Mansell wins from pole

Nigel Mansell won the Altech Grand Prix Masters in Kyalami on Sunday in front of a crowd of 70,000. The 30 lap race was a fight between Mansell and Emerson Fittipaldi.

"I started on pole and that was the critical factor today given how hard I was pushed by Emerson," Mansell said. "He just didn't give up and nor did I expect him to. I tried to break-away from him but he just kept his nose behind my car and on a couple of occasions made moves on the inside of corners."

Riccardo Patrese finished third.
