@taipan - must disagree with you on Mansell. Sure the 92 Williams was a class apart, but so was the Red Bull last year, the Ferrari in the early 00's, the Lotus 72, the Lotus 49 in 68, the Mercedes in 55....this is how it goes. Are you saying that Vettel, Schumacher, Senna, Rindt, Hill & Fangio weren't worthy world champions because their cars were superior? This has always been the nature of this sport. The best drivers in the fastest cars! But you've still got to drive it and Mansell was blistering in qualifying in 92, a full 1.8 seconds ahead of his teammate at Silverstone that year, the same gap that Senna had over Prost at Monaco in 1988. Mansell could very easily have been a four-time world champion but for an exploding rear tyre in 86, an incredibly unlucky qualifying accident that kept him out of the last two races in 87, and ridiculous early season unreliability in 1991. He deserved to be in that Williams and he deserved to be champion.
