Sunday 21st March 1982
Alain Prost put on a strong performance in his Renault at the Brazilian Grand Prix, taking pole, setting fastest lap and winning the event, though by the disqualification of Piquet, in 1:44:33. John Watson had a great drive to finish second after starting 12th on the grid. Nigel Mansell also had a fine finish in third after starting from the 14th spot. Nelson Piquet in his Brabham, would have won but he was DQ’d but was underweight. Keke Rosberg in his Williams also suffered a similar fate for second place.
