British Formula 1 world champion 1992 Nigel Mansell believes that his compatriot Lewis Hamilton this year is sure to be a fight for the title.
The Formula 1 world champion Nigel Mansell believes that working with the strongest pilots is the best option for progress.Nigel Mansell "the Competition at a high level is one thing, but win at a high level - is quite another.I have always been interested to work in a team with the best pilots, world Champions, because guys like you will quickly learn and become better. I was always interested in the experience of others. This is the best teacher for the pilot." F1-world.Giza his career, Mansell had to work with four Champions Mario Andretti in the Lotus, Keke Rosberg and Nelson Piquet at Williams, Alain Prost at Ferrari.
The Formula 1 world champion 1992 Nigel Mansell believes that it is too much for the pilot makes the car.Nigel Mansell "In past years the car had so many auxiliary computer means. The pilots had to stay alone with the car on the track.Now it is not so. Too many engineers and information presented to the pilot during the race.I hope that the formation of new rules this nuance is taken into account, and the pilots little will be left to themselves. It will then be a really interesting race.
Three of their four League titles, the Frenchman Alain Prost won the start number "2", including in 1993.After a failed 1991 Ferrari Simple chose to skip one season to earn a place in the cockpit Williams in the car, which at that time had no equal on the slopes of Formula 1. Learn about the contract with Allen, left the team Nigel Mansell won the championship in 1992. As the defending champion moved into the IndyCar season-1993 passed without a car with a champion "unity". Instead, the Williams team won the constructors ' championship, got a couple of numbers "0" and "2". Of course, three-time champion chose to come to the car with "two" and "zero" went to newcomer Damon hill.
In 1990 Ayrton Senna won the second title in the 1991 season as defending champion earned the right to play with a champion "single".The 1991 season was the fourth for the Union McLaren-Honda. Japanese motorists for the first time to prepare itself aspirated engine configuration V12. However, during the winter tests have problems, and the second team pilot Gerhard Berger even advised to go back to last year's V10 engine. However, the new season, McLaren started with a new engine. But the debut of the semi-automatic gearbox, which is already used by rivals Ferrari and Williams, had to be postponed.Senna won the first four races, earned 40 out of 40 points and brought their lead to 29 points. But then the McLaren started, and in five races Ayrton only twice climbed to the third step of the podium. In Williams, by contrast, dealt with the reliability of the Renault engines, and Nigel Mansell have won three of five races, reducing the gap from the leader of the championship to 8 points.
Technical Director of Red Bull Adrian Newey believes that the young Max Verstappen is very similar to the style of British aerobatics champion 1992 Nigel Mansell.Adrian Newey "I carefully watched max and now I can conclude that my style of aerobatics it looks very much like Nigel. Most dramatic in Manselle was that you always knew that it was he sitting in that car doing something incredible.He was aggressive and was always flown by in centimetres from rivals. Max is now doing the same thing. In the same way as Mansell, Max does not take criticism".Newey and Mansell worked together at Williams in 1991, 1992 and 1994.

An exciting race in Abu Dhabi gave Formula 1 a new champion. We present a few interesting facts about Nico Rosberg.Nico Rosberg became the 33rd consecutive Formula 1 world champion. His father Keke Rosberg in his time was the 20th champion.This is only the third time in the history of Formula 1, when the champion was the son of the former pilot of Formula-1 after Damon hill and Jacques Villeneuve. And the second time became the champion son of the champion of Formula-1 after Damon hill.Nico won the title in his eleventh season.

Nico Rosberg won the first Grand Prix of Mexico for 23 years, after starting from the pole position and two pit stops. By implementing a strategy of using soft, moderately hard and moderately hard tyres again, he was ahead of his teammate Lewis Hamilton, making regained second place in personal offset. It is worth Recalling that it was the 10th double team Mercedes this season.A significant impact on the development of racing strategies provided check out 20 laps from the safety car. Those pilots who made a pit stop while staying on the track the safety car is not lost time.The exception was the Mexican racer Sergio Perez, the Force India team, which visited boxes only once and finished in eighth place. Thus, it has strengthened my reputation as a pilot, able to perfectly control the tire wear. Once in the pits we stopped only Perez and most of the drivers visited the pits twice, and some made three pit stops. However, none of the pilots who stayed in the pits three times, failed to score points.An additional factor in today's race was the highest for the whole weekend the temperature, although previously predicted precipitation. In the race the asphalt warmed up to 46 degrees, it is deposited more rubber, so the wear and reduce the characteristics of the tires compared to practice and qualifying session has changed. Additional traction and improved high speed characteristic of the discharged air trails in Mexico direct Sebastian Vettel was able to accelerate up to 366 km/h. And the pilot Williams Felipe Massa has a top speed of 352 km/h without the aid of DRS.During the race, and has better characteristics track moderately hard tyres began to show great performance. On 67th lap Rosberg showed the best time round race on the tires of this type, and this time was about a second better time pole position on the soft tyres.All the drivers started on the soft tyres. The only exception were two pilots of the team McLaren and the Ferrari team driver Kimi Raikkonen they started the race on the tyres of medium hardness.Paul Hembery, Director of the division of Pirelli Motorsport "As expected, we saw a two pit stop for the majority of pilots in difficult from a strategic point of view the race. This complexity was due to constant increase of the characteristics of the route, the high temperature was 12 degrees higher compared to yesterday afternoon and the departure of the safety car towards the end of the race. The return of Formula 1 in Mexico has been extremely successful from start to finish on the track was astounding and disturbing atmosphere. As told by Nigel Mansell during the interviewing of the pilots on the podium "Viva Mexico" Nice to know that not everything changes during the previous Grand Prix of Mexico in 1986, the victory was celebrated by Gerhard Berger in the Benetton car equipped with Pirelli tires. Since then, the fans have stayed the same devotees".The best results of types of tyresMaggie Kvyat - 121,5492 Riccardo - 121,6253 Sainz - 122,and Rosberg - 120,5212 Hamilton - 120,7233 Bottas - 121,585 The longest race in the raceSoft tires Lewis Hamilton 28 lapsTyre average hardness Sergio Perez 53 lapsEvaluation of prognosisthis 71-lap race, we predicted a strategy with two pit stops start on the soft tyres, the transition to the next set of soft tyres on the 23rd lap and the tyres of medium hardness on the 46th lap. Rosberg opted for two pit-stops and carried them out almost as we had predicted, but on the soft tyres he drove only the first segment. The winner of the race was crossing on moderately hard tyres on the 26th and 46th circles. On the development of strategies was strongly influenced by the most high for the whole weekend temperatures and a continuous improvement of characteristics of asphalt trails.
The victory in Mexico was for Nico Rosberg is already 12th in career. However, for the first time in his career the German driver scored a hat-trick won the pole, showed the best lap time in the race and crossed the finish line first.In the history of Formula 1 only 44 drivers were able to achieve a hat-trick, and the highest number earned Michael Schumacher - 22.

These are my favorite pilots.But among all the pilots, especially among my peers, was allocated only one - Michael Schumacher. He doesn't look like anyone else, this is a special driver and man.
Champion of 1992 Nigel Mansell is confident that in his 62 years he easily could manage a modern car and even Mercedes would compete with Lewis Hamilton.Nigel Mansell in an interview with Fox Sports "I am Confident that I would be able to show the speed on par with Hamilton's. Can't say that I could stay ahead of him. Maybe I would be faster on a pair of circles, but it's hard to keep a few laps, when it got old. After several months of training and I definitely could be on the podium".Mansell competed in Formula 1 in 1980 and 1995 His last victory the British won, when he was 41 years Grand Prix of Australia 1994.
