Nigel Mansell CBE
Perhaps he has done something for charity!

He doesn't appear to be a particularly nice person. Frank Williams couldn't get shot of him fast enough and the Americans saw through him pretty quickly too. His natural paranoia wasn't helped by the whining Brummie (ok Worcester perhaps) accent but on his day he was fearless in the car.


Edited to say his relationship with Peter Warr of Lotus was even more prickly. Warr loathed him and was reputed to have said “he will never win a Grand Prix as long as I have a hole in my arse”.
