This is the full length 1984 Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix, it features legendary drivers Alain Prost, Nigel Mansell, René Arnoux, Niki Lauda, Nelson Piquet, Keke Rosberg, Ayrton Senna and Martin Brundle.
It was one of the most controversial races of the 1980s due to the wet conditions and an early stoppage that favoured one driver over another – who was right on the leaders pipes when the race was red flagged.
I’m not going to tell you anymore, I don’t want to ruin it for you, but trust me when I tell you that this is one of those classic, electrifying Formula 1 races that everyone should watch at least once. This is the original BBC coverage and is commentated by the inimitable Murray Walker.
