On This Day


Sunday 14th June 1992

Gerhard Berger driving a McLaren-Honda MP4/7A won the Canadian Grand Prix held in Montreal. At the start Senna took the lead from the two Williams-Renaults with Mansell getting ahead of Patrese then Berger, Schumacher, Herbert and Brundle. For the first 13 laps the top 8 followed in close attention until next lap 14 Mansell tried to overtake Senna at the last chicane but the car ended off track and spun and came to a stop on the main straight. The Williams driver was out of the race and accusing Senna of pushing him off. As this was happening Berger had got Patrese to make it a McLaren 1-2. Lap 18 saw the exit of Capelli who crashed hard into the wall on the exit of turn 4. On lap 37 Senna retired from the lead with electrical problems. Berger had by now pulled a couple of seconds lead on Patrese who was being chased by Brundle after the Englishman had taken advantage of Schumacher getting stuck behind Morbidelli's Minardi while lapping him. A few laps later Patrese was out as his gearbox failed. Brundle now chased after Berger and set fastest lap but then was also forced to retire with transmission problems. Berger was in comfortable lead followed by Schumacher. Katayama was driving a good race but had to retire from 5th on lap 61 when his engine expired.
