Martin John Brundle (born 1 June 1959) is a British racing driver, best known as a Formula One driver and as a commentator for ITV Sport from 1997 to 2008, the BBC from 2009 to 2011 and Sky Sports from 2012.
Brundle contested the British Formula 3 Championship in 1983, finishing a close second to Ayrton Senna, and the two progressed to Formula One the next year. Brundle failed to score a victory at the top level of single seater racing, but he has been successful in other disciplines. He was the 1988 World Sportscar Champion, with a record points score, and won the 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans race for Jaguar Cars in a Jaguar XJR-12.
The 1992 Formula One season was the 43rd season of FIA Formula One motor racing. It featured the 1992 FIA Formula One World Championship, which commenced on 1 March 1992 and ended on 8 November after sixteen races. Nigel Mansell won the Drivers' Championship, and Williams-Renault won the Constructors' Championship, their first Constructors' Championship since 1987. Mansell became the first driver in Formula One history to win nine races in a single season. He sealed the title as early as in August. Reigning champion Ayrton Senna managed three race wins but trailed Mansell, Riccardo Patrese and young German Michael Schumacher in the championship. Schumacher took his first race win of 91 at the Belgian Grand Prix.
