Nigel Mansell signed Ferrari 1:2 scale helmet, official release, hand signed with COA.
In preparation for the 1989 season, Mansell became the last Ferrari driver to be personally selected by Enzo Ferrari before his death in August 1988, an honour Mansell described as “one of the greatest in my entire career”. In Italy he became known as “il leone” (“the lion”) by the tifosi because of his fearless driving style. The season was one of change in the sport, with the banning of turbo engines by the FIA and the introduction of the electronically controlled semi-automatic transmission by Ferrari.
