This one goes out to the girls at fuckyeahfrenchdrivers. Francois Hesnault, Monaco 1984.
Alain prost lead Nelson Piquet, seen here at Monaco, by two points before the final grand prix in 1983 at Kyalami and started the weekend well by out qualifying his opponents, Prost as well as third placed man Rene Arnoux for Ferrari (a further six points adrift), who were fifth and fourth whilst Piquet was on the front row.
The pressure was off, however, as first Arnoux and then later Prost both had their cars fail on them with Piquet’s third place more than enough to clinch the title.
Robert on his way to third at the principality.
He also scored a second place at Albert Park earlier in the season.
