Chassis: B191-02
The second B191 built, this car was pressed into service for the third Grand Prix of the 1991 season at Imola where it was raced by Robert Moreno. It was then used by Nelson Piquet to score his very last Grand Prix victory, at Montréal in June of 1991. It was a surprise win as Nigel Mansell held a comfortable lead until he stalled the car in the final corner due to a premature celebratory wave. Piquet later finished fifth at Silverstone and eighth at Magny Cours before handing the car to his new team-mate Michael Schumacher for the final two rounds of the season. Retired from racing at the end of the year, chassis B192-02 served as a museum exhibit for many years. In 2016, it was completely rebuilt and restored to full running order.
