When angry Mansell told journo to 'see a psychiatrist'


On this day in 1992, Nigel Mansell conquered his fourth consecutive win of the season when he dominated his rivals and the elements in the Spanish GP at Barcelona.

It was a lights-to-flag win for our Nige but one that was made quite difficult in the latter stages of the race by a torrential downpour that drenched the Circuit de Catalunya.

But Mansell put Williams' FW14B engineering marvel to good use in the changing conditions, so much so that a journalist in the post-race press conference suggested the Briton enjoyed an unfair advantage over the field thanks to the car's active suspension.

An irked Mansell rolled his eyes and fired back: "Is he on the same planet or not?" he quipped. "Are you serious, my friend? If you are, you should see a psychiatrist. You're stupid."
