The 1985 Monaco Grand Prix, otherwise officially known as the 44e Grand Prix Automobile de Monaco, was the fourth round of the 1986 FIA Formula One World Championship, staged on the 11 May 1986 at the Circuit de Monaco in Monte Carlo.[1] The race would see Alain Prost claim his third consecutive victory in Monaco, which was the first to feature the extended Nouvelle chicane on the harbour-front.[1]

Qualifying had seen Prost claim pole position for McLaren-TAG Porsche, beating Nigel Mansell in the Williams-Honda by almost half a second.[1] Ayrton Senna was next for Lotus-Renault, while Michele Alboreto did just enough to beat the Benetton-BMW of Gerhard Berger.[1]

The start of the race proved fairly tame, with Prost sprinting away at the head of the field, while Senna jumped Mansell.[1] The rest of the field gave chase largely in grid order, although Jacques Laffite was at the back of the pack after stalling in the formation lap.[1]

The opening stages of the race saw no real change to the order, with Prost inching away from Senna, Mansell and Alboreto, while Keke Rosberg moved ahead of Berger.[1] Indeed, those two would provide most of the early action, with Rosberg attacking Alboreto, while Berger fell behind Riccardo Patrese.[1]

Rosberg would quickly catch and pass Mansell, prompting the Brit to pit for fresh tyres and rejoin behind Alboreto in fifth.[1] Prost would come in a few laps later, briefly handing the lead to Senna, although once the stops were over the Brazilian had slipped behind both Prost and Rosberg.[1]

Once again the race settled into a rather tepid pace, with Prost easing away from Rosberg and Senna.[1] Behind, however, there would be a spectacular accident at Mirabeau, with Patrick Tambay getting launched into a somersault after contact with Martin Brundle.[1] Fortunately both drivers would escape uninjured, although both the Lola-Ford Cosworth and the Tyrrell-Renault were ruined.[1]

With that the race was run, with Prost collecting fastest lap en-route to his second win of the season, and third in Monte Carlo.[1] Rosberg was 25 seconds back in second ahead of Senna and Mansell, while René Arnoux and Laffite picked their way into fifth and sixth as others retired ahead of the them.[1]

BackgroundEdit

Nelson Piquet had moved level with Championship leader Ayrton Senna after claiming second in San Marino, with the pair locked together on fifteen points. Race winner Alain Prost, meanwhile, had closed to within two points of the Brazilians in third, while Nigel Mansell and Gerhard Berger were seven further back in fourth and fifth. Elsewhere, Stefan Johansson and Riccardo Patrese had claimed their first points of the campaign in Imola, meaning there had been twelve different scorers in three races.

The Constructors Championship had seen some significant shuffling as a result of the battle of Imola, with Williams-Honda having emerged at the head of the field. They left Italy with a three point lead over McLaren-TAG Porsche, while former leaders Lotus-Renault had slipped to third, six off the new leaders. Elsewhere, Benetton-BMW were up to fourth ahead of Ligier-Renault, while Ferrari were finally on the board in sixth.
