The 1990 Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix was a tempestuous event, it included one of the most significant first lap incidents in the history of the small European principality’s race. The drivers include Ayrton Senna, Gerhard Berger, Alain Prost, Jean Alesi, Riccardo Patrese, Nigel Mansell, Nelson Piquet and 23 others – the full field was 30 drivers strong.

The race was one for the record books, the astonishing performance from the young Jean Alesi clearly took Senna off guard and the two men had a remarkable battle around the tight, twisty circuit. The race is commentated on here by the unbeatable BBC team of Murray Walker and James Hunt, two men who’s voices narrated some of the most iconic races in the recent history of the sport.
