Sadly, there will be no US Grand Prix this year.
Ecclestone (blecch) didn't think the Indianapolis Motor Speedway "did enough" to promote the event.
Ironically, Tony George traveled to Europe last fall to receive an award for doing the best job among
all the F1 venues for promotion.
The general belief is that F1 will be back at IMS, and locally, we'll be very glad to have them.
Results from the 1984 Formula One Monaco Grand Prix held at Monaco on June 3, 1984.
Prost led the race, run in heavy rain, from pole position. He was passed on lap nine by Nigel Mansell,
leading a Grand Prix for the first time, when Prost was delayed by Corrado Fabi's stalled Brabham just
before the tunnel. Mansell pulled away from Prost at around two seconds per lap, before going off six laps later on the run up to Casino Square, damaging his car and retiring from the race.
Prost assumed the lead again, now from Ayrton Senna, who, in his rookie season in a generally uncompetitive Toleman car, was rapidly catching him. Clerk of the Course Jacky Ickx decided that conditions were too poor for the race to continue. The red flag to stop the race was shown at the end
of the 32nd lap. Senna passed Prost's slowing McLaren at the finish line, but according to the rules,
the positions counted are those from the previous lap 31, at which point Prost was still leading.
The stoppage was controversial, as it benefitted Alain Prost with a Porsche-designed engine, and was made by Ickx, a Porsche employee in sports car racing.
It has been remarked that had the race been allowed to continue until 75% of the laps, full points would have been awarded and Prost could have had 6 points from a 2nd place instead of 4.5 points from the win. Ironically Prost would lose the championship to Niki Lauda by half a point.
