Sports Personality: F1 driver Nigel Mansell wins in 1986

As BBC Sport celebrates 60 years of Sports Personality of the Year, we visit the archive to remember the achievements of all the previous winners.

In 1986, British racing driver Nigel Mansell was named Sports Personality of the Year.

In one of the tightest world championships in history, Mansell narrowly lost out to Alain Prost in the final race of the season.

However, he remains the most successful British Formula 1 driver of all-time in terms of race wins with 31 victories.

BBC Sports Personality of the Year will celebrate its 60th show when the 2013 event is broadcast live from Leeds on Sunday 15 December from 1940 GMT on BBC One. Further coverage on the BBC Sport website and Radio 5 live.
