Video: Revisiting the 1987 Detroit F1 Grand Prix
There was once a point in time when the Formula 1 calendar had Detroit, Michigan as one of its race cities. And while that’s not the case now, the Detroit Grand Prix offered plenty of memorable races, one of which was in 1987 when a roster of some of the most famous Formula 1 drivers took to the grid to compete in a pretty eventful race from start to finish.
Ayrton Senna was there. Alain Prost was there too. So were Nigel Mansell, Nelson Piquet, and Gerhard Berger. Between those five drivers, you can count 11 World Championships, hundreds of wins and podium finishes, and unmeasurable amounts of hardcore F1 racing.
In this video, we take a look back at the 1987 Detroit Grand Prix in all its retro glory. All five of the aforementioned champions all participated in the race, making it one of the very few times that Formula 1 had so many Driver’s Champions in one grid competing at the same time.
The video covers the entirety of the race, so if you’ve got 90 minutes to spare, it’s a must-watch for any true racing aficionado.
