The Minardi M186 was a Formula One car, designed for Minardi by Giacomo Caliri for use in the 1986 season. Introduced partway through the year and driven by Andrea de Cesaris, it was an unreliable car and only finished one race.

Race history[edit]

The M186 was introduced partway through the 1986 Formula One season and was only raced by Andrea de Cesaris. His teammate Alessandro Nannini continued to campaign the Minardi M185B with which de Cesaris had started the year. The M186 was marginally better in qualifying than its predecessor, the M185B, and it had a best qualifying of 11th, in the Australian Grand Prix, the team's best grid placing in its history at the time. However, like the M185B, it was very unreliable and only finished one race, an eighth place at the Mexican Grand Prix. This was also de Cesaris' only finish of the year.[1]
