Motorcycle News (UK) - - The Decades 1956-2006 -

Au­gust 6, 1986 “Joey Dun­lop clinched his fifth world For­mula One cham­pi­onship in Fin­land on Sun­day – and didn’t even know he’d done it! When he fin­ished the 31-lap race on the three-mile Ima­tra pub­lic roads cir­cuit, he thought he’d fin­ished se­cond be­hind fel­low Ul­ster­man Neil Robin­son. Slowed by a soft tyre, Robin­son had man­fully strug­gled around the last few laps to fin­ish third.”
