Alain Prost Blank Birthday Fathers Day by Stuart Booth
The 1986 Australian Grand Prix - a dramatic three-way championship decider between Mansell, Piquet and Prost.
Here Alain Prost, working his way through the field in typical fashion, has passed Nigel Mansell, who only needed to finish third to claim the championship. On lap 64 Mansell was out with a blown tyre and Prost was closing on Piquet who was in the lead, but had to be called in for a precautionary tyre change. Prost slowed dramatically as his fuel ran low, but nursed the car home to win by four seconds from Piquet.
