Just how many racing drivers can you fit onto a moving Formula 1 car?

This one from the archives shows the slowing down lap at the end of the 1986 Mexican Grand Prix.  Rene Arnoux and Stefan Johansson are the two gentlemen sat on Philippe Alliot’s Ligier, with Nelson Piquet riding to the rescue in his Williams when Alliot’s car decides its life’s work has already been completed.

Keen followers of this blog, particularly those who were around to witness its original incarnation, might like to note that even fully laden, Nelson’s still going at a higher speed than his son used to manage.
