The 1982 Monaco Grand Prix was one of the strangest, most exciting and unpredictable races in formula one history. Rene Arnoux in his turbocharged Renault started on pole. He made a successful early lead, but his consistent run of form was thrown away on lap 15. He span in the middle of the Piscine complex and stalled his car, frustratingly ending his campaign. Alain Prost in the sister Renault, inherited the lead from the tarnished Rene Arnoux. By lap 74 Prost crashed out of the race in dramatic fashion, losing control at the harbour chicane. He gifted the lead to Ricardo Patrese. Who on the next lap span out at the Grand Hotel Hairpin!!! He was lucky to get going again, but had lost lots of ground. Didier Pironi in the number 28 Ferrari then claimed the lead, who looked calm, collected and ready to get his second F1 win. But with a shock twist, the third leader in two laps ran out of petrol. Andrea Decessaris would have taken the lead, but then he crashed out of the race. Adding a further twist, the Irishman Derek Daly would have taken the lead. But after suffering significant car damage, he retired to. This extraordinary race didn't seem to want a winner to cross the line. But the man who spun out, Ricardo Patrese, had recovered from his unfortunate spin, drive past all the stricken leaders and won his first ever formula one race. Monaco doesn't usually hold thriller races. But please, never underestimate what could happen. Monaco is often criticised for its dreariness and processional races, but the Monaco Grand Prix doesn't fail to surprise. That's one of the reasons why I love it.
