Riccardo scored his sixth and final Grand Prix victory on the 25 1992 Japanese GP
Riccardo Patrese, unlike some of his colleagues, is not a man ever to sing his own praises, but after this race he rightly said he felt he was due a victory. ‘Now that I know a few things that happened in this race, I have to thank Nigel for helping me to win. In the Williams-Renault team, we have all worked very hard this year. Of course, he is World Champion, and he has been the strongest driver of the season, but all season long I have been thinking about winning a race. And I think, at least for the amount of work I have done for the team, to help it succeed, I think I deserve it."
Everyone in the place went along with that. While not a memorable day, in terms of racing, it was good to see a fine man rewarded at last.
