The 1982 Monaco Grand Prix was in many ways an unusual race. It started to rain late in the race, and so race leader Alain Prost pushed to hard and spun into the barrier. Riccardo Patrese too spun, and stalled his Brabham BT49C.
Didier Pironi ran out of fuel in the tunnel on the last lap, as did Andrea de Cesaris before he even could take the lead. Mr. Patrese in the meantime managed to bump-start his car down a hill to go and win the race.
