CONCIERGE – The F1 Inside Track - - RACING LINES -

Martin was a one-race re­place­ment for an ill Nigel Mansell at Wil­liams for the 1988 Belgium GP. That sea­son’s Wil­liams was not the best, but Martin im­me­di­ately showed his tal­ent by achiev­ing the fastest wet qual­i­fy­ing time (although it was made ir­rel­e­vant by the other ses­sion be­ing dry). He went on to fin­ish sev­enth in the race, a points-scor­ing po­si­tion in cur­rent terms. His tal­ent was clear, as is also shown by his Sports Car World Cham­pi­onship vic­tory that year.
