1992 German Grand Prix


1-DVD (99 Minutes)

This is the complete race as broadcast on LIVE TV.


After less than a year in Formula 1, young Michael Schumacher had become a hero to German F1 fans.
They came out in full force at Hockenheim to cheer him on, but with the Williams juggernaut of Nigel
Mansell and Riccardo Patrese dominating the season, it was highly unlikely the future 7-time World
Champion would get a victory. Nigel Mansell would be on pole again, followed by his teammate Riccardo
Patrese. In the second row it was the McLarens of Ayrton Senna and Gerhard Berger, followed by the
Ferrari of Jean Alesi, and in sixth position Michael Schumacher.

It was a fabulous start for Riccardo Patrese, who jumped ahead heading into turn 1, but as the field
braked for the first chicane, Nigel Mansell took the lead and began to pull away. As the race unfolded,
team drivers were locked together. It was the Williams Team of Nigel Mansell and Riccardo Patrese
(1-2), followed by McLaren Team of Ayrton Senna and Gerhard Berger (3-4), the Benetton Team of
Michael Schumacher and Martin Brundle (5-6), and the Ferrari Team of Jean Alesi and Ivan Capelli
(7-8). When most of the cars pitted, Ayrton Senna decided to run non-stop. After exiting the pits,
Nigel Mansell chased after Senna, and in his eagerness to get in the lead again, ran over the second
part of a chicane and had the momentum to pass Senna before the third chicane. Michael Schumacher
had also decided to run non-stop and was third, with Riccardo Patrese fourth, followed by Martin
Brundle and Jean Alesi. Schumacher held off Patrese as long as he could, but eventually had to give
way. On the last lap, there was high drama as Riccardo Patrese spun trying to pass Senna for second
place. As they crossed the finish line, it would be Nigel Mansell taking the win, followed by Ayrton
Senna, and third on the podium was Michael Schumacher, much to the delight of the German crowd.
