1986 Mexican Grand Prix
- Sunday, October 12, 1986
- Gran Premio de Mexico
- F1 World Championship
In the reinstated Mexican GP Gerhard Berger scored an impressive victory with a Benetton-BMW aided by running through non-stop on Pirelli tyres. Prost finished second by driving carefully and needing only one Goodyear tyre change, while Senna and Mansell needed two changes and Piquet made three stops. Mansell "muffed" his start and lost a lot of ground. Both Ferraris retired with turbocharger failures, Alboreto early in the race and Johansson near the end while challenging strongly for third place.
