     Home | Grand Prix race report | 1990 Portuguese Grand Prix

The 1990 Portuguese Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held on 23 September 1990 at Autódromo do Estoril. It was the thirteenth round of the 1990 Formula One season. The race was the 19th Portuguese Grand Prix and the seventh to be held at Estoril. It was held over 61 laps, of a scheduled 71 laps, of the four kilometre circuit for a race distance of 266 kilometres. The race was declared early after an accident involving Italian driver Alex Caffi in an Arrows A11B and Japanese driver Aguri Suzuki in a Lola LC90.

British driver Nigel Mansell took his only victory of the season in his Ferrari 641, and his last for Scuderia Ferrari. He finished over two seconds ahead of Brazilian driver and series points leader Ayrton Senna driving a McLaren MP4/5B. Mansell's team mate French driver Alain Prost kept his fading championship hopes alive with a third placed finish. The gap though was now 18 points. A win for Senna at any of the three remaining races would secure his second world championship.
