1992 Formula One season

From BluWiki

The 1992 Formula One season was the 43rd FIA Formula One World Championship season. It commenced on March 1, 1992, and ended on November 8 after sixteen races. Nigel Mansell won the Drivers' World Championship, and the Williams-Renault team were Constructors' Champions.

Pre-season

The four major teams all kept at least one driver from 1991, with the two main title challengers both fielding unchanged driver lineups.

Further down the grid, the Jordan team took a risk by replacing both drivers after their successful debut season, while the impoverished Coloni team had been sold and renamed Andrea Moda Formula.
