The Mexican Grand Prix was the fifteenth race of the 1986 Formula 1 World Championship, and was won by Gerhard Berger in his Benetton-BMW. It was the first victory in the Austrian driver's long career and the first success in the history of the Anglo-Italian team.
The Benetton B186, equipped with BMW's turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, is remembered for its striking decoration with multicolored "flames" on the engine cover and on both sides. For the race, in anticipation of high temperatures and to avoid the risk of overheating problems, the team removed the characteristic side grilles on the right side, leaving the radiator, engine and all internal wiring visible. During the 1986 season, the second driver of the Benetton team was the Italian driver Teo Fabi, whose best result was a fifth place in the Spanish Grand Prix held at the Jerez circuit.
