Alessandro Nannini’s one and only Formula 1 win at the 1989 Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka came in the wake of Ayrton Senna being disqualified. After clashing with Alain Prost, Senna rejoined the race in a way allegedly giving him an advantage according to the stewards of the meeting. The incident and the controversial decision gave Alain Prost his third title. Years after Ayrton Senna's death, Max Mosley admitted that his predecessor as FIA president, Jean-Marie Balestre, orchestrated the whole process in an unfair manner against Senna.
