The 1991 British Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Silverstone on 14 July 1991. The 59-lap race was won from pole position by local driver Nigel Mansell, driving a Williams-Renault. Gerhard Berger finished second in a McLaren-Honda, with Alain Prost third in a Ferrari. Drivers’ Championship leader, Ayrton Senna, ran out of fuel in the second McLaren-Honda on the final lap and was classified fourth.
Perhaps remembered more for the vistory lap than anything else, Nigel Mansell victorious in the Williams FW14, stopped to give Ayrton Senna a lift back to the pits – creating the ‘taxi for Senna’ moment that is fondly remembered by the crowd and television viewsers. This photograph from the lens of John Townsend of Ayrton Senna in race action.
