1989 Monaco Grand Prix


1989 Monaco Grand Prix


1-DVD (136 Minutes)

This is the complete race as broadcast on LIVE TV.


Ayrton Senna qualifies on pole again, with Alain Prost 2nd. Before the start of the race Riccardo Patrese
failed to get his Renault engine fired up and so had to start from the back of the grid. Senna would take
the lead from the start, and he never looked back. Alain Prost would hold onto 2nd place as the
McLaren-Honda Team dominated the race. Gerhard Berger had suffered a serious accident prior to this
race at the San Marino Grand Prix in Imola where he suffered second degree burns to his hands, and a
broken rib. Because of his injuries he could not race at Monaco (but he was in attendance). That left
Ferrari with only one driver in this race, that being Nigel Mansell.

1989 was the year Ferrari introduced paddle-shifting, allowing their drivers to keep both hands on
the wheel while shifting gears. Meanwhile, Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost were no longer on speaking
terms at Team McLaren. As the year progressed, Senna would end up winning more races than Prost,
but Prost would capture the World Championship.

This is the complete race as shown on live TV, with commentary by Murray Walker and James Hunt.
