The 1993 Indianapolis 500

Emerson Fittipaldi led only 16 laps as one of 12 drivers who paced the 1993 event at one stage or another, but the all-important lap number 200 was included among them as the two-time Formula One World Champion from Brazil held off nine other drivers in a frantic sprint to the checkered flag following a late-race caution period. Immediately behind Fittipaldi at the finish were pole-sitter Arie Luyendyk, defending World Champion Nigel Mansell, Raul Boesel and another World Champion and former winner, Mario Andretti. The track had been slightly reconfigured with the installation of a separated “warm-up” lane and 24 of the 33 starters were still running at the end.
