1991 Formula 1 – Season Review
1991 F1 Season Review
1-DVD (162 Minutes)
A tremendous review of the entire 1991 F1 season, covering each race
in detail, and much more! Originally produced at the end of the
1991 season, we see Ayrton Senna capture yet another World Championship.
This is a 2 hour 42 minute review, burned on a single dual-layer (DL) disc.
Ayrton Senna and McLaren made it two World Championship titles in succession, while Nigel Mansell elected not to
quit Formula One but to race for Williams. The Williams cars were very strong, and Mansell would challenge Senna,
but fall short. McLaren kept its driver line-up of Ayrton Senna and Gerhard Berger, but they were now using a V12
Honda engine instead of the V10. With Mansell’s move from Ferrari to Williams, Jean Alesi joined Ferrari.
The first race of the 1991 season was the US Grand Prix at Phoenix, which Senna won by 16 seconds over arch rival
Alain Prost (Ferrari) and Nelson Piquet (Benetton). At the second race in Brazil, Senna would finally win at his home
track after 8 attempts, and the crowd goes absolutely wild. At the next race in San Marino, Senna dominates, only
his teammate Gerhard Berger finishes on the same lap. The third race was Monaco, which of course is where Senna
shines. This time would be no different, as he beat out rival Nigel Mansell by over 18 seconds. At the Canadian
Grand Prix, Nigel Mansell was finally bringing the Williams Team a victory, but on the final lap, he waved to the
crowd and killed his engine, handing the win to a surprised Nelson Piquet. In Mexico, it was Riccardo Patrese taking
the win, holding off a hard charging Nigel Mansell. Ayrton Senna would take 3rd, and criticized Honda for not having
an engine able to match the Renaults. At the French Grand Prix, Mansell would finally get his first win of the season.
The British Grand Prix at Silverstone was a dramatic win for British racing fans, as Nigel Mansell would win again in
front of his home crowd. At the German Grand Prix, it was Mansell again, making it three in a row and rapidly closing
the points lead. But at the next two races in Hungary and Belgium, Senna would be back to his usual form, winning
both races. At the Italian Grand Prix, Nigel Mansell would edge out Ayrton Senna for the win when Senna’s tires
began to wear late in the race. At this race, a young Michael Schumacher had just replaced Roberto Moreno in the
Benetton, and on Schumacher’s first outing, he would score points with a 5th place finish. At the Portuguese Grand
Prix, Nigel Mansell had the race in the bag when his pit crew made an error. While exiting the pits, Mansell’s right
rear tire comes off, handing the victory to Riccardo Patrese, with Senna taking second. At the Spanish Grand Prix,
Mansell would win again over Prost and Patrese, with Senna coming taking fifth. At the Japanese Grand Prix,
Mansell would crash out, and with the championship already won, race leader Senna would allow his teammate
Gerhard Berger to pass and take the win, making for a McLaren 1-2 finish, and Berger’s only win of the year. At
the final race in Australia, Senna would dominate in the pouring rain, and the race was halted after just 14 laps.
After the race, Alain Prost was fired by Ferrari, but in fact he had already planned to leave the team.
