Relive One of F1’s Most Epic Races of All Time for Free

Stuck at home and looking for something exciting to watch? Formula 1’s YouTube channel has just added a complete Grand Prix and it happens to be one of the most epic races ever—the 1986 Australian Grand Prix.

The Williams cars, powered by a turbocharged Honda engine, were the ones to beat that year. However, their drivers, Nigel Mansell and Nelson Piquet, really didn’t get along.

When they landed in Adelaide for the final race of the season, Mansell was leading the championship and needed to finish on the podium to be crowned. Piquet and McLaren’s Alain Prost also had a chance to win the title, but they absolutely had to win the race and hope that Mansell would finish fourth or worse.

We’re not going to spoil the ending, but you should know that all three were in position to become the champion at some point during the Grand Prix. And there was plenty of action, too.

So sit back, relax and watch the video below:
