    Background: MONTE CARLO, MONACO

    World champion leader Alain Prost driving a McLaren/TAG-Porsche won the Monaco Grand Prix on June 3. The race was stopped in torrential rain before the half-way mark with only nine out of twenty starters still running. With the track wet from the start, British driver Derek Warwick slid into the barrier on the first corner, putting his Renault out of the race. Patrick Tambay crashed into Warwick's car and suffered a similar fate. Prost took the lead from the start but was closely followed by Nigel Mansell in a Lotus Renault. On Lap eleven, Mansell found a way past Prost but moments later his car jerked violently right going up a hill and he crashed into the barriers, leaving his car helplessly entangled in the fence with a damaged wing and punctured tyre and Prost once again the lead. Reigning World Champion Nelson Piquet's car was one of many machines to break down in the appalling weather conditions. Ayton Senna Da Silva, a Brazilian driving a Toleman-Hart slipped into second place and was pushing Prost hard when race controller Jacky Ickx, himself a former racing driver, stopped the race due to the dangerous amount of water on the track. Only half championship points were awarded.
