Sunday 17th May 1992
Nigel Mansell gained the 26th Grand Prix win of his racing career at Imola, San Marino, becoming the most successful British driver in Grand Prix races, and the fourth worldwide.
The first start was aborted due to Karl Wendlinger’s March stalling; he eventually started the race at the back of the grid. Stefano Modena started from the pit lane in his Jordan. Mansell led every lap, finishing nearly ten seconds ahead of Patrese. Senna finished third, nearly forty seconds behind Patrese, but was unable to take his place on the podium due to discomfort he suffered all race, and was unable to get out of his car until long after the race ended. Mansell’s win continued his perfect start to the 1992 season, with five wins from the opening five races; this broke the record of successive wins from the start of the season set by Senna the previous year. Brundle finished fourth to pick up his first points of 1992. Alboreto finished fifth, and Pierluigi Martini finished sixth, scoring what would prove to be the Dallara team’s last point in Formula One.
