    I don’t think this is Australia 1991 – that race was conducted in heaving rain. There are yellow Lotuses on the grid and the McLarens are numbered 11 and 12 (and that’s Prost in the lead), so I think this is 1988…

    Great picture though.

      You’re absolutely right. Not only the weather, but Prost switched to Ferrari for the 1991 season and nether he nor Senna have the number 1 on their cars, indicating it was before the McLaren “four-peet” of championships from ’88 through ’91. Piquet is in the number 1 Lotus as defending World Champion. Thanks!
