Sunday 3rd June 1984
Alain Prost driving a McLaren-TAG Porsche MP4/2 won the Monaco Grand Prix. The race, held amidst heavy rain, was one of the most contentious in Formula One history. Pole-sitter Prost led the race from the start, while first corner contact between Ferrari’s René Arnoux and the Renault of Derek Warwick pitched the Englishman’s car into the fence on the outside of St. Devote and into the path of his team-mate Patrick Tambay. Both drivers suffered leg injuries, Warwick bruised his left leg while Tambay broke his leg after his car’s suspension punched through the carbon fibre monocoque, causing him to miss the next round in Canada.
