Gimme five!

In the heat of Imola nothing could stop Nigel Mansell setting another record. This time last year, at the fifth Grand Prix of the season, Williams-Renault had firmly indicated the strength of its challenge to McLaren-Honda. That race, the Canadian GP, ultimately fell to poor old Nelson Piquet in the Benetton-Ford, but only after Mansell's last minute drama. Senna had won the previous four, but...
