It occurred to me that with the Portuguese GP coming up this weekend, some enthusiasts on this forum might like to have a glimpse of a different era and a different Circuit, so here are some of my memories of the 1992 Grande Prémio de Portugal, Estoril:
Captions are not necessary, but there might still be people out there who weren’t born then!
Martin Brundle and Michael Schumacher Benetton-Ford
Riccardo Patrese Williams-Renault - wearing his flag in a funny place. A bit later in a spectacular accident he managed to “clout Berger” (Murray’s words) who had slowed to enter the pits - in fact his car flew over Berger’s head. Hunt’s commentary declared it Patrese’s fault.
Ron Dennis and Gerhard Berger McLaren Honda
J.J. Lehto and Emanuele Pirro
Mr and Mrs Nigel Mansell - why the Joker on the wall?
Nigel Mansell - Williams Renault - the eventual Winner (nice watch)
Nakamura-san (Mr Honda) Probably too polite to express amazement at the state of the track!

Is that Alan Henry talking to Sheridan Thynne in the background ?
