Motor Racing: Johnny Herbert


Johnny, who is nowadays part of Sky TV's F1 Team, won 3 Formula 1 Grand Prix in the course of his career, including the British Grand Prix. Yet it is a fourth place finish that sticks in his mind when sharing magic memories.

"We did okay in qualifying, I managed 12th place on the grid and out qualified my team mate Alessandro Nannini, which didn't go down too well with the Italian camp, Benetton being an Italian team! It was Flavio Briatore's first race and clearly he was expecting Alessandro to beat me, so it didn't exactly go to plan for the team, but I was happy of course. It did though give me my first insight into what was to come in being the second driver in a team managed by Flavio."
