1986 Hungarian Grand Prix
It was the first Formula One Grand Prix to be held behind the Iron Curtain, the first Hungarian Grand Prix in 50 years and was attended by a record of 200,000 spectators from everywhere from the Eastern European communist countries. The race was notable for the battle between fierce Brazilian rivals Nelson Piquet and Ayrton Senna. Piquet, after an unsuccessful attempt on the previous lap, managed to pass the Lotus driver around the outside as they went into the first corner, and on opposite lock. He also came in for some criticism following the race as he had neglected to tell his team-mate Nigel Mansell about the benefits of a new differential which provided better grip on the slippery, dusty surface.
