Forza Andrea!

Andrea De Cesaris Look back

Pirelli tyres were working wonders at Phoenix, Arizona in 1990, with Andrea de Cesaris almost hitting the jackpot in BMS Scuderia Italia’s unfancied Dallara-Ford. Having qualified third, the Italian was challenging for the podium until he suffered an engine failure on Lap 25. De Cesaris’ performance was all the more remarkable considering that team-mate Gianni Morbidelli had not even managed to qualify.
