Piquet won nine Vespas

In the 80's Piaggio launched a competition among the Formula 1 drivers. If you were the fastest in the qualifying, you won a Vespa in the "Piaggio Vespa Pole Position Trophy".
Nelson Piquet, the three times Formula 1-champion from Brazil, was in pole position nine times, and lay his hands on nine Vespas.
In the pic here is Alain Prost, according to the comment below, thanx. He obviously won at least once.
In 1985 Piaggio presented the T5 Pole Position, 11 hp at 6 700 rpm.
