The 1992 Canadian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on June 14, 1992. It was the seventh round of the 1992 Formula One season.

Qualifying[edit]

Qualifying produced a surprise as Ayrton Senna took pole position in his McLaren while championship leader Nigel Mansell could only manage third, behind Williams team-mate Riccardo Patrese. This would turn out to be the only non-Williams pole of 1992, and one of only two not taken by Mansell that season. Rumours suggested that the English driver was under stress, as Williams were negotiating with Alain Prost for 1993.[2]

Gerhard Berger took fourth in the other McLaren, followed by Michael Schumacher in the Benetton. Johnny Herbert impressed in the Lotus and took sixth, ahead of Martin Brundle in the second Benetton. The top 10 was completed by the Ferraris of Jean Alesi and Ivan Capelli, and Mika Häkkinen in the second Lotus.

Race[edit]

At the start Senna took the lead from the two Williams-Renaults with Mansell getting ahead of Patrese then Berger, Schumacher, Herbert and Brundle. On lap 14 Mansell tried to overtake Senna at the last chicane but the car ended off track and spun and came to a stop on the main straight. The Williams driver was out of the race. Lap 18 saw the exit of Capelli who crashed out. On lap 37 Senna retired from the lead with electrical problems. Next Patrese was out as his gearbox failed. Berger was in the lead followed by Schumacher. Katayama was driving a good race but had to retire from 5th on lap 61 when his engine expired.

Notes[edit]

  • Pole position: Ayrton Senna - 1:19.775
  • Fastest lap: Gerhard Berger - 1:22.325 on lap 61
  • Stefano Modena started the race from the back of the grid.
  • Gachot was disqualified for a push start.
  • Last points for the March team. The March cars had lots of local advertising this weekend, apparently due to a newspaper article about the team's financial struggles.
  • Ukyo Katayama was on course to score his first points finish of the season, but failed to do so due to an engine failure. He pulled back to the pits and retired.
  • The Andrea Moda team had to borrow Judd engines from the Brabham team in order to compete.
  • Nigel Mansell's first retirement of the season.
  • First race of the season in which both Williams retired. Mansell crashed out on the start-finish straight and Patrese retired his car in the pits due to a gearbox problem.
  • Ligier scored their first points since the 1989 French Grand Prix almost 3 years prior.

Standings after the race[edit]
