Mansell to race for Ferrari

Nigel Mansell will race a Scuderia Ecosse Ferrari 430 GT car in the FIA GT Championship race at Silverstone on May 6. It is 15 years since Mansell won the Formula 1 World Championship and 12 since he departed F1 after an embarrassing interlude with McLaren. He returned to racing three years later taking part in three British Touring Car races in a Ford Mondeo. In 2004 he popped up again driving a Jordan in the London F1 demonstration in Regent Street and has since become a shareholder and driver in the Grand Prix Masters series. Now 53, Mansell is also keeping an eye on his two sons who have jumped into British Formula 3 this year, despite not making much of an impact in Formula BMW last year.
