead driver at the time, Damon Hill being paid £300,000 for the
entire season. Mansell's return was helped by Bernie Ecclestone helping
unravel his contracts in the United States. It was important for F1 to have
a world champion driving that season and they needed Mansell. Mansell
wasn't as quick as Damon Hill in race trim but signs that his speed were
coming back were evident in Japan during a fantastic battle with the
Ferrari of Jean Alesi. Mansell took his final Grand Prix victory, the
Australian Grand Prix, which was the final race of the season having
out-qualified the two contenders for the title, Damon Hill and Michael
Schumacher, in the process. The plan was initially for Mansell to protect
Hill from Schumacher, but both drivers passed him at the start and
eventually collided, handing Schumacher his 1st World Title.
Williams had an option on Mansell's services for 1995 which Mansell was
sure they would take. However, Williams opted for youth over experience and

1994 NIGEL MANSELL LAGUNA SECA INDYCAR GRAND PRIX
Round Sixteen: Laguna Seca
* This race was the record 407th and final IndyCar race for the great
Mario Andretti. He qualified twelfth, but for the pace laps was given
honorary pole position. Former CART flagman Nick Fornoro came back to wave
the green flag for Mario's last race.
* Paul Tracy won back-to-back poles and showed the form he struggled to
find in the early part of the year. He set a new track record of 1:10.058
seconds. Exiting Turn 2 (the hairpin) Al Unser, Jr. touched wheels with
Robby Gordon and slid off the course. Michael Andretti outbraked Arie
Luyendyk for eighth in Turn 3, but spun the rear wheels and spun out.
Champions collided as four seconds later he was struck by an unfortunate
Bobby Rahal, ending the day for both, and assuring Paul Tracy of third in
the standings. Turn 3 and "The Corkscrew" (the Turn 8 downhill chicane
complex which literally screws into itself) were the preferred places to
pass behind Tracy. Robby Gordon spun twice, giving up a likely points
finish. On Lap 82 Mario's career ended a few laps too early as he slowed
with engine failure and ended 19th. Tracy took maximum points (22) ahead of
Raul Boesel, who finished second for the fifth time in his IndyCar career.
Jacques Villeneuve, Emerson Fittipaldi, Teo Fabi, Arie Luyendyk, and Adrian
Fernandez were also in the lead lap. The final points went to Nigel
Mansell, Andrea Montermini, Dominic Dobson, Willy T. Ribbs, and Stefan
Johansson; all one lap down.
* This race was also the last for Nigel Mansell. After the season he
ran the final three races in Formula One that season for Williams as the
only active World Champion, as Alain Prost retired after the 1993 season
and Ayrton Senna was killed whilst leading at Imola in May. After having
raced at Magny-Cours in June, Mansell spun off in Jerez, finished fourth in
Suzuka, and after title contenders Michael Schumacher and Damon Hill
collided, won the finale in Adelaide, Australia. In 1995 he defected to
McLaren, soon leaving the team due to an uncompetitive car.
* Also exiting the sport were the King Racing team owned by drag racing
legend Kenny Bernstein. A year later he would also pull the plug on his
NASCAR Winston Cup operation; both of which due to lack of competitiveness.
