Happy birthday Nelson
Nelson Piquet, the World Champion of 1981, 1983 and 1987, is 50 today and no doubt there will be considerable celebrating in Brazil. Piquet retired from F1 at the end of 1991 and went to America where he suffered serious leg injuries in a big crash at Indianapolis. He has since recovered and has been running a successful truck-tracking satellite business, while also looking after the career of his son Nelson Junior.
